SAN FRANCISCO
SCCA SOLOII

In 2007 I came in first in my class, F Stock. Now on to 2008. This year I plan to add adjustable shocks to Lola, my Mustang with the hopes of increasing her cornering grip. I also plan to make a trip out to Thunderhill for a track day. More videos of those events to come.

I have been competing in SCCA SoloII here in the Bay Area. SCCA is the Sports Car Club of America. SoloII is a timed competition where SCCA rents parking lots around the bay area and sets up a short course using cones. Participants then bring any type of safe car to the event, from showroom stock cars to fully prepared racing cars and drive those cars through the course as quickly as they can without hitting any cones. You are then ranked against cars similar to yours, (called classes) and also ranked against all cars that ran for the day. There are 15-20 competitions throughout the year and winners of their class win trophies and claps at the end of the year.

No that is not a down cone, it is called a pointer cone. It points to what side of the standing cone I should try and navigate to. They are used quite a bit in slaloms. To see more pointer cones, watch the videos above.
