Solo® is the SCCA brand name for autocross competition. Solo events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver's ability and the car's handling characteristics. This is accomplished by driving a course that is designated by traffic cones on a low hazard location, such as a parking lot or inactive airstrip. While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered in legal highway driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback creates an adrenaline pumping experience.
The SCCA annually publishes the Solo Rules to classify a full range of imported and domestic sports cars, sedans, and purpose-built race cars, as well as to layout the basic rules behind Solo competition. The Solo Car Classifications are provided so that you may determine what types of cars are typically competing in Solo, although there is a class for just about any vehicle. The organizers of local events are also allowed enough leeway to add classes to suit their particular requirements.
The SOWDiv at this time does not have a Solo Divisional Series due to the SCCA National Solo programs that are offered in our division. Members from around the division are going to the National Solo programs instead.
These programs include, ProSolo, Championship Tour Events and Match Tours. We still get together at these events and have fun. The competition is good because it not only includes the people from our division but from other areas outside our division.
The Contingency awards offered at National level events now exceed what could be offered at Divisional Events. These National level programs are two day events just like the Divisional Events of the past. We hold many of the events at the same locations as past Divisional Events.
The SOWDiv is still considering a Divisional Series but with three National Events here in Texas this year, a series may not happen.
