Event Description

Autocross is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe, low-cost competition and active participation. An autocross is a timed competition where drivers navigate one at a time through a temporary course marked by traffic cones, rather than racing on a track with multiple other cars, as in road racing or oval racing. Autocross tends to place more emphasis on car handling and driver skill than on sheer horsepower.The Middle Georgia Sports Car Club of America holds an autocross event at least once a month, and it’s open to any licensed driver. Solo (Autocross) events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver's ability and the car's handling characteristics.  While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered in legal highway driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback creates an adrenaline pumping experience. There is a class for almost any car from family wagons to the most exotic sports cars and everything in between. We’ve seen exotic $40K plus Corvettes and Lotus’ and safe $400 ’71 Toyota station wagons compete. Speeds are slower in absolute terms when compared to other forms of motorsports, but the activity level (measured in discrete turns per minute) can be higher than even Formula One due to the large number of elements packed into each course. Autocross courses are typically 40 to 70 seconds in length. In addition to being a national-level motorsport in its own right, autocrossing is a good way to learn skills that transfer to road racing, as drivers learn vehicle control and club ethics.
