AUTOCROSS ("Solo")

Autocross (or "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 a great way to explore the performance potential of your car (whether that's a Porsche, Mustang, Camaro or a Volvo)  in a safe and legal environment!

Our 2021 Series was big success thanks to everyone's cooperation with our COVID policies.  The 2021 season may be over, but the autocross team is already hard at work on the 2022 schedule.  We are looking forward to a minum of 12 points events, plus novice and intermediate schools, and more of the popular teen driving program TireRack Street Survival.

Thank you everyone who participated in the 2021 season.  We hope you will join us at the Awards Banquet and Annual Meeting.  The exact date is TBA but we anticipate having it in late January at the Simeone Museum.

SCCA AUTOCROSS COMPETITION

The SCCA annually publishes the Autocross 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 Autocross 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.
