Autocrosses are courses delineated with pylons in large parking lots or old airports taxiways. They are timed competitive events. The driver with the lowest time and least penalty points wins. Cars are usually classed according to model, engine size and other performance parameters. Knocking pylons out of position results in penalty points and going off course usually disqualifies that run. There are usually several runs on the course with the best time determining the winner. Autocross are usually low speed events, emphasizing handling and driving skills rather than raw horsepower and speed. It's common to never get out of second gear in an autocross.
