Any El Toro events for 2017? Just the Pro solo?

The only contract that is complete at this point is Autoclub Speedway.

Does that mean that there will be El toro events this year, and its just a question of how many and when? Hopefully that's the case.

Also, I'm curious has anyone ever looked into using the parking lot at the long beach community college's veterans memorial stadium parking lot in? I don't know how receptive they would be to autocross, but thought it was worth mentioning. They have motorcycle classes there sometimes.

I live nearby and have looked at the lot several times, each time wishing the two deep rain gutters that split the lot into thirds and all the light poles were not there. If they were gone, the lot could be fun. As is, it's unusable.

Have we had any recent luck with Anaheim Stadium? I know they do car meets there with drifting annually.

SCCA has listed the El Toro Pro as April 7-9 for a while now. Any reason to think that is in question?

Same here.
... and I thought I was smart for booking SD, El Toro & both Crows as soon as the schedule came out.

On the flip side,I won't miss the Long Beach Grand Prix this year. Yea!

Details are being finalized as quickly as possible. The SCCA will issue a press release soon, most likely this week.

I would suggest waiting for the press release before booking.

Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo Date and Venue Change: Southern California

TOPEKA, Kan. (January 25, 2017) – Tire Rack SCCA® Solo events had been living a charmed life for several years when it comes to the old runways of El Toro Airbase at what is now the Orange County Great Park. Unfortunately, it appears luck has run out as Howard Duncan, Sr. Director of SCCA Rally/Solo, announced today that what was to be the 3rd Annual Last El Toro ProSolo must be cancelled.

In its place, Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo organizers have secured a March 31-April 2 date for ProSolo competitors at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California -- located about an hour’s drive northeast of the original Orange County venue. The original date for the annual visit to Southern California had to be adjusted as the Speedway was previously booked.

“Due to pending land development, a formal contract was not offered for use of the Orange County site this year. Instead, a verbal agreement, which could be rescinded at any time, was offered to use a diminished amount of space,” Duncan said. “This was obviously not a situation we could accept, especially for our members traveling in from out of town. So, the decision was made to swap dates and return to Auto Club Speedway, which ProSolo last visited almost a decade ago.”
