2021 Autocross Championship
ACSMC’s Competitors Guide – Autocross
What is Autocross?
The Autocross Championship is run across the Central South and South Western Association areas.
Autocross events are run on off-road circuits of about 1000m, normally on grass or stubble. Timing is against the clock, with up to four cars on track at the same time.
Track conditions can change rapidly, so drivers need to adjust their technique to find the best traction to achieve the fastest time.
The event starts with practice followed usually by at least two timed runs, with the fastest time to count for results. You can start to compete in Autocross events from the age of 14 and with a Interclub Motorsport UK Competition Licence, the basic safety equipment – fire resistant overalls and gloves, crash helmet and fi re extinguisher – you can take your everyday car and have a go. Cars vary from standard road cars through rally cars, lightweight Autocross cars and specials. Full regulations and requirements are in Section ‘N’ of the Motorsport UK Competitors Year Book. Minimum Age: 16 (Juniors – 14). ASWMC Championship Registration Fee: £15; free for Junior Autocross competitors. Motorsport UK Competition Licence required: any Interclub.
