Default World Finals Canceled

The SCTA has thrown in the towel.
(That's 3 of 4 events this year. So far)
I expect World of Speed cancellation at any time...

Bert was kind enough to post the link on the Notices at the top of the page.

Anybody with a name and a email address can sign the petition.

Please, everyone. Add your signature.
To hell with business as usual.
I'm done with being patted on the head and being told to let the big boys take care of it.

I think you are right. For finals to already be canceled is a bad sign since it is scheduled much later than WOS.

It's hard to have a racing based organization and no racing.
SCTA could suffer some serious setback losing both Bonneville events this year.

USFRA has just one and I understand them not giving up yet.

Fingers crossed, tuning in progress.

SCTA at least has El Mirage and the other events they did in CA this year. But this could be devastating to all 3 groups (SCTA, USFRA, BMST)
