Hallett is installing a tunnel! Click here to see pics.

The new tunnel runs under the Martin House Straight before Turn 10.
No more waiting for a session to end to get in or out!

Rich Bireta receives Barnato Award; Charlie Clark, Mark Weber inducted in SCCA Hall of Fame

Rallyist Rich Bireta received SCCA’s highest honor, the Woolf Barnato Award for contributions to the club, on the opening day of SCCA’s virtual National Convention Jan. 21. Bireta, a member of both Kansas City and Kansas Regions, was cited not only for his many years’ involvement with the SCCA rally program but also for developing technology making rallies easier to conduct which are in use at both top-level series and in low-level regional events.

The five 2022 inductees of the SCCA Hall of Fame include Kansas City Region’s Charlie Clark and St. Louis Region’s Mark Weber. Clark’s involvement in both solo and road racing include multiple Solo National Championships and Runoffs finishes, as well as serving as event co-chair of two Solo Nationals and four terms on the SCCA Board of Directors. Weber’s resumé includes being the official photographer of several major SCCA series and hundreds of club racing events, and publication in numerous magazines and other media, as well as a competition record of more than 600 races in the EP, FP, GP and HP classes in which he would sometimes run two races in a day in the same car after a lightning engine swap.

CLASS GROUPINGS FOR 2022 MIDIV RACING

Group 1 [Spec Miata & SRF] — SM, SRF3, *SM5, *SRF, *ITB, *ITC
Group 2 [Bigbore] – °GTX, GT1, GT2, GT3, AS, °PX, T1, *SP, *GTA

Group 6 [Small Formula] — FF, FV, F500, *FST, *Legends
° Majors class but not Runoffs-eligible — * Divisional-only (non-Runoffs) class

For 2022 the MiDiv class groupings are aligned with the Majors groupings, and then the non-Runoffs classes are added in. While these are recommended as minimum groupings for MiDiv Races, individual races may group classes as best fits their program.

Ownership of a reserved number is not a guarantee of being able to use that number at any given race. It is recommended drivers have alternate numbers in mind with a plan of how to change it so it is most legible to timing, corners, etc. The easiest alternative may simply be to add a “1” to the front of the number making it a 3-digit number allowed in the GCR. 100-series numbers will not be sold in MiDiv.

At the end of the season, MidAm Championship awards are sent to the drivers’ Regional Executives for presentation at Regional award banquets. A driver must finish top-3 in class and make at least three starts in MiDiv races at two tracks sanctioned by two different Regions in the same class to be eligible for awards.

The 2022 MiDiv “Number Season” is now under way. All MiDiv competition license holders as of Jan. 3 (including Novice Permits and Vintage licenses), have been sent a letter – in the mail Jan. 3 – outling the Reserved Number program, the MidAm Championship, and qualification for the 2022 National Championship Runoffs, along with the Reserved Number application/renewal form.

Drivers who held numbers in 2021 will have them held until Feb. 28 (if used at least three times) or Jan. 15 otherwise. Number season ends Feb. 28, after which all unclaimed numbers become available. No numbers are issued after Sept. 1.

If you have questions, or did not receive the letter and want one, please contact me.
