The SCCA may have had to cancel the Tire Rack Solo Nationals for this year, but that doesn't mean that national-level autocross events have come to a standstill.

Four events have been added to the 2020 Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Tour in an attempt "to bring some autocross competition back to the world despite the challenges offered during this calendar year."

Events will take place at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee; the Toledo Express Airport in Maumee, Ohio; the Grandsport Speedway in Hitchcock, Texas; and the South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil, Georgia.

In addition to those four events, the SCCA will hold a modified ProSolo at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia. Called ProSolo-1, the event "utilizes the stage lights, shot clock and tree, along with the rapid pace of a ProSolo as drivers will make all of their morning and afternoon runs without going back to grid." Drivers will get three morning runs and at least two afternoon runs, with the final score calculated by adding together the best times in each heat.

The Solo National Tour events each have an entry cap of 200 participants, and the ProSolo-1 event has an entry cap of 150. All participants should take note of national, state and local COVID-19 restrictions.

ProSolo Added To National Solo Schedule

We just announced three new Tire Rack SCCA Solo Championship Tour events for the remainder of the year, but there’s one more event being added to the National Solo schedule.

November 6-7 will bring a ProSolo-1 to Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, GA.

ProSolo-1 is a modified, single-course version of the traditional ProSolo that utilizes the stage lights, shot clock and tree, along with the rapid pace of a ProSolo as drivers will make all of their morning and afternoon runs without going back to grid. Each driver will get three runs in the morning heat and at least two runs in the afternoon heat. The best times in each heat will be added together for the final score. 2020 ProSolo classes will be used.

Registration will open September 30th at 3pm CDT for all participants. The Entry Cap is set at 150. The ProSolo-1 event will include set up and practice starts on Friday and a full Saturday of competition; the Atlanta Region SCCA is hosting a traditional local event at the same site on Sunday, November 8.

This event has been scheduled with the understanding and expectation that National, state and local COVID-19 restrictions will not change. Entrants should keep an eye on SCCA.com for any changes to schedules or entry caps as events near.
