Milton Frank Stadium

About this event

TAC's Autocross Championship Series
  • You are invited to participate in TAC's Autocross Championship Series. Autocross is a timed competition through a road course marked with cones. Your single fastest run is used to determine your position. Your car will be classed with similar cars to keep competition fair and with an emphasis on improving driving skill. If you are not quite ready to drive, you are welcome to stop by and ask for a ride-a-long. We have many expert drivers willing to help you get started. All experience levels welcome.
  • This event is fully operated and insured by TAC.

Run Groups and Course Working
  • Efficiency is a priority at our events, we typically use a "2 Run Group" format and get 6-8 runs.
  • If you participate in this event, you must also complete a work assignment, both in the morning and in the afternoon. We do not allow half days.
  • Skipping your work assignment is not fair to everyone else and causes hardship to event organizers. 
  • If you have a special situation (e.g. injury or physical limitation) which would prevent you from working, let us know on the registration form, look for "Special Requests". Alabama football does not qualify as a special situation.
     
Membership
Championship Series Points
  • The Autocross Championship Series will determine the most consistently outstanding drivers for the year for each Class, Top 10 PAX, and Top 10 RAW. 
  • To win a class championship you:
  1. Must be a TAC member.
  2. Must compete in more than half of the points events (6 or more for 2024).
  3. Earn the highest number of points per section 6 of the TAC Autocross Rules.
     
New Drivers (Novices) and the Herb Aderholdt Novice Championship
  • New drivers are welcome! The optional Novice (N) class is intended for first-year autocrossers. If you have participated in 5 or less events prior to January 2024, you're eligible to run Novice Class all year. At each event, we provide a Novice Walk-thru where a veteran autocrosser will go over the basics. Entering the Novice class is not a restriction; however it will allow you to get extra help if desired. To enter, select the "Novice" class during registration.
     
  • Novice class drivers will be able to qualify for our year-end Novice Championship event. The Novice Championship winner will receive a free Season Pass for the following season. Details about how to win will be posted here: https://teamtac.org/e107/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?131829.post (will be updated for 2024 mid-season)

Sound Policy
  • We have a strict sound policy, due to our residential location and agreement with the Milton Frank Stadium owners. Your car must not be louder than 96 dB without exception. Sound will be monitored approximately 50 feet from the course. The type of exhaust (stock vs aftermarket) is not restricted, but it must not exceed 96 dB. If your car exceeds 96 dB on a run, you will be notified, the run will be scored as a DNF, and not allowed to run again. If you show that a modification has been made to reduce noise (driving at half throttle does not count), then you will be allowed to run again. If your car exceeds the limit a second time, you will not be allowed to run for the rest of the day. We want EVERYONE to have a great day autocrossing, please make this easy by fixing your car before the event!
     
Helmets
Classing and "Being Legal"
Scooters (and similar)

  • Scooters should not be "Ridden" anywhere considered to be "Hot areas" (e.g. any place helmeted drivers are driving).
  • Early course setup workers and event organizers may drive scooters on course, but only for purposes outside of course walking.
  • This policy is subject to change.
