Car Classification

Here is a quick rundown on how to class your car. Classing determines your PAX handicap so you can fairly compete with others. Three over-arching rules apply:

1. Consult the Solo rulebook, which you can download from the SCCA website.
2. If the rules don’t say it is allowed, then it isn’t.
3. If one modification is in a tougher class, your car is in that class.
