Autocross Documentary Explains Motorsports Most Accessible Form Of Competition

Motorsports blog ColdTrackDays just picked up this documentary on autocross, one of the cheapest forms of auto racing you can compete in. Shot by Stephen Chiang, a cinematography student at Grossmont College, the documentary is shot in sharp, high-definition video, and features footage of everything from go-karts to Formula Fords to old Volkswagens to Chevrolet Impalas tearing around Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego’s autocross venue of choice.

Unlike most motorsports videos, which are more concerned about making their participants look cool, the folks in this clip seem more concerned about having a good time behind the wheel and competing in a good natured manner. The video does a great job of capturing the lighter, grassroots side of auto racing, and is highly reccomended if you’ve ever entertained the notion of competing in some sort of timed event.
