The 2022 SCCA Team Enduro National Championship, originally scheduled for April 1-2, has been postponed, the organization announced.
The SCCA cited the compressed timeline for developing a new program for a Championship event as reasoning for the cancellation.
“We absolutely believe in the Club’s ability to rise to the occasion and deliver an excellent experience,” said Eric Prill, VP of Road Racing, “but we are too close to the launch event, with a to-do list that is too extensive to ask for a commitment from teams in good faith.”
“SCCA needs a program that is scalable from a local regional event to a National Championship. We need to take our experience, not just in road racing, but autocross, time trials and rally, and have a program that works for the Club.
“When the concept of the new Enduro program was first born in late 2019, the Club was in a different place—the world was in a different place,” Prill said. “The purpose for an SCCA endurance program has not changed and developing that concept has taken time.”
There are no plans to change the remaining Enduro National Tour dates, and those events will serve as pilots leading up to a strengthened program in 2023, the organization said. The first of those is May 20-22 at Nelson Ledges Road Course in Ohio, followed by events at VIR in August, Buttonwillow Raceway in November and MSR Houston in December.
