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:

Competing With Us

Your Vehicle

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

Tech closes at 9:00a - there will be a $5 charge to tech after that time.

  • 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: here are 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  I'm completely new to autocross. Do you have any videos that show me what to expect?
A:  Yes!...
Q:  How can I become a member of the TRSCCA?
A:  Register online here or in person at one of our events.
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:  What class is my car 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:  Can I carry a passenger?
A:  Yes! Passengers (age 18+) must sign the Event Waiver before riding and wear an approved helmet. Kids ages 12-18 must also have their parents sign a Minor Waiver.
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?
A:  The Event Chair is the designer of the course for an event. They arrive on site early to set up the course and, when it's time, deliver the drivers meeting. If you'd like to volunteer, contact our Competition Director.
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.
