Mike Kondrat and Si Allen, with the help of Dennis Douville, lead a working session to improve
The most important area that needed to be reviewed was SCoNE’s process for setting it’s feature lineups. The group worked out a draft of the proposed changes after a discussion of how prior feature winners would be lined up and also how “rookie” status is determined. When the changes are finalized, the updated rules will be published on the SCoNE website.
Other topics discussed were the enforcement of red flag activities by crews, the possibility of improving the race scoring by using transducers, and the introduction of a change in the tire rules. The main purpose of moving to a spec tire would be the possibility of the tire manufacturer donating to a year-end points fund and reducing tire costs slightly. More investigation was deemed necessary and more information will be forthcoming.
A draft schedule was presented with 13 dates for the 2014 season starting on May 11, 2014. A possible addition to the schedule is a date at Saratoga Speedway in Malta, NY. While details are still being negotiated, 18 competitors have committed to the Saratoga event. As soon as the schedule is finalized, it will be posted on the SCoNE website.
We are looking forward to a great 2014 season. "Come race with us!"
