What is an AutoSOLO?

A great entry into motorsport, an AutoSOLO is a test of your precision and car control, with slalom sections and longer turns. Courses are on a sealed surface (closed car parks, for example), marked out by plastic cones or pylons, often numbered to help with navigation.

The aim is to complete the course in the correct direction, as quickly and accurately as possible. If you hit a marker, you incur a time penalty, and driving in the wrong direction results in a ‘fail’.

Completed mostly in first and second gear, the risk to your road car is negligible.  

You can have multiple competitors taking it in turns with the same car – but be warned, like Formula One, your closest competitor will be your teammate. Some organisers also allow passengers in the vehicles.

How to take part in an AutoSOLO

There are a number of clubs across the UK organising regular AutoSOLO events, as an accessible entry to the world of motorsport. Events are run by local volunteers, with rules and regulations determined by Motorsport UK, the governing body, to provide safe, fair and fun competition.

To find a club or an event near you, or to volunteer to support your local AutoSOLOs, register here and a member of our team will be in touch to match you with a StreetCar-accredited club.


For an AutoSOLO, no special equipment or training is needed. Any standard car that is taxed and has a valid MOT is eligible for these competitions – two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, a small hatchback, or even an estate car. It doesn’t matter what you drive, it matters how precisely you drive it!

You do not need a driving licence, provided someone else is driving the car to and from the event.

You will need:

  • A Club membership
  • Any car with a valid MOT, taxed and insured for road use
  • Your entry fee
  • An RS Clubman licence from Motorsport UK
  • Optional: A pump or compressor, along with an accurate tyre gauge
