Autocross is back in Edmonton with StratoCross Time Trials held at Stratotech Raceway just 15 minutes north of Edmonton!

What is an Autocross?

An Autocross is a race against the clock (as opposed to wheel-to-wheel) around a unique course defined by cones or pylons. It is one of the safest and lowest cost motorsports you can get into. Click Here to find out more!
