Default Oss, Opa, Sbi

OSS, OPA, SBI

Anyone with racing experience in any/all of the above have anything to say about the differences/similarities?

I'm trying to get a better handle on who races which organization, and why. I'm writing a feature on the subject, and appreciate any input -- on the record or not.

Those that want competition race all 3, and at the end of the season there isnt any doubt who the real champions are!

So true Pete, and at OPA, we encourage the teams to race each and all associations.

Default Which organization to race

JBS racing is trying to do as many events as possible.I don't have a preference for any particular organization-it just comes down to getting the events sponsored right now.I do enjoy having the coarse set up to practice on though.By the end of the year we will have raced in POPRA,OPA,SBI,and OSS.
