An Introduction to Autocross
By Jason Helferich
Autocross is a form of racing that not many people outside the sport know about. This overlooked motorsport is quickly gaining popularity because of its unique blend of competition and affordability. Autocross events are time trial competitions in which there is no wheel-to-wheel racing involved, meaning that there is only one car on the track at a time. Competing vehicles are not racing against each other on the track; therefore, each driver races the course against the clock, not against other cars on the track. The winners are determined by the vehicles that complete the course with the quickest time.
