So I bit the bullet and signed up for the March 29-30, 2008 Pro Solo, which is being held in El Toro. Lots of racers from all over the place are coming down. The National Solo Tour is held 2 weeks earlier in San Diego, then the Pro Solo occurs. After help from my fellow autocrossers on Solo2.com, I found my real class, EP (E Prepared) – I’m gonna get my ass handed to me, I just know it, regardless of class, haha.
For those who don’t know, the Pro Solo differs from a regular autocross with a “drag light” christmas tree start & 2 mirror courses, which 2 competitors run @ the same time, then loop around to the other side, line up, and run again.
I’ve done a few local championships, which I’ve also placed pretty low, but this should be a great new learning experience. I’ll update as the event comes closer.
In the mean-time, I found this picture of me running @ a practice down in El Toro last year in my little sister’s Sentra (yes, it’s also automatic) – IIRC, the course was based on a previous National solo or pro solo course, so I thought it was appropriate:
