Autocross & Time Trial (AX/TT)

What is an Autocross? It is a timed automobile competition, where one car at a time drives a course defined by pylons and/or painted lines on a paved surface. Penalties are assessed for hitting the pylons or crossing the painted lines. Historically, an autocross requires the ability to look at a driving course (you get to walk the course prior to driving it) and to anticipate what must be done to drive it quickly...you don't get to practice!

In contrast, a Time Trial event is conducted on a permanent road course, as at a race track, where each time you drive, the corners are in the same places. You get to practice a lot for Time Trials...you gradually bring your speed up, until you cannot improve further. An Autocross requires you to go fast immediately.
