Northeast Division sources
Most of our knowledge of NEDiv racing comes from the SCCA's Sports Car magazine and from Competition Press & Autoweek. We are very keen to acquire or borrow 1960s, 1970s and 1980s copies of SCCA regional publications from this Division. These include:
- Pit Talk (New England Region)
- The Drift (Steel Cities Region)
- Knock Off (Mohawk-Hudson Region)
- Regional Review (New York Region)
- Spark Plug (Glen Region)
- The Spokesmen (Philadelphia Region)
- The Straightpipe (Washington DC Region)
- Top End Magazine (Finger Lakes Region)
North Carolina Region, which moved from NEDiv to SEDiv in 1969, has made its newsletter available online at the NCR website.
Additionally, Racing Magazine was published as a Lime Rock track magazine.
We are also keen to get scans of entry lists from SCCA Nationals in this Division.
