What is Solo?
Solo® is the SCCA brand name for 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.
