Detroit SCCA Summer Heat Solo
Oscoda Wurtsmith AFB
For real time info and discussion of event, go here:
Solo events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver's ability and the car's handling characteristics. This is accomplished by driving a course that is designated by traffic cones on a low hazard location, such as a parking lot or inactive airstrip. While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered in legal high-way driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback creates an adrenaline pumping experience.
Oscoda is a great little welcoming town with one heck of a concrete pad to race on. Please do yourself a favor and do not ignore this event thinking it is just "too far", the drive is beautiful and most importantly "worth it".
There will be a test and tune Friday for those looking to spend some time dialing in their set ups.
Saturdays event will be a ProSolo or mirror event where you best time from your left side course is added to the best time from the right side course to determine you final run time. You will get 8 runs (4 on each side) and this truly is a great way to try this format without the pressure or cost of a real SCCA ProSolo event. Additionally, I am improving the timing software to allow for a run off (single elimination) bracket challenge to be more easily ran. We did this last year and it was great but took a lot of time and manual calculations.
Sunday will be a standard solo using the entire site. We usually like to start early and try to be on the road at a reasonable hour.
