I wanted to know more about autocross and those who compete in autocross, AX or SOLO as the SCCA program is called. So in a purely scientific vein I ventured out to FedEx field on Sunday, and took a look at the cars and people who participate to better gauge whether I had any business getting involved. Turns out I met a lot of friendly gear heads and automotive enthusiasts who offered me tips, and information. I even found a group of VW enthusiasts, and received an offer for a ride-along from one of them. It was a lot of fun watching, but I imagine it still can’t prepare you for the first time you bring your own with which to compete.
