Tentative schedule for Track Events and Road Rally, planning to add more road rallies in 2021. Track Events are tentatively full weekends, with January as a 2-day HPDE. We hope to add some track attack to the subsequent events - autocross style timed hot lap on the track. More to come!
Road Rally - December 12, 2020 - February 14, 2021
Track Events - January 2-3, 2021 - April 24-25, 2021 - May 29-30, 2021 ... See Less
SDR Autocross 2020 Update and 2021 Preliminary View The Good, and Bad, and Good
First the good! We are extending the validity of all Solo numbers purchased for 2020 through the end of 2021. No need to renew!
Now the bad… As most of you know, our SDCCU lots and the Lake Elsinore lot have been unavailable to us. SDCCU is undergoing demolition and we will no longer to be able to rent lots at the site, confirmed by SDSU management. Not a surprise, but a sad and final nail in the coffin despite our repeated attempts to get any last SE lot events in that we could. Lake Elsinore remains a COVID test site and the City is not issuing event permits currently. Our outreach to numerous potential other sites have also not been fruitful, with many facilities simply not engaging. So, it appears we will have no additional autocross events in 2020 and effectively no “season” this year. Thanks COVID.
Now the good again! What we are doing for autocross is reaching out to Lake Elsinore to “hold” some tentative dates for 2021, in the event that conditions return that allow us to run. We will of course continue seeking alternatives as well.
We are not giving up on our members or on having fun with cars. We are actively pursuing additional road rallies and track days, events that we can host, and expect that we will be having numerous events for each throughout 2021, and may yet have another for 2020. Stay tuned and stay connected! ... See Less
Thank you everyone for coming out to our road rally event and for all the feedback so far. Sounds like it was more fun and challenging than expected and that we need more of these! Big thanks to our Rally Master Ric Senior, he's incognito in the Land Rover below, as he was while doing everything behind the scenes, including a pre-event check run at zero dark thirty in the morning. ...

It's time to throw your hat in the ring if you're interested in serving on the Region BOD for 2021. You must be listed as a SDR Region member in good standing with the SCCA to serve on the BOD. All candidates must express interest prior to the next BOD meeting on October 8, 2020.
Eric Sakariasen is serving as the Nominating Chair this year, appointing a nominating committee and collecting the names of those interested in serving. You can email your stated interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will have three current BOD members carrying over and continuing to serve in 2021, - Eric Sakariasen, Hank Yamfang and Ric Senior. That leaves 4 BOD positions to be appointed by election if there are more candidates than spots to fill. Three current members have expressed their desire to run for re-election as candidates - Peter Bollenbecker, Diane Bollenbecker and Jeff Lonsdale. Steve Coe resigned earlier this year after relocating out of state and is not seeking re-election.
If you would like to know more about the current BOD, its duties, and the Region's By-Laws, you can review the information on our main website under the Region Board tab.
In the event there are more eligible candidates than elected BOD positions available for 2021, we will hold our elections electronically though MSR (as implemented last year) and announce the results at the December 2020 BOD meeting. If the number of candidates is the same as the number of open positions, those candidates will be elected by acclamation at the October BOD meeting. ... See Less
Huge thank you to Hank Yamfang, who stepped up to lead the effort on the BOD to get us back out on track again. Tons of work in the background the last few months getting what we hope to be a continuing program going from scratch. So, looking for volunteers to help! ... See Less
If you pre-purchase a photo package for the Sunday track day, we hear they only take pictures of your car when it's clearly in front of others ... 😆http://www.caliphotography.com/motorsports/signup/ ... See Less
