Two SCCA Majors races this weekend on opposite sides of the country are attracting Mazda racers as they pursue a Conference championship and an invite to the SCCA National Championship Runoffs. The fourth Majors event in the Southeastern Conference will be hosted by Atlanta Region SCCA at Road Atlanta, and the second in the Western Conference will be hosted by Cal Club Region at the high desert racetrack of Willow Springs International Raceway.
March Atlanta Majors
As with most events in the Southeast, the March Atlanta U.S. Majors Tour at Road Atlanta is attracting a big contingent of Spec Miatas. While some of the Florida racers, many of who already have three Majors weekends in the books, aren’t towing up to the scenic Georgia track, it’s still bringing in a stellar field, including 2015 National Champion Jonathan Goring; Danny Steyn, fresh off winning his first SM race as a 60-year-old at NOLA two weeks prior; Michael Carter; and Blake Clements.
