2What is Autocross?

Definition of Autocross from Wikipedia:

Autocross is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe competition and active participation. An autocross is a competition in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined coned course on either a sealed or an unsealed surface. Autocross differs from road racing and oval racing in that generally there is only one car on the course, racing against the clock rather than other cars. As an entry-level motorsport it provides a steppingstone for drivers looking to move into other more competitive and possibly expensive forms of racing (such as rallying and circuit racing).

Autocross courses are typically up to one to two kilometres long and tend to place demands on car handling and driver skill rather than on engine power and outright speed. Courses may be temporary and marked by traffic cones or be permanent with approval by a motorsport body.

Events typically have many classes that allow almost any vehicle, from economy sedans to purpose-built racing cars, to compete. Due to the nature of a typical track, speeds can be slower when compared to other forms of motorsports, usually not exceeding highway speeds, 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. Read the full description.

Any questions or concerns about acceptable types of documents should be forwarded to our reservations department at 888-314-6965 or email info@circuit1events.com Your participation does not constitute as "car rentals", and these are not “rental vehicles”.
