AUTOCROSS INFORMATION

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Autocross is driving as fast as you can in a safe and controlled environment.  The course is temporary (often in a parking lot) and tight (using cones to mark the exact course)  and emphasizes handling over raw speed – thus runs are relatively low speed.  There are more events this year and a second location for some events which may be more convenient for some members.  So come on out and join us.

2021 Autocross Schedule:

Akron Sports Car Club Autocross
The autocross events sponsored by Akron Sports Car Club (ASCC) are held at Dragway 42 in West Salem, OH (click for directions) and at the Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH (SMP in list below) (click for directions).   This schedule and the Competition Calendar will be updated as changes or additional information becomes available.  Please check the following for current updates on schedule and times:    ASCC Facebook page/ or the ASCC Facebook Group ForumDue to the coronavirus restrictions, these Events are subject to change or cancelation – so you MUST check for schedule updates.

Generally Tech inspection and registration open at 8AM.   Note that again this year you cannot use tape for your car number and class.   On-line Registration is available at https://www.motorsportreg.com/ (you will need to set up an account with MotorSports Reg).
Scheduling proved difficult due to SMP not opening, the COVID-19 restrictions and the weather.  The original schedule was for 10 points events but only 7 could be scheduled with the last 2 a double header.
