The revised requirements for those working towardparticipation in the 2020 TireRack SCCA ProSolo Finaletaking place Sept. 4-6 in Lincoln,Neb., have been announced.
Because of event inequitybrought about by disruptionscaused by the coronaviruspandemic resulting in animbalance of ProSolo eventsaccessible to competitors,points will not be awarded in
2020 to ProSolo participants.
All 2020 ProSolo events are
now considered “standalone,”
meaning the ProSolo Finale will
be an electrifying, tense, winner-
take-all championship mimicking
the Tire Rack Solo National
Championships and SCCA
National Championship Runoffs.
With the eliminationof points, ProSolo Finaleeligibility and registrationquestions emerge, andorganizers appreciate thereis no “perfect” solution underthese conditions. With that inmind, ProSolo Finale entries willagain be conducted in a three-tiered manner. Tier 1, openingWednesday, Aug. 19, will befor 2020 Super Challenge andLadies Challenge winners, aswell as 2020 class winners.
Tier 2, opening Wednesday,Aug. 26, can be accessed bythose running a 2020 ProSoloevent and the 2019 ProSoloChallenge winners, as well as thetop-three 2019 JCJ Cup andFletcher Cup finishers. Tier 3,opening Monday, Aug. 31, will beopen to anyone who participatedin a 2019 ProSolo event.
Starting with Tier 2,online sign-up will be a“first registered, firstentered” endeavor untilthe event cap is reached.
It should also be noted thatregistration is expected toreturn to normal in 2021.
Racing Tire SCCA Super Tourweekends and finish in at leastone race. Up to two of theseweekend participations may bereplaced with any combinationof Regional race weekends orsubstituted with paid entries forany of the remaining 2020 U.S.
Majors Tour events not attended.
SCCA is rapidly constructingan online option for “substitute”registrations where driverscan submit entries and logRunoffs qualification creditsfor events “missed” due tocoronavirus. The substituteentry process will be separatefrom normal registration forthat event, with details beingreleased at a later date. Anaction outside SCCA’s normaloperating procedure, Prill notesthis is being conducted to offsetlost revenue for Regions.
“Club members areexperiencing financial hardshipthis year, as are their localRegions,” Prill says. “A familyunited by the passion forracing, we all want to seepeople out doing what we love.
This pandemic has impacted
everyone, but we want to
make sure Club members
can get to the Runoffs while
ensuring the health of Regions
for a long time to come.”
Updated Runoffs qualifying
conditions for 2020 eliminates
the need for a specific Pro
Racing path to the Runoffs
as the new formula serves
both interests. The Divisional
and Defending Champion
paths to a Runoffs invitation
remain unchanged. It should
be noted that endurance races
remain excluded as counting
toward Runoffs qualification
and plans for deployment of
the new Runoffs Appearance
Fund remain in place.
