COVID-19 CONSTRAINTS

Please read the following section in its entirety, these changes are necessary in order to safely hold this event:

 

The Event will only be open to drivers who have competed in at least THREE prior Jax Solo Events in the 2019 or 2020 season. Your entry will be removed if our records indicate you do not meet that criteria. This requirement may be relaxed for experienced autocrossers (regularly participate in events with another club) to one Jax Solo event if the cap has not been met by Wednesday prior to the Event. Please check back here for that change on Wednesday 8/12. 

This Event is capped at 50 drivers, pre-registration and pre-pay required

This Event is open to SCCA members ONLY. This requirement may be relaxed for experienced autocrossers (regularly participate in events with another club) if the cap has not been met by Wednesday prior to the Event. Please check back here for that change on Wednesday 8/12. 

8/12 update: Two spots remain. Experienced drivers who are regulars with other clubs are welcome to take the last two spots. Defining experienced/regulars as having competed for atleast 2 years and/or 6 or more events. 

 

If you need to cancel for any reason, certainly to include COVID-19 symptoms, cancellations made via MSR will receive a full refund

We have been forced to increase entry fees to ensure the fiscal health of the club. The additional $5 helps offset the cost of renting a handwash station and reduced number of particpants. Hopefully, its only a temporary increase.

Each driver's best time from the daylight round and best time from the night round will be combined for an overall time, similar to the SCCA Solo Nationals format. Event standings and championship points will be determined by each driver's combined time.

YOU MUST BRING A FLASHLIGHT OR HEAD LAMP FOR WORKING THE COURSE

Not sure what class you're in? Check out the SCCA Solo Rules :

  1. Determine your modification class (most cars are in Street, Street Touring, Street Prepared, or Street Modified, etc)
  2. Find you car make and model in Appendix A of the SCCA Solo Rules.
  3.  Dont be overwhelmed by the Rulebook! Drop the Event Organizer a message or join our Facebook group "SCCA Jax Solo" to introduce yourself and get any questions answered quick! 

Autocross is drive + work sport. All drivers will be required to work a heat and drive a heat, you must be present for both heats. 

 

SUPPLEMENTAL CLASSES:

Jax Solo offers a few car classes that are unique and not defined in the SCCA Solo Rulebook:

PRO "P": offered for drivers who will complete throughout the season in multiple classes or those who have routinely won a particular class. This class will use a 'modifer' based on the cars actual class index/pax. 

(STREET) TIRE "T": offered for cars who class, per the SCCA Solo Rulebook, may run R-comp (treadwear rating <200) tires but instead are running street tires (treadwear rating >=200). This class will use a 'modifier' based on the cars actual class index/pax. 

NOVICE "N": this class is intended for drivers participating in one of their first 3 autocross events. Running this class will ensure that a novice gets the attention and assistance from more experienced participants. Furthermore, the class will run in the second heat after working the first heat so that the novice has seen the action before they drive the course for the first time. This class will NOT use a 'modifier' based on the cars actual class index/pax. A novice discussion will be held prior to the drivers meeting to go over the basics. Additionally, a novice course walk will be  guided by a (typically) nationally competitive driver who will explain the course elements. The Novice discussion and course walk are open to any participant, not just those registered in the novice class!
