The official schedule for 2016 Autoslalom series has been released! See below.
For the latest details, and to stay up to date on all Autoslalom news, check out our forums at forums.wscc.mb.ca. Scroll down about half way to find the Autoslalom section.
Below is the schedule for 2016.
The first event on Sat, Apr 30 will be a Test and Tune. No season points will be awarded. This will simply be a fun day for members to bring their cars out, do some fun runs, shake off the rust (driver’s rust, that is) and test out any changes to their setups. There will also be a mid-season Test and Tune in July.

Individual event results will typically be made available the day after an event. Season standings will be updated after every race weekend.
We now have live results available online during an event. Though these are unofficial until our crew has had a chance to review everything at the end of the day and sort out any mistakes or technical glitches, they are usually quite accurate. We encourage spectators at the event to follow along on their smartphones, it adds to the excitement of the live racing. Anyone can also follow along at home if you are unable to make it to the event. As a reminder, drivers are not allowed to view their smartphones or any other distractions while working the course, or (obviously) while driving. 🙂
Live Results can be found at live.axti.me

What is Autoslalom?
Fast. Cheap. Fun.
Also known as solo racing and more commonly “autocross,” autoslalom is a timed motorsport competition that rewards intense concentration, car control skills, and vehicle handling. Drivers navigate one at a time through a course defined by traffic cones, usually in large parking lots or on airport runways. While speeds tend to be lower than other forms of motorsports, usually not exceeding 100 km/h, the activity level (measured in turns per minute) can be higher than even Formula One due to the number of elements packed into each course. Courses are different at each event and every driver gets three or four attempts to put down their best time.
Cars are classed according to their level of preparation and relative performance. There are classes for all types of cars from stock econo-boxes to fully race-prepared formula cars, though most local competitors drive stock or slightly modified daily-driven sport cars and sedans. The only safety equipment required is a helmet, seat belts, and a car in proper working condition.
Autoslalom is an excellent way to develop your driving skills and is very affordable compared to other motorsports. Aside from some extra tire wear and the occasional cone mark (they buff out), a season of autoslalom puts less wear and tear on a vehicle than a Winnipeg winter!

We will be hosting a couple of autoslalom-oriented high performance driving schools in 2016.
Level 1 – Sunday, June 5, 2016
Level 2 – Sunday, August 14, 2016
Stay tuned for more details.
We typically host 2 schools each year:
Level 1 is ideal for novices, but very useful for veterans as well. It’s great as an introduction to the sport and also provides much seat time to practice the fundamentals with personalized instruction
Level 2 is designed for racers with at least 2 seasons of autocross under their belts, and works on the finer details of at-the-limit driving and event execution.
Interested in a private school? We can tailor the curriculum to you! Minimum 12 students required. Contact us for more information.
