Have a road car? Want to have some fun in it with the safety of a closed off area? Want to find the limits of the car and your ability? Or just a good day's motorsport trying to get one over on your mate in a similar car?

AutoSOLO could be the event for you! What is it all about?

AutoSolo is a Grass Roots form of Motorsport, consisting of a series of tests that are run in a forward direction only, with no navigator/passengers allowed as course markers are numbered. Combine this with being able to walk the simple course prior to competing and HAVING FUN suddenly becomes very easy! In essence, a Road legal car and a club membership is all you need to compete. Waht's stopping you?

Welcome to the SHMC’s 5th running of the South Hams SOLO - An AutoSOLO run in conjunction with the club’s Test Day at Smeatharpe Airfield, we again are the first round of the ASWMC AutoSOLO championship. 4 courses are on offer, with three runs on each, and the requirement for competitors to join in the rotation of marshals, means a slick, action-packed, competition-filled day is on offer.

In 2015 a standard road car with only a handful of tweaks beat the 27 car entry to the win, proving you don’t need a specialist car to do well.

Please note due to planning restrictions on the venue, noise levels are monitored closely – to comply with these restrictions please ensure that noise is kept to an absolute minimum pre 0900 and after 1600. Please arrive/depart the venue in a quiet, controlled and respectful manner. Anyone not doing this may be excluded from the event without refund.

South Hams Motor Club have taken the opportunity to continue their offer for cars that are double driven - if you were to enter two drivers for the same car and share the entry costs between the two drivers it would work out at £20 each!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch – my details are in the regs. I look forward to receiving your entry.

Tim Owen - Clerk of the Course
