South East Division SCCA Formula B 1971
Jim Grob retained his Chevron B15B and in the absence of Hugh Kleinpeter comfortably won the Southeast title. Gene Mason and Steve Mandy, both transplanted from Northeast Division, took the other two places for the Run-Offs.
Steve Mandy also scored 4 points in Northeast Division but qualified for the Run-Offs through South East Division. Mandy had a Chevron B15 for the Run-Offs, possibly Hugh Kleinpeter's old car but as Grob had a brand new B20 for the Run-Offs, it could also have been Grob's. Also racing in the southeast at Regional level was former Beach racer Dr Ray Mummery who had acquired the Palliser-Winkelmann WDB3 that Hugh Dibley had raced at Sebring the previous October.

Southeast Division sources
What we know of Southeast Division racing in this period comes from Competition Press & Autoweek's reports on SCCA Nationals and the SCCA's own Sports Car magazine. We are keen to learn more and are therefore very keen to acquire or borrow 1960s, 1970s and 1980s copies of regional SCCA newsletters from this Division. The known ones are:
- The Checker (Central Florida Region)
- Car Sports (Alabama Region)
- CARolina Newsletter (Central Carolina Region)
- The Racket (Tennessee Valley Region)
- Regional Notes (Florida Region)
- Rich Mixture (Southern West Virginia Region)
- Sowega Newsletter (Sowega Region)
- Steering Wheel (Atlanta Region)
We are also keen to get scans of entry lists from SCCA Nationals in this Division.
