2023 Fresno SCCA Autocross School

Fresno Fairgrounds

About this event

 

Performance Driving School limited to 35 students. All entries received beyond the first 35 will be automatically added to the waitlist. Waitlisted drivers will be added to the entry list in the order that they registered if drivers on the entry list cancel their entry. 

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! 

This school will introduce you to Solo driving, teach you some valuable driving skills, and give you a chance to try them out in a controlled, safe environment. There will be instruction from experienced drivers and coaches. Then take the knowledge you gained on Saturday, and put it to the test Sunday in competition! Event 1 entry will be included when you register for the Driving School and will happen automatically. You will not need to register separately for event 1.
