The Hawaii Region of the Sports Car Club of America announced six major races on Oahu and Maui in 2005.

The first Solo II race will take place tomorrow at Hawaii Raceway Park. About 70-90 cars will compete, from stock vehicles to race cars, in the amateur event. Each driver is given four runs through the sports-car course, and the driver with the fastest time in the class wins the class.

Points are kept throughout the year and determine prizes and trophies presented at the end of the year. Drivers must participate in more than half of the year's races to be in the running for points and run-off championship.
