Autocross / Sandocross

Autocrosses are speed events, on a grass surface, around a course of typically half to three quarters of a mile, marked out with flags and straws bales.

Results are determined by your best time, usually over 2 laps, but cars start in pairs, so there's also the element of direct competition. The sandocrosses at Weston Super Mare have a similar format, but run on the beach, and starting four at a time!

Competitors often use specially prepared, though not necessarily expensive cars, brought on trailers. Some safety equipment, such as a roll cage and full safety harness, is mandatory. Successful autocrossers often make good rally drivers, and vice-versa!

FDMC's annual event is the Barley Mow autocross. For more information on autocrossing, contact Paul Prescott.
