“It’s more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slowly,” is a common aphorism in these parts. But slow racing? The UK’s Slow Car Club is for drivers who want to race “without going to all the bother of buying a fast car, getting a racing license, or doing any tuning.” South Dakota’s SC (Slow Car) Racing club shares their lack of motivation. Organizer Trevor Puckett proclaims “We are not out to have the loudest car, the brightest underglow, the better brand name, or who can break the law the most in one night, we are all about a driver's skillz, and to have fun.” Our news peg for this story? The Slow Car Club holds its next event on September 2; they need all the advance warning they can get.
