2024 Autocross Season Rules

Please review the Autocross Rules 2024 (link below) as well. Rules remain largely the same as 2023. The important changed bits of the rules are highlighted in GREEN. We continue to use a PAX factor method for scoring, which is a way to compare times for drivers of cars that are in different classes. It does this by “normalizing” everyone’s times to the fastest class. First step: when you register, use the result from the Self Classification spreadsheet (link below) to class your car. We have two spreadsheets to help. One is completely blank and all questions need to be answered. The other has “As Delivered” selected for all lines so that you only have to make minimal changes if your car is (mostly) stock. For 2024, we will also test a secondary PAX system to allow our SCCA friends to normalize their results as well. Questions? Email

Autocross (AX)

Autocross is an inexpensive and fun way to hone your skills and understand the dynamics of your car in a safe environment. Your goal is to learn to drive around a course in the shortest possible time. The course is laid out in a big empty parking lot and outlined by orange plastic cones. We emphasize safety, fun and speed. Top speeds are around 55 MPH with most cars running in second gear. Every run is timed electronically, with a 2-second penalty applied for each cone tipped over. You can measure your progress throughout the day and compare to other drivers and car models. Autocross is also a driver education class. Instructors are available (as allowed under Covid rules).


HPDE events are not racing. Cars on-track operate under strict “rules of engagement” which minimize the likelihood of dangerous encounters with other cars. Occasional off-track excursions into the gravel or grass are normally controlled stops, with track personnel and on-board instructors supervising a safe re-entry onto the track. Passing among participants is allowed only within defined “passing zones”, and then only with clear hand signals and instructor confirmation. PCA and NASA increase the number of passing zones or eliminate the requirement for signals in groups with more experienced students to reduce traffic on track.

High Performance Driver Education (HPDE) refers to driving schools held on dedicated race tracks. The goal of HPDE is to teach drivers proper high-speed driving techniques. Nearby PCA Regions who host HPDE events include Inter mountain (IRPCA) (Salt Lake City), Rocky Mountain (RMR) (Denver), Pacific Northwest (PNWR) (Seattle), Inland Northwest (INWR) and Golden Gate (GGR) (Bay Area). In addition, National Auto Sport Association (NASA Utah) sponsors track weekends monthly at UMC. Participants include both students and instructors. Students are grouped according to their ability and experience, with “Novice Group” students being the least experienced, “Intermediate Group” being more experienced and “Advanced Group” drivers being the most experienced. PCA and NASA allow intermediate and advanced students to drive the racetrack without a ride-along instructor. Mandatory classroom briefings and debriefings contributes to the overall learning experience and allows peer-group discussions of on-track performance, incidents and track characteristics.
