This is the nation’s largest consumer motorcycle tour.

Have you always wanted to know what it’s like to drive a Ferrari? How about a Lamborghini? Wish you could compete in the Grand Prix? Well now is the chance. Autocross is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe competition and active participation. An autocross is a timed competition in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course on either a sealed or an unsealed surface. Autocross differs from road racing and oval racing in that generally there is only one car on the track, racing against the clock rather than other cars. As an entry-level motorsport it provides a stepping stone for drivers looking to move into other more competitive and possibly expensive forms of racing.
