2018 Detroit Region SCCA Solo School

The Detroit Region Solo School is back! This drivers school is tailored for brand new autocross drivers and those with less than two years of autocross experience, and will focus on the very basics of autocross performance driving.

There is a classroom session on Friday, April 13th, that goes over the basics of how an event is run, basic solo safety information, and finally, basic performance driving concepts. The next day, April 14th, will consist of practicing these basic driving concepts in morning and afternoon driving sessions.

Sunday, April 15th is the Season Opener autocross. Registration for that event is separate from the school and can be found here.

For more information about event dates and locations, check out the Solo schedule of events. We want to see you there!

There will also be a safety steward school running in parallel with the Solo School. If you'd like to become a safety steward, or need to take the refresher course to renew your safety steward certification, this school is offered at no cost. The classroom segment is on Friday, April 13th, and runs at the same time as the Solo School classroom sessions.

Those who take the class on Friday can then serve as deputy safety stewards for the school on Saturday and the autocross on Sunday; if you work as a deputy safety for both events, the paperwork can be completed at the end of the weekend and submitted for your sign-off as a fully fledged safety steward.
