Solo events are a form of automotive competition in which one car at a time negotiates a prescribed course in the shortest possible time. The solo events program is intended to provide a large segment of the club with an inexpensive, safe means of testing their driving ability and car performance. Solo events are single car, non-speed events which place a greater premium upon precision driving than all out speed.
Solo events, which are also called autocrosses and slaloms, are open to anyone who has a sports car, compact, or small sedan. The only requirements to compete are a valid state drivers license and a car which will pass a safety technical inspection. Competitors under the age of 18 must also have parental consent. Depending on our particular interest, there are competitive classes for: stock cars which are basically in the identical condition they are driven on the street, street prepared cars which allows the use of after market bolt on performance items; prepared cars which can be prepared the same as road racing cars ; and modified cars which can be almost anything. The cars are divided into designated classes based on their potential performance and handling ability and each driver competes against the other drivers in his or her particular class. Drivers are scored on their fastest time through the course plus any penalties and the top finishers in each class receive trophies. At the completion of each season the top drivers in each region compete in Divisional and National Championships.
