About this event

Event Announcement

Hawaii Rally Sport Association (HRSA) and National Auto Sport Association (NASA) Hawaii Region are happy to announce the Auto-X with HRSA-NASA Hawaii Region event on Saturday, September 21, 2024. The Auto-X will be held at the Aloha Stadium Lower Lot, Honolulu, Hawaii.


NASA Auto-X is low speed car control competition and is the most readily accessible form of asphalt motorsport in the National Auto Sport Association's many motorsport offerings. It's the perfect place to see if you have what it takes to power and control your way to victory. Imagine a scaled down version of a road course laid out on a paved parking lot where the course is delineated by traffic cones. Vehicles are released on course, one at a time, to maintain safe vehicle distancing. Best of all, it's great fun!


The Auto-X will have a VIP ALL DAY run group, a lunch time worker/volunteer run group and an afternoon (PM) worker run group. The event is by invitation only. Only sign up for the Run Group for which you are invited.


We intentionally keep participation numbers low in order to provide our invitees with lots of seat time. All participants, pit crew and spectators (when allowed) must be pre-approved and on the approved entry roster at the gate to be allowed on site.


The event organizers have over a decade of experience hosting-insuring-sanctioning motorsports events in Hawaii. In fact, some of the group's members are responsible for bringing the first NASA events to the islands. They also started RallyCross events in Hawaii over 14 years ago. Our members have also assisted JN Exotics with their Track Day Events and served as Safety Stewards and participants at multiple Autocross and Rallycross type events throughout the State of Hawaii.


SPECIAL NOTE: There is a maximum pre-registration requirement of 15 Drivers for each Run Group for this event. Registrations beyond 15 drivers will be placed on a waitlist without any guarantee of participation. The registrant will be notified ASAP of any available racing slots. The AM and PM Run Groups will be separated by a Lunch Session. During that Lunch Session the HRSA-NASA Hawaii volunteers will be on course.


This autocross event is sanctioned by the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) and participation is by invitation only. State of Hawaii and City and County of Honolulu Covid-19 restrictions and requirements will be practiced. Current facemask and social distancing guidelines will be followed. Due to the restrictions, only participants and their pit crew-guests are allowed to be on-site.


Hawaii Rally Sport Association (HRSA) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit group who host, promote and support Hawaii based Motorsports and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education Programs in the State of Hawaii. Proceeds from the events we host-insure-sanction will go to charity. Our current charity beneficiary is Make-A-Wish Hawaii.


HRSA is very fortunate to have partial sponsorship for the 2024 season from these generous companies: Circuit Hawaii, Inc.
