Autocross 101

An episode catered after numerous reader questions on the topic, we cover all things autocross. What do you need to know if you're a first timer? What car should you bring? Does it wear out your car? We answer these and provide a comprehensive how-to on introduction to motorsport, and how the grassroots community around autocross is one of the best. We bring podcast alumni and autocross veteran Louis Vo in for this round of chat.
