What is Solo?

 

Solo is the brand name for SCCA Autocross Competition

Solo events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver’s ability and the car’s
handling characteristics. This is accomplished by driving a course that is
designated by traffic cones on a low hazard location, such as a parking lot or
inactive airstrip. While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered
in legal highway driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback
creates an adrenaline pumping experience. It is like being in a movie chase
scene, only you are holding onto the steering wheel instead of a box of
popcorn!

SCCA Solo Competition

The SCCA annually publishes the Solo Rules to classify a full range of imported and
domestic sports cars, sedans, and purpose-built race cars, as well as to layout
the basic rules behind Solo competition. The Solo Car Classifications are
provided so that you may determine what types of cars are typically competing in
Solo , although there is a class for just about any vehicle. The organizers of
local events are also allowed enough leeway to add classes to suit their
particular requirements.

A Level for Your Interest

Over 1200 Regional – and Divisional-level Solo events
are held across the country at local shopping centers, airports, and stadium
parking lots — or wherever competitors can find a large amount of pavement to
safely layout their courses. The sport typically attracts ordinary sports and
sports-type cars used for daily transportation, as well as heavily modified
vehicles used for racing only. Owners of “street” cars usually inflate the tires
to higher than normal pressures, remove the hubcaps, empty the interior of loose
items, buckle the seat belts, and have a go. A helmet is required for
competitors and most events have loaner helmets available. The Tire Rack SCCA
Solo National Championship, held annually in Lincoln, Nebraska, is the epitome of
Solo competition and camaraderie. Over 1200 drivers travel to Lincoln to create
the world’s largest autocross competition and party. While over 50 National
Class Champions will be crowned in the men’s and women’s Solo classes, the
primary reasons for attending are the dynamics of the event (organization,
competition, variety of cars, etc.), and most of all, the friendships formed and
renewed at the parties and in the paddock.
