> Please spread the word...
> Mineral Wells Marque Club Challenge May 20-21
> The SCCA ProSolo Department has created a new program at the Mineral
> Wells ProSolo aimed at marque club members who have never
> participated in ProSolo events before. Entrants will be given a free SCCA
> Trial Membership and a special class will be created so that marque club
> members can compete amongst themselves for bragging rights and cash
> b" For the Mineral Wells event the new Marque Club Challenge class is
> open only to competitors new to ProSolo (defined as drivers who have not
> run a ProSolo event in the last 5 years).
> b" The class is open to any make or model of car that can pass a basic
> safety inspection.
> b" They will be placed together in an index class based on how their car
> would be classed in SCCA Solo classes. If we get enough entries we can
> divide the classes by Marque so the BMW's can run against each other, the
> Subies can run against each other, etc.
> b" Each entrant will be given a free SCCA Trial Membership (valid for 15
> days). Within 30 days of the event entrants may apply this Trial
> Membership toward a $15 discount on a full SCCA membership.
> b" Entrants will pay the standard $85 ProSolo entry fee.
> b" After class competition is completed, the top drivers scored by index
> will be automatically entered into the Marque Club Challenge, a single-
> elimination runoff to determine an overall winner. If there are 4 or fewer
> entrants, it will be a 2-car runoff. If there are 5 or more entrants it
> a 4-car runoff.
> b" The overall winner will receive a free 1-year SCCA membership, a free
> ProSolo entry at a future event, and a $75 cash prize from Vorshlag
> Motorsports. The Runner-Up will receive a free ProSolo entry to a future
> event and $25 cash prize from Vorshlag Motorsports.
> How to enter:
> b" Pre-entry is required. Entrants must download the ProSolo entry form
