What is autocross?

Autocross is a timed motorsports event in which drivers navigate one at a time through a course (usually) laid out with traffic cones in an open space, like a parking lot, racetrack paddock, or an unused airport runway. As with other forms of motorsport, there are different competition classes defined based upon the year, type, and any modifications of the cars. Typically, events also include a “Fun” class for those coming out just to enjoy the experience. Every run is timed electronically, and a time penalty is added for each cone knocked over or displaced along the course. You can measure your progress throughout the day, and possibly earn bragging rights. We emphasize safety, fun and speed. This is probably the safest and least expensive way to drive your Porsche at the limit.

Autocross is a great way to:
  • Learn how to handle your Porsche
  • Drive your Porsche the way it was meant to be driven
  • Make new friends
  • See “old” friends
  • Spend time with your significant other doing something fun
Safety protocols in place for our Autocross 2020 season:
  • Events limited to 50 participants
  • Masks are mandatory when outside your vehicle
  • Social distancing of 6-feet required
  • Only one person per vehicle
  • Instructors not permitted (unless they live in the same household as the driver)
  • No minors permitted
  • No morning-only drivers permitted, all-day commitment is required
  • Prior autocross driving experience required due to no instruction allowed
