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.

Anywhere from 60-100 drivers typically race. And there's between 100-200 people at each event.

This one may have slightly lower numbers because of the time of year being so close to the holidays. But it may actually be bigger since this is the last one of the year, and the city has currently not responded to scheduling requests for the 2013 season.

Usually it's a good mix. People do come from Nashville and Birmingham a lot. I'd say a good 60% are not immediate Huntsville residents.

I will be there for this event.

I would recommend others from the community to come out and show their support! Who knows? You may even feel up to a run around the cones!

Depending on the weather we usually draw no more than 60 to this year ending event. If it is messy and cold, expect less.

Was there anymore pictures? I was looking for my car, but I couldn't find one. The only one I saw was my car being used as a background shot, just curious.
