HOW TO GET STARTED
“Solo®” is the brand name for SCCA® Autocross and on paper it seems very simple – use traffic cones to make a mini-roadcourse in a parking lot or airport and see who can set the lowest time without hitting any cones or going off course.
Despite the low overall speeds attained during competition, it’s one of the most intense, rapid-fire forms of motorsports you can enter, with barriers to entry low enough that many drivers are able to be quite competitive at it.
Competitors range from the casual participant who may use the same car that they drive daily to work to the hard-core driver who has a dedicated competition car, special tires, and uses lots of vacation days to squeak out every last fraction of a second. In between the extremes, there are levels and classes for different degrees of car modification. Anyone with a valid driver's license can compete.
Whatever your level or car – there is a place for you in SCCA Solo.
Check our events page to see a full listing of our events. The Solo/Autocross season starts around March and ends in October/November.

Make sure you arrive early enough to get checked in, get your car ready, and have time to get familiar with the course.
Be sure to attend the driver's meeting for the run schedule and any other updates.
Final event results will be posted on our website after the event. Look for an announcement on our facebook page.
If this is your first time, we offer course walks specifically for novices.
A Solo/Autocross event can be overwhelming at first, but we are here to help. The most important thing is to HAVE FUN!
