Autocross (Solo)

In a Solo competition (SCCA’s term for an Autocross), drivers compete over a relatively low-speed course marked by pylons (traffic cones), but you are still trying to go as fast as you can, and hitting a pylon adds 2 seconds to your time. In an average Solo competition, a driver gets 3-5 runs, but usually no practice. A walk (or several) through the course is the only look a driver gets most of the time. No special safety gear is required beyond a helmet, and loaner helmets are usually available. Solo has 44 classes for cars in Street (stock), Street Touring, Street Prepared, Street Modified, Xtreme Street, Prepared or Modified trim (including 125cc shifter karts), plus parallel Ladies classes for most of them. Many Regions also have added classes for novice drivers. Often two or more drivers share a single car. Beyond the Regional level, MiDiv conducts the Solo Performance Specialities/R&S Racing Midwest Division Solo Championship series which brings together drivers from throughout the division. Drivers must be members to compete for points in the SPS/R&S series, as well as for regional championships, but non-member entries are  always welcome. The ultimate goal for autocrossers is the Tire Rack SCCA Solo Nationals, conducted every September in Lincoln, Neb.
