|Solo Championship Series|
1. Individuals will compete in one or four different classes: Novice ("N" suffix), Street Tire ("X" suffix); Ladies ("L" suffix); and Open (standard SCCA class abbreviations). A competitor must choose one of these four classes at each event. These classes may not be combined to produce hybrid classes, e.g., NX (novice street tire) or NL (novice ladies). Series points are awarded based upon an individual's finishing position according to the PAX for the base class in which the individual is running. (For example, A Street Prepared (ASP) is the base class for ASPN, ASPL, and ASPX. These four classes all share the same PAX for ASP in determing class standings. For an explanation of how the PAX index works, go here.)
2. A competitor's best six (6) finishes in a class will be counted towards the Regional series awards at the end of the year. Although it is possible to win awards in more than one class, switching among Open, Street Tire, Novice, and Ladies classes during the year will LOWER your chances of winning an award in any class! (You must participate in at least four events in the same class to be eligible for a class award - another reason not to split your runs over two or more classes!)
3. Trophies will be given out in accordance with the Solo awards guidelines: one trophy for one to three entrants; two trophies for four to six entrants in a class; three trophies for seven to nine entrants; and one additional trophy for every four additional entrants or fraction thereof (e.g., six trophies for 18 entrants). The number of trophies in each of the four classes will be based upon the average participation for the six events with the highest number of drivers in that class during the Solo Championship Series.
