About our club
We are a group of guys and gals with a die-hard enthusiasm for cars and driving. We put together events at conveniently located Nassau Coliseum's parking lot to allow fellow enthusiasts the chance to drive all-out in a sport known as autocross- also known as Solo. Below you can see who some of the key people at our events. Feel free to ask any of them for help

When does hitting a cone result in a penalty
This is from page 55 of the 2015 SCCA Solo Rule Book
7.9.1 Course Markers (Pylons)
A clearly visible line around the base will mark the location of each pylon. The inner edge of the line will be used to describe the outer edge of the pylon base as accurately as possible. If the pylon is upset or totally displaced outside the line, two seconds will be assessed. At Regional events, local methods for locating pylons may be used. The diagram provided herein should help clarify situations in which penalties should and should not be assessed.
7.9.2 Displaced or Downed Pylons on Course
A competitor encountering a downed or displaced pylon on course has the option of continuing the run or stopping as soon as possible, and pointing out the downed or displaced pylon to a course worker. If the competitor stops, he/she must proceed per Section 7.4 and will then be granted a rerun. However, if the competitor completes the run, the time will stand. In the case in which a competitor is red flagged or stops for a downed or displaced cone on the course, the competitor may continue slowly through the remainder of the course, or may exit the course directly, and will be granted a rerun if appropriate. Failure to exit the remainder of the course at an appropriate speed (generally 25-30 mph) will result in a DNF for that run. It is important to clear the course in a timely manner to ensure the event remains on schedule.
Reruns for displaced or downed cones after the timing finish line will only be given at the discretion of the Chief Steward.
