Hat Tip to Larry N.
I really enjoyed reading Just Accept It: Autocross Isn’t Racing from Bark M. - an experienced autocrosser who's competed and trophied at national level. It rang true to someone like me who switched to endurance racing after 12 years of autocrossing. Autocross is a fantastic foundation for your driving skills and definitely something that everyone should do at least a couple of times a year. It's just not something that anyone should call "racing". Racing is when cars fighting for 51st position on the track go at each other -- a lot like this.
