2021 Virtual National Convention registration is open and free!
Regional Executive Update
By Peter Schneider
A short Introduction, for those that do not know me, I started rallying in 1974 and joined SCCA and the Region in 1988, in order to obtain my Performance (PRO) Rally License. My first term on the NNJR Board of Trustees (BOT) was January 1991 - December 1993. Over the years I have served as Regional RoadRally Chair and NEDiv Divisional RoadRally Steward on several different occasions. In 2015 I rejoined the BOT, first as a Trustee and in 2016 I became the eNewsletter Editor and three years ago I moved into the Assistant RE position. In addition to my region activities, I am a member of the SCCA National RoadRally Board and National RoadRally Regional Development Committee and I am active in the Northern New Jersey Porsche Club.

As eNewsletter Editor, we are always looking for input from the membership and hope that you have time to submit a story or two for publication.
Region News
David Poverman - (1933 - 2020)
From an early age “Big Dave” had a passion for anything automotive, especially if it went fast. A lifetime member of the Northern New Jersey Region.

He raced a 1958 Fiat-Abarth 750 Zagato from 1959 – 1962. He and his wife Rosemarie loved living “the sports car life,” and were often found at New York City sports car hotspots like Sardi’s and the La Chanteclair Restaurant where their picture was proudly displayed behind the bar with other famous drivers of the day.

SCCA President Update
SCCA President and CEO Mike Cobb delivered his end-of-year president's update before Eric Prill and and Deanna Flanagan presented SCCA Road Racing's annual awards.

Each award winner was able to join the webinar to accept their award and express their thanks. The evening concluded with the announcement of the 2022-2023 Runoffs location: VIRginia International Raceway! VIR's President, Kerrigan Smith, joined in to present the news. 

Registration is now open for the
2021 Virtual National Convention
It may look different, but it’s never been easier (or more cost effective!) to attend the SCCA National Convention.

This year, Convention sessions will be held over the course of a month, beginning January 23 and continuing with sessions through February 19. Better yet, it’s at no cost to SCCA members, and sessions can be picked and chosen by which are most valuable for each attendee.

The Convention kicks off in, well, a conventional way. SCCA President Mike Cobb will give a kick-off message, setting the tone and goals for both the Convention and the Club itself in 2021. From there, each of the programs – from Road Rally to Road Racing and every parking lot and open field in between – will break out into program direction and overview, followed later in the week by open Q&A sessions. At 7 p.m. CT that evening, the band will come back together for the SCCA Honors and Hall of Fame Awards presentation.

Member Advisory: Driver Restraint System Expiration Date Extension
(Member Advisory Memo MA 21-01)

It has come to the attention of the SCCA that due to COVID-related manufacturing and shipping interruptions, the availability of certain Driver Restraint System brands have been delayed in the United States. Deliveries are expected to resume the first week of February. As a result, the expiration date for Driver Restraint Systems that expired 12/31/2020 has been extended through February 28, 2021.

Belts will still be visually inspected for excessive wear or damage.
