This autosport event is Solo Autocross: Drivers compete against the clock on a road course marked by cones. The course is designed to challenge drivers’ skill and vehicle handling, not engine power and top speed. Almost any road legal car that is not a rollover risk can be driven. Cars are classed by capabilities and those classes are used to adjust times to level the driving field, allowing driver to driver comparison and competition.
Este evento de Autocross se hace individualmente: Los conductores compiten contra el reloj en una pista marcada por conos. La pista esta designada para un desafio de las habilidades y el manejo del conductor y no del motor o la mejor velocidad. Cualquier caro legal que no sea riesgo de voltearse se puede usar para el evento. Los caros son clasificados por capacidad y esas clasificaciones se usan para ajustar tiempo y elevar el campo de conduccion, permitiendo comparacion y competicion de conductor a conductor.
This event is a “points” event, meaning it is one event in a year-long competition series: the 2023 PAR Solo Championship Series. Rules for the Series can be found HERE.

What should you expect?
At your first PAR SCCA Solo event, you’ll have to register, sign a waiver of liability, show a valid driver’s license, get your vehicle inspected for classification and safety (requirements HERE.), and get your helmet inspected (requirements HERE). (PAR SCCA has loaner helmets available). You’ll then have opportunity to walk the course. You will be asked to help with setting up the event. There will be a mandatory drivers’ meeting where rules and regulations along with safety procedures will be explained. Drivers will be divided into two groups, one group will drive the course while the other group officiates: controlling starts, noting when cones are hit or drivers leave the course, resetting hit cones, etc., etc. Drivers will drive multiple runs, and their best time of the day will be used for competition. When all drivers in both groups have completed their runs, everyone will work to collect all the cones and equipment and clean up the event. Final results will be announced and trophies for the day will be awarded.
- Drivers can have one passenger who must use a seat, seatbelt, and helmet.
- Securely mounted cameras are welcome. Passengers and Drivers are PROHIBITED from operating hand- held equipment during runs.
