About this event
The SCCA Philadelphia Region 2018 SOLO Summer Series
This event will be run in full-day format and is capped at a maximum of 180 drivers.
If this is your first Philly Region event:
Philadelphia Region runs a novice program to help newcomers to the sport get through their first couple of events and have fun doing it.
- There will be a Novice course walk with an instructor at 9am. Walk the course on your own before this time, in order to get the most value from the guided walk.
- During your run group, Instructors will be available - put your 4-way flashers on to indicate that you'd like one to ride along.
- If this is your first autocross event, arrive early to ensure that you have time to register, prep your car, tech, and walk the course before 9am.
- All autocross events are run/work events, and during one heat you will help work the course. Please review this useful information about courseworking put together by the Susquehanna region: http://www.scca-susq.com/autocross/beginners-guide/working-the-course/
This event will be run in full-day format with two to three heats, depending on final registration numbers.
Everyone must check-in at registration in the morning, even if you pre-register online, to obtain a barcode for our registration program!
The site is open at 6:30 AM. We strongly suggest that you plan on arriving by 7:30 AM to allow time to get your car ready, check in at registration, get your work assignment, get your car through tech inspection, and then have time for course walks prior to the mandatory drivers' meeting.
