After lots of discussion with the organizers, we have come up with the following proposed changes for the 2014 season that we believe will make improve the CDC autocross series:
1. Participants may only participate in (and accrue points for) one series per event. This means if a participant chooses to participate in the small bore series at an event the points accrued at that event shall only be applied to their year end points in the small bore series. This is to prevent a single person from winning multiple CDC series (sorry Eric, Franklin, and Dan!). Participants that run a small bore car but do not select the small bore series, will be assumed to be participating in the CDC Index Series. Participants have 5 days after the posting of the event results to make any corrections to series/car/etc. If a series is not selected at registration then that participant will automatically be placed in the regular series.
2. The Subaru BRZ and Scion FRS shall be added to the list of Small Bore eligible cars. CDC intends to expand the list of eligible cars in the Small Bore Series. Anyone who wishes to have their car added to small bore may petition to have it added by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Tire indexes shall change as follows… 1.0 for tires with a treadwear rating of 200 and above, 1.01 for tires with a treadwear rating from 100 to 199 (inclusive), and 1.02 for tires with a treadwear rating less than 100. This change will make those with r-compound tires more competitive.
Before we finalize the changes, we want to put it out in the general forum for comments and discussion. So feel free to respond with your ideas at the CDC autocross forum http://www.capitaldrivingclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2313. We do ask that all the comments remain constructive and not to bash anyone. All inappropriate comments will be deleted.
