Autocross is a form of racing that pushes a car and its driver to the limit. On the surface, it seems relatively simple: navigate a cone course as quickly as possible without hitting any cones or losing control. Most autocross courses are relatively compact, and don't provide enough room to reach the triple-digit speeds you might see on a full-size track. However, the sport places a heavy emphasis on precise acceleration, braking, and handling. Making a car dance through the cones is far from easy.
