AUTOCROSS OPEN PRACTICE
Registration opens July 1
If you’re looking to hone your advanced autocross skills or if you want to dial in your car, then join us for a morning of autocross practice. Make sure you have a full tank of gas and plenty of tire tread, because we’ll get a lot of laps in. We will have a few advanced autocross instructors available to help. Points and trophies will not be awarded as this is not a competitive event. Sign up for this event and the Sunday Run Autocross on August 27 for a discount!
This event caters to advanced drivers. If you’re new to performance driving, check out our Car Control Clinic, also scheduled for August 26.
