About this event
Delta Autocross events generally begin around 10 am on the day of the event and occur rain or shine (apocalyptic weather excepted).
Event fees go towards covering site rental, sanctions and insurance, free water, chalk, cones, and club operations.
All Delta events are open to all drivers with an appropriate vehicle and drivers license/permit as well as to any spectators and riders over 12 years of age. Additionally, Delta autocrossers are exceptionally friendly folks, and we love it when new people come out to race with us. Except for the guy in the trailer behind the computer. He is a jerk, and he neither knows nor cares about your time.
Delta provides loaner helmets to drivers who need them.
All events take place at NOLA Motorsports Park’s. For all events we use an advanced timing system and Axware Autocross management software.
Q: What kind of car do I need?
A: Any road worthy car or purpose built race car is fine, as long as it can pass a basic inspection (think brake tag). Check the Solo Rulebook for details. There are specific exceptions: no high center of gravity vehicles (4×4 trucks, SUVs, minivans, and specific cars), karts, or vehicles that provide no driver protection are currently allowed at most Delta events. If you have any question, please ask us before hand!
Q: What class is my car in?
A: Have a look at the Solo Rulebook, or ask us on Facebook and we’ll figure it out for you.
Q: Will it break my car?
A: Probably not. The general rule is that if it breaks on course, it would have probably broken on the street. Probably better that breaks on a closed course than on the interstate.
Generally, autocross is not harder on your car than typical day-to-day normal-to-spirited driving. You’re probably good if you take care of the usual maintenance items. One exception is tires: autocross (like any other motorsport) eats tires, and these, very likely, will be the largest single budget item for the autocrosser.
Q: Is it expensive?
A: The events are cheap, but otherwise how much you spend on the sport is up to you. You can race a car on 800 treadwear tires for years without spending money except on maintenance or you could build a C-Street Prepared Miata, which costs roughly the same amount as it does to send a man to the Moon.
Q: Don’t I need 6-way adjustable shocks, 14″ wide tires, carbon-fiber windscreens, etc., et al . . .
A: No! Learn to drive first, then mod. As a new driver, spend the money on a helmet and a decent set of tires. You will spend your first couple of seasons learning to drive and becoming one with your car. At that point, you can mod as you see fit
