Getting involved is EASY.

In your area, check out the Texas Spokes Autocross Group. They are affiliated with the Lone Star Sports Car Club of America (SCCA).

Check them out.

Contact Sasha Lanz at 972-235-4305

She can get you started.

Cost too much? No way. Average cost for an event is $30 and requires NO SPECIAL PREPARATION for the car. The vehicle simply needs to have a valid inspection (if your state requires one) and good tires and brakes.

Will it hurt my car? Very and I mean VERY LITTLE chance of that happening. The truth is driving on the street is arguably more abusive to the car than autocross. Certainly the tires wear a bit more, but not appreciably unless you are out every weekend.

Give it a shot! You won't regret it!
