Sponsored by the Austin Healey Club

Please note that the date has changed and is now Sunday, June 12th

What is an Autocross?
An Autocross is speed event where cars race (so to speak) on a short course that is marked with orange traffic cones on a parking lot. The time is usually around 1 minute, and you are on the course all by your self. The maximum speed is not very high and you will probably not even shift out of second gear. To make things as safe as possible you wear seat belts (if your car came equipped with them) and a helmet (loaners are available). Every car gets at least 3 runs and the shortest time wins.

See the Directions column in the April Driveline for more information.
