LeChump

Click here for LeChump Regional Classes Rules and Specifications

 

The purpose of these LeChump rules is to create an opportunity for cars built for ChumpCar World Series (ChumpCar) or the 24 Hours of LeMons (LeMons) to compete safely in SCCA regional races. They are intended to provide low-pressure classes without the necessity of extensive modifications to existing cars. Multiple classes are provided to foster competition, however, there is no guarantee that any specific make, model or car will be competitive.

All drivers must fully conform to SCCA driver licensing requirements. Prior LeChump racing experience may be considered for SCCA licensing but automatic license exchange is not guaranteed or contemplated. Each situation is considered on its individual merits. All driver safety gear must comply with the GCR requirements.

Competition Report

There are several Important Changes in 2014

Executive Steward - Earl Hurlbut will step down as Executive Steward and will be replaced by Kathy Barnes. Thanks Earl for all the help making Pocono a success in 2013. All the best to Kathy.

Types of Races - In 2014 there will no longer be National Races. Races will either be Majors or
Regional’s. There will be 3 Majors Races in the Northeast; they will be a NJMS, Watkins Glen
and Summit Point. All of the other races will be Regional’s.

Qualifying for the Runoffs - The SCCA National Runoffs will be held October 6-12 at Mazda
Speedway, Laguna Seca, Salinas, California. Drivers can qualify for the Runoffs in two separate ways:

1. The Majors- drivers can enter the Major events and accumulate points, remember we are
in the Eastern Conference and in addition to the 3 NeDiv Majors there are also Major races
in the South East Division, beginning with Sebring in 2014.

2. The Divisional Racing Championship- 8 Regional races will be part of a Divisional Racing
Championship. They will be held at the tracks that hosted National Races in 2014. The

Competition Licenses - As of January 1, 2014, SCCA will no longer Issue National or Regional
Competition licenses. The new license will be called a Full Competition License. The renewal
criteria for this license will be completion of 2 races in the previous year. Your current National
or Regional license will be accepted as a Full Competition License until it is renewed.

Driver’s Schools - The main change is that it will only be necessary to attend one Driver School
to be able to race. The requirement will be 3 hours on track time that is a change from 6 hours.
The primary question will be “Is the student ready to race?”

2014 - NNJR Region Party!

Come out and join your fellow NNJR members and guests to throw off the chill of winter. Great food and drink provided. Intriguing conversation. Thrilling race, rally and solo adventures.

Wise words from Dave Panas

By the time you read this, the first biggie of the year, the Rolex 24 at Daytona will be in the books.  This was of course, the first race run by the combined Grand-Am and ALMS series.  I thought that you might be interested in how these groups came to be, because it does go back quite a way in time - even if it doesn’t have a lot to do with NNJR.
