I just purchased my Bullit a month ago. I've been very interested in Soloing for a couple years now - after getting to "ride" with a friend of mine in a modified Chevy. However, as a COMPLETE novice to any "real" competition driving (and really NOT very good at anything requiring coordination!) I'm concerned about the possibility of my car looking like that GT that rolled awhile back! .... I know this sounds kinda wimpy! --- but --- at my age I don't heal very fast anymore! Just how badly do I have to screw up to roll my car??

You'd have to mess up really badly or mess up in a really bad spot.

I've been autoxing and participating in on-track driving events for a while. The worst bangups I have seen were caused by (1) poor course layout and (2) the driver's were numbnuts.

Unless you are a numbnut- go enjoy.

Tom:

Solo II has a max speed allowed and most course designers will design a ways below that. Unless you really drive recklessly, it's not likely you will do much more than kill a few cones.

Autocross is a great venue to develop your driving skills in, and with remote possibility of damaging anything. You can learn your car's and your limits.

Give it a try. You will enjoy it!

I want to start solo IIing (is that a word?) next season. I was going to go to the last event of the season in Milwaukee last month but a family emergency came up. I've never raced either but it looks like such fun and relatively safe.

This is a note for those who run a Densecharger. SCCA rules used to say if you don't use the stock airbox, you should be bumped up to F Street Prepared, Not F Stock.
Same rules apply for different size tires, chip, etc.

You can enter F Stock, but you'll be cheating. And seeing as how they let the Bullitt compete in the same class with regular GT's, it's REALLY not fair.

Personally, I wouldn't cheat. However I will compete in the novice class since I am a novice.
