SUPPLEMENTAL RULES AND ONLINE DRIVERS’ MEETING

GENERAL

  • CHECK-IN WITH REGISTRATION: DO THIS AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE AT THE SITE! Even though you are pre-registered, you must still check-in on the morning of each day of the event. Registration will be open by 8:00 AM at the latest; usually earlier.
  • WORK ASSIGNMENTS: ALL SOLO COMPETITORS MUST WORK. Without help from everyone, we cannot hold these events!
    • Check-in with the worker chief and go to your work assignment area promptly before the beginning of your assigned work heat.
    • Final Run/Work heats and work assignments will be announced and published during the on-site drivers’ meeting and will be announced at that meeting. Do not ask the registrar when you are running or what your work assignment is prior to that, as they don't know until every participant has checked in.
    • If you do not work your work assignment, you will be disqualified from the event.
    • If you do not work your work assignment at multiple events, you will be banned from future participation with CFR SCCA Solo.
  • RAIN OR SHINE?:
    • Solo events occur whether it’s raining or shining.
    • Solo events will be suspended while lightning is in the immediate area, at which time participants and guests should shelter in a car or nearby building.
    • Extreme weather conditions may cause an event to be suspended or sometimes canceled, depending on the expected duration.
    • If an event is canceled, and you have not made any competition runs, you will not be charged an event fee. Unfortunately, if you have made any competition runs, we must still charge an event fee.
  • MANDATORY NOVICE COURSE WALK
    • A “Novice Course Walk” is mandatory for all novices and will start at 8:45 AM at the course start line; all other drivers are welcome.
    • This course walk will be conducted by one or our Senior Novice Instructors

SCHEDULE INFORMATION

  • It is best to arrive no later than 8:00 AM to give yourself time to Check-In, get your car Tech Inspected, and to walk the course one or more times.
  • Depending on several factors, the registrar may or may not allow registration or check-in after registration is closed (8:45 AM). If the registrar allows late registration/check-in, a $10 late fee will be imposed.
  • Novices: Be finished with check-in and tech inspection by 8:45 AM, as a mandatory Novice Walk Through of the course begins at 8:45 AM at the start line with an instructor.

WORK ASSIGNMENT SELECTION

  • If you are a novice, you must select the Corner Station work assignment.
  • Only select Solo Safety Steward if you are a current holder of an SCCA SSS License.
  • Only select any waiver position if you have an annual (or greater) SCCA membership.
  • All work assignment selections are considered REQUESTS. All attempts will be made to honor your requested work assignment; however, we must balance the personnel available per heat based on the class groupings per heat.
  • Special needs should be communicated early (two or three days prior to the event) via an email to CfrSolo2@gmail.com with the event name and “Work - Special Request” in the subject line.
    • Special need examples include, but are not limited to:
      • An ailment that prevents you from replacing cones.
      • An ailment that prevents you from standing for the duration of a heat (a heat is typically an hour and a half).
      • A personal need that requires you to leave the event early.
    • Permanent special needs (i.e., arthritis, other physical impairments) once established with the event organizers need not be recommunicated for each event.
    • Not including the legitimate permanent special needs, Special Requests should only be requested under rare situations, as it greatly increases the difficulty of doing run/work orders and worker assignments with many Special Requests.

    • In the above linked materials, please note that Junior Driver karts must be legal for the class the driver is running in (JA or JB),

    • Battery is secure.
    • Body panels are secure.

  • For cars not specifically excluded on the above list, or specifically included in Appendix A, to be eligible, the vehicle must comply with the Stability requirements of Section 3.1 of the 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules.

CLASSES

  • Novices must register in either Novice Street (“NS”) or Novice Race (“NR”) class depending on whether you are on street tires (i.e., treadwear marked on the tire as 200 or higher) or race tires (i.e., no marked treadwear, or treadwear < 200).
    • Novice registration is required/permitted for the first three events for those drivers with no autocross/solo experience.  After three events, you should register in the appropriate regular class. If you have experience with other clubs you do not need to register as a novice.
  • For modification allowances respective to each category, see Sections 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20 of 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules, which define the classing categories, and the allowable modifications in each category.
    • Cars that are near stock will generally fall into Section 13 “Street Category”.
    • If you have modifications to your car, work down the sections from Section 13 to Section 19 to find the category that accommodates all of your car’s modifications.
  • To determine classing for a car within a category, see Appendix A of 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules.
  • And…  just ask one of the event officials, and he/she will either help you determine your class, or point you to some other official that can do that.
  • CFR SCCA Solo also has a regional only class for highly prepped cars running on Street Tires, which is called Street Touring Other, “STO”. See the limited rules for this class at CFR SCCA Regional Class - STO.

Helmets

  • All drivers must wear a SNELL 2005/2010/2015 (M or SA) approved helmet. Other European standards are also accepted. See 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules.
  • If you do not own a helmet, we have loaner helmets available in exchange for your Driver’s License as collateral.
    • Pick these up at the timing trailer/tent prior to the heat you will be running.
    • In rare cases of high demand for loaner helmets, it may be required that you share the helmet with other competitors, or to turn in the helmet between your runs.

Sound Policy

  • Our general sound policy will be the same as for SCCA Solo National events. The general limit is 100 dBa at 50 ft where the vehicle is expected to be at its loudest. See Appendix I of the 2018 SCCA® National Solo® Rules for details.
  • The exact implementation for our regional events, will be somewhat different in that we will generally not have a dedicated sound position. If, in the opinion of the event officials, any vehicle might be in violation, the sound level for that vehicle will be measured on its next run, and the SCCA National rules will be imposed.
  • Note: Directional exhaust tips aimed laterally away from the sound measurement station DOES NOT constitute a viable remedy, although directional exhausts may be used to aim the exhaust straight up, straight down, or straight back.

Pre-Registration Required, Pre-Payment Required

  • To keep our prices as low as feasible, and to improve the starting time for our events, we require pre-registration and pre-payment for all of our Drivers at all of our Events. Registration/Payment at the event site will only be allowed at the discretion of the Registrar, will incur an extra fee of $10 for on-site registration, and will only be allowed up to 8:45 AM the morning of the event.

Payment Policy

  • With our move to MotorsportReg.com for registration, we will authorize your credit card at the time of registration, but we will only charge your card after the event has completed.
  • f you cancel your registration prior to registration cutoff on Motorsportsreg.com, (5:00 PM the day prior to the event), you will not be charged.
  • If you cancel after that time, or do not show up for the event, you will be charged a fee of $10.

X Class

The X Class was created for those drivers seeking to run directly against other drivers that have chosen to run in the X Class and using PAX to determine the trophy and points winners. This class, intended for more accomplished and Nationally competing drivers who are looking for a more difficult challenge than they are receiving in their respective regional open classes.

The 2019 rules for the X Class are as follows:

  • X Class drivers will normally drive in the same heat, although for logistical purposes and in order to accomplish work assignments, they may drive in heats other than their assigned heat.
  • X Class drivers will receive trophies and year end points based on their PAX time relative to other X Class drivers.
  • For X Class competition, only the first three runs will count for X Class competition, both for Event Trophy and year end points.
  • NEW for 2019: For overall PAX competition and year end points, all runs will count for X Class competitors.

STO Class

The STO Class, aka Street Touring Other, is a CFR Regional class that was created for those drivers who have modified their cars beyond street tire class eligibility, such as Street Modified, Street Prepared, or Prepared classes, but are still street legal, and would like to run on Street Tires instead of Slicks or R-Comp Tires. The rules for this class are somewhat limited and are defined in CFR STO Rules.

Special Considerations and Allowances

  • Course “Check Runs”
    • The course designer or other cognizant event official, is allowed/encouraged to make check runs of the course to look for safety issues, and course “visual” issues.
    • If the check-run driver is also a competitor, these runs should if reasonably possible be taken in a car dissimilar from the car the check-run driver will be competing in.
    • Check runs are necessary and specifically allowed. That is, no protests will be allowed against the check run driver for making these extra runs.
  • Instructor Runs
    • Depending on the class heat assignments, it is inevitable that instructors will sometimes be driving student cars prior to their competition runs.
    • Instructor runs are not to be made at “Ten-Tenths”. Instructor runs should be made at a level appropriate to instruction of the particular novice driver.
    • IF the instructor is driving a more experienced drivers car, and the “student” has asked for a “Ten-Tenths” run to find out “what the car can do”, this must not be done prior to the instructor’s competitive runs.  This kind of instructor run usually should be reserved for “fun runs”, but always after the instructor has completed his/her competitive runs.
    • Instructor runs prior to their competitive runs are sometimes unavoidable. These runs being necessary and for the benefit of the Novice or less experienced drivers, will be allowed. That is, no protests will be allowed against the Instructors for making these extra runs.
  • CFR SCCA Event Officials
    • Those participants doing work for the event that prevents or disrupts their normal competition timeline are given special allowances.
    • For instance, they can walk the course during the Driver’s Meeting.
    • They can make their runs in a different heat than their assigned run heat or even spread their runs across multiple heats if necessary.
    • In the interest of competitive fairness, it is expected that use of this “heat flexibility” privilege will only be used when necessary for accomplishing necessary event work, and never for the purpose of gaining any competitive advantage.
