April 24, 2018 – We have made a change to the 2018 Supplemental Regulations for Autoslalom regarding the use of electric and/or hybrid vehicles that have lithium based battery systems. ASN Canada is currently working on a policy statement regarding electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles with lithium based battery systems . Until the policy has been finalized all such vehicles are EXCLUDED from competition.
The official schedule for 2019 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 a bit to find the Autoslalom section) or follow us on Facebook.
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…most of the time), a season of autoslalom puts less wear and tear on a vehicle than a Winnipeg winter!

Online registration will be with our online partners MotorsportsReg.com (a.k.a MSR). Simply go to wscc.mortorsportreg.com to get the full list of WSCC Autoslalom events, click the link to the event you are interested on and follow the instructions from there. Events will be posted at least 14 days before the event date and the posting will contain the details such as pricing, event schedule and membership requirements. You can find the calendar to all WSCC events here.
Plan on attending your first autoslalom with the WSCC? For more information on how to register, please see our step-by-step Registration Guide.
This applies to autoslalom race events only and does not reflect pricing for special events such Schools and Club Events. All pricing will be detailed on the event page on MSR.
We are hoping to offer electronic payment on-site this season. However as this is a new service that we can’t really test until we go live with the season, please have some cash as backup if you intend to pay onsite. Ideally, we would prefer if everyone registered early and paid online as it makes the morning of the event run a lot smoother.
You can cancel your registration online while online registration is open. Refunds will be in the form of a credit on your MSR account towards another WSCC Autoslalom event in the 2018 season.
EVENT PASSES NOT AVAILABLE FOR 2019
For our regular events at St. Andrew’s Airport this our normal schedule. Please note that Fun Run Days, Test & Tune Days, Schools and our events at Gimli Motorsports Park have different schedules, however, you can find those details at MSR when the event is posted.
We have a 30-minute lunch break after 1st heat. The length of the heats is dependent on the number of competitors, therefore we don’t have an exact time but expect lunch to start around 12:30…could be earlier, could be later.
CHECK-IN PROCEDURE AT EVENTS
*All participants are responsible for going through the tech sheet before the event. Random inspections may take place. It is rare, but we have had to turn people away that can’t pass tech.
We 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. Competitors have 48 hours to inform us of a mistake in the results. If a mistake is found you can send a message through the MSR event page.
We encourage spectators at the event to follow the live timing 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 use their smartphones or any other distractions while working the course, or while driving…obviously 🙂
Live Results can be found at live.axti.me
Current & Past Results HERE
We usually host a couple of autoslalom-oriented high-performance schools each year. Watch the forums for dates and links.
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 autoslalom under their belts, and works on the finer details of at-the-limit driving and event execution.
Watch the forums, Facebook and MSR for more details.
Interested in a private school? We can tailor the curriculum to you! Minimum 12 students required. Contact us for more information.
