This Event will be scored in a Rally-Cross Format!

  • Your 4 runs will be added together to determine your finishing position.
  • Cone Penalties will still ad +2 Seconds to your time.
  • DNF's will add +6 Seconds to your time as opposed to the run not counting.

This format brings some strategy in to the mix. Do you go flat out and hope you don't hit any cones? Do you play it safe? All 4 runs count towards your time, so good luck!

It is your responsibility to Self Tech Inspect your car.  Honesty is important here. To pass tech, you must COMPLETE THE SELF TECH FORM and provide to the Tech Chief at time of check-in.  This form can be found at the below link:

TSCC_Solo_Self-Tech_Sheet.pdf

Some items to consider are:

  • Clean out any loose items in the car (including the trunk): things like cell phones cables, garage door openers, loose change and such.
  • The battery has to be properly secured.
  • If your floor mats are not physically attached to carpet, they will have to be removed. We don’t want the floor mat to bunch up under the brake or gas.
  • Hubcaps and center caps on wheels should be removed. If your hubcaps mount to the wheel and are held in place by the lug nuts, then they can stay on, otherwise they should be removed.
  • Have a SNELL approved helmet, 2000 or newer (M-rated or SA-rated). Don't worry, if you don't have one we have loaners available.

It is your responsibility to:

  • Check basic fluids such as oil, coolant, and brake.
  • Make sure you torque the lug nuts to manufacturer's recommended tightness.
  • Make sure you have no active leaks on the motor, transmission or diff. Oil on the track is a bad thing.
  • Check tire pressure. If you don’t know what to set it to, a good starting point is typically 40 psi.
  • You WILL experience greater than normal tire wear. Your tires MUST be serviceable, meaning they have appropriate tread, no chords showing, etc.
