You have to be an SCCA member to enter any SCCA National event. So consider that.

Entry for a ProSolo is $73. Worth it!!!!

You get a minimum of 12 runs. You run 2 runs each side (Left, Right, Left, Right..or Right, Left, Right, Left) Saturday morning. Then grid up based on how fast you were, the top two guys go first...etc. Sucks to be at the back of the line. You get a total of 4 more runs Saturday afternoon. You do 4 more runs Sunday morning.

Fastest 32 drivers (class winners and then fill in based on those closest to the class winners) go on run the Super Challenges which is the sudden death elimination format.

Winners of the Challenges and the Class Competition are awarded money prizes, and contingency awards, like free tires from Hoosier or Yokohama or Kumho.

There is also a randomly selected Bonus Challenge which is very cool if you get picked. You run on your own index, so theoretically, a poorer driver has a better shot, as they can still find time to improve out there.

In my previous cars, I almost always made the Super Challenge. I do not know if I can make it in the Elise yet.

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

I just realized this writeup was here (I tend to forget and ignore sticky threads). Thanks, Randy, it was very informative as I prepare for my first Pro this weekend.

thanks for the information. i am considering trying this out to see how it goes. it never really occured to me to try is, as they require some travel, but reading about your enthusiasm for this type of event, it makes me want to give it a try.

i am guessing that some "practice" at drag racing would also help in terms of the launch technique and reaction refinement... i've never drag raced, so i'll start there first.

My son Alex and I will more than likely be there in ASP and I also believe Jay and Ambrose will be there as well.

Perfect! My father and I are already registered in ASP. It would be great to have others in the class too! PPIR is a fun venue too, dont miss out!

Looks like you have 5 now. Hmm, I wonder if Jay wants a co-driver?

Late to the party, but thank you for the writeup. I signed up for my first ProSolo in DC for this weekend and can't wait.
