The Golden Gate Lotus Club announces a tentative schedule of dates for our Lotus Autocrosses in 2023.
GGLC Autocrosses are designed to allow the Lotus and sports car enthusiast enjoy driving in controlled
conditions without random traffic and law enforcement. GGLC autocross is the perfect place to explore the
the capability of your car.
What is an Autocross?
An autocross is a driving event where you can drive your car on a closed temporary course. A typical
autocross course is marked out with orange traffic pylons and is driven at lower speeds. Drivers are timed while on
course and hitting a pylon adds a 1 second penalty. Typically the course is layed out to test a driver's skill and the
cars handling and agility. GGLC events are low-key, fun and encourage drivers to enjoy and learn about their cars.
GGLC AUTOCROSS FORMAT GGLC Autocross events will be will have a limited number of drivers to allow drivers to get a large number
of runs. Drivers are broken into groups and the groups rotate between running and working. All drivers are
required to work.
Drivers are asked to arrive early to help set-up and to attend a driver's meeting before the first run group.
