Welcome to the Sports Car Driving Association!

Dear SCDA Family,

It is with immensely deep and heavy hearts that we share with you the loss of our beloved friend and SCDA President and owner, Ian Prout.  Ian will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and SCDA family.  Ian was one of the most loving and caring people in the world; he left a lasting positive impression on all who were fortunate to know him.

We have set up a special email address ( IanProutMemorial@gmail.com ) for anyone who would like to share their memories of this remarkable man with his family.  This will help them in this very difficult time.  A memorial service in the celebration of Ian’s life will take place on Friday, April 29th at 11am in Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church of Essex, CT.  The church address is: 14 Prospect St, Essex, CT 06426. A reception will follow immediately in the Parish Hall, all are welcome. Please take a moment to read Ian Uppercu Prout’s Obituary

While we cope with this tragic event, Elivan Goulart with the support of Ian’s family and friends will continue the tradition of his love for high performance driving events that Ian has built over the last two decades.

*UPDATE 4/12/16

Dear SCDA Family,

Thank you for the outpouring of love and support during this tragic time.  We cannot adequately express how heavy our hearts are as a result of losing Ian and how grateful we are for having had the opportunity to have been a part of his life.

The intention was to continue on with the current SCDA event schedule, however it has become apparent that we all need additional time to mourn this sudden loss.  At this time we will be taking a pause on the upcoming 4/18, 4/25 and 5/6 SCDA events.  We will resume on May 23rd at Lime Rock Park.  Those who are registered  events prior to May 23rd will be contacted via email to make alternative event arrangements.

We are committed to honoring Ian’s memory by continuing the SCDA brand of on-track driving events that he loved so much.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this very challenging time. We look forward to seeing you at the track this season and for many years to come.  We could not do this without the love and support of our SCDA family.
