About this event
The Kansas Region SCCA will be hosting Solo events #3 and 4 at the Stormont Vail Events Center on July 1 and 2 located in the heart of Topeka, KS.
New to Solo?
“Solo®” is the brand name for SCCA® Autocross and on paper it seems very simple – use traffic cones to make a mini-road course in a parking lot or airport and see who can get the lowest time without hitting any cones or going off course.
Despite the low overall speeds attained during competition, it’s one of the most intense, rapid-fire forms of motorsports you can enter, with barriers to entry low enough that many drivers are able to be quite competitive at it.
Competitors range from the casual participant who may use the same car that they drive daily to work to the hard-core driver who has a dedicated competition car, special tires, and uses lots of vacation days to squeak out every last fraction of a second. In between the extremes, there are levels and classes for different degrees of car modification. There are even classes for ladies.
Whatever your level or car – there is a place for you in SCCA Solo.
If you have never autocrossed before or don’t know the specific details, check out the "I want to Autocross" page. It will give you the basics of participating in an event. Don’t worry – it’s pretty easy and there are people to help along the way.
Kansas Region SCCA offers all National Solo rules classes as well as a Novice class for those new to the sport. The complete rulebook can be downloaded here: https://www.scca.com/pages/solo-cars-and-rules
