Join us for the 2016 Oregon Solo Season
New Class for 2016 - RPAX
At the beginning of the 2016 season the Solo committee voted to create a new class known as RPAX. In RPAX drivers compete against each other using the current PAX factors (class handicap) to determine final position. The RPAX class replaces all Prepared and Modified classes for vehicles on non-DOT tires.
Fees at the PIR events
Due to an increase in rental fees at PIR last year, the cost to enter an event at PIR will continue to be $35 if preregistered and $40 if not preregistered. This only applies to events held at PIR. Events held in Packwood, WA will still be $30 if preregistered and $35 if not preregistered. A $15 temporary weekend membership must be purchased by anyone who does not show proof of SCCA membership.

Are you new to Solo competition?
If you are new to the sport, please take time to review the information provided on this site - - it will make your initial outing more pleasurable. We invite you to join in the fun at an upcoming event . . . you are in for a ride you won't soon forget!
Autocross is the sport of trying to navigate your vehicle through a defined course faster than your competition. The course is defined by traffic pylons (orange safety cones) and each driver runs solo against the clock. Autocross drivers gain confidence in their driving as they learn how to drive at the limits of their vehicle's potential. Each course is different, thereby offering challenges to all drivers. The key to participation is to have fun and improve over time. The sport is open to men and women - - from those interested in improving their driving skills to those interested in competing on a National level. Autocross competition affords the average individual to come test their car handling skills (and have fun doing so!) with nothing more than a helmet and your every day car. It is not a spectator sport . . . autocross must be experienced from inside the vehicle. Only then will you come to understand what all the excitement is about. It is the most intense 60 seconds you can imagine.
The document covers material that is IN ADDITION to the guidelines addressed in the National Solo Rule Book. Details on how the Championship Series is scored can be found in the supplementals.
This handbook written by Kate Hughes offers valuable information for everyone, not just newcomers. Though there may be some differences in local procedures, the general advice on course walks, etiquette and preparation is common across all regions.
