About this event
- Excited to get back on an autocross course, but have some winter rust that you need to knock off?
- Relatively New to AutoX?
- Not progressing within the sport as much as you would like?
If you answered yes to one or more of those questions, we have the perfect event for you.
Region 105 will be hosting a 2-day instructional event in beautiful Helena MT the weekend of April 9th & 10th.
We will start Saturday with an informal classroom session, going over how the day will run, AutoX basics, and introductions. After the classroom, we start our right-seat instruction. We will focus on one typical autocross element at a time, giving you time to focus on improvement on each typical element, not chasing a time.
Instructors will ride with drivers most of the day Saturday, & as much of Sunday as drivers wish. When they're not riding, they will be watching and giving pointers when you complete the run.
Sunday will be timed competition-style runs. Starting the day with a guided course walk followed by runs.
Things required for the weekend:
- A well-rested version of you
- A maintained car
- Eagerness to learn and improve
Plan to attend, & encourage fellow racers to attend.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
The cost will be $100 for members ($120 for non-SCCA members) for the weekend, or $65 for members ($75 for non-SCCA members) for a single day. Money well

Planning on staying on-site?
We are fortunate to use this facility for our sport. Please help us continue to have an excellent relationship with the facility and track management by keeping their rules in mind:
Please do not enter the runway or road course areas of the track until a Region 105 official allows entry.
We can park trailers and campers in the gravel parking area as well as the adjoining area to the west of the administration building parking lot.
We CANNOT park or camp east of the administration building, and never in the gravel area circling the fire training planes or by the white fire station building.
We also CANNOT park for an extended time in the parking lot for the two-story administration building.
The facility does not allow any hook-ups to facility electrical or water service.
When parking trailers, campers, or motor homes, please conserve space.
Tents are allowed in the grass area between the two pads but DO NOT use tent stakes. There has been damage to the sprinkler lines in the past from the stakes. Please bring something heavy to hold down your tent so that the wind cannot lift it and blow it onto the track. Tents must be removed from the grass by 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
