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…most of the time), a season of autoslalom puts less wear and tear on a vehicle than a Winnipeg winter!

Competition begins

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

  1. Pull up near the timing trailer (there might be a queue of cars)

  • If you are familiar with our grid system, check the signs for what run group you are in and where your run group is gridding, park your car in an appropriate grid spot and go to the timing trailer

  • If you are not familiar with our grid system OR you are part of our Novice Division, just head up to the timing trailer

  1. Sign the waiver, grab a wristband and put it on your left wrist (it makes it easy for the person working the start line to see it)

  2. When check-in opens:

  3. Check-in (or register if needed)

  • If you didn’t complete the online tech sheet (this is our preferred method) you will need to fill out a paper copy which you can print from here (tech sheet)*. It is best to complete this PRIOR to coming to the event to make sure that your car meets the safety requirements.

  • Determine your run group and which grid spots to use

  • Sign up for a work duty for your run group. Working is a mandatory part of autoslalom.

  • Take a course map

  1. If you haven’t already done so, park your car in grid

  2. Prep your car, go for a course walk, help with event setup or just hang out with some like-minded people. If you are a novice, don’t forget that you have a mandatory course walk at 10:10 starting at the timing trailer. You have to walk before you can drive.

*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.

Results

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
