SCCA Sets Sonoma Runoffs Qualification Criteria

The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) has revealed the qualification criteria for drivers seeking to take part in the SCCA National Championship Runoffs, taking place next year at Sonoma Raceway on Oct. 16-21.

The process by which racers receive invites to compete at the upcoming Runoffs remains relatively unchanged. Three distinct paths again exist for racers to gain eligibility. For those involved in Hoosier Super Tour or U.S. Majors Tour Conference events, drivers must first participate in a minimum of three separate weekends, in any Conference, and have a minimum of three individual race starts, all in the same class.

A Divisional Championship path to a Runoffs invite also remains an option. Here, a competitor must first participate in the same class for a minimum of four weekends within a single Divisional Championship. Then, racers must finish in the top three positions within a class point standings, except for Spec Miata and Spec Racer Ford Gen3 where the top five will be invited to the Runoffs.

In addition to the top three (top five in SRF3/SM) Divisional Championship point earners, drivers in the top 50 percent of the NorPac and SoPac Divisions in 2018 will be eligible for Runoffs invitations dictated by available space.

If a Divisional Championship is not concluded at the time of the Runoffs, invitations will be extended to competitors meeting the requirements three weeks prior to the start of the Runoffs, thus allowing Divisions to run programs year-round.

As usual, defending Runoffs winners also get an invite.
