An Autosolo is a non-specialist, skill-based competition enjoyable for both novices and experienced competitors. Primarily about car control, it involves a series of short-timed, all-forward courses run on a hard surface; in which the driver must complete a course as smoothly and quickly as possible. While this may seem complicated, the course isn’t a test of memory. The routes are clearly marked out and the “gates” are numbered. This leaves you, the driver, to concentrate on achieving your best time. However, if the wrong route is driven or any markers are hit or “gates” missed out then penalties will be added to your final score total. You enter at your own risk.
What Kind of car can i use?
This is the real beauty of an Autosolo. Any road legal car can be used. As the cars have to be driven to the event, cars must be taxed, insured and have an MOT certificate. Therefore you can compete in your car on the Sunday and still drive to work in it on the Monday. As the emphasis is on car control rather than outright speed, you’d have to be doing something silly to damage the car substantially.
If you’ve watched any Autosolo before, competitors have favoured smaller hatchbacks, but even larger cars will be able to negotiate the course.
Almost anyone can enter an Autosolo. You don’t even need a road traffic license. Events are generally open to all drivers aged 16 and over. However, for drivers that are under-17 there are certain restrictions: an adult must accompany the driver; the car must have four seats and the engine must not exceed 1600cc or have a turbo or supercharger.
