Default Silver State Classic Challenge

Anybody been to this course? The Silver State Classic Challenge runs
twice a year. A week of timed events. I am thinking about going and
applying for the 150 mph class. For me it is a long trip. But I have
talked to a few friends that are interested.

@roadpilot

Iíve been. Iíve also been to the Big Bend Open Road Race several times. I like BBORR way more than SSCC. The latter isnít known for having stringent safety rules. BBORR does for the higher speed classes. Iíve also been to the Sandhills Open Road Challenge.

I would recommend you find an experienced navigator if itís the first time driving any of them. I wouldnít recommend the 150 class for your first time.

Silver State now requres that I that I take a i/2 day course in Vegas and required to start in the 120 mph class to start. Even though I have hi speed
credentials. They start everybody this way. Then you go up in speed as
each race you enter.
To go to these Nevada races costs a lot of time and money. Even though
I have the car prepared. Time is the real problem ,I live in Florida.

In 2014 to 2018 i dragged a trailer thru out the southeast going to
different autocross's every week end. It can start ot get old afer a while.
Some of the courses were long and being in a Blower class , sometimes
I would get over 150 mph.
What are you course's like long /short? I have run SCCA courses and they
have alot of turns and short straight sections.
