Competing With Us
Your Vehicle

Every car that runs in an SCCA event must first pass a technical inspection:

  • Tires - no cords showing or other damage such as bulges, nails, etc.
  • Wheel bearings, shocks, steering, seat belts and suspension in good operating condition
  • Brakes - firm pedal with no detectable drop with car not running and proper level of fluid in reservoir
  • All loose items removed (radar detectors, floor mats, etc.)
  • Hubcaps and wheel rings removed
  • All lugs present and tight
  • Throttle return action safe and positive
  • No excessive fluid leaks
  • Battery securely fastened
Supplies

SCCA events are a full day affair. To get in more runs each event, we usually do not include a lunch break in the schedule. Therefore, be prepared to eat on the run. Tennessee summers are very hot and shade is limited, so please stay hydrated and protected from the sun. The following essentials will help get you through:

  • If you're under the age of 18, you'll need to bring your parents
  • A valid driver's license
  • Military and student discounts require ID
  • Cash and checks accepted for on-site entry fee (credit/debit cards accepted for online registration only)
  • Lots of fluids, ideally in a cooler, and lunch
  • Sunscreen, SPF 30+ (you will spend 8+hrs exposed)
Gear
  • Helmet: The TRSCCA is happy to loan helmets, but due to the limited quantity we encourage our regulars to purchase their own. A current Snell rating is required by the SCCA: click here for the current (2021) certifications. Full-face or open-face style is up to you.
  • Numbers and class: All cars need numbers and letters to designate their competition group. The SCCA has specific minimum size/location guidelines for these, as noted in Section 3.7 of the official rule book. We'll be happy to help you classify your car and pick your number. Reusable magnetic or vinyl decals are the best option, but blue painter's tape works as well.

Looking for more information? Try the official SCCA website, or the SCCA Solo Rules.

2021 Championship Points
Competitors who complete a full season within the same competition class will be eligible for the TRSCCA's year end championship.
Rules and details are as follows:
  • Competitors must be a registered member of the Tennessee Region SCCA
  • A minimum of 7 events within a class are required to qualify for the end of season awards. Any events in excess of this minimum will count towards the top scores (i.e. if you compete in 9 events, the worst 2 will be dropped).
  • Points accumulation will be based on the following system:
    • 1st Place - 20 points
    • 2nd Place - 16 points
    • 3rd Place - 13 points
    • 4th Place - 11 points
    • 5th Place - 9 points
    • 6th Place - 7 points
    • 7th Place - 6 points
    • 8th Place - 5 points
    • 9th Place - 4 points
    • 10th Place - 3 points
    • 11th Place - 2 points
    • Others - 1 point
  • Novice class competitors may compete in the Novice group for up to one (1) full calendar year, or three (3) class wins, whichever comes first. Then they will be asked to graduate into the normal class for their vehicle. Novices (and new, non-novice class competitors) may be selected for the annual 'Rookie of the Year' award.
Common Q&A
Q:  How can I become a member of the TRSCCA?
A:  Just come to one of our events and sign up!
Q:  I can only attend for half a day. Can I still race with the TRSCCA?
A:  Unfortunately no, competitors need to commit to attending the full event (which generally ends by 5pm).
Q:  I have a (19' Civic / 84' Camero / K-swapped Tesla) with (no / some / lots of) modifications... what class am I in?
A:  Most car's classes are listed in APPENDIX A of the Solo Rule Book and this "cheat sheet" can be used to help with allowed modifications. Clear as mud? Just ask a member and we'll be happy to help place you in the correct class!
Q:  Will the TRSCCA hold any (Track / TimeTrial / RallyCross) events this year?
A:  We are working hard to bring new event types to the TRSCCA! Stay tuned!
Q:  What is an Event Chair and why should I volunteer?
A:  Anyone who has competed in an Autocross event has said "This course stinks, I could have done it better." Well, this is your chance to show us what you've got! As event chair you get to design the course (within SCCA rules and site limitations). You will be required to arrive on site early to help set up your course and help deliver the drivers meeting, but after that, you get to sit back and relax for the rest of the day!
Q:  I'm interested in becoming a SCCA Safety Steward. What do I need to do?
A:  First, read the SCCA Solo Safety Steward Summary. Then inquire with one of our certified Safety Stewards at the next event. They'll help you with the apprenticeship.
If you have other questions, don't hesitate to reach out through Facebook or email our Competition Director directly.
