SCCA Road Racing is where drivers race wheel-to-wheel on either dedicated race tracks or on temporary street circuits. Competitors require competition license. Both modified production cars (ranging from lightly-modified cars with only extra safety equipment to heavily-modified cars that retain only the basic shape of the original vehicle) and purpose built formula cars and sports racer cars can be used in club racing.
Most of the participants in the Club Racing program are unpaid amateurs, but some go on to professional racing careers. The club is also the source for race workers in all specialties, without whom racing organization and operation would not be possible.
