2020 Autocross Wrap Up

It’s been a challenging year losing out on time spent racing with friends. To add insult to injury, and though we’d seen it coming for quite some time, we also lost the stadium as our primary home. Now, at what would be the usual end of our season, we realize that there was no season having hosted only two events. As a result, we have decided that we will not be declaring champions for 2020, and we will not be planning for our annual banquet. It’s a difficult decision, but one also forced by the practicality of not being able to assemble as a group, and the idea of perhaps “asterisked” awards when there weren’t even enough events for a drop. 2020, you can go away now.

What next? Well, we are fortunate to have Lake Elsinore as our primary site and we are in constant contact about when we can restart events. We also continue to search for other available sites. If we’ve learned anything, we’ve got to be prepared for change, have options and be flexible. We have never stopped, and are working, to make autocross happen.

In the meantime, we do have a road rally on December 12, a track day weekend January 2-3, another road rally on February 14, and track day weekends in April and May on the schedule. So, we have opportunities to continue our friendships and love of cars and competition and we look forward to seeing you out there!

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!

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. ...
