Does anybody else think it's interesting that the SCCA is sanctioning the Pikes Peak Hillclimb for motorcycles, big rigs, open wheelers and other "unique" car classes, at the same time that closed course c1 rally sprints are suspended for safety reasons?

The insurance guys in Topeka must have a real strange sense of humor.
I can't wait to see the PRB's safety assessment of Pikes Peak.

Funny, reading their rules etc, etc the only place SCCA ibs mentioned is when the 'ProRALLY' class is mentioned as well as being an FIA event that requires an FIA license.
I could be wrong as USAC isn't mentioned anymore either.

The PP website does not get updated very often, I would not rely on it for up to date information.

When I sent in the entry in December USAC was mentioned on the entry papaerwork. In January the SCCA took over sanction of the entire event. PPIHC are still organizing and running the event, the SCCA is just providing sanction (at $200/car).

When the SCCA took over the requirement for FIA drivers and entrants licenses went away and a Pro-Rally license was acceptable (I confirmed this with Sue), saving a potential $450/car.

The only SCCA person listed as a race official is our benevolent dictator, Mr S, who has the title of "Director, SCCA Pro Rally division (and all 7 cars entered in that division as off 5/18). The steward, director, safety, tech, scoring, media and so on are all PPIHC people.

I'm sure Mr. S will not be the only yellow shirt in attendance, others will be there as there are parties to attend and ego's to stoke, it's a crappy job but someone has to do it.

Edit - Insurance is $125/car and paid as part of the entry fee, PPIHC breaks down the entry fee to show you what you are paying for. This covers the at speed practice run and race day.

SCCA did sanction Pike's Peak for a number of years. The insurance people did have fits. Then the event was sent to USAC. Now it's time to learn all over again.
