Put yourself and your car to the test as our instructors offer friendly advice on how to improve your lines and your time around our customized autocross track.

We hope to see you at this exhilarating event that will help raise the level of your driving skills and your heartbeat! Remember all levels of drivers are welcomed to join us! Two drivers per car can be accommodated.

Also, we’d like to welcome everyone to take a look at our 2014 schedule if you have not seen it yet! Our calendar lists many popular motor-sport events within our area, including divisional/national level autocross, rallycross, time attack, drift, and hill climb events. Our first local autocross will be on March 29th!

Here’s our first 2014 flyer, featuring the full schedule. Hopefully we will have a few printed out at the meeting. If we can distribute some of them around to local auto businesses or car meets, it would help greatly.
