This Is What Autocrossing in Your Living Room Sofa Looks Like

Watch this Jeep Cherokee passenger slide around like crazy at the autocross. See, the Jeep Cherokee guys are on a tight racing budget and had to cut corners and keep the stock passenger seat. Even riding on that cushy seat might have been OK... except they forgot to fully bolt it in. It doesn't help that this Jeep has a supercharger, weighs only 2,700 lbs and rides on fat, sticky Hoosiers:

It placed Top 10 out of 106 cars at the last autocross and embarrassed many sports cars in the process. The chicks really dig the monstrous wheel lift too:

Give these Jeep Cherokee guys a Like on Facebook -- maybe if enough people do it, they'll finally be able to afford a race seat for their passengers too.


  1. Is there no tech at most autocrosses? That looks like a good way to get killed.

  2. If a tech didn't catch it the rider should have pointed it out....things like this could ruin it for the rest of us.

  3. To be fair, the rider obviously did not full tighten his harness, right? Tossing 200 lbs around in any seat is going to look bad. You two need to relax!

  4. The video was only meant to amuse. Not intended as a referendum on what autocross tech should and should not include ;)
