From Porsche Club of America: Autocross is a sport of trying to navigate your car through a defined course of pylons usually on a large parking lot, faster than your competition. Autocross courses are set up using soft orange traffic pylons which will not damage your car, but they do melt! Events will allow faster speeds than previous events, have fun! Autocross is a "performance driving event" and a safe way to learn how to drive your car at its limit. You not only learn how to handle your car at speeds that you drive daily, but you also:
· Gain confidence in your driving ability
· Learn the limits of your car's brakes
· Learn correct seating, hand, and foot positions
· Learn the limits of your car's tire adhesion
· Finally, autocross is a social gathering of new and old friends and LOTS OF FUN!
We will be using the Reese Technology Center Airfield for our events this year (2019). Your car MUST be in the tech line by 7:45 AM in order to participate. Preregistration and payment is recommended, as we will limit the field to the first 50 drivers. Each driver will be placed in a colored run group according to experience and speed, all first time drivers are in the blue run group. Green group drivers have limited experience, Yellow drivers have at least one season or have placed in the top five at one of our past events, and red are very experienced drivers and instructors. There will be some balancing to ensure all groups are approximately equally sized. Every run group will get one practice sessions of 5 laps and one timed session of 5 laps. Your fastest lap during timed sessions will be used to determine your final finishing position. After the first Autocross, based on event circumstances we may offer charity laps where drivers can donate to a designated cause to run additional laps. We reserve the right to change the format as necessary.
