This is an EXTRA weekend where we have a Test and Tune or School on Saturday (your choice!) and a Regional Points event on Sunday to put all that you have learned to the test! We will have a short course set up on Saturday along with a couple other small areas that will be available to practice specific driving maneuvers. We will also be have a class to go over things for novices like classing your car, what to expect at tech inspection, and a basic rundown of rallycross. We hope to provide the ability for all experience levels of drivers to get time to practice and learn at the Saturday event.

Social Distancing at NRSCCA Activities
June 12, 2020
Welcome back to Motorsports competition with the Nebraska Region, Sports Car Club of America. I am Steve Ducharme, your Regional Executive, working with the Solo Team (Chris, Tony, and Trent), RallyCross Chair (Kevin Schatz) and other club leaders.
The purpose of this message is to inform you of measures that your leadership is taking to keep our activities safe in the during the COVID-19 pandemic. I am sure that you are all well aware of the purpose of Social Distancing – to minimize the opportunities for transmission of the coronavirus. Remember, that some of our members are among those most vulnerable to the coronavirus, and many more of us have family or friends who we want to keep safe by staying healthy.
The measures that we are taking follow the guidance of the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC, www.cdc.gov) and the requirements stipulated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Department of Health. Here is what we are doing to facilitate social distancing and keep all of our members safe and health. The attached flyer from the CDC summarizes their recommendations. You will find this flyer and other helpful information at cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/preventgetting-sick/index.html.
SOCIAL DISTANCING: There is plenty of room at our event sites to maintain social distancing of at least six feet between individuals preferably further when possible. We recommend that you do this in order to protect yourself and others. Please your distance while in paddock, in grid, or waiting for the portable toilets. Some ares will be marked with boxes 6 feet apart to guide you. Another good guide is the concrete slabs; most are twenty-five feet wide.
FACE COVERINGS: We recommend that you wear recommended face coverings whenever you are around others. We asks that you bring your own masks. Bandanas and scarves will work well, especially of folded into three layers. We will, however, have a limited supply of disposable masks available for a small cost.
HAND WASHING & HAND SANITIZER: We will have supplies of hand sanitizer and a hand washing station available for you to use. Use these before and after using the portable toilets and also before and after touching surfaces that others may touch. Nitrile gloves can help in this regard, but only if they are kept clean.
FOOD & DRINK: Please bring your own and carefully discard the empties and packaging. We will stack bottled water that you are welcome to consume on site. Please do not leave water bottles or other items laying around for others to pick up.
PADDOCK & GRID: Paddock your vehicles at least 25 feet apart, the width of one of the large concrete squares. Use more space if you need it for your tow vehicle and trailer as well. This way, you can work around your vehicles while maintaining distance. We will grid cars further apart for the same reason.
VEHICLE TECH INSPECTION: Bring your vehicle to tech and follow the instructions of the inspection team. Wait for instructions.
COMMUNICATIONS: Our primary means of communication with you will be by the Public address system and the live timing web page (live.nrscca.com). Keep your distance from the trailer, course and grid workers, and others operating the event. If you have a question about timing or the status of your runs, please speak to a grid worker, from a safe distance, of course.
WORK ASSIGNMENTS: As is our practice, all participants are also event workers who keep the event moving ahead smoothly. This may mean handling shared equipment or touching cones or other surfaces that others have touched. Therefore, we ask you to put on a fresh pair of nitrile gloves (provided) at the beginning of your work assignment, before picking up radios, flags, cones, etc. Radios and Flags should be brought back to the trailer so that they can be sanitized between work sessions.
The Mission of the SCCA is to fuel a safe, fun and exciting motorsports experience for auto enthusiasts. Our Vision is to be the preferred motorsports community in the U.S., built on fun, shared passion and access to an exhilarating motorsports experience.
Keep Safe; Stay Healthy; Have Fun.
