2022 Learning Curve – 2 Day Autocross School
April 2, 2022 @ 7:00 am – April 3, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
About this event
The Learning Curve is a bit different than the average autocross event. The goal with this 2-Day Instructional Course is to get folks who are new to racing to be more comfortable with the process and nuances so they can be more focused on racing and having fun while at the race. An autocross can be a stressful day if you aren’t prepared, and by the end of this weekend you will be ready for pretty much anything that could come your way on race day.
Learn how to race your car on a closed race course with personal instruction. Autox or Solo racing is the sport of racing against the clock on a race course made of small orange traffic cones. The goal being to navigate the course in the shortest amount of time possible without knocking down any of the cones or deviating from the course which would be known as a DNF or did not finish. You race one at a time, this is not wheel to wheel racing. The best instructors in the area will give you one-on-one instruction in your car and get you up to speed! How to attack the day from the beginning to end. We will teach you the basics of the sport including how to prepare your car and yourself for the day and also how to work the course. What to expect the day of the event from registration through the trophy ceremony. No matter where you attend an Autocross event, you will be well prepared after having attended the Learning Curve.
