Autocross Tips 101: Part 1

Being prepared and having a great day at an autocross event starts the day before.
Being prepared and having a great day at an autocross event starts the day before.
Step #1 Clean your car! No, you don’t have to wash it but you have to get rid of all the loose stuff in there. Remove everything but the essentials including your floor mats.
Step #2 Create a checklist of everything you need to bring to the event (and keep it for each event to follow)- it should include food and plenty to drink, proper clothing and protection for the expected weather, pre-registering (do this days before the event) and your money or season pass, tire pressure gage and pump, your car numbers, and any small tools or jacks you may need for your particular vehicle. Have everything in the car or nearby ready to go.
Step#3 GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP and get up early! Eat a good breakfast and get caffeinated if that’s your thing. If you feel your best you will do your best. It might not seem like it’s that hard to drive around a parking lot but there are cones to carry and run after to reset and plenty of walking to be had.
