NJ Pro-Solo Hosted by SCCA-NNJR
'22 New Jersey ProSolo Fast Notes
May 19 - 21, 2022
The calendar indicates it’s springtime, but it sure felt like summer on May 20-22, 2022, at New Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, NJ, during the Tire Rack SCCA New Jersey ProSolo.

Mostly sunny skies, with temperatures in the low 90s both Saturday and Sunday, greeted 190 autocrossers who took part in the sixth of 11 “regular season” ProSolo event, this one hosted by SCCA’s Northern New Jersey Region. The venue featured grippy asphalt and ample paddock space, with plenty of room to create similar, open and flowing ProSolo courses.

How it all started 
In the Beginning: 
Historic Racing Group was founded in 1997 as the Volvo Historic Series (VHS). Fred Hammond, Director of Corporate Communications for Volvo reached out to Tom Lynch in April of 1996. Tom, a club racer and board member of the SCCA's Northern New Jersey Region happened to have a day job putting on special events for car companies. Tom contacted former FVee racer and NNJR SCCA Steward Dave Panas. Legend has it they discussed it “over an Ice Cream or two” and made plans to get it on the road.

The popular documentary series will be returning to New Jersey in August.

The History Channel show follows skilled “pickers” as they hunt through people’s interesting items to find the most valuable antiques. On the top of their want list is a large, unique collection that has a story behind it. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send your name, phone number, location, and description of the collection with photos to: americanpickers@cineflix.com or call (646) 493-2184.
Rebuilding ProSolo: One Year Later
The 2021 Charlotte ProSolo weekend experienced what was described at the time as a “catastrophic failure in the timing and scoring system” that brought the event to an early conclusion and made some competitors question the program’s viability. The result was the 2021 ProSolo season being immediately postponed. One year later, we have great news!

Resetting the Clock: A ProSolo Reset Team led by Brian Conners, with support from Myke Dziengel, Darrin DiSimo, Megan DePietro, Tracy Lewis, and others from the SCCA Solo field staff developed a plan for the 2022 ProSolo season. The timing system was tested and failure points were identified via a lab environment and real-world testing at autocross events.

From SCCA Road Racing Program Operations
This e-mail was originally sent on April 28, 2022 to drivers participating in Hoosier Super Tour or Runoffs events since the beginning of 2021

Dear SCCA Hoosier Super Tour Drivers,
I write to you today, not solely as the staff lead of the SCCA Road Racing program, but as a fellow driver. Friends, we need to talk…

Over the last couple of years, staff has heard concerns from many of you about the level of driving, the number of incidents and the amount of discipline at our events—specifically the Hoosier Super Tour weekends.

Speaking to several of you over the last season, there is a belief that the driving quality has degraded, and the number of incidents increased over the last couple of years. Aside from the number of actions during a weekend, which has not shown a meaningful change outside of the Runoffs, we have not had a mechanism to specifically track the on-track activity. So, following this year’s VIR Super Tour (April 8-10), we combed through the T&S data and Communication logs and complied that information.
