Hotchkis Sport Suspension/Baer Brakes NMRA/NMCA Autocross



Why try autocross?
Imagine standing on the throttle, then pushing on the brakes to maximum, and then turning the steering wheel hard to make the corner. Now think about doing this in a friendly, safe, no pressure environment. This is autocross, and yes, it is fun!
In years past, attending a car show meant driving to the show, finding a nice parking place, unfolding the lawn chairs and pulling out the build book. While a static car show can still be enjoyable, getting behind the wheel and pushing your favorite project car/ truck to the limit is thrilling.
In the interest of safety and enjoyment, autocross events are held in large, wide open parking lots. A course is set up using orange cones, and the driver navigates the course as quickly as possible. Each vehicle is timed, and to encourage safe in control driving, hitting cones results in time penalties. (Penalty is 2 seconds per cone.) Autocross events are “Time Trial” type single car competitions with no wheel to wheel racing. Vehicles stage and then start on a light, run the course and then finish through a timing beam before coming to a complete stop in the stop box area.
Just bring your registered/street legal vehicle to the Hotchkis/Baer Autocross registration/tech area next to the course entrance to get inspected. Once passed you are ready to run.
Who can participate?
Any registered participant of a NMRA/NMCA event can run the Autocross. Though a separate registration and inspection is required to run the autocross course.
