Scion Racing 2009 Year in Review
The 2009 Scion Racing recap video takes you through all of Scion's assets including Ken Gushi and his Scion Racing tC and Tanner Foust with his Rockstar Energy Drink Scion tC. Watch them along with some other Scion Racing teammates tackle the 2009 season.
I am posting this as a car I help crew on, the Jackson Dawson Racing Scion is in this video. This year it has competed in NASA PTC/TTC events, WERC endurance racing, and SCCA World Challenge TC2 class. We just ran 6 hours of the 25 hours of Thunderhill with Dan Gardner and Jeff Lepper sharing the drivers seat. The car took its 4th E1 class win out of 5 races this year,winning the WERC E1 championship. The team also took the PTC championship for the second year in a row. The same car won the SCCA TC2 event at Laguna Seca with Scott Webb driving.
Next year World Challenge is revising their Touring car rules, and brining them inline with what they have as TC2 rules. This should help lower the costs associated with Touring car and help to bolster the fields.
SCCA Pro Racing and WC Vision have announced competition classifications for the 2010 SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge Championships. The series will take a firm stance on cost control in 2010, with the Touring Car class adopting TC2 rules and the GT class using a new baseline of performance. Additionally, a new Grand Touring Sport class has been added.
Committed to reduced costs and an increase in actual racing for 2010, SCCA Pro Racing and WC Vision have announced that the Touring Car and Touring Car 2 categories will merge, with performance standards set to TC2 levels. The class will maintain the Touring Car name and share the same point system and purse structure amounts as the GT and GTS classes.
