<p>There’s no member spotlight this month; partly because of low participation and lack of time on my part. But mostly because we lost a fellow (local) racing fanatic a few days ago after a seven-year battle with cancer, and I felt the space was better served paying tribute to him.

About Us

Susquehanna Region of SCCA is the number one automotive event club in south central PA. We are a group of car and racing enthusiasts, who have a passion for taking our cars on the road and the racetrack. While our primary activities are autocross and rallycross — where members can drive their cars at 10/10ths in safe environments — some members also road race, rally, kart, build cars and more. We have members in all areas of the Susquehanna Valley join us for events, and often have participants from other regions including Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. Whether you’re an avid car enthusiast, someone who likes driving or just looking to hone your skills behind the wheel, we would love to see YOU bring your car to an autocross and drive it like it was made to be driven! Susquehanna Region SCCA is lucky to have a novice autocross program led by experienced chiefs, and instructors at-the-ready to help you navigate the course.

If you’ve come through autocross registration this year — or joined us at a regional meeting — you’ve probably already met me. I knew I wanted to race when my dad bought a 1967 Porsche 911 and started racing about 15 years ago. I always enjoyed going to the races with him, especially when I could take a ride along on the track. I started autocrossing in 2014, and this year I finally got my chance to race the Porsche with my dad. Nothing beats 150mph down the front straight into turn one… and I do mean nothing.

Autocross

Autocross is an inexpensive, timed motorsport competition where drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course in low-hazard environment like a large parking lot or air strip. It can be a fun weekend activity, a chance to test and tune your driving skills (and car), or used as an entry-level motorsport as a stepping stone if you're looking to move into other more competitive (and expensive) forms of racing. While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered in legal highway driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback creates an adrenaline-pumping experience!

Rallycross

RallyCross is often considered "autocross on dirt." Just imagine a scaled-down (safer) version of a rally stage on an unpaved plot of land. Luckily, the course is laid out with traffic cones instead of trees or rocks reducing hazards that could cause damage. Just like autocross, the emphasis is on your skills as a driver and car handling rather than strictly speed. Whether you're looking for a cost effective way to gauge your interest for "doing it in the dirt," or you just want some exciting seat time, rallycross is for you!
