Max, It would be nice to be able to set internationally recognized records without having to go through any of the FI? organizations. They seem to be very similar to the International Olympic  Committee which is built on the "Pork Barrel Principal". What is needed is an organization that is more interested in speed and supporting the racers instead of one that attempts to build fortunes and self importance while bleeding the racers as dry as possible. With today's technology there is probably little need to transport "representatives" all over the globe and then to submit the records that result from approved meets to committees that meet in exotic locals to achieve official records.

I like your line of thinking! cheers cheers cheers

Pete

PS - This should maybe be moved to a separate topic as I can see where the discussion may get extended.

Some research on the Land Speed Authority(LSA) is now required.

Somewhere here in the office I have a set of LSA rules.  Are they a good thing, or a bad thing?

I thought good. I sent all my stuff to Jon Amo after it went bust due to mis-managment.

Malcom Pittwood was present at an LSA event on the salt some years back.  I'll check again with him and maybe start a thread to collect input.  I think it would add a lot to the mile racing if it works out.  The Brits are big on speed trials on old airfields, same with the Euros, who run the kilo, the Aussies are looking for a place to do it and the Kiwis might have interest.  It's my opinion that using SCTA classes allows the greatest number of competitors in the wide array of classes, rather than the restrictions of the FI organizations.

Dan I still have my LSA stuff.The last LSA meeting was in 1994. Prior to that there were record certs given to a few racers at one of the meets including Al Teague,Don Vesco, Leo Hess & Mike Cook as I recall. It's a shame it went away as I thought it had a lot of merit and would be good all over the world if it continued.

If you use SCTA classes it is not really a World record is it? The SCTA classes are National in scope and do not apply Internationally. We can't get it right stateside, witness the AMA vrs. SCTA.

SCTA format will offer racers the widest range of classes, car, bike, truck, streamliner, etc., in which they can participate.  WoS works well because the classes use the SCTA rules book.  Maybe no one is interested, but it seems to me the mile racing around the country would benefit from including an opportunity to run for a record under a national/international governing body.  I'd be happy to drag the audio equipt to a few races if Slim was okay with it. 

Okay, new thread starting.

So, Max -- you started the new thread, right?  So I don't need to do so, right?  Fine and dandy with me.  And now -- what's the latest from Mojave?

Apparently no SCTA class cars. There is your answer to the question asked - is there any interest?
