Yes it will be the same format as years past but with 6 solo 2's and 2 solo 1's to mix it up! The solo 1 we did in November went so smoothly, with the addition of lapping, was really well attended, and many have asked not only for it again but more. So, Randy and Rich have agreed to step it up and are doing it! I'm very pleased to see.

Thanks! I had a great time this year. I think I was just lucky it didn't rain for the first 6 events. Looking forward to more Solo I events.

Randy's done all the work towards next years events so far, and cudo's to a great schedule, I just hope I have the new car built in time, otherwise I'm drivinging the Cady-leans CTS at the DDT events, and not sure what I'll be darting cones with the rest of the year.

Congrats to Jon A on this season, And congrats to Scott at a 2nd 2nd place 2 years in a row!

I'm looking forward to this season. I'll have some new grippy tires this season rather than some hard, cracked, 10 year old tires. Should be fun!

Historically we followed Trillium Solo rules that yes had the influence of BMWCCA which was influenced by SCCA. Randy and Rich are at the helm this year, and I'll be advising. There has been no discussion to change the format at this time.

well, the website has links to the SCCA (USA) rules but at the same time has a link to the CASC (Canadian) Car Classification Worksheet... a little confusing.

The website should be corrected to represent the SCCA car class worksheet... if we are staying with SCCA rules.

I think going to the CASC rules would be better for everyone this year because a lot of regulars have cars with only a few mods (intake/lowering springs/tower brace/braided lines/bushing material) that would put them in Super-Stock instead of using the present rules (SCCA) would put them in the Street-Prepared class.

just a thought... either way the website should be updated.
