After a couple of weeks working on this task, the committee (Rod Davison, Larry Bell, Felim Power, Alan McColl and me) have what we believe is a good proposal for awards and points system changes ready for review by the membership. The executive has sent out an email blast with a link to it but you can download it here. We'd be interested in hearing any questions and comments from the membership prior to the AGM meeting, where the proposal will be discussed.

In a nutshell, the proposal recommends keeping just the Open and Closed Wheel group championship in place, dropping the Sports Racer group championship, and adding an SCCBC-focused class championship. Only classes with greater than 2.4 average cars per year are eligible for a class championship award but, because of the handicap system for small classes built into our proposed class points system, everyone competes for the year-end group championship.

How do you propose to reconcile the class differences between CACC and ICSCC?  Some classes exist in both rule sets (FF, FV, GT, PRO3, SM) and some don't (IP, Production).

I don't think the SCCBC should be awarding class championships, especially when you consider many of the winners will be the same competitors who win the CACC class championships.

We did draft a table to merge the classes and came up with only one class that defied reclassification. The reality is that this mapping process occurs now as points are accumulated for both CACC and ICSCC races towards the club group championships. It can be done and the proposal does say it will be done on a best efforts basis.

We understand there is some overlap with CACC awards but SCCBC is a more complete representation of the season's competition, and, consequently, can and will produce some different class champions from the CACC. We also strongly felt there could be more recognition for drivers, particularly the club class champions, at the SCCBC banquet. The banquet is a big event and it's a bit anti-climatic for all the drivers that worked hard to win their club class.  The consensus was that they deserved the recognition in front of their peers from the club, and the banquet is the best venue for that. I'm sure we'd sell more banquet tickets, too.

Thanks for your feedback, David.
