About this event
While old man winter is bearing down on the Midwest, there is no reason for anyone to suffer from cabin fever. The Winter Autocross Series was created for enthusiasts to enjoy the performance characteristics of their car to the fullest. From the novice driver to the experienced autocrosser, the Winter Autocross Series has a little something for everyone. This off-street, closed-course environment is the perfect place to hone those winter driving skills with a variety of challenges that include; speed stop challenge, short autocross, and long autocross. We can't always promise snow and ice, but we can promise the weather and course conditions to be both unpredictable and challenging for any driver and machine.
- The series is made up of three event dates that are spread out over the Winter. Participants are split into three classes of competition; front-wheel drive (FWD), rear-wheel drive (RWD), and all-wheel drive (AWD). After each event points are awarded based on the finishing position within the class. Points are accumulated after each of the three-event dates with an awards presentation taking place immediately following the last event of the series.
