The San Diego Roadster Club (SDRC) was founded in 1941 by eight like-minded individuals who wanted to run their roadsters at flatout speeds on the dry lakes in Southern California and the salt at Bonneville. We don't run just roadsters anymore. Streamliners, motorcycles, trucks, bellytanks, you name it, Club members have raced it. SDRC is one of eleven clubs that make up the entire volunteer workforce of our managing organization, the Southern California Timing Association, or SCTA, and is the largest club membership.
SDRC endeavors to offer a unique and purpose driven club to individuals who are dedicated to pursuing, participating in, and perpetuating the sport of land speed racing. Whether it's on the dry lakebeds of Southern California, the Bonneville Salt Flats, or elsewhere in the U.S. or abroad, this pursuit of speed is accomplished by amateurs in a not for profit manner. The last holdout of pure-garage-built-not-for-money racing you'll find!
Membership into the SDRC is limited to people who genuinely want to participate in the sport of land speed racing and are willing to work to ensure the longevity of this great sport. The work is all done by volunteers, from set-up to tear down, and it is a requirement of membership to contribute in some manner.
All entries must be a member of one of the eleven clubs within the SCTA. But, there is a "Guest" option to race on the course for "Time Only". All drivers MUST be licensed for the speed at which they will be racing. All rules in the El Mirage procedure manual are followed and race vehicles are built according to the SCTA Rulebook.
