Autocross 101 @ PIR (South Paddock)

Portland Int'l Raceway

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.

Autocross 101

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