Why You’ll Love It

Autocross is real Grass Roots Motorsport making it accessible and affordable to anyone who is interested in trying their hand at a discipline. CDMC pride ourselves at promoting and driving Autocross in the NE as an entry level to other Motor Sport disciplines.

  • Drivers from 14+
  • 9 classes based on car type and engine size
  • Cars released in Pairs or Singularly run
  • It is a Non-Contact Racing Discipline
  • Flexible format to accommodate various car types
  • Friendly atmosphere

Rating: 5 out of 5.


This is the easiest form of Motorsport to get involved in financially. Perfect for wanting to try before committing to other disciplines.


Rating: 5 out of 5.


Cars are matched in fair & even classes, based on engine size and type, so leads to competitive racing and times.


Rating: 5 out of 5.


I really appreciate the quality of the machinery entered and the format of the discipline.
