First step is to check out the Downloads section on this website.
- Up at the top of this page, next to the club logo, mouse over the "Home" link and select "Upload / Download Files". On the second page of Public Files, download the "2012 SCCA Solo Rules" and the "2012 Classing - Easy" docs (latter is available in both Excel & PDF).
- Scan the Easy doc first, and look up your mods to find which category your car should be in.
- Then open the SCCA rules doc, and skip ahead to the section on your category. Find your car in that section to get your class.
If you get a clear answer from all that, then great! You're done.
But it's not always that simple, and we're happy to help.
The "Novice" classification is separate from your car class, and it means you're just starting out in autocrossing. Generally you can stay in novice for 5-6 events, or until you start winning - whichever comes first!
