We're still a few months from releasing our local 2014 solo schedule, but the national office has recently released the 2014 Tire Rack SCCA National Solo® schedule, including Championship Tour, Match Tour, and ProSolo events.
Northeast dates of note:
May 3-4: New Jersey Tour (MetLife Stadium, NYC area)
June 7-8: Devens Match Tour (Ayer, MA)
June 28-29: Toledo Pro Solo (Toledo, OH)
September 2-5: National Championships (Lincoln, NE)
The 2013 Solo schedule is now complete - we've had to drop the planned NYS Fair event, and will instead be holding an event October 6th at Shoppingtown Mall. This will give us a full 9 event season
Rallycross has also announced that the season will switch to going from September -> August, and likewise their 2013-14 season is scheduled to kick off on October 13th at Walczyks farm. Additional dates are also scheduled for November 17th and December 7th
Where: Black Rock Speedway, on their world famous frozen clay road course. What: A unique blend of Ice Racing, European Rallycross, and SCCA Rallycross. What does that mean? We will have a combination of wheel to wheel land based ice racing and single car time trials (SCCA Rallycross) all on the same track, on the same day. This will be a joint event (no joints allowed) for Finger Lakes Ice Racers and CNY SCCA Rallycross. It will be a points paying event for those two clubs and I also expect FLR SCCA Rallycrossers to be participating. I am not sure if it is a points paying event for them or not.
