What is Solo (Auto X)?
Known as “Autocross” to the non-SCCA world, Solo (Auto X) is the one motorsport accessible to anyone with a car. Low cost to enter and no more risk to you or your vehicle than you experience driving on the road. Push you and your car to the limit without the worry of doing damage!
Steel Cities Region events are hosted at Pittsburgh International Raceway Complex in Wampum, PA Cars are divided up into one of the ~40 different classes ranging from daily driver economy cars on street tires all the way to purpose built winged monsters.
The course is setup with pylons (“cones”) laid out over a large paved area and the drivers take turns aiming for the quickest time around the course. Cars are sent one at a time on intervals, and the events are designed to present low risk. You probably won’t get out of 2nd gear, but it’ll feel like you’re flying as you negotiate the course at the limit!
