PCRRC Run Group Generation Philosophy:

Anticipating entries from a wide range of Sanctioning Bodies, combining cars into Run Groups is/was a challenge. Had to start somewhere, so here's what we did:

• Took Race Lap times for as many Sanctioning Body car classes as found around a common Race Track… Willow Springs.
• From a spread sheet, sorted all the data based on that "in-the race" lap time.
• Divided results into manageable groups (Run Groups)
• Also attempted to put "like" cars in the same Run/Trophy Group (i.e a NASA Spec Miata and an SCCA Spec Miata, VARA FV and SCCA FV, etc.)
• This was the basis for the "RUN GROUPS"

With the Run Groups defined, now we had to determine who would get a trophy. Again, based on lap times and "like" cars, TROPHY Groups were created within the defined RUN GROUP. Obviously we could not award trophies in every Class entered in a Run Group, as (hopefully) there will be quite a variety with the various Sanctioning Bodies Class designations within the lap-time determined Run Group.

So that's how it was done, based on the information we had way out in front of the event.

NOTE #1 – flexibility is the key to success here… It is likely that we may have missed a class, or may get an entry from a Sanctioning Body we may have no data from. We will work with the entrant and find the "right" Run Group and Trophy Group to classify the car.

NOTE #2 – more flexibility needed here… Run Groups were made based on lap times, not necessarily on "expected number of entrants". There is a good possibility as we start getting formal entries, that one of the Run Groups (or even Trophy groups) may be oversubscribed (or conversely – undersubscribed). Based on the numbers, we are empowering ourselves to combine and/or break up larger Run Groups. At this point, not knowing how many to expect, we have done our best, but realize "real numbers" may necessitate a change.

Each competitor will receive a “Tech Sheet” at the Cal Club office during the registration process or they can print the “Tech Sheet” from the Cal Club website.  The “Tech Sheet” is to be completed, signed.  If the car does not have a current valid Annual Tech the car is to be taken to Tech with the completed Tech Sheet.  If the car has an Annual Inspection noted in a log book or by other means, such as an Annual sticker, the Tech Sheet will be signed off by Registration and a Tech Sticker will be issued.

If there is no valid Annual Inspection the Tech Inspector will go over the “Tech Sheet” with the competitor and may ask for clarifications or physically inspect particular areas of concern.  When the inspection is satisfied the competitor will receive a Tech Sticker.  No car will be allowed on the course for any session without a signed Tech Sticker.  All “Tech Sheets” will remain in Tech.

If there are concerns with individual cars after practice or qualifying they will be directed to report to Tech for consultation.  After each Championship race all cars will come into Champion’s Row for trophy presentations and photos.

Any entered driver may lodge a protest against another driver disputing the mechanical compliance of their competition vehicle. To lodge a protest, the protestor must present the official rule(s) from the declared affiliated organization that they feel has been violated to the Chief Steward. Note: the Chief Steward may ask for the specific issue "in writing". The Chief Steward will inform the Chief of Tech of the issues and ask the Chief of Tech, if deemed appropriate, to inspect the car relative to the rule or rules and make a determination. The Chief Steward may accept the mechanical protest, may extend the time allowed, or may reject the protest.

Download our Tech Sheet to be completed and signed by the driver, presented to Tech with the car and log book if available.
