Preparing Your Car for Starting Line

Technical Inspection: Before we take to the course, we need to make sure all vehicles pass a technical inspection. Your vehicle will be checked to ensure it has functioning brakes, throttle return, properly installed and tightened wheels and that all loose items have been removed. One item of particular interest is the driver's side floor mat, which must be removed to prevent interfering with proper pedal function.

Tire Prep: Under-inflated tires can result in increased wear and even damage while autocrossing. To preserve you tires, and to give your vehicle a quicker response, it is generally advisable to inflate your tires 5-10psi more than what is recommended for normal driving. Doing so bolsters your tire's sidewall, making the lateral loads and weight transfer associated with autocross easier to manage.
