SCCA Solo II® Nationals put on hold due to security risk

TOPEKA, Kan. (September 11, 2001)* The Sports Car Club of America has announced that the Solo II® Nationals held at Forbes Field in Topeka, Kan., has been temporarily halted, in lieu of the national security risk that started with the apparent terrorist act on the World Trade Center this morning in New York City.

"For issues of National Security and the safety of our SCCA members participating at the Solo II Nationals, we have no other option but to stop the event," said Steve Johnson, President and CEO of the SCCA. "We are temporarily planning to restart the event Thursday morning, September 13. Until then, there will be no activity with regard to the Solo II Nationals."

The Solo II Nationals are the annual National Championships for Solo II racing, drawing over 1,200 competitors from across North America. All competitors and vehicles have been evacuated from Forbes Field, the airport facility that promotes and houses the event. The event officially started this morning, and was put on hold around lunchtime.
