Autoslalom is a terrific sport for any car enthusiast. Autoslalom, also known as Solo 2 or autocross, is a timed competition that pits car and driver against the clock on a mini-road course laid out with pylons, designed by club members.  It is a non-wheel-to-wheel event that sends cars out one at a time, and emphasizes driver skill and precise car control.  Courses vary from event to event, and emphasize both skill and safety.  A typical course may be 1 to 1.5km, feature 25-35 changes of direction, and take 45-55 adrenline-filled seconds to complete, with speeds varying from 30 to as high as 100kph.

Autoslalom is the ideal place for both novice drivers wanting to develop their skills and learn more about their car’s handling, as well as for experienced and competitive drivers who wish to push themselves and their cars to their limits.  Cars are grouped into classes based on specifications and level of modification – which can run from completely stock sedans and coupes to full race cars.

Minimal Equipment:
Equipment requirements are minimal: you need to bring yourself, and your car, in good mechanical condition and able to pass a basic technical inspection done at the event.  A helmet is required, conforming to at least Snell M2000 specification (most motorcycle helmets are fine). The club hasloaner helmets, or you can borrow one from a friend, so newcomers can try out the sport first, and purchase your own helmet once you’re hooked on the sport – which won’t take long!  Participants must wear seatbelts – your car’s standard factory belts are fine.

When and Where:
The Autoslalom season runs from late April or early May to late September, and the Calgary Sports Car Club currently holds events at Westerner Park. Check the CSCC website or webforum for scheduling information.

The Buddy System:
If you feel intimidated by all this, don’t be! The CSCC prides itself in making new competitors feel welcome. Let us know if you are new to the sport and we will pair you up with one of our long time members. They will assist you with tech inspection, entry, a course walk and coaching during the day.
