What is Auto Crossing and what happens at the National Gathering. Also what is there to do with you NA at the Gather or is it pretty much turbos and VR4s and not worth bringing your NA?

Absolutley. Autocross is a timed race where one car goes out alone amoungst a course of cones and trys to get the fastest time without hitting any cones. At the NG they will have FWD & AWD classes. Having a higher HP car doesn't guarantee you'll do better in autox. Bring out the NA!

Check out youtube for some autocross vids to get the idea.

The NG is a great place to autocross.

The track is designed for our cars not miatas so while its challenging its not outside the abilitys of a stock car.

We break the racers into 5 groups.

FWD
FWD - Modified Suspension
AWD
AWD - Modified Suspension
Other

Suspension mods are more important than power mods because of the way the track is setup.

A stock NA can be very competitive and have alot of fun without beating on the car too hard.

That being said what is the Road Course consist of and are there classes for the drag racing of NAs also?
The road course does not have classes last I knew of, everyone runs together. The drags however, yes. Should be something like AWD, AWD unlimited, FWD, and FWD power-adder.

Alan, any idea of what the autox course is going to look like? IIRC at indy last time it was something as simple as a circle. Any improvements this time around?

We won't know till wed night.

It won't be a circle.

Eric's via shows a great view of what we did last year.

I am sure that Chris and Levi will come up with something equally as evil this year.
