“Crew Chief” By Linda Santangelo-Mosley

On March 1, 2024 I was pleased and honored to step in to the position of NNJR RE. Peter Schneider made a decision to step down as RE and continue with his many other responsibilities as Area 1 Director, Rally Chair and Editor of the NNJR newsletter. On behalf of the NNJR Board and our members, I would like to express our appreciation for Peter’s contributions and hard work during his terms as RE. We wish him continued success and thank him for his friendship.

For members who I have not had the pleasure to know in our NNJR Region, let me introduce myself. I have been a Trustee on the NNJR Board for more than 15 years and I’m a 27 year member of the SCCA. I have planned all the social events for the NNJR Region and I have Co-Chaired the NorthEast Division’s Convention in Scranton, PA for the last three years. This past year I joined the SCCA Foundation as a member of the Web and Communication Committee as the Foundation launches The Legacy Project. For the past 11 years I have assisted Chris Mosley in the NEDiv Road Racing Series traveling throughout the northeast. I’m excited to carry on the RE tradition and look forward to sharing updates with you every month in my column

Second Hand Roads – TSD RoadRally

Date: Sunday, April 28, 2024 Time: 10:30am – 4:00pm

Start Location: Subaru World of Hackettstown        364 Rte 46 W, Hackettstown, NJ 07840Price: $40/$30 per vehicle*
This is a 75 mile straight forward Tour Rally with easy-to-follow instructions. The event will start at Subaru World of Hackettstown and end in Long Valley, NJ. The rally is designed so that newcomers to the sport can easily complete the course with all turn instructions supported with official mileage and associated Car Zero ‘Key Times’.
Participants will check-in at Subaru World of Hackettstown 10:00 and 10:45 to receive their route Instructions which will include turn-by-turn directions, before setting out in their personal vehicles to drive the route. The rally will conclude at approximately 3:30 p.m.
This is a “Tour” type rally and there are no traps or tricks – just drive, enjoy the great roads and marvelous scenery and try to arrive at each checkpoint at precisely the right time. Checkpoints will be set up along the way to monitor how well you are following the assigned average speeds. Awards will be presented to the teams who do the best job of arriving at the checkpoints at the proper times. This is a rally designed especially for people with little or no rally experience. For those wishing to compete for SCCA National RoadRally Series points a Divisional event will be offered, for those looking to enjoy an afternoon of friendly competition the Regional event is for you.
The Richta GPS checkpoint system is free to use and will record your arrival time at each checkpoint. You’ll keep this app open while you run the rally and it will use the GPS signal from your device to record your arrival time at each checkpoint. Once you pass a checkpoint, the app will automatically calculate your score for that checkpoint and announce it to you! No more waiting for the end of the rally to see how you did. You’ll see your score at each checkpoint as you go along. General Instructions and details about the Richta Smartphone App will be emailed to all registered contestants 1 week prior to the event. 

Registration is open Now! Registration Link

Special Bylaws Vote

The Sports Car Club of America® will conduct a special Bylaws vote from Feb. 13-March 14, 2024, with all current members of the SCCA encouraged to vote. The proposed Bylaws change would strengthen term limits on members of the Club who are elected to the National SCCA Board of Directors.

Currently, a member in good standing can hold a Director position for two consecutive elected terms before having to step down. However, after being off the Board for a term, the Bylaws allow that same person to then run for election to the SCCA Board of Directors again at a later date.

The Bylaws proposal would limit members’ eligibility to serving a maximum of two elected terms total.

RE Update by Peter Schneider

What’s Next?

As the calendar marks the year’s halfway point, the Region, surprisingly, finds itself in a lull. The second quarter was very active: hosting Solo events, including the ProSolo at the Meadowlands and events with the Northeast PA Region at Pocono in conjunction with SCCA-NNJR’s Joe DeLuca and Linda Gronlund Freedom Major RoadRace and two RoadRally events, a TSD rally and a Trek in association with the Highland Coalition.

Now that we enter the third quarter, things are slowing down until competitive activities start in late summer and early fall. But that does not mean the club has to be idle.

Managing the Region is a year-round activity. (read more)
