Learn to Autocross Event on January 12 – Training in the Basics

Our first event of the autocross season on January 12 will not be an autocross.  Since we have many new and novice autocrossers the Autocross Team felt it was time to have an ‘on course, in your car, with instructor’, training session.  It will be a low stress, untimed event with specific training stations designed to teach all that is needed to get you started on a fun, successful autocross season! This is offered to new and novice autocross drivers only and there will be no charge for this event!  Sign up will appear on Club Registration about a month before the event.

Who can attend: New and novice autocrossers (driven less than 4 autocrosses) only!
