NYBMWCCA Auto-X Series!

Autocross is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe competition and active participation. Autocross differs from road racing in that one competes against the clock rather than other cars on a course defined by traffic cones. Autocross courses tend to place demands on car handling and driver skill rather than on engine power and outright speed. While speeds are generally no greater than those encountered in legal highway driving, the combination of concentration and precision maneuvering gives drivers an experience similar to that of a full road course race.


Autocross is open to novices and one of the most accessible and affordable forms of motorsport.  As an entry-level motorsport it provides a stepping stone for drivers looking to move into other more competitive and possibly expensive forms of racing. Events typically have many classes that allow almost any vehicle, from economy sedans to purpose-built racing cars, to compete.
