Autocross: The concept is simple – use traffic cones to make a road course in a large parking lot, an airport runway, or even better, at Summit Point Motorsport Park. The objective is to drive the course in the shortest amount of time without hitting any cones or going off course. Despite the relatively low overall speeds attained during competition, it’s one of the most intense, rapid-fire forms of motorsport you can enter. All you need is your car, a driver’s license, and a helmet. The entry fee is $55.
Cost: $55 per event, must register by 8 pm the Wednesday before the Saturday event.
NOTE: No in-person or walk-up registrations are accepted
You must have a driver's license or a permit to drive.
Cars can be trailered and dedicated track cars are welcome.
Highly recommended: Packing lunch and drinks for the day!
Bring your helmet (motorcycle helmets are acceptable).
Passengers are allowed if they wear helmets and safety belts.
Please clean out your car and be prepared for tech inspection (good battery hold down, no loose items in the cabin of the car, secure camera tech in the car if using, no junk in the trunk).

Participant welcome reception opens at 8:00 a.m. Plan to arrive early enough to sign the event participation form, fill out your timing slip, prepare your car, and have it checked by our tech team. For various reasons, safety being paramount, all drivers must be present for the Drivers' Meeting in order to participate that day. Drivers' Meetings will be held at approximately 9:15 a.m. on the day of the event with car tech beginning at 8:00 a.m.
Drivers' Meeting: Attendance is mandatory. Important safety information is covered at the Drivers' Meeting, which may be specific to that day’s event or the course setup. For that reason, it is essential that ALL drivers are in attendance. We understand there are various justifiable reasons for late arrival but, regardless of the reason, EVERYONE must attend the Drivers' Meeting or they will not drive.
