I don't know who's dumber. The people setting up the course or the people who are willing to drive on that course.

That was so stupid. Plus if you are sitting there spinning your wheels all the time you are losing time. Better to slow down have traction and get thru the coarse faster.

I think many geographies don't have wide-open runways or even unobstructed parking lots for autocross events, so these guys probably made the most out of the site... That Mustang driver had no idea what he was doing, though...

Hard to tell if it is the driver or the course design. Most likely a bit of both. Less foot would have prevented this More cones to slow the cars down may have prevented this

From the website:
Here is an advanced autocross course design technique: Using trees for the layout. Saves time on course setup and breakdown, and it cuts down on the number of corner workers needed, as there are fewer cones to shag.


I would rather hit a cone than a tree. Using trees is a terrible idea IMO. Tough/crazy autocrossers!!

I am guessing that was an attempt at humor on the site.

haha... this made me laugh just because using trees to save time in course design spells out a crash of some sort
