A red hat will only come when someone breaks the 200 MPH club minimum of 225.

Wow, moving pretty good, 200.123 really blew the lid off the 187.431 record. I was trying to find some information or even a picture of the 647... Nada.

Because it was brought to the attention of the Board Sparky. Then discussed & voted on.

Sparky, there was discussion at the SpeedWeek 2 Club meeting.... At the time the fastest C/AIR was under 190 after several years of running... some by quite high dollar teams.  There was motion that the board consider lowering the number to 210. 
 
What was the issue with PP and MP?  Maybe you need to propose something to the board.  Minimums are reconsidered every 5 years IIRC.

Guys I am VERY new to Landspeed racing, I am currently building a C/AIR car to compete next year. After following this thread I looked through my 2017 rule book for class minimums I could not find anything that referred to C/AIR. So does the 210 refer to the minimum or is there a minimum?

Thanks again,
Chris C.

They are talking about the minimum required to get a red hat.

Mike,

Any luck finding out if the club lowered the minimum to 210?

Thanks for any help,

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

For those who are new to LSR there are many avenues available to record collection. Find a class with what you consider low hanging fruit, build a vehicle and go for it. A person can also do some research of the many organizations involved and determine the best place for you. In the old days of baseball the program vendors would sell their wares by announcing that "you can'tell the players without a program"

This is true in LSR. The Bonneville 200 MPH Club is an independent organization with no ties to any group other than the club recognizes the achievements of drivers and riders at Bonneville. The club maintains its own list of records, many of which are not related to the SCTA, USFRA, FIA or FIM listings. See section 19 of your rule book. There are some open classes among the SCTA listings(open refers to NO established record). In their case two passes average out to a record of some sort. In this case the Club has set a list of obtainable minimums which must be met in order to earn membership.

It is not easy nor is it meant to be. It is no simple task to create a list of minimums when the SCTA adds new classes at their whim. You are welcome to the task. Contact me for an available position. Just because you want to build yourself a vehicle doesn't mean the Club has to establish a easily reachable goal for you.
