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.
For the 2016 Autocross season, we are combining efforts with Equipe Rapide. Please see their website for overall event information.
Maverick Region will be scheduling our own Time Trial events in the fall.
