Autocross, sometimes referred to as Autoslalom, Solo II, or AutoX, is an event where drivers navigate through a defined course. Autocross is a test of driver skill and handling rather than all out speed.

Autocross differs from oval track racing and road racing in that generally there is only one car on the track. The layout of the course is defined using traffic cones and the goal is to complete the course as quick as possible without disturbing the cones and assessing penalties.

No racing experience is required!

In the hands of professional racing drivers, you are sure to have an amazing driving day. You’ll receive instruction from a professional driver who will be in the vehicle with you.

The exciting driving experience takes place at YPK Integrated Training Centre in Pitt Meadows, midway between the city of Abbotsford and Vancouver.  This is a perfect track facility for the winter months. Its wide-open space allows you to push it to the limit and you only have to worry about knocking an orange pylon out of place.

Highlights:

  • Maneuver a professionally designed road course as quickly as you can.
  • Put your driving skills and maneuvering abilities to the test.
  • No experience necessary.
