SCCA Solo Weekend - School and Solo

Friday, April 28, 2017

Registration ends on April 30, 2017 9:00 AM AKDT

The 2017 SCCA Alaska Autocross State Championshipsponsored by Pearson Auto, kicks off April 28 with a Solo School on Friday evening and all day Saturday, and then our first Championship event on Sunday, April 30.

Note: Pre-registration and payment is required for the Solo School.

For pre-registered entrants to the school, an optional ground school or "chalk talk" will be held Friday evening from 7pm until about 9pm at Continental Subaru, 4900 Old Seward Hwy in Anchorage. This ground school isn't mandatory, but will be geared towards novice drivers or drivers new to our Region, with a lot of extra, helpful information from our more advanced drivers. And we'll have a few fancy door prizes too!

The Solo School and our first Championship event will be held at Alaska Raceway Park, which is located off Sullivan Road off the Old Glenn Highway. All registrations for the Solo School–held on Saturday, April 29th — must be paid-in-full before Registration closes on Thursday, April 27th at 11:59PM. We do have a cap of 30 students for the school, so don't delay in getting registered; first to pay is first to play!

All competitors will need to come by the Registration Tent upon arrival — both those who registered online and those who choose to register at the event Sunday morning. Note that Registration is only open for 60-minutes. You will then head to Tech for your vehicle inspection. 

Our Driver's Meeting will include a brief talk by the Safety Steward and the Solo Team will cover the responsibilities each of your will have while working corners during your "work group." This is event is a go—rain or shine—and as you'll be working opposite your "run group" please bring hats, layers for body warmth, sunblock, and foot wear for the elements.

The Region will be providing water and coffee in the morning, and lunch will be provided for this event for Competitors and Workers. We will be taking a one-hour lunch break. There are no restaurants nearby, so you will not be able to leave the site to travel into Palmer.

Please arrive early to allow time to settle your gear, prepare your car, and get through Tech Inspection before the Novice Walk-Thru. Remember, all loose items will need to be out of your car and your battery will need to be solidly secured—no bungee cords!

Don't forget your Driver's License!
