Getting ready for Solo Novice School a number of years away. 3
REPort Mike Toombs Regional Executive To start things off – it doesn’t look like we will be having our picnic/car show on July 12th. We hope to do the tour at a later date. Do we still want to do a picnic in July? As I stated in my column last month I would like to see more people take an interest in the club and come to the meetings. Will a picnic bring the people out to a meeting? I’m not sure. As much as I would like to make the decision myself I’m afraid I’m still a little disappointed in the membership and would assume the worst and we would still only have the same people at the picnic. So as much as I would like to promote a picnic for our July meeting I can’t do it right now. The board will discuss it at our May meeting and we will let you know. Now what do I say – other things are going along ﬁne. The board approved the budget for the 2011 Solo Series and the Glen National Race, so both of them are moving forward. The Solo program had their first event and the novice school the day before. Both events were well attended with the novice school being fully subscribed and close to 110 competitors at the Solo. Brian Buchman has been able to get some interested sponsors for the series this year. If you get a chance you should check out the FLR YouTube page (www.youtube.com/user/ﬂrscca) to see a short video that MotoOption, one of the sponsors, put together. It’s pretty good. Doyle Chevrolet Subaru (where I bought my Subaru) is the series major sponsor and they had two cars at the event. Doyle’s website is: www. doyle.subarusdc.com. I was afraid to go over and look for fear that I would buy 4
another Subaru. It was a lot tougher just watching at the event than I thought it would be. I did start autocrossing back in the dark ages when the rulebook was MUCH smaller than it is today and to miss an event was difﬁcult, maybe I’ll make it to the next one. The second RallyCross event scheduled for May 21 was cancelled due to course conditions. It has been awhile since our ﬁrst event. The problem with these events is that either the ﬁeld has to be frozen or dry or we can’t run. The program keeps growing in the Northeast Division (NEDiv) and I would like to see our program to continue to grow. As you are aware I have been ﬁghting a battle trying to get all of the division activities under the same banner – NEDiv. But I’m running out of steam, there seems to be a few people who would like to see the division as one, but most don’t care. Carl & Kathy Matuszek have always done a great job with the NESCCA website and I appreciate what they have done. They like, MaryAnne and the FLR website, are always looking for more content. If you want to go to the NEDiv website you can now go to www. NEDiv.com as well as www.nescca. com. If you can explain to me why we shouldn’t all be under the same banner, please do. I would like to know. Speaking of NEDiv business, the NEDiv solo website has been decommissioned due to lack of interest, in case you were interested. The NEDiv Solo championships are going to be the last weekend of July at the Seneca Army Depot. It’s unfortunate that we, as the hosting region, couldn’t ﬁnd any chairs for the event. Oh well, I shouldn’t be surprised. Don’t misunderstand me, I appreciate everyone who steps up and helps out and there are too many to list here. I just wish more people would take an interest. If you hadn’t guessed, I’m trying. Until next month...... Mike
Meeting Minutes Finger Lakes Region, SCCA General Membership Meeting Minutes May 3, 2011 Location: Burgundy Basin Inn, 1361 Marsh Road, Pittsford, New York 14534 Regional Executive Mike Toombs called the meeting to order at 8:09 p.m. There were 20 members in attendance at the Solo and general membership meetings. Because the majority had not received the May issue of Top End, approval of the April general membership meeting minutes will be postponed until the June meeting. (See Top End below.) The following are arranged by topic and may not be in chronological order. Activities The July membership meeting has been moved from July 5 to July 12. It will be a picnic meeting at Gary Morgan’s barn. Gary has quite a collection of cars and John Deere
PROVIDING THE RACING COMMUNITY WITH INSURANCE AND DISABILITY INCOME FOR OVER 40 YEARS. June 2011
equipment. The region will provide hots and hamburgers, bring your own drinks, a dish to pass and chair. Canopies will be provided. There will be a short business meeting. Festivities will start around 6:30. There will be a ﬂyer in Top End and interactive directions will be available in the forums on ﬂr-scca. com. (Note: The garage tour/picnic may be moved to a later date due to work on the building. Sec.) The September meeting will be an “Old Timer’s” meeting. We are hoping for lots of bench racing from vintage racers, rallyist, soloists and ? Membership Report Mike Brunner reported that the number of region members was up one from the April number to 453. All weekend membership forms need to go one copy to Mike Brunner and the other to Elizabeth Thiel. This should be done as soon as possible after an event. There were 30 or more issued at the Solo events the weekend of April 30 – May 1. Race Report Equipment has been purchased to provide RMONITOR access in the tower, the garage and pit areas to those with wireless capable computers. This is in addition to the equipment that we currently have. RMONITOR is a live race-reporting program that is part of the MYLAPS race software. Glen National Race Chris DeMinco has most of the positions filled for the race. The supplemental regulations are written. Registration information, etc. should be up on the Internet soon. Fun One Russell Jaslow is chairing the Fun One with Wilma Giesy assisting. We are investigating associated series and the Kryder series to the Fun One. Westward Ho The board is looking at running Westward Ho in 2012.
Rally Report Summer RoadRally Rick Barnes is rallymaster for “Clean Out the Cobwebs!” on May 22nd. Registration opens at Tom Wahl’s, 283 East Main St. Avon, NY at noon. First car off at 1:15pm and will ﬁnish about 2:45pm. This is a social tour rally of less than 60 miles. The Relay for Life charity rally benefiting the Tioga County Cancer Society will run Friday, June 3, afternoon. Registration opens at 11:00 am at the Tioga County Fairgrounds. Matt Rhoads, with help from John Kastenhuber, is rallymaster. (A ﬂyer for this event is printed in the June issue of Top End. Ed.). Information and an interactive entry form are available at www.stpr. org/stpr11/charityrally.html RallyCross The next RallyCross, at Perry’s Park is scheduled for May 21. In conjunction with STPR®, there will be a RallyCross Test-n’-Tune Friday morning, June 3, with the competition event on Saturday afternoon. James Quattro of the Central New York region is chairing this event. The Central New York region is promoting both the RallyCross and Relay for Life Rally and will be paying for the SCCA weekend memberships for both events. See the STPR website for further information. Registration is through motorsportreg. com. Solo Report Brian Buchman reported on the Solo activities. The Saturday, April 30 novice school at Rochester Institute of Technology had 34 students. The workers and instructors worked out well; everyone had a good time. The ﬁrst event of the season held Sunday, May 1 at RIT had 109 entrants. MotoOption Clothing (www.motooption. com) is a sponsor of the 2011 Finger Lakes Region Solo Series. The company had five entrants and brought along a number of spectators for the event. Doyle Chevrolet/Subaru (www.doyle.
subarusdc.com), also a sponsor of the series, brought two cars and had a salesman present. Red Bull was also present with their girls passing out samples. Upcoming events are a Test-n’-Tune May 28 and the second event in the series on Sunday, May 29, at Seneca Army Depot. Ed Jeffries is chairing both of those events. The Sunday, June 19, event returns to RIT. Dave Avery reported that a Street Survival School is scheduled for Saturday, August 20, at Seneca Army Depot. Instructors, workers and up to 30 students are needed. Flyers are available and will be printed in Top End and on the FLR website. Top End The delivery of Top End takes longer due to the changes associated with the move to FedEx Ofﬁce for printing and mailing. To insure that they are delivered before the general membership meeting, the delivery to FedEx will need to be moved up by about ﬁve days. As a result, material for each issue is needed by the 10th of the month. Treasurer’s Report Elizabeth Thiel reported the amount currently in the checking account. Financial details for the checking account, money market account and savings account are available through Elizabeth for review. All bills presented to date have been paid. The bill for the calibration of the sound meter has been paid. Solo trophies, t-shirts, etc. have been paid. A bill for services at the Western New York Test‘n-Tune event may have been sent to Elizabeth by mistake. The club’s insurance and the board’s bond bills have been paid. The treasurer’s report was accepted on a motion by Alan Smith, seconded by Mary Hartman. 5
The meeting was adjourned at 9:05 p.m. on a motion by Mike Brunner, seconded by Alan Smith. Respectfully submitted, Carl F. Dresie, Secretary Bench Racing Both Meridith Croucher and Mike Toombs celebrated birthdays just prior to the meeting. It was noted that birthdays are great, because the more you have, the longer you live. There were several interesting cars at the Solo novice school. An AMB Mercedes, Porsche 911 Turbo and more. The Mercedes, after the instructor commented that he was a little easy on the gas pedal, left black streaks from the start to the start of the braking zone. Connie Peplowski, past National chief of T&S along with other positions in SCCA passed away last week. Connie was the “go to” person for MYLAPS. Meridith Croucher reported that the “Devil in the Dark” 12-hour enduro at New Jersey Motorsports Park on April 30 was a great event. The winner was a late entry and came from the back of the grid to win by eight laps. There were a lot of other things going on. It is a “great and neat” track. Travel time to Millville is about 7 hours. Meridith Croucher reports that STPR will happen. We currently have 27 entries and are hoping for more than 48. The Super Special stages consist of two loops, allowing two cars to be on course at the same time. Volunteer registration is open Thursday and Friday. Rally happenings are on Friday and Saturday, June 3 and 4. More information is available at www.stpr.org. STPR will be the inaugural event in the Ford Festiva program. Mary Hartman reported that she attended a Southern New Jersey region membership meeting with Meg Meyer. They are putting together a video promotion of their events. It should be out soon, and should be checked out. Meg ﬂew out to
the west coast the next morning to do timing and scoring duties for an event. John Walsh reported that he attended a Solo event conducted by the Southern New York region at SUNY Binghamton. There were about 40 entries. The site featured an elevation change of 30 to 40 feet, enough that a Corvette caught some air.
Finger Lakes Region, SCCA Board of Directors Meeting Minutes April 26, 2011 Location: Murph’s Irondequoit Pub, 705 Titus Ave., Irondequoit, NY 14617 Mike Toombs called the meeting to order at 7:39 p.m. Ofﬁcers and directors present: Michael Toombs, Regional Executive; Scott Moller, Assistant Regional Executive; Elizabeth Thiel, Treasurer; Carl Dresie, Secretary; Barbara Lissow, Activities Director; Dave Ciufo, Charles Tanck and Fran McAllister, Directors.

Hamburgers and hot dogs will be available, bring your own drinks, a dish to pass and a folding chair. Easy-ups will be available. A ﬂyer will be prepared for Top End.

A new membership directory has been mailed out. For privacy issues, it will not be available online.
Old Business Because the bulk mail account with the U.S.P.S is no longer used for distributing Top End and other regionrelated mail, the account will be closed. This will save $185 per year and allow us to withdraw the approximate $2,000 in the account. The funds will be moved to the checking account. The network gear for timing and scoring has been received. Spectators, ofﬁcials and teams can view “live” results from the timing system on a wireless laptop at the track. Users will need a laptop computer that runs Microsoft Windows (XP or Vista.) The laptop must have the RMONITOR program installed and a wireless (WiFi) adapter in order to get the program to connect to the scoring system through a standard wireless network. See: http://www.selinsgrovespeedway.com/ images/How_To_use_RMonitor_to_ view_live_timing_and_scoring_from_ AMB.pdf Race Report Glen Double National Race Chris DeMinco presented the budget for the Glen Double National. The preliminary budget was approved on a motion by Barb Lissow, seconded by Elizabeth Thiel. Breakeven is based on 290 entries. The supplemental regulations for the race were sent to the board with the budget, but removed from the e-mail attachment, probably by the software at sending end. They will be sent out and reviewed for changes needed to uniformity, grouping, etc. Race announcer and an announcer in the winner’s circle have to be named. A trophy chair needs to be named.
The Thursday track day will be limited to entrants for the national race. SCCA registration for the weekend will open on Wednesday evening.

National News Toyo R888 Temporarily Added to Spec Miata Eligibility TOPEKA, Kan. (April 27, 2011) – Sports Car Club of America’s Club Racing Board has approved the use of the Toyo Proxes R888 in addition to the Toyo Proxes RA1 for Spec Miata National competition effective immediately. The inclusion of the Proxes R888 is in response to limited quantities of the Proxes RA1 in the United States
following the earthquake in Japan. In addition to the 205/50ZR 15 Toyo Proxes RA1, the 205/50ZR 15 Toyo Proxes R888 will be eligible beginning with races this weekend. While there is currently no end date for eligibility of the Proxes R888, SCCA has reiterated that only one tire will be eligible for use at the 2011 National Championship Runoffs. SCCA stated this in the May 2011 issue of Fastrack®, the ofﬁcial member notiﬁcation newsletter. “Based on discussions with Toyo Tires this week, Proxes RA1 inventory levels are expected to return to normal by the end of June,” SCCA VP of Club Racing Terry Ozment said. “Neither Toyo nor SCCA want the supply issues from Japan to affect an SCCA racer’s ability to race, so we have elected to allow both tires until sufﬁcient levels of the Proxes RA1 are back in the United States. “The CRB has determined that only one tire will be used at the Runoffs, with the Proxes RA1 being the preferred tire. However, if sufﬁcient levels are not available, the Proxes R888 would be the second option. That determination will be made at a later date.” A formal Club Racing Memo was released today allowing both tires for the Spec Miata class until further notice.

SCCA Approves B-Spec Cars for SSC for 2011 TOPEKA, Kan. (April 21, 2011) – Sports Car Club of America’s Club Racing Board has approved the “B-Spec” cars identiﬁed by several automotive manufacturers for inclusion into Showroom Stock C beginning immediately Five models in all will be added to SSC, including the Ford Fiesta 4-door (2010-2011), Honda Fit 4-door (2009-2011), MAZDA2 4-door (2011), Nissan Versa 4- or 5-door (20102011) and Toyota Yaris 2-door (2010-2011). Spec line additions to the class rules are available in the May Fastrack News, posted at SCCA.com. Cars may run shocks and springs from any manufacturer, although future automotive manufacturer contingency programs may require use of that manufacturer’s parts for full contingency compliance. “There has been a considerable amount of interest in the BSpec program, and there was no reason to delay the introduction of these cars to the National program in SSC,” SCCA Club Racing Board member Tom Start said. “These cars will be eligible for full competition, including the 2011 National Championship Runoffs® for qualiﬁed competitors.”

Several cars are under consideration for future inclusion to the B-Spec/SSC program, but will require some assistance to the CRB from the manufacturers, including the Chevrolet Sonic (2012), Fiat 500, Hyundai Accent, KIA Rio and Volkswagen Polo (if imported in 2012). Spearheaded by Honda Performance Development (HPD) and MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development to promote a more affordable solution for late-model production car road racing, the B-Spec concept was introduced at the Performance Racing Industry Show in December 2010. For more information, please see the initial release at http:// www.scca.com/newsarticle.aspx?hub=1&news=4045.
From the May issue of FasTrack® Club Racing Technical Bulletin. SSC B-Spec rules and specs Effective upon publication, add a new subsection 9.1.7.E.34 as follows: “For each of the following cars in SSC, Ford Fiesta 4 door (2010-11), Honda Fit 5 door (2009-2011), Nissan Versa 4-5 door (2010-2011), Mazda2 4 door (2010-2011) and Toyota Yaris 2-4 door (2010-2011), the following apply: Interiors may be removed, including seats, seat brackets, carpet, carpet padding, OEM seat belts, interior trim and headliners. OEM radio and air conditioner may be removed. Heaters and all ductwork must remain, except ductwork that goes under seats. Maximum 2.5 degrees negative chamber on front and rear; MacPherson strut suspension may decamber wheels by the use of eccentric bushings at control arm pivot points, by the use of eccentric bushings at the strut-to-spindle, and/or by use of slotted adjusters at the top of the strut mounting plate. If upper strut slotted plates are used, they shall be located on existing chassis structure, utilizing the OEM bolt holes and may not serve as reinforcement for that structure. On other forms of suspension, camber adjustment may be achieved by the use of shims and/or eccentric bushings. Ride Height: Minimum ride height is ﬁve (5) inches, to be measured without driver at the lowest point of the rocker panels, but not to include welded seams or fasteners. Suspension: Any OEM or aftermarket non-adjustable shock absorber intended for the speciﬁc make, model and year car is permitted. The shock absorber must be installed in the stock mounting location. Remote reservoir shocks are not permitted. Any springs up to a maximum spring rate of 500 pounds may be used. The spring must be installed in the stock location. Threaded shock bodies or adjusters may be used.” More information on car specs is given on pages eight and nine of the May FasTrack®, see: http://www.scca.com/ documents/Fastrack/11/11-fastrack-may.pdf

Experienced teams view a “CAS OVER” and such as transit zones and therefore FREE ZONEs. With no check points expected, they drive to the end of the “non-competitive” zone – attempting to blend in – and get back on time at the end of that zone. Check points in a “non-competitive” area and the requirement that everyone runs at a constant speed defeats the purpose of the speed factors. These situations should be addressed by the Safety Steward for each rally and included in the Safety Steward checklist.”
Alan reported that all the roads are still there and open. He did not see any evidence of gas well drilling that would interfere with the rally. The Special Stage will run as section A and section B with the cars doing a standing start for each section.
The rallymaster instructions need to be updated to address the use of “CAS ALL” sections. They should also include the other issues addressed in the rally pre-check. Pairing new rallyists with experienced rallymasters may not bring all the issues out.

Miscellaneous Discussions It was noted that deﬂections in the body and wings of modern airplanes are noticeable during takeoff. Also, observation suggests that some pilots are either sports car drivers or wannabe drivers.
The reported items discussed during the meeting are grouped by subject and are not in chronological order. Six RoadRally and RallyCross enthusiasts were present. Tom Langdon, Interim Rally Chair, was absent due to a work commitment.
Pause evenly is not the same as pause over. It may still be in bad taste, as is placing a checkpoint straight after a turn. A driver riding in the navigators seat can learn a lot about the other part of the effort. A navigator, who was feeling queasy in the stomach was quoted as saying, “If I’m going to feel this bad, then we are going to do well!” Following the roads as given by a digital map program can lead to traveling down some interesting roads. Rick’s green Mazda was driven to Buffalo after being off the road for two to three years. The white one is off the market.

Susquhannock Trail Performance Rally® June 3 - 4, 2011
Tioga County Fairgrounds, Whitneyville, PA
On the Super Special Grounds ................. 8 a.m. - 4:40 p.m. (approx.)
RallyCross is the most widespread and readily accessible form of extreme dirt motorsport in the Sports Car Club of America, and the perfect place to see if you have what it takes to powerslide your way to victory. Imagine a scaled down version of a rally stage laid out on a non-paved plot of land where the course is delineated by trafﬁc cones instead of trees or rocks. The entry fees and equipment requirements are considerably less than those necessary to enter any other forms of performance rally, so in most locations one need only arrive at event registration with a sound, hardtop vehicle and the entry fee. We’ll have helmets to loan and will assist the ﬁrst-time competitor.
Entry fee includes grandstand admission for the STPR Super Special Stage both Friday and Saturday evenings. Pre-registration required through MotorsportReg.com.
RallyCross is the most cost effective way to gauge a driver’s interest and aptitude for “doing it in the dirt.”
