Trillium AutoSlalom 2022
Autoslalom provides a great way for both beginners and experts to have fun, develop their driving skills and learn more about their car. Bring your car and compete or just have fun driving around an expertly setup course. Each event features a custom layout designed to maximize fun and challenge your navigational and car control skills.
The safety of our participants and volunteers is paramount. We have created an operational framework that will allow us to run Autoslalom events. All participants and volunteers are required to read and follow the operating rules posted at this link. Waivers must be completed prior to the event. Click here to download the Autoslalom Waiver.
The 2020 season will continue with the scoring system based on SCCA’s SOLO model, using the PAX / RTP weighting system. Essentially, this system aims to equalize performance differences between cars due to power, weight, and modifications. It attempts to make the competition more about the driver than the car. You’re competing on a fairly level playing field with all the other participants. Download the SCCA-SOLO rules here: https://www.scca.com/pages/solo-cars-and-rules
Location: CAA Centre, Brampton (click for details on location and directions).
