What is the SCCA?2018-05-29T21:40:35+00:00

A 60,000+ member non-profit organization which holds more than 2,000 amateur and professional motorsports events each year.

Road Racing

Road Racing is the backbone of the SCCA, holding more some 300 high-speed racing events annually. Of the Club’s members, more than 49 percent are involved on the amateur level either as drivers, crew, workers or officials. More than 8,000 SCCA members are eligible to compete within SCCA’s Road Racing programs.

SCCA Road Racing has three levels of events:

  • Time Trials, which range from driving your street car on a track for fun to competing against the clock;
  • Regionals, or entry level wheel-to-wheel action;
  • Majors, for the top level of competition culminating with the Hoosier Tires SCCA Super Tour and, finally, the SCCA National Championship Runoffs.

Solo

Solo is the SCCA brand name for autocross competition, and the place where many members scratch their motorsports itch. Solo competition doesn’t involve the high cost or elevated risk associated with club racing. Participants often use their own vehicles to navigate the Solo course.

These events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver’s ability and the car’s handling characteristics by driving a course designated by traffic cones on a low hazard location, such as a parking lot.

Solo makes up the majority of SCCA’s events, with approximately 1,200 competitions held each year. The pinnacle of SCCA Solo competition is the Tire Rack SCCA National Solo program, made up of the Tire Rack ProSolo National Series, the Tire Rack Solo National Tour and the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships.

Rally

There are two main types of Rally competition in SCCA: RallyCross and RoadRally.

RallyCross, the more popular of the two and one of the fastest-growing types of grassroots motorsports competition in America, is like a Solo competition on a lowgrip surface. Events are often held on dirt, gravel and even ice.

RoadRally involves two or more people, in ordinary cars, on regular roads, traveling within the legal speed limit. This race is about accuracy, not speed.
