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.
Introduction to Autocross
Rich Velardo has prepared several documents that together are a very through introduction to competing at the autocross held by Akron Sports Car Club (ASCC) at Dragway 42. In addition, there are links to the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) rulebook governing autocross events and details of what cars are in what classes. Please click on the following links to get prepared for autocrossing.
