Autocross

Autocross is a low speed event held on an open paved lot. The intent is to familiarize drivers with their limits and the limits of their cars. The course is laid out using highway cones in a road course fashion. Runs are timed. Safety is a primary concern.

The typical event day starts out with registration and a tech inspection. At registration, the cars are classified so that similar performance cars compete against each other. The tech inspection is to confirm the safety of the car. Items checked include fluid levels, brakes, wheel bearings, steering and tires. Ultimately, the mechanical condition of your car is your responsibility. Do you really want to be heading into a corner with those squeaky 2 year old brake pads?
