If you plan to run SCCA Solo Street Tire classes, you may NOT modify your vehicle beyond the factory-delivered specs (tires, wheels, intake systems, no "reflashed" ECUs, vehicle ride height, etc).  Factory delivered OEM tires that do not have a treadwear UTOG rating of 200 are not allowed in these classes.

No engine oil, transmission fluid or differential leaks.  No fuel or coolant leaks.

Loaner helmets will be available at the site.  If you bring your own, it must be SNELL 2000 or better.  No DOT only helmets.

Saturday and Sunday Event Schedule

Saturday - Solo Driving School - for new drivers and experienced drivers who would like a refresher course!

We will have an approximate one-hour school session discussing briefly the different solo classes, chassis setup, tire pressure setup, the proper driver seating position, etc.

We then will move on to actual driving instruction and evaluation by one of our school’s designated driving coaches sitting in the passenger seat of the student’s vehicle.

We will incorporate the use of a 30 - 40 second (in duration) solo course in order to conduct our actual drivers training. All of these runs will be timed and recorded in order to properly evaluate a student’s driving progression.

We definitely believe that you will walk away with some good driving lessons and skills in order to make you a better and more alert driver on both the track and on the streets.

We will try to make the school as fun and exciting as the sport of solo racing is!

Hope to see you at our 2018 Pan Am Region SCCA Solo School!

Each run will be made on a technically designed, but challenging, course defined by orange traffic pylons. Top Speeds are usually kept at 60-70 mph by the fastest or most powerful vehicles and the course can be anywhere between 60 to 80 seconds in duration. The length of each run is usually 8-tenths to 9-tenths of mile.

A 2-second time penalty will be added to a given competitor's individual timed-run for each and every pylon that is hit or taken down during a run.

Everyone will be expected to work & perform their worker duty or task when directed by the Chief of Workers. We are a total volunteer group of workers and racers. No one is allowed to get out of their worker duties unless advance prior arrangements have been made with the Event Chairman via email. Exemptions for worker duty are a family emergency, having to go to work. Otherwise, all other excuses for not performing your worker duty when requested will not be recognized or acknowledged.

Only one rider per vehicle will be allowed to ride as a passenger in a given run provided that they are at least 12-years of age ( and have a signed parental or guardian form filled-out ) and have signed the event wavier form, plus the temporary weekend membership form also.

Loaner helmets will be available at the event or you may use your own helmet provided that it confirms to the 2018 SCCA Solo Rules requirements. Not DOT helmets.

Every competitor must have a current and valid drivers license or current and valid drivers permit ( with a signed parental or guardian form filled-out at the time of registration ) and must be prepared to present it at the registration table.

All vehicles must conform to the 2018 SCCA Solo Rules safety inspection. It will consist of making sure that all batteries are properly fastened in place, wheel bearings at all four positions are in good shape, seat belts are in good shape and properly fastened, brake pedal test involving no mushy brake feel or leaks, all lug nuts at each position are in place and properly torqued,  all tires may not have any cords or belts showing & are not cracked or split anywhere on the carcass, etc. All coolant, brakes, engine or transmission leaks will be allowed if found to be excessive. All cars must have mufflers and be reasonably quiet during operation.

*We will need everyone's help & cooperation in picking up the course and loading the pylons and all the equipment back into the trailer.

After the course and equipment have been picked up and loaded onto the trailer, we will have a trophy and awards presentation.

We will have three different class categories for this year and trophies will be awarded for each of these three individual categories.

They are as follows:

Rookies Class
You are eligible for this class if you are new or a first time competitor to solo racing and/or if you have not competed for 1-full year of solo competition (4 events or less the previous year).

Intermediate Class
Anyone is eligible to run in this class provided that they are no longer eligible to compete in the rookies class any longer and if they have demonstrated that they are not exactly ready ( due to car preparation, car classification and/or driving experience or skill)  to compete in the Open class. No limit of years of competition here. If someone competing in this class clearly shows or demonstrates a strong or absolute dominance in this class, the Pan American Region board reserves the right to move a competitor into the Open Class at their discretion.

Open Class
This a category that is reserved for drivers that have demonstrated very strong driver skills & experience ( not to be judged in years ), excellent car preparation and/or possess a vehicle that has a distinct and clear advantage over the competition due to its power, weight, tire & wheel size, car classification and/or PAX Index.

We hope that each and everyone of you will come out to experience and enjoy the exciting world of solo racing & competition.

You can pay online with a Credit/Debit card or Check via or you can elect to pay with cash, check or credit card at the event itself.  

Disclaimer: The above event is subject to cancellation due to other event scheduling conflicts that may occur from time to time during the year at the Cohen Stadium facility.

If your street insurance excludes on-track driving, an Autocross + off-track Insurance policy can buy you peace of mind
