A pick-up truck auto crossing? How wide are your turns?

In the good old days of bug eyed Sprites and MG-TD's, a Volvo PV544 Sport was consider a big car and had understeer issues autocrossing. The local SCCA chapter used to race every second saturday in the Engineering building parking lot. My 1961 Corvair Monza convertible was a barge by comparison.

Hey Everybody! Here's the rules and classes! Get signed up today!





Hotchkis Sport Suspension/Baer Brakes NMRA/NMCA Autocross


Why try autocross?
Imagine standing on the throttle, then pushing on the brakes to maximum, and then turning the steering wheel hard to make the corner. Now think about doing this in a friendly, safe, no pressure environment. This is autocross, and yes, it is fun!
In years past, attending a car show meant driving to the show, finding a nice parking place, unfolding the lawn chairs and pulling out the build book. While a static car show can still be enjoyable, getting behind the wheel and pushing your favorite project car/ truck to the limit is thrilling.
In the interest of safety and enjoyment, autocross events are held in large, wide open parking lots. A course is set up using orange cones, and the driver navigates the course as quickly as possible. Each vehicle is timed, and to encourage safe in control driving, hitting cones results in time penalties. (Penalty is 2 seconds per cone.) Autocross events are “Time Trial” type single car competitions with no wheel to wheel racing. Vehicles stage and then start on a light, run the course and then finish through a timing beam before coming to a complete stop in the stop box area.
Just bring your registered/street legal vehicle to the Hotchkis/Baer Autocross registration/tech area next to the course entrance to get inspected. Once passed you are ready to run.

NMCA/NMRA West Coast Nationals

Earlier this month Hotchkis joined forces with Baer Brakes to host an Autocross and SpeedStop Challenge at the first ever NMCA/NMRA West Coast Shootout. The event was a stunning success with over 50 participants running all weekend. With classes for Modern Muscle, Street Machine, Muscle Machine, Truck, Street Rod and Turn & Burn, there was a great array of cars, trucks and customs running the cones and locking up the tires on the autocross and SpeedStop courses.

Competition in some classes was fierce and the results very close. Deanna Marengo narrowly took the win in Muscle Machine with a 36.25 over 2nd place Kyle Newman's 36.47. Deanna runs a full Hotchkis 2nd gen TVS on her stunning cherry metallic F-body.

Another hotly contested class was Modern Muscle, with over 20 entries. Bruce Cambern placed 1st in his…For more of the write up for this event, Click Here
