Run / Work Policy
Our Solo events are RUN/WORK. For each paid entry, you are required to provide a work commitment. Jobs vary from grid, setup, tear down, cone chasing, access control. We can always use more help. Those who run and choose to leave the event site will be scored as DNW or did not work. All times and accumulated points are forfeited. We do understand that things might get confusing, so a reasonable excuse, and providing a substitute to work for you is permissible.
Membership Has Its Perks!
Join the fun and make a difference... $25 single or $30 family is all you pay for an annual club membership. This is separate from an SCCA membership, but an SSCC Membership entitles you to the same $5 off we offer SCCA members. Run 5 events this year and you're ahead! PLUS...we offer the Annual Holiday dinner as a FREE incentive for our membership. We offer 2 free dinners for each family membership (up to a $35 value). Annual SSCC Membership Fees are due starting January. Be sure to renew at the next event and start saving right away.
The Sierra Sports Car Club offers people of all skill levels a chance to push their cars to the limit in a safe environment. Events are usually held on the first Sunday of each month. Competitors drive as fast as they dare through a course marked by traffic cones. There is a chance to walk the course before the track opens, and it is recommended to walk with an experienced driver to get advice on how to best attack the track. Each month, club members vote on a course design, which is a little different at each event. The goal is to learn quickly, and build on experience.
There are typically two cars on the course at once, separated so there is minimal chance of safety concerns. Each run is timed electronically, and compared with other drivers. Cars run on a handicap system called PAX, which allows different types of cars to achieve a similar score. Emphasis is placed on driving skill and the car’s handling, with horsepower playing a less important role. Cars usually run in second gear, occasionally reaching third gear or requiring a downshift to first for a tight turn. Runs are typically 40-70 seconds each. Events conclude between 2-3:30 PM depending on participation level, which ranges from 18-40 drivers.
The club offers loaner helmets and coaching for people new to the sport. The Sierra Sports Car Club hosts SCCA-sanctioned and insured autocross events under the AZ Border Region SCCA. See AZBRSCCA.org for more information.
