Hey guys,

Im new here. My name is Greg. I have been interested in joining the SCCA for awhile. How do i go about joining. I have a 95' Camaro.I have been around all sorts of racing. I have ridin in several well built muscle cars around the auto cross. I excited to get to put my camaro through its paces. I am a member on frrax.com. I do not have any experience running the cones. I know I have to attend a class or two before I drive the course but im willing to learn and I know the best improvement I can do(other than the work ive done to the car)is seat time. thanks for reading.

Welcome. The cones can be addicting. There are no required classes, but be sure to watch the schedule for the OVR Drivers School and enter that if you can. Our Chairman, Tech and Novice chiefs (Bellboy, Splash & BeerMan) haunt this forum regularly, along with a few other knowledgeable folks, and can be a great help so don't hesitate to ask questions and participate.

Enjoy. The season schedule will be coming soon.

Greg,
As stated above, watch here for the schedule to be placed in the next couple of months or so. Then show up at the event and ASK questions until you get answers. Sometimes it can be confusing when you first arrive.

Before the 2010 season starts there is great info here:   http://www.ovr-scca.org/_autocross/schedules.asp


This is not from Ohio Valley Region so a few minors differences will apply, but it is such good information that we asked the "Rocky Mountain" group for permission to link to their site:   http://www.rmsolo.org/rmsoloschool/index.html

Yeah, when Rich started the tires were still square, round tires didn't show up for few more years.  Then Hollis decided to fabricate a factory TSB about round tires being standard and everything went downhill from there Cheesy

For a not very fast old guy, I seem to do OK against the up and comer's.

Except Aaron.

Well, and maybe Tom O'Gorman. 

Come to think of it, AJ has had me on PAX a few times...

Well, there are still a few folks slower than me.

I'm Gary with the silver Corvette. I was a newbie last year. Great group of people here. You'll enjoy yourself. I think the plan is for me to be grid steward next year. So when it's your turn to run, by all means, look me up.

That's code for "Run me over."

You can also find BeerMan easily.  Just follow the trail of oil to a multi-hued Corvette.  He is usually standing behind it, both hands on the back, pushing it on to the trailer.

Yeah, seriously, Beerman is the nicest guy in the world, but if you want a good run, better hope you get out before him. He cheats by laying down massive oil slicks. His logic, it's not SPECIFICALLY forbidden in the rules! While we all admire his initiative and outside the box thinking, somehow it just seems against the spirit of competition.
