Sports Car Club of America

Solo Points Event 8 & 9

  For further informtaion go to:  Sports Car Club of America

Solo (also called Autocross or Slalom) is a timed competition of driving skill, the entry point of motorsports

Speeds and hazards to spectators, participants, and property do not exceed those found in normal, legal highway driving. It's a lot more fun than street driving and you can't get a speeding ticket! Best of all, you can enter in your everyday street car!

Reno SCCA hosts a full season-long Solo championship for those that wish to compete for a championship trophy. However, events are always open to casual competitors. We even have a novice program that takes the confusion out of car classing and rules.

Solo events are generally held in a wide-open paved area. Reno SCCA holds most of its events on a tarmac at Stead Airport. The event consists of individual timed runs through a course made of traffic cones. The fastest time wins, and cars are grouped into classes based on capability.

Stead Airport Association

Board Meeting

5:15pm For more information fo to: Stead Users

The Reno-Stead Airport, formerly Reno Army Air Base and then Stead Air Force Base was turned over to the city of Reno in 1966 and is now operated by the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority . It is the premier general aviation airport in Northern Nevada and is a reliever airport for Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

The Reno-Stead Airport Association (RSAA) was formed in 1996 by business owners and tenants on the Reno-Stead Airport who felt that a legal entity would be the best solution to insuring airport user input to development and use plans for Reno-Stead.

RSAA’s mission is to insure that all Tenants have the opportunity to speak in a united voice to the Reno Tahoe Airport Authority (owner of the airfield facility), the Federal Aviation Administration and the Local Governments relative to safe and affordable flying in Northern Nevada, while also enriching and promoting the reputation of General Aviation within our community.

Reno Air Races

 
  For more information got to:  Reno Air Races

 

The National Championship Air Races is the last event of its kind, carrying on the tradition of the Cleveland Air Races of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. In 1964, Bill Stead organized an air race near Reno, Nevada, and the Reno National Championship Air Races were born. The event that Bill Stead started in the Nevada desert more than 53 years ago is still going strong. The event has only been cancelled once in September of 2001 when all aircraft in the United States were grounded following the terrorists attacks in New York and Washington.
