About this event
Solo (Autocross) is the most accessible motorsport around! All you need is a driver's license, a car, and $50. Push you and your car to the limit with no more risk than you having driving on a public road!
- Registration closes at 8pm the day before the event.
- On-Line Registration Fee:
- SCCA Member - $35
- Non-SCCA Member - $50
- Don't forget to sign the e-waiver in advance to get onsite.
- Don't forget to do your Virtual Drivers Meeting before the event!
- Numbers come on a first come first serve basis. So you're welcome to pick any number from 0-99 if you're a single driver.
- If you're sharing your car (co-driving) with someone at the event, one of you will need to run a 1 in front of your number.
- For example if you're #28, your co-driver will need to be #128.
- This helps keep grid organized and moving.
- If you're unsure of what class to run, there's an option called "I Don't Know" which you can select and someone will email you in regards to classing.
