How we Run Events in 2002
SFR Autocross Series
We run two separate series of events each year, the Championship Series and the
These are separately scored and trophies are awarded for
The same Supplemental Regulations apply.
Series is generally from January to September, ending before the SCCA
The Slush Series is after Nationals up till the next year's
Championship Series. Slush tends to be a bit more laid back, but events are run
"Events" and "Rounds"
Our Events Calendar lists autocrosses as "SFR Event" or "SFR
Round 4". These mean the same, except that there is an event
information web page available for those Events classified as Rounds. The
Run Groups are pretty sure, and the site is pretty sure, but anything can
change, right up through complete cancellation at the last minute. Always
check the website or hotline the night before.
General Event Information
Events are open to SCCA members only.
Membership card must be presented to run. Memberships may be purchased
on site, but you will not be allowed to run until your card arrives from
SCCA. Join early. See the button on the top of this screen.
The event will be conducted according to SCCA Solo II rules, as amended
by SFR Supplemental regulations
Karts in SFR events are governed by
the SFR Kart Rules
SFR Handicapping indexes, which are based on
the most recently published RTP/PAX indexes, will be used to calculate

Entry Fee: $25;
By entering you agree to work your assigned work group;
SCCA membership card and valid drivers' license are required
and must be presented at registration;
Helmet is required: Snell type M or SA, '90 or later ONLY; Loaners
are available on a limited basis.
First run group is run on an "inverted grid":
WHY? Because the first car out each day runs on a slippery, dirty track,
and smart drivers want others to clean it off for them. Grid Early.
First car to arrive on grid is put into last position;
Last car to arrive will run first;
Cars in the first run group will be tech'ed on grid.
For first half run groups arrive 1 to 1 1/2 hours before the first
car out to walk the course, register and have your car tech'ed. Help is
appreciated in setting up the course and marking cones.
