Going Autocross: What did that Cone Mean?

When it comes to autocross, cones mean more than just a barrier. They can range from pointers, to gates, to obstacles. On top of that, they can increase your actual time with penalties. We'll look at what the various cone configurations mean, and we'll look into course maps in this article about going autocross.

Nice write up. Here's a couple of videos of my runs here in Colorado.


If you have never tried it, you should. Not much can happen to your car, maybe a scuff or 2 from hitting a cone (buffs right out, normally), a little tire wear but all in all a great way to spend a day and meet some friends.... When picking a class, consider Classic American Muscle.

Cool article. I will be getting back into it when I return to the states. This is a much faster car than before and my car control has improved a lot since then as well.
