An autocross is a skill driving event in which one car at a time negotiates a prescribed course, using traffic cones to define a variety of turns. The course is set up so that you are operating in lower gears. During each run you will be able to drive your car at it's limit of acceleration, turning, and braking...and yours. You will develop a sense of timing, judgment, and ability to interpret your vehicle's handling characteristics - at safe speeds and in a safe place.

I plan to finally test out the g/f's tsx at this event. Should be fun she's been looking forward to doing an event all year it's just the past few events have fallen on bad dates for us.

I guess I need to point out that you might see this event published on June 30th but it was moved to the 1st.

It is the annual TVR (north) vs ALABAMA (south) autocross. Saturday we are all heading down to Birmingham to steel trophies and then Sunday we come back to Huntsville and defend home turf.

I checked all the threads and updated all the info for the event. Thank you for the post!

I'm a bit confused though--wasn't event 4 also North vs South?

No. You can actually even ride along with people for free. You just have to wear a helmat (which limited numbers are provided on site)

There's normally some cool stuff at the events. I still haven't decided what i'm driving. This will by my g/f's first autocross in her new car which is also her first manual (she's been driving it since october of last year so she's finally really got the hang of it and it's starting to become second nature) so I may just co drive with her and attempt to help vs. actually driving my Z06. If it was still at milton frank it would be a harder choice but i'm just not to fond of JHP.

Throwing this out there for anyone potentially needing a set of auto x tires for this event/season. I have a worn set of Bridgestone RE01Rs that I want to sell on the cheap! 245/45/18. They have 20-25k highway miles on them and one TAC autox school weekend. They are worn, but will serve a distinct purposes for someone.

817
three seven one
eight nine
14

is my number. Call/text or leave me a visitor message if you are interested!

That's why you got them! They make them every day lol
Really though if you want to run, you can come to bham, the surface is much better, so they won't die as quickly lol
