SUE ROBINSON NAMED HEAD OF
PERFORMANCE RALLY

TOPEKA, Kan. (Dec. 2, 2003) ? The Sports Car Club of America, Inc. announced today that Sue Robinson has been named Manager of Performance Rally and will assume many of the primary responsibilities formally held by the Director position.

Prior to joining the SCCA staff in November 2002, Robinson served as Director of the California Rally Series from 1999 to 2002. Overall, she has been involved in various roles in rally (competitor, organizer, stage worker and instructor) since her first SCCA event in 1982 at the Reno International Rally.

?Sue Robinson is what the Performance Rally Program needs as it moves into the future,? said Steve Johnson, SCCA President and CEO. ?Sue brings experience, a great attitude, overall leadership and the understanding of what our members need from our rally program.?

Robinson said that the Performance Rally community showed great resolve as the season unfolded in 2003.

?This year was a year of huge challenges,? said Robinson. ?The rally organizers and competitors have risen to these challenges far beyond what was asked of them. I am excited to head the program as we implement new standards of excellence in event operation and safety.?

Robinson also mentioned some of the ways she would like to see her new program move forward.

?I believe we need to build a strong base in our ClubRally program to see the entire Performance Rally program flourish,? said Robinson. ?If we make all of our events ? RallyCross, ClubRally and ProRally ? the most organized, the best executed and at the same time present fair and safe driving challenges, everybody wins; the organizers, the competitors and the SCCA.?

Robinson takes on many of the responsibilities formally held by Kurt Spitzner, who announced his resignation soon after the completion of the 2003 SCCA ProRally Championship.

That's all I need to hear. Good Luck, and Congradulations.

this sounds good.

I am laughing, though, about the last line in the press release.

Is there a way to say the spin machine is still clearly turned on, without detracting from the announcement of a "Good Thing"?

No Director at all?

What a positive choice to make. Welcome aboard, Sue!

Does this mean that the Director position disappears? Wait, I'll ask... oops, voice mail. We'll see...

On the Road Racing side I remember there was a shift from Director to Manager, I think when Fred Slick was "nicked" out of his position several years ago.

My guess is that Garrett will continue cultivating sponsors while Sue will work to revitalize the club side of things. It's a balancing act, but as someone who has seen all facets of our sport first hand, I know she'll do an outstanding job.

This is what I had hoped for and is a very welcome step. It is now up to the rest of us to work with her. We should maintain and build this positive momentum.
