2021 Solo Schedule

2021 Devens Airfield Autocross Dates The Solo board is excited to announce the confirmed dates for Solo events at Devens Airfield for 2021.

The current plan is for the 2021 season to run a Points Schedule of events that will determine class champions at the end of the year. Details are still being finalized, but should be available prior to the first event. At this point, no school events are on the schedule, as Covid guidelines make it impractical to host a school at this time. Opportunities for Novice drivers to participate will be available at some point this season, so please reach out to the Solo board with questions on any novice availabilities. SUBJECT TO CHANGE: As we've all become used to over the last year, please note that all Solo events are subject to current state Covid guidelines. We hope to run a full season, but if circumstances change, we will abide by all state regulations. 2021 Solo Event Dates April 4 & 25 May 15 & 29-30 June 13 & 26 July 11 August 1 & 22 September 19 October [...]
