Think of autocrossing similar to Downhill ski racing. You're only allowed to sideslip the course (i.e. slide sideways down the hill observing the course but not running it). That's the trick of autocross and it gives more competition. It's also similar to rally racing minus the navigator. They don't even get a chance to run the course and rely on notes from the navigator.

I always worry too much about hitting the pilons therefore I often take it caution inbetween pilons on each side, scrubbing unecessary speed off. That's what I need to improve on.
