take out your spare tire and stereo equipment (if you can).... bring a jacket, umbrella, lawn chair, tire pressure guage and money $53.00 for membership + $15.00 for event fee. That's pretty much it. wear comfy clothes too.

....and switch to crappy tires coz it's a stupped round-a-round pylons race on asphalt/concrete. save your good rubbers.

autoX is the grade school of motorsports *wave*

That's a pretty stupid thing to say. The skills and techniques that make you a good autocrosser translate directly to open track driving or racing. Ask around.

Sorry, but the statement you made shows people that you really don't know much about motorsports.

GT?

You've missed the point. Let me help you:

The point wasn't whether or not F1 drivers (alive or dead) are autocrossers.

The point was that you can actually learn a ton of skills and principles from autocrossing. It's been proven over and over again. It's a fact. Ask any of the people on this board who do it.

GT?

hahaha im not knockin' autoX, you 'mis-dissected' my comment. 'grade school' means fundamental or early studies something along these lines. sho-ur-right, its a start.
I know autoX. it's an exciting and heart thomping experience for beginners and 'i'll show you' atitude for seasoned racers. Sure there will be adrenalin flowing in anticipation for going around pylons and target apexing. only lacking is wheel-to-wheel racing. it's a fun event! *th-up*

Ahhhhhhhh! Quebec City...grade 10, Natalie? and Valerie?...how could I forget....and it was all downhill from there, just kidding! B-Lo! I raced a CLK 430 this am, and you know what...he had a pretty hard time beating me. I was surprised because the Benz is a 4.3 litre 300-ish horsepower machine but I guess he learned his lesson...Don't fart around with the Beeeemer!

No offence taken. Remember, his car is automatic and I don't lie about this type of stuff. I, as well as every other member knows exactly what our cars can and do produce.
Who did your picture like that? I like it!
