SFR Worker Scholarship

January 18th, 2018 by James Chartres

Are you a SFR Worker in Club Racing or the Solo Community? Have you always wanted to go to Driver’s School? Have we got news for you!

SCCA sponsors one or more deserving members of the San Francisco Region to the Region’s Competition Driver’s Licensing School. The scholarship is awarded based on service to the Region, and may be given to any SFR member actively volunteering in either a Club Racing Specialty or the Autocross Program. The scholarship pays full tuition, the cost of a race car rental, fuel, tires and support during the school. Larry Oka has a car waiting.

Application: Please submit a single page descriptive of how you have supported the SFR Club Racing or Autocross Programs, what you expect to gain from completing the school and how that will help you support the Region in the future. You may want to include what Worker Crews you have worked on and for how long. Feel free to add any other comments you feel the Scholarship Committee may like to know when reviewing this application. Please include your name, mailing address, e-mail address and a phone number.

Send your application to Marcy Crawford at: marcy.crawford@comcast.net

Application Deadline: Applications must be postmarked, e-mailed or faxed no later than January 31, 2018. That’s two week from now. The recipient will be notified by email, if possible, or phone if no email is available.

Scholarship winner(s) need to arrange for their own personal safety gear (driver’s suit, helmet, HANS, gloves, shoes, etc), lodging and meals while at the three-day school. They will need to complete their own Drivers School entry application and medical exam forms. They are also responsible for any damage to the race car during the school. Upon successful completion of the school, the recipients will possess a Novice Competition Permit, which is valid for two years making them eligible to compete in any SCCA Regional Club Racing event. By completing two Regional Races the Novice Permit may be upgraded to a Regional Competition License. Completing the requirements for a competition license is not a requirement for the scholarship.

Get those applications in now and see you at Thunderhill in February!
