About this event
Pitt Race Low-key Autocross
These Autocrosses are low-pressure events for novice drivers, those not ready to go against the clock competitively or for those tuning their vehicles for an SCCA event. This provides a fun atmosphere for all levels of drivers. These events are timed, but there are no awards, classes, or podiums. It’s you against yourself! Lowkey Autocross provides a cone course on our vehicle dynamics area / skid pad. These events will put your car control skills to the test, as well as your car set up but without the competitive pressure. Low-key Autocross’s are open to both fully prepared and stock configuration vehicles. Vehicles with a high center of gravity and narrow track including most SUV's, Cross-Overs, Mini Vans and 4WD pickup trucks are NOT eligible. Karts and Formula style cars are not eligible.
Pre-registration is required via motorsportreg.com. These events are typically sold-out and walk-up registration may not be available. The cost is $40 per driver.
Participants will be issued a wristband and assigned to a run group. The number of runs per event will vary depending on registration numbers, mechanical issue, incidents and weather. Pitt Race reserves the right to limit the number of entries for these events.
