Your humble author has usually struggled as a National Solo driver, but I’m not ashamed of losing to these guys; some of them are the finest technical drivers in the world and even the worst National Solo driver is usually pretty decent. If you’ve ever wondered how you would stack up, now’s the time to find out.
The 2013 Solo season is here. TTAC may be attending a few of these, and we’ll be offering a free prize (probably a crummy press kit) for any readers who out-PAX me. (PAX is the system that equalizes times across classes, letting you compare your time in a Mustang GT vs. my time in a Honda S2000, or vice versa). More details as they come up. In the meantime, if you have one of these events near you, consider going as a spectator. Watching autocross may not sound like a compelling proposition but simply observing the way some of the best SCCA cone-crushers do it will make you a better driver, guaranteed.
