2015 SEDIV Mid-Year Meeting  

SEDIV Time Trials Committee Report

 

The 2015 TT Championship Program has started off thru 3 events with 114 drivers competing in 29 classes.  Overall in 2015, TT entries are up 5% from 2014.

TGPR entries were higher (8%) than 2014.  The CCR Memorial Day TT/PDX at CMP following the SARRC weekend increased entries 40%.  Dragon moved back to June but saw 14% lower entries.  The May Road Atlanta TT was a casualty of their May race loss.  Our TT website, www.sedivtt.com, provides a wealth of information about our TT program.

 

In August, we will repeat the TT at Barber Motorsports Park in conjunction with a Double SECS/SARRC.  For the first time in an SEDIV TT, we will have open passing with a Point-by.  Chasing the Dragon will return on September 12-13 and TGPR on October 10-11 <THIS IS A DATE CHANGE>.  The November 14-15 Roebling Road TT will be a dual race/points event and serve as the SEDIV TT Championship Series Runoff like the SIC.

 

Overall, PDX entries are running slightly below 2014.  For the first time, the CFR May PDX at Daytona used the long course with banking on the test day preceding the SECS.  Entries were limited and restricted to Advanced drivers who all drove in a safe and courteous manner.  The success of this demonstration PDX may lead to more PDXs held at Daytona in 2016.  CFR has a PDX on the Sebring short course in conjunction with their scheduled races in June and July.  The Labor Day one day PDX will be available only to Advanced and Intermediate classed drivers and will use the 12 Hour Sebring “Long Course”.  CFR believes that PDXs are a strong part of SCCA’s participation growth and is doing all it can to encourage that growth in Florida and SEDiv.

For 2014, the TTAC moved from Club Racing to Experiential Programs.  TTAC has proposed a reorganization to the Director Experiential Programs.  The current TTAC will become the Divisional Time Trial Committee which will be focused on tactical operations, rules, licenses, etc. which is mostly what they do now.  Added to that will be a small National TT Committee whose focus is on the strategic view of growing the TT program nationally.  The SEDIV TT Committee will not be affected.  SEDIV should see no change to their TT Program.
