Posted by duck, July 2, 2013

August 3, 2013 to August 4, 2013

With one hillclimb fresh in the books, we move on to installment number 5!  Chasing the Dragon IV saw 72 entrants and a plethora of amazing cars including a WRC pedigreed Lancia Delta Integrale HF, a Can-Am spec McLaren M1B, a 1963 Jaguar XKE, Heikki Rinta-Koski’s insane turbocharged Locost 7, John Finger’s hillclimb special, and a handful of well prepped Lancer Evos screaming up the hill.  After an intense day 2 battle with Jeremy Dietzel’s Evo 8, Heikki once again lifted the sword as King of the Hill.

For Immediate Release

SCCA National Convention to Coincide with New North American MotorSports Expo in 2014

TOPEKA, Kan. (July 2, 2013) – Sports Car Club of America, Inc. (SCCA®) and National Trade Productions, Inc. (NTP) have announced a new, unique event: MSX, the North American MotorSports Expo™, launching March 7-9, 2014 at the Charlotte Convention Center, in Charlotte, N.C.

SCCA has partnered with NTP to create a conference and expo expanding the annual SCCA National Convention and Hall of Fame Induction. Targeted toward SCCA’s 60,000 membership base, national car clubs and associations, as well as enthusiasts from around the country, MSX will provide educational programs and seminars for current and potential participants in SCCA competition and an exhibit hall devoted to racing parts, equipment, safety and technology.

“We frequently hear that our members would like more content geared toward building, maintaining and driving competition cars at our National Convention,” SCCA President & CEO Jeff Dahnert said. “Likewise, there has never been a show to specifically cater to the programs that SCCA offers—road racing, autocross and rally. Our partnership with NTP gives us the opportunity to provide that for our current and potential members.”

Located in Charlotte to provide easy access to the largest concentration of SCCA members and motorsport enthusiasts in the country, MSX will provide product and performance solutions for those that buy and drive in all forms of SCCA competition.

“Charlotte’s longstanding history and culture within the motorsports industry makes it the perfect location to stage an event for the best amateur racing organization in America,” NTP Chairman and CEO Robert E. Harar said. “In addition to the MSX and SCCA Convention activities, the SCCA Hall of Fame Induction is a special event that makes the entire weekend a can’t miss event for motorsports enthusiasts.”

MSX will feature world-class exhibitors, racing legends, technical seminars, show floor demonstrations, banquets, special events and more. Complete details and website will be released in the coming weeks. For more information about MSX, the North American MotorSports Expo, please contact msxinfo@ntpshow.com or call (703) 706-8227.

SCCA National Convention schedule and registration will be available by September 3, 2013.

Eagle’s Nest Hillclimb

Posted by rich.little, July 7, 2011

We concluded negotiations with Eagle’s Nest on June 21. Unfortunately, the financial situation there requires them to rent out the meadow and road at a price higher than CCR, as a nonprofit and with limited sponsorship, can afford. We have officially pulled this event from the SEDIV TT schedule for 2011. We are leaving Eagle’s Nest with a good relationship and we hope we can return one day.

While this event has been cancelled, CCR is still planning to run a points paying hillclimb event before the end of the year.

Stay tuned! Thanks for your support… as drivers and event staff and courseworkers… all of us working together is making this sport grow. Great job!

Ted Theodore - CCR Board of Directors
