AUTOCROSS OPEN PRACTICE -- May 11 -- SDCCU West Lot
Register will be online at MSR; check back for the registration link.
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. Our timing system will be running, but times will not be recorded and trophies will not be awarded as this is not a competitive event.
Note that lunch will not be served as this is a half-day event.
This event caters to advanced drivers. If you’re new to performance driving, check out our Car Control Clinic, also scheduled for May 11.
