TOPEKA, Kan. (October 18, 2013) – The SCCA today announced a program for U.S. Majors Tour Series registration that provides drivers with a number of benefits, including a reserved number, for the 2014 season.
Opening Monday, October 21, the Series registration includes a reserved number within the Conference of the driver’s choosing, assigned by Conference and race group. Drivers also receive access to a special registration line for express registration and tech at select events and a $25 gift certificate for Majors merchandise.
Registered drivers will also receive a special U.S. Majors Tour branded hard card providing the unique express access and commemorating the season as well as Series decals prior to events.
Those registering by December 1, 2013 will have their name entered into a drawing for a set of BFGoodrich Tires for either street or track use. One winner will be drawn early in 2014.
Series registration is available for a $50 fee. A $100 option allows a driver to register a single three-digit number, beginning with 1, reserved in all Conferences for 2014, including the Runoffs®. Beginning November 15, single and two-digit numbers can be reserved, as available, in additional Conferences for $25 per Conference. Series registration is not required to participate in U.S. Majors Tour events.
“With the introduction of Series registration for the U.S. Majors Tour events, we hope to allow drivers to prepare number graphics for their cars that will be good for the season in their Conference,” Terry Ozment, SCCA Vice President, Club Racing said. “With this, we can offer a number of other benefits for a limited fee and make the Majors experience even more enjoyable throughout the year.”
Numbers will be reserved based on standard run groups, following the preferred seven run group format. Reserved numbers will be held for drivers up until three weeks prior to each individual event, at which point any driver can register for the event with any available number. Series registration requests for reserved numbers will be honored in a first come, first served basis beginning at the opening of registration. Any driver who runs two Majors events in 2014 will earn first right of refusal for the same number in 2015.
Reserved does not necessarily mean permanent. If class run groups for an event are different than the traditional seven run groups, conflicts will be resolved by the in-conference driver who registered for the event first.
During the registration process, drivers will also be able to order a U.S. Majors Tour pit board, like those awarded to race winners, for an additional fee. A hard stock board that includes driver’s name and sponsors will cost $50, with a vinyl version available for $40.
