Baja SAE Validation Waitlist and Multiple Event Announcement
Registration Fast Facts
- As of Friday, Dec 4th registration is now closed for the Knowledge Event.
- Currently we have 185 teams registered for the Knowledge Event.
- Validation Event registrations are open until January 18, 2021.
- Currently we have 90 teams registered for the Louisville Validation Event.
- Currently we have 45 teams registered for the Arizona Validation Event.
- We have 50 teams unaccounted for in Validation Event registration; with knowledge that some are looking to compete only in the May – Louisville location for various reasons. Because the event registration is sold out, SAE will be implementing the Waitlist function.
Waitlist Registration will open on Monday, December 14, 2020 at 10:00 AM EST for the Baja SAE Louisville Validation and will close on Monday, January 18, 2021.
SAE wants to remind student teams that getting onto a waitlist does not guarantee your team will advance onto the registration list to compete onsite. Also, we want to draw attention that this year the list may not move quickly due to teams having until 60 days out from competition before making payment and final commitment. In addition, we will be watching what is happening with local restrictions with regards to COVID, for this reason we may be hesitant on advancing teams immediately as teams are withdrawn or removed.
Note: Advancement off the waitlist after the 60 days will require payment within 48 hours. Advancement off the waitlist will stop one month prior to Validation Event.
In a typical year, we allow university teams to register for more than one Baja SAE competition if there is room. This year, with reduced registration number expectations we initially announced teams would only be eligible to register for one validation event. For 2021 scores will be computed for each portion of the competition season separately meaning we will have overall scores for Knowledge and then overall for Validation (not a combination) we will be able to offer teams the ability to register for a second Validation event if spots allow.
Registration window for second Validation Event will open on Monday, January 11, 2021 at 10:00 AM EST for the Baja SAE Series and close on Monday, January 18, 2021. Any event not sold out; teams will have opportunity to register for a second Validation event during this one-week period and will be subject to make payment at 60 days out from competition.
