Who We Are:
The Sierra Sports Car Club has been holding SCCA sanctioned Solo autocross events for over 30 years. We typically hold an event on the first Sunday of every month except December, when we have the annual Christmas party. Check out the Events link for our calendar of events.
Solo autocross is a great way to test the limits of your car and hone your driving skills. No special equipment is needed, and loaner helmets are provided by the club if you don't have your own. Beginners are welcome. Our courses are typically laid out on airfields or parking lots, and send drivers on a timed course marked with pylons. Runs usually last between 40-60 seconds, and you get 4-5 attempts to make your best timed run. We have participants ranging from novices to national champions, coming from as far away as California and New Mexico.
Our events are run/work, so if you wish to run, you will have to report for your work assignment on the course when you are not running. Spectators are welcome and it's free to look and maybe even get a ride along, as long as you sign an insurance waiver.
Cars on the course usually run in second gear, occasionally reaching third in the straightaways, so you are never really driving above the state speed limits. The difference is, it's like driving 60 mph in a 25 mph zone! Safety is key at these events, and we have never had an injury or collision to date. All cars must pass a safety/tech inspection before going on course. If you would like to attend an event and have never autocrossed before, check out "Getting Started" to help you know what to expect and how to prepare for what could be a life changing experience. Did I mention that it can be addictive?
Our next event, will be on November 6th, at Bisbee Douglas International Airport
Next club meeting will be October 25th, 7pm at the Country House restaurant.
