Autocross


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

What is a Mirrorcross? Mirrorcross is like autocross with an awesome twist. Competitors line up at the Christmas Tree and go heads up down the straight start. Then they make a turn onto the mirror image courses and autocross their way back to the finish line. Competitors switch sides and go again. In fact, each competitor will get at least 6 runs on each side of the course for a total of 12 runs! Your fastest left side and fastest right side are added together to generate your overall finishing position.
