Laughing out loud, face beaming in delight … "I can't believe this is legal"! It's the typical sentiment of every novice autocross driver and it's exactly how my student for the day put it when we were part way through the morning of a 2016 autocross driving school with BMWCCA.
Autocross improves your car handling skills and makes you a safer driver by encouraging you to look ahead
Autocross is not only a truly exhilarating sport, it will also improve your street driving skills and make you a safer driver. If you enjoy being behind the wheel, autocross must be on your bucket list! (And my advice is do it sooner rather than later …. You may just end up being an autocross addict for the rest of your life. I only discovered Autocross in middle age, but wish I had discovered it when I was much younger).
The oldest participant I've met doing Autocross regularly is 94, the youngest is 7. This is a sport for every age. And it's popular with both genders - in fact many couples autocross together.
