Solo Rules/Classes

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.

Class Rules:


What you should expect to gain from this class:

The Novice Class was created to help people new to autocross have fun and learn from the very first event.  This is a new sport for you, and we want to ensure that you are comfortable at all times.  This class will help you to learn from an instructor, to show you some of the basic skills to get you started, and help you get all of your questions answered.

The Novice Class is designed to let all newcomers compete against each other, regardless of their car or preparation level. The PAX index is used to handicap the different classes and categories.  Novice class drivers compete only against each other, scored by PAX indexing. Trophies are awarded for the Novice Class by the same system used for the open classes. 

Most importantly, remember this is a Novice Program, a whole package for instruction and fun. It includes instructors, a guided course-walk, and rides with experienced drivers. We want to answer all of your questions and help you have fun.
