2024 AX Novice Day @ Dallesport

Columbia Gorge Regional Airport

About this event

Autocross consists of a single car at a time making runs against the clock on a closed course marked by cones. Each run takes about one minute. Speeds are low to medium, generally below 70 mph and driven in second gear. Time penalties are added for disturbing cones or skipping gates.

At NWAA events, participants are also volunteers. If your group is not driving, then you are required to fill a 'work assignment' while your fellow competitors take their turn in their session. This keeps things running smoothly and fosters a strong sense of camaraderie. Adherence to the work assignment policy is mandatory, and ensures fairness for all.

Autocross 101

This specific event is a day where people that are new to autocross can come out to an autocross course and practice in their own vehicles with instruction from experienced drivers.

  • Registration online only, contact us if you need assistance.
  • Please read the club rules before registering.
  • Events are not typically canceled due to inclement weather (in other words, we run rain or shine!)
  • Event is limited to 30 drivers, sign up early! -- NOTE: As of 4/3, we have reached capacity and are full. Anyone registering going forward will be placed on the waitlist, and we'll keep you updated if slots open up.


Registration for this event includes the understanding and willingness to participate in a known high risk situation due to the current health crisis. NWAA will take all possible precautions, but will not be responsible for any issues that may arise. DO NOT sign up if you are sick or have been in proximity of those who have been sick.
