Autocross is a sport of trying to navigate your car through a defined course of pylons usually on a large parking lot, faster than your competition. Autocross courses are set up using soft orange traffic pylons which will not damage your car, but they do melt! Events are run at speeds usually between 40-65 MPH, usually in 2nd gear. Autocross is a "performance driving event" and a safe way to learn how to drive your car at its limit. You not only learn how to handle your car at speeds that you drive daily, but you also: Gain confidence in your driving ability Learn the limits of your car's brakes Learn correct seating, hand, and feet positions Learn the limits of your car's tire adhesion Finally, Autocross is a social gathering of new and old friends and LOTS OF FUN!
