Indyscca.org Solo Series Presents:
Indy Solo Drag-Cross Event #2
October 12, 2013
Rain or Shine
Grissom Aeroplex, Peru, IN
***NO JUNIOR KARTS ALLOWED***
Take two parts autocross and one part drag racing, mix thoroughly and you get Drag/Cross. Drivers face off, side-by-side at a “drag race” start, before launching themselves down a straightaway and into mirror image autocross courses. Several rounds of class competition give drivers more seat time than a traditional autocross. Not only do these runs determine the class winners, it sets the overall qualifying order for the second part of the event which determines the overall winner. The top qualifiers enter into single elimination brackets and run off until only one remains; the Top Eliminator. Top-level class competition, lots of seat time, awesome courses, heads up competition, the community and camaraderie of autocross, and the excitement of drag racing all combine to make Drag/Cross the most intense form of autocross on the planet!!

Enter the gate at the water tower off US 31.
All SCCA Solo rules are in effect except as explained below:
The event has two parts: Qualifying and Eliminations.
Qualifying will be four runs, two on each course. Cones will count for two seconds added to the time per cone. Missed gates or sections of the course will result in a DNF (Did Not Finish) for that run and a time of 999.999 will be given. Qualifying time will be the accumulation of the four times. Qualifying determines place on ladder for eliminations.
Eliminations will be a ladder format. Example: Ladders will be split into run groups consisting of sixteen cars per group: Run group one would consist of cars qualified one thru 16, run group two, seventeen thru 32, etc. Any competitors that fall into the lowest run group that cannot create either an eight or sixteen car ladder will be added to the first round loser run group. Each run group will ladder drivers this way: Example- a 16 car ladder would ladder one -vs- sixteen, two -vs- fifteen, etc. Each run group will produce one “winner” and the winner of each run group will race each other for Top Eliminator of the event. First round losers will compete in a consolation group that will be laddered according to qualifying time. Hit cones are a disqualification and automatic loss. Each pairing in each round will make a run in each lane. The round winner is the competitor with the fastest combined time from the two runs.
Cone Penalties in qualifying will follow normal SCCA Solo rules. In eliminations, any hit cones will result in a DQ.
Bye Runs must be run and all penalties are enforced.
Starting Procedure will be by arm drop. Starter will determine jump starts. Starter is final word on jump starts. Jumping the start = DQ. Drivers are to leave immediately on the drop of the starter’s arms. Once first driver leaves, T&S will manually start the opposite lane’s timer if other driver doesn’t respond to the starter.
Starter’s Procedure: Starter will line up cars on the starting line. Starter will gain the attention by standing in the starter’s position and pointing to each driver. Each driver must respond to the starter by nodding their head. Starter will raise arms above their head and hold them there. At the starter’s discression, he / she will drop his / her arms signaling the start of the race.
Re-runs will only be granted if both drivers have clean runs. Jump starts, cone calls, and DNFs override a re-run situation.
Red Flag Procedure: If a red flag is called, then both courses are red flagged. If a red flag is due to the result of a disqualifying infraction, the opposite side automatically wins. If the red flag is for a situation other than a disqualifying infraction, the race is re-run.
Trophies will be awarded for Group winners, and Top Eliminator.
Two driver cars: Two driver cars ARE allowed.
