Autocross is a grassroots speed event that takes place on predominantly unsealed courses as laid out in the AutoCross Standing Regulations. Unlike Khanacross, Autocross allows for longer distances and slightly higher speeds, making it a more advanced form of grassroots motorsport. The course must not be less than 400m nor exceed 4km in length, with no straight section exceeding 200m, unless approved by Motorsport Australia.
Autocross events are typically held on privately-owned gravel roads such as the roads at Walky Park, offering a challenging and technical course for competitors. The competition is open to drivers of all skill levels, with categories for different engine sizes and levels of experience as laid out in the Motorsport Australia - Group 4K Regulations.
The objective of Autocross is to complete the course in the shortest possible time without incurring any penalties. Competitors must adhere to the rules and regulations of the event, including safety requirements and driving conduct. The event is designed to be accessible to everyone, with competitors able to use their own cars, provided they meet minimum safety requirements set by the event organizers.
Autocross provides an opportunity for drivers to hone their skills, test their car control and judgment, and develop their abilities to handle a car at higher speeds. It's a fun and challenging environment that encourages drivers to improve their driving techniques and push themselves to be the best they can be. It's also a great way to meet like-minded individuals who share a passion for motorsport and offers a stepping stone to other forms of motorsport, such as RallySprints and Special Stage Rallying.
