The Who, What, When and Where of SASCA!

What?
What is Autocross (aka AutoX) you ask?  -  autocross.com and The SoloII Novice Handbook both have great info on that.
What can you expect at a typical SASCA AutoX event?  -  Click here for a typical event schedule, and a short video

Who?
For a history of SASCA, See the SASCA History
In short, we are a bunch of car and racing enthusiasts who enjoy testing our own driving skills, and the fun of competition among friends.

Who can Race?
If you have a valid drivers license, and a car to drive, then you can race!  
Autocross races are not exclusively for Highly Modified and tricked out race cars!  We see everything from a '80s Dodge Aries, to a BMW 7 series, to Mazda a Miata and even the occasional truck!  If your not sure if your vehicle is legal to race, ask by posting a new question here.

Can I just watch?
Absolutely!  Our race events are open to the public.  Feel free to come by and watch a few cars, or the whole day of racing.

When?
We hold races once a month on a Sunday.  
The main front page of this website lists the most recent coming events in the top right.
You can also view all coming SASCA events in the Calendar.

Where?
Races are held in 2 locations.
  • The main parking lot of the Blossom Athletic Center.

The Virgil T. Blossom Athletic Center, located in North-Central San Antonio, just north of the San Antonio International Airport.
The Pit area will be in the WEST parking lot, next to the school buses (yellow area on map). 
You will need to enter the facility via the driveway next to the school bus lot off of Jones-Maltsberger Rd (red marker on map). 
All other entrances will be blocked off.
