Join us for the 2014 Oregon Solo Season
Solo Safety Steward Training - August 9th
We are required to have one Solo Safety Steward (SSS) at our events at all times. To achieve coverage we maintain a pool of SSSs that we can pull from for any given event. This usually works, however, our ranks are getting low.
We will be providing Solo Safety Steward Training on Saturday, August 9th at our Packwood, WA Event. If you are interested in becoming a Solo Safety Steward (SSS) or need a refresher, please join us for the class (approximately 1 to 1.5 hours in length). To sign up for the training or if you have questions, let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Are you new to Solo competition?

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.
