The St. Louis and Southern Illinois Regions of the Sports Car Club of America will host the SCCA Mid-States Conference Majors race weekend May 14-15, 2016 on the Circuit of St. Louis at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, IL.  The race weekend is presented by, one of the largest resellers of used IT gear in the Midwest, and one of the premier IT Asset Recovery Solution providers in the United States.

Competitors from across the country will compete for series points to not only win in their class but also become eligible for the 2016 SCCA Runoffs presented by Garmin VIRB in September at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Complex.  There are six national champions (with 15 national titles) and six track record holders entered.  Car classes range from formula cars to American sedans, all racing wheel-to-wheel on the Circuit of St. Louis road course.

The luau-themed, “luau in the Lou” will also include a bon voyage party Saturday evening for St. Louis Region Lifetime Member Carol Cohn.  Cohn will be moving to live with her son Bryan Cohn.  She was the first recipient of the SCCA National Member of Excellence Award in 2008 and an integral part of St. Louis Region for over 50 years.

Qualifying begins Saturday and Sunday morning at 8 am with races beginning before lunch each day.  A charity drive-around is planned during lunch each day where spectators can take their passenger vehicle on the Circuit of St. Louis for a minimum donation of $5 (all vehicles will follow a pace car and all passengers are required to be belted in).

They are looking for individuals who are interested in volunteering both days.  Volunteers are needed from 7 am – 5 pm each day and are provided lunch both days and dinner Saturday night.  Trained volunteers in the fire, rescue, towing, and emergency care are especially needed.  To learn more email or register online at
