Subject: Weight Survey
From: Rick Parent, Technical Director
SVRA is sending out the email below to all SVRA licensed members; if you have not received this email please feel free to email me your response to this Tech Bulletin.
Traditionally, all SVRA car weights have come from the SCCA GCR’s from 1967 and 1972. SVRA had reduced the minimum weight by 50lbs for the removal of the spare tire (where applicable). This process has been in place for more than 20 years. Some of the SVRA official car weights have not been accurate; weights that were changed last year reflected this.
SVRA is considering changing from its current car weight format to the original SCCA GCR minimum weight plus a driver’s weight. SVRA reserves the right to make competition adjustments to any car weight. SVRA would like to give you the opportunity to voice your thoughts on whether the SVRA minimum car weights should include driver weight or keep the current weight format.
Please reply to the following three questions by December 25 to have your opinion considered. (No comments please, there will be no return response from this survey.)
1. What race group(s) do you race in?
2. Should the minimum car weight include a driver weight? (yes or no)
3. If you answered yes to question #2, how much weight should be added for the driver?
(150lbs, 175lbs, or 200lbs)
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.
Happy Holidays and Best Regards, Rick
