From the Editors


Welcome to the final Redline of 2015. Redline takes December off to plan updates and new features. We have some big plans and innovative ideas for 2016 to make Redline an even better e-magazine. We can’t wait to show you.


Since the Rocky Mountain Division Mini-Con, Christmas Party and Awards Banquet will be held on December 5th, the regular December Board of Directors meeting and the December Membership Meeting has been CANCELLED.

First up is the 2015 RMDiv Mini-Convention, Awards Banquet and Christmas Party. You don’t want to miss this one!

Redline co-editor David Muramoto will be the master of ceremonies at the Awards Banquet. The RMDiv champions will be awarded special jackets and trophies to recognize their well-deserved efforts for the 2015 season. There’ll also be trophies for those contenders who made the champs earn it, so please attend to cheer them all on!

While the saying “better late than never” usually applies, an obituary written almost 10 months late is at best, an oversight. John Barker was a racer who many in Colorado knew from his 45 years in SCCA and a multifaceted career in the automotive business. His passing certainly deserves recognition before the year comes to a close.

Page five is a trip down memory lane. This is the first of a series of articles by the late Bob Wilson, back when Redline was still a print publication. It’s a heartwarming beginning to what Redline hopes will show where SCCA racing has come from in the past and the challenges faced back in ‘the good old days’.

David Muramoto reviews Candy Apple Redness, the 2015 Lexus RC-F V8 sport coupe on page five. He answers the question: will we see it on the track in 2016?

Ed and Andrew wrap up their 2015 season in the Sidewinder Mysterian on page six.

Page eight – RMSidewinder reviews the recent USGP from the corner bunkers at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA). I’m glad they had rain gear (but they could’ve used a life raft).

Speaking of rain, David Muramoto shared in the joy as his latest journey to Road Atlanta was a wet one. Read the Art of Racing in the Rain: 2015 ARRC on page nine.

and much more…
