SCCA® National Solo® Rules 

The SCCA® National Solo® Rules are a member-generated ruleset built and refined throughout the past 45 years. This rule book is published annually and each aspect of a Solo® event from safety, procedure, and classing is covered so it is used by both officials and competitors.  

Building and maintaining the SCCA® Solo® Rules involves member requests and input, review by the Solo® Events Board (SEB) and advisory committees before they are either declined or the SCCA® Board of Directors votes them approved.  

Keep reading below for rules, how you can be involved in rule changes, and other important documents for Solo® competitors. 

NOTE: Technical Bulletins are periodically issued in Fastrack® News that supersede the information in the Solo® Rules

The Rules are available on-line in Adobe Acrobat format by the SCCA Solo Department to our members, entrants, volunteers, and anyone interested in learning more about the technical regulations governing SCCA Solo competition.

We have chosen to serve this document in its original format using Adobe®'s Portable Document Format (PDF). This allows important documents and forms to be just a mouse click away. With the free Adobe Reader software, users on any computing platform can navigate, scale, zoom-in, and print PDF files directly within their web browsers.
