WHAT IS AN AUTOCROSS?
An autocross is a performance driving event where you can drive your car on a closed temporary course. A typical autocross course is marked out with orange traffic pylons and is driven at lower speeds. Drivers are timed while on course and hitting a pylon adds a 1 second penalty. Typically the course is layed out to test a driver's skill and the cars handling and agility. GGLC events are low-key, fun and encourage drivers to enjoy and learn about their cars.
GGLC AUTOCROSS FORMAT
GGLC Autocross events will be will have a limited number of drivers to allow drivers to get a large number of runs. Drivers are broken into groups and the groups rotate between running and working. All drivers are required to work.
Drivers are asked to arrive early to help set-up and to attend a driver's meeting before the first run group.
