SCCA Road Racing | Our club road racing program, a division of the SCCA....

where drivers compete wheel to wheel on dedicated race tracks with the occasional temporary street circuit. 

In order to compete, there are licensing requirements in place to keep you safe, while giving you proper skills to build on your talents.

The choice of car is up to you, there are many different classes, from production based entry level racing to fully modified purpose built machines that are only at home on a dedicated race surface. 

The SCCA road racing program is divided into three components, Regional, National, and the new one called the 'Majors'.

Club racing is built around the people that put on the events, we are amateurs.  It is important to note that many professional race car drivers got their start with their local regions, just ask them on Facebook.

The most prestigious yearly event for club road racing is the National Runoffs, which this year is going to be at a new venue, Mazda Laguna Seca in California.  It has been a very long time since it was on the west coast.  

SCCA road racing blogWe are sending two Land O' Lakes members to cover the runoffs so stay tuned and don't forget to sign up for out blog posts below.  no spam here, just racing news.

SCCA Minnesota | Just what are the classes that compete in road racing?

The following categories define the 27 classes that compete in SCCA Club Racing National events throughout the year and their participation totals determine which will take part in the Runoffs:

• Production – Series produced cars which are allowed a range of performance modifications while retaining their original design, structure and drive layout;
• Formula – The six formula classes are all single-seat, open-wheel race cars;
• Prototype – Purpose-built road racing cars with full composite bodies, yet underneath, these cars are pure racing machines;
• Sedan – Comprised of American muscle cars such as Camaros, Firebirds, GTOs and Mustangs with production-based chassis and modified suspensions and brakes;
• Touring – High performance cars which, because of their performance potential, required some changes to their wheel/tires and suspension components;
• Grand Touring – Purpose-built, highly-modified “silhouette” replicas of series-produced sports sedans;
• Super Touring – Designed to allow late-model production-based cars more extensive modifications such as including wings, engine swaps, etc.,
• Spec Miata – Provides the opportunity to compete in low cost, production-based cars with limited modifications, suitable for racing competition.

The best way to better understand these categories is to visit us when we are in our element, at the racetrack.  Talk to as many people as you can to better understand their passion and see how it aligns up with yours....you might be competitors and just in need of the right car to show up and win.
