2014 MiDiv Solo Series Event #1
Crowder College in Neosho, MO
This is a sanctioned Sports Car Club of America Solo event held under the 2014 Solo Rules and 2014 R&S/SPS MiDiv Solo Series rules, supplemented by the following regulations. A minimum of three runs each of the two days will be allotted.
There are gas stations, WalMart, and fast food on Highway 59 about a mile North of the intersection of MO-D. There is no air available at the site, so prepare accordingly. Our friends at the Crowder College Trucking School usually grill lunch on-site at modest cost.
Safety and Conduct
Spectators and competitors not working must view the course from designated spectator points.
A walking pace must be maintained in areas outside course. Speeding, burnouts, tire-warming, and other inappropriate activities at or near the site are potential grounds for event disqualification at the discretion of the series Solo Steward, event chairperson, safety stewards, or their designees. The site is an active flight line, and there will be no tolerance for unsafe, reckless, or unsportsmanlike behavior.
In grid and paddock, please drive slow and be mindful of people, cars, equipment, and oncoming traffic sharing close quarters. Be aware that youth karts are anticipated entrants, and that no vehicles may be in motion during their runs.
A limited number of loaner helmets will be available. If using one during a run, please return it to the loaner helmet area.
Run/work assignments will be pre-assigned based on the entry list, and in a manner that balances heat sizes and worker coverage. Changes in class or no-shows may demand a change in heat arrangement.
Workers should be ready to report for work before their heat begins. Heat changeovers will be brief. Please listen for announcements made by the Chief or Workers and be on time for your work assignment. Lateness may be taken as a no-show, and result in a disqualification.
Vehicle Identification and Marking
Car number and class must meet the minimum requirements outlined in the Solo Rules. Shoe polish is not acceptable.
Cars must display the applicable series contingency stickers. Decals will be available from Tech and the event sponsors, and will be checked during tech inspection.
Impound and Protests
Results will be posted on the timing and scoring trailer during each heat. Immediately report discrepancies to the event chair or his designee so that they can be brought to timing and scoring for review. Please do not bother the timing and scoring trailer during competition.
Cars must remain in their grid spot after competition runs until released by grid personnel. If equipped, cars must have their trunks and hoods open after their last run of the heat.
Protests must be reported immediately to the chief of grid, event chair, or series Solo Steward for review by the series Solo Steward.
