Sea of Cones : A Documentary About Autocross

When people find out that I race my car, they think of something like NASCAR or other track type of racing. When I mention Autocross it is often followed by confusion or misconception. Trying to explain a parking lot full of cones and driving your car around them, does not do it justice. You really have to see it to appreciate it I thought.

Well, I found this nice video someone put together for their cinematography class project. It does an excellent job of describing the sport, who participates, what age groups, what type of cars, some basic rules, and quality footage of the events.

Enjoy... and if you like what you see, check out for more information on SOLO racing.
