Last Call for entries for the Silverstone AutoSolo
The event will take place in the dedicated AutoSolo arena situated in the Outer Paddock during the Saturday morning, finishing in time to allow participants a free afternoon to watch the race action on the circuit – the entry fee includes a weekend admission ticket.
Introduced to the VSCC in 2014, the AutoSolo discipline was originally devised to encourage youngsters in modern hatchbacks to have a go at motorsport and involves a number of ‘all forward’ Autotests on a sealed surface using numbered markers. The tests are more straight-forward than traditional Driving Tests and, as there is no reversing, have been proven to be very popular with the older driver in an older car too.
The experienced Martin Jelley and his team take the reins at Silverstone once more, and are sure to offer another great opportunity for Club Members to enjoy throwing their car around with less strain on the back axle and creaking necks.
The event is open to road-going Pre-1941 Cars (must run with wings/lights) with the Entry sub-divided into two classes for Short and Long Wheelbase.
Entry Fee: £25.00 (including a weekend admission ticket for the Silverstone Formula Vintage)
Closing Date for Entries: Wednesday 12 April (Midnight)
Note that those drivers and/or cars entered for the Race Meeting will not be able to enter as you cannot compete on more than one MSA Permit on a single day.
