The Arctic Alaska Region, of the Sports Car Club of America, will be sanctioning the 2016 Solo & Drag Weekend at Alaska Raceway Park over the September 24th and 25th Weekend. The Event Chairman promises lots of seat time on Saturday and Sunday will have that added challenge of the Solo Drags too!
Saturday will be a traditional autocross with runs — you know there are a minimum of four, yet we anticipate six-to-eight runs. Sunday will begin with a traditional autocross course with all competitors getting at least six runs: four timed for the Pearson Auto 2016 SCCA Alaska Autocross State Championship and two solo drag runs. Anything past six runs is up to you as the Driver! Never heard of Solo Drags? The course will have 2 cars starting on opposite ends, and using handicaps based on the Championship season runs, they start with lights and the first to complete a clean run and arrive at their starting line wins and then moves to the next bracket race!
Alaska Raceway Park is located off Sullivan Road on the Old Glenn Highway.
Schedule for SATURDAY & SUNDAY Morning
8:00AM - Solo Team Arrival
9:00-9:30 AM — ONSITE Registration Open
10AM — SSS Trackside Talk immediately after Tech Inspection is Closed
Driver's Meeting and Welcome upon close of SSS Talk!
All competitors will need to come by the Registration Table upon arrival each day — both those who registered online and those who choose to register at the event either morning. Note that Registration is only open for 30-minutes. You will then head to Tech for your vehicle inspection. It is best to arrive early so you'll have time to settle your gear, prepare your car, get through Tech, and walk the course!
The SSS Talk is a brief presentation by an SCCA-licensed Solo Safety Steward and the Solo Team; it covers the responsibilities each of you will have while working corners during your "work group" and safety at the event! This is event is a go—rain or shine—and as you'll be working opposite your "run group" please bring hats, layers for body warmth, sunblock/lipschitz, and foot wear for the elements.
Our Driver's Meeting and Welcome will follow immediately after the SSS Talk!
Our Solo Team are providing lunch for Competitors and Workers, as there are no restaurants nearby. You will not be able to leave the site to travel into Palmer. Saturday will be hot dogs on the grill with salads 'n chips (and no doubt cookies), and Sunday will be Chef Surprise with the leftover salads and chips from Saturday. Water will be provided by the Region. For those that have been trekking to Fairbanks or reside there — Chef John will not be in attendance with his gourmet meals of recent events!
Please arrive early to allow time to settle your gear, prepare your car, and get through Tech Inspection before the Walk-Thru. Remember, all loose items will need to be out of your car and your battery will need to be solidly secured—no bungee cords!
Don't forget your valid Driver's License!
We know that there may be some autocrossers coming down from Fairbanks, and we are willing to help you locate affordable lodging for the Solo Weekend. Please contact Cheryl at 745-2013 (9A-7P), by September 18th if you are interested in this. We want to have a count for local hotels 'n options for number of rooms that may be needed! Quiet camping is allowed trackside.
