Similar to how competitors twist their way through orange-coned courses at autocrosses, the 2023 Tire Rack SCCA® Solo® National Tour curled its way around the United States during a 12-event season that began in March and concluded in November, with the 50th running of the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships tossed in for good measure. Now that the season is over, Solo National Tour Points Champions can be named across multiple classes.
For a second year, the Solo National Tour conducted a season-long points chase. Drivers earned points within a class based on both finish and relative finish as compared to the class leader, utilizing a formula made popular in the Great Lakes Division.
To qualify for a points title, drivers had to compete in the same class at a minimum of three Solo National Tour events during the season, as well as at the Solo National Championships. Plus, series points were only awarded to entrants with an SCCA annual membership at the time points were earned.
Points from a driver’s best three Solo National Tour events within a single class counted toward the total tally. For ties at season’s end, the finishing position of competitors at the Solo National Championships became the tiebreaker.
For a class points champion to be designated, the class had to reach a minimum number of entrants across a minimum number of events. If no drivers within a class met the outlined requirements to earn a points championship, then the class was not assigned a points champion for the year.
