For certain members of the Sports Car Club of America, the club is about more than the competition. Without these intense enthusiasts, SCCA events would cease to exist. These people not only compete, but they also set up courses, run timing and scoring, handle the needs of registration, or complete one of a million essential tasks.
One such person is SCCA Cal Club Region member Anthony Porta, and SportsCar magazine (SCCA’s official member magazine and sister publication to RACER.com) takes a look at what and why Porta does what he does. His story is one of inspiration, as he thrives to improve not only his national championship-level driving, but also the club and the events his region hosts.
The April issue, which is landing in the mailboxes of SCCA members right now, includes a slew of other features including coverage from the 2018 SCCA National Convention, bolt-turning action from SportsCar magazine’s latest autocross project car build, and data analysis tips. Also inside, SportsCar‘s editors chat with four SCCA Solo National Champions, discovering their secrets to speed.
Beyond the features, the issue brings readers details about the newly announced 2019 SCCA National Championship Runoffs, along with Solo contingency payout information and the creation of the Time Trials Nationals, an event set to take place in September of this year.
Members of the SCCA receive SportsCar magazine each month as a benefit of SCCA membership. The issue is available in both physical paper form and online through the member login at www.scca.com. Join the SCCA now and read the digital version of the April 2018 issue of SportsCar tonight.
