  Autocross - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Autocross is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe, low-cost competition and active participation.
An autocross is a timed competition where drivers navigate one at a time through a temporary course marked by traffic cones, rather than racing on a track with multiple other cars, as in road racing or oval racing.
Autocross tends to place more emphasis on car handling and driver skill than on sheer horsepower, and events typically have many classes which allow almost any vehicle, from economy sedans to purpose-built vehicles, to compete.
