Welcome to the 2016 MBR SCCA Autocross/Solo season!
Autocross is a timed event that pits a driver's skill and a car's handling ability against the clock. A course is laid out using cones and the goal is to travel from the starting line to the finish in the lowest amount of time. A time penalty is incurred when cones are hit, so precision and control are essential. "Autocross" and "Solo" are used interchangeably - "Solo" is the SCCA's specific brand of autocross.
Autocross is one of the cheapest, safest and easiest motorsports to participate in. Our fees (listed below) are low, and no special safety gear (such as roll bars, fire suits, etc.) is required except a helmet (and the MBR Region has free loaner helmets available on site). You don’t need a “race car” to participate. Almost any production car is welcome, from showroom stock to heavily modified. Cars only compete against other, similar cars depending on its original performance and modifications. Cars are never near each other on the course and the speeds are relatively low.
MBR’s events are held at Lake Erie Speedway. The Speedway is an 1/8th mile oval track with banked turns and paved infield, and we use all of it. Oval track racing might not be for everyone, but it’s hard to keep a smile off of your face blasting around the banking and diving off into the infield.
For this particular event, we are holding a Test and Tune on Saturday in addition to the regular points event held Sunday. The test and tune is a great way for beginners to come out and get their feet wet, or for experienced drivers to help polish their skills. There will be 2 different courses run Saturday that are shorter than normal to allow for a lot of repetition. Each course will focus on different course elements such as slaloms, big apex turns and tighter elements. Sunday's course will be completely different, so that's 3 course over the weekend. Instructors will be available for ride alongs to give you tips to help you get faster. There's a discount if you do both days too.
