Just what is the “Club Racing Experience”?

March 10, 2014

Get on track, in wheel-to-wheel racing, in the simplest manner possible – enter the Club Racing Experience April 26/27, 2014. Getting on track to race is now EASY. No license is needed; no doctor’s forms; no annual tech needed; and if your low horsepower race car is out of date on seat belts, as long as it’s safe, it can race.

In an effort to increase awareness of the new Club Racing Experience (CRE) program, the St. Louis SCCA Region is offering a low price to any CRE entry in the April 26-27, 2014 event. The entry will be $155 for one day and $250 for both days.

Cars: CRE is a wheel-to-wheel racing experience for low to mid horsepower, non-formula race cars. Typical allowable race cars are Spec Miata, ITA/B/C/D, FProd, HProd, GTLite or any other production based race car that runs lap times 1:15 or slower at Gateway. [Formula cars, super cars and V8 race cars are prohibited – simply for safety.] Even some Chump and Lemons cars fit the qualification of a safe, low horsepower race car. Hum?

Drivers: CRE is a place for drivers WITHOUT a racing license to run on-track in a controlled race experience. Your friends, crew, family or maybe another driver CAN drive your race car with little risk and with few barriers to entry. Safety is utmost concern in REX. Spins, wheels off track and aggressive driving are specifically prohibited.

With the inclusive nature of the CRE program, a race car that has not been run for a few years can also participate, as long as it is safe! The seat belts do not need to be up to GCR date standards and the vehicle does not need to have an annual tech. Just safe. In fact, the race car does not even need to have a logbook, helpful if you can’t find the logbook after 4-5 yrs in the garage.

Do I need a doctor’s physical to participate in CRE? No. Just sign a form stating that you are in good physical health with no known medical issues that will affect your ability to drive. It’s that simple.

Club Race Experience is a simple method to get on track in a safe and fun manner to do actual wheel-to-wheel racing. St. Louis SCCA is making racing simpler, safe and fun for all.
