Autocrossing is a time-based event in which cars race against the clock on a course made of cones. Doesn't sound complicated or exciting, but it is the complete driving experience, allowing you to push the limits of you and your car in a controlled environment.

The night autocross is a special event that attracts drivers from all over. Instead of racing during the day, the racing is done during the night using luminary-lit "cones" to determine the course versus regular cones. Part of a two-day weekend of autocrossing, so you can drive both day and night!

The annual night autocross had a stellar turnout--one of the largest I've seen in years. However the cars were seriously lacking the tire-flies, club lighting, underglows, and strobe setups I've seen in previous years. So after a few nightvision video clips, I decided to try something new and and take pictures of the cars in absolute darkness. And the results turned out pretty cool.

Tristan was co-driving a turbo-charged Celica that he's never driven and quickly showed the owner who's boss. He had the fastest time of the day after just a few runs, and it was an omen of things to come on this two-day weekend of autocrossing. The fastest times were a little bit more than 30 seconds on this short but completely glow-stick lined course. There were only two run groups and each group got only three runs to keep the event short enough for everyone to get home and rest for the next day's event. Enjoy the pictures and videos!
