TOPEKA, Kansas (January 17, 2018) â€“ Today the Sports Car Club of AmericaÂ® announced longtime member and autocrosser, John Hunter, as both the SoloMatters Editor and Starting Line Program Coordinator. In these roles, Hunter will be overseeing all SoloMatters content, as well as the continued development and day-to-day operations of the Starting Line program.
Having been an SCCAÂ® member and autocross competitor since 2002, a Starting Line instructor since its inception, and current Nebraska Region Solo Chair, Hunter is excited to be working in these new roles. â€œI love the culture and passion the members of SCCA bring to the club. We come for the cars, but stay for the people. I am excited to share our members' stories and work as an ambassador to help the club go and grow.â€
As SoloMatters Editor, Hunter will use his previous experience providing content for SportsCar magazine, as well as SCCA communication efforts to tell the stories of competition, community and camaraderie that define the sport.
In his role as Starting Line Program Coordinator, Hunter will work to help SCCA Regions to grow their membership base by introducing new members to passion of performance driving with the SCCA.
