Cal Club Autocross is pleased to announce the 2018 Autocross School to be held on Saturday, November 24, 2018 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. There will be an open practice the following day on Sunday, November 25—included for free to all attendees of the school. While preference to the Sunday practice will be given to those attending both days, we expect to have plenty of Sunday ONLY spots for those looking for just one day of fun. Students are encouraged to attend both days to maximize the learning experience. 

The purpose of the school is to introduce club members and members of the general public to proper techniques of autocross and car handling. Everyone with a desire to improve their driving skills is welcome. That includes beginners through intermediates looking to improve on their autocross skills, and to those outside the sport who would like to improve their basic car handling skills. 

Solo, or autocross, is a low speed, timed, handling event set up as a small road course lined with orange traffic cones on a large parking lot or aircraft taxi way. The emphasis is on handling and car control and the courses are laid out so that the top speed is limited to what would be encountered during normal driving. Learn more about Cal Club Autocross at solo2.com.

Participant safety is our number one priority. SCCA Solo Safety Stewards approve the course and are present the whole day. Our main goal is that the students have fun and build confidence as they learn:

  • The basics of analyzing the course during the course walk
  • Basic car handling techniques and driving skills
  • Competitive driving strategies

Students will be paired with an instructor, based on car type and skill level. Saturday will include a “chalk-talk” in the morning to familiarize all participants in the basics of autocross, course element identification, and driving technique. 

Instructors will be available during all of Sunday’s run groups at the open practice. We expect all Sunday drivers to get approximately 12 runs each during the day.
