WHAT IS AUTOCROSS?
Autocross, or "Solo," is a timed contest of driving skill. Speeds and hazards to spectators, participants, and property do not exceed those found in normal, legal highway driving. We think it is much more fun than street driving and you can't get a speeding ticket! Best of all, you can enter in your everyday street car!
All vehicles must pass safety inspection on the following points prior to running:
- Working seat belts.
- Throttle return action, secure battery.
- No oil or antifreeze leaks.
- Adequate clutch (if applicable) & brake pedal.
- Tires must have measurable thread and in good condition.
- Wheel bearings must have no play.
- All loose items, snap-on hubcaps, detachable fender skirts and trim rings must be removed.
