Joining Kentucky Region and the SCCA
There are three different types of membership that can be used to participate in our events. They break down as follows:
Full Kentucky Region and National Member:
We encourage all of our participants to become full members of the SCCA National Organization and Kentucky Region SCCA. This allows you to compete for year end awards/trophies, provides competitors with the highest level of liability coverage at our events, includes a subscription to the SCCA’s magazine SportsCar, and best of all, it pays for itself quickly. In order to become a full member of both the National SCCA and Kentucky Region, you will need to apply for membership (online at scca.com or using a membership packet available at our meetings and events), indicate Kentucky Region – Region 17 – as your home region, and pay the membership fee + local dues of $10. Once you have joined, be sure to carry your membership card, as it is required at many regions’ events for member entry fees. Join Now!
If you are already a member of another SCCA Region, and can present a valid membership card to verify your membership, you will be able to sign up for an associate membership. An associate membership allows any currently valid member of an SCCA region to participate in our year end Solo2 Points Series. Without an associate membership, points accrued while running at KYR events will not count toward a year end trophy, so if you think you might want to compete, sign up early in the season. Cost for this membership is $10 and you can sign up at registration of any of our events or by contacting anyone .
This program is geared to encourage growth of regions and market to our guests and casual participants. Previously, competitors that were not SCCA members were considered guests of the region, and required to pay an additional $5 over the member cost at our events in order to cover increased insurance costs. Starting with the 2008 season, the extra cost for competitors that are not full SCCA National members is $10 per event over our normal entry fee. This money is directed to the National Office to provide the membership office with a means for contacting casual participants and providing them with membership packets, complimentary issues of SportsCar, and a coupon good for a discount on their National Membership. If you plan to run with us for more than just one or two events, please consider becoming a full member, as it pays for itself in a just a handful of events. Also, points earned by ‘Weekend Members’ will not count toward year end awards.
