Our Driver's Meeting will include a brief talk by the Safety Steward and the Solo Team will cover the responsibilities each of you will have while working corners during your "work group"!

A Weekend Membership fee makes you an SCCA Weekend Member and will give you a $15 discount towards a full SCCA membership, a copy of SportsCar (our national magazine), and is valid for all SCCA-sanctioned events held during that weekend.

Drivers License: Competitors must present a valid driver’s license and sign the Event Waiver.
Minor Waivers: If under 18-years-of-age, competitors will need a Minor Waiver signed by their parents (or legal guardians) and presented prior to competition.

CLASSES, CAR PREPARATION AND MODIFICATIONS
The Region utilizes the 2020 SCCA National Solo Rules classifications.
For 2019, the Region will have four Classes: Novice for those new to the sport, Ladies for our Female competitors we offer this National Class for those who don't wish to run one of the other classes, Open is our intermediate class for those Region competitors looking for fun with some competition, and Expert which is the "Deep End Of The Pool," with very stiff competition. All of these classes are better explained in the 2019 Autocross Supplemental Rules and can be found on the Region Website at www.alaskascca.org.
Each competitor will be required to present their vehicle ready for inspection to the Tech Inspection Team immediately following Registration. Vehicles shall have mufflers, working seatbelts, and NO leaking fluids, in addition to the other items on the Tech Sheet.
This year the Region will be enforcing a sound limit rule to ensure that we are able to continue to enjoy our sport. The details are outlined in Appendix I of the 2019 National Rules. Bottom line is sound level readings will be taken at a location on the edge of the courses and competitors who exceed the maximum sound level will be given the opportunity to make repairs to meet the acceptable sound level. If on subsequent runs the competitor does not meet the acceptable level, they will not be allowed to continue to compete.
