With a new year comes new rules from the powers-that-be.
First, Snell 2005 is now the oldest level of helmet allowed. So all those old 2000s are no longer valid. You can see a full list of supported safety stickers at the bottom of this page. If you need a new helmet, I highly recommend Competition Safety Gear in Campbell.
Second, there are some new enforcements for Minor Waivers. Make sure to check out this page and fill out the form at the bottom for SCCA.
While we’re waiting on a completion date for our new site in Stockton, here is what we have planned for the first 4 months of 2017:
- Round 1, Boondoggle: Marina Airport, February 19th
- Round 2: Marina Airport, March 12th
- SCCA Starting Line School/Test and Tune, Crows Landing: March 18th
- Round 3: Crows Landing, March 19th
- Pro Solo, Crows Landing: April 22-23
- National Tour, Crows Landing: April 29-30
