I'm bored at school and came up with the thought of Autocross. I have an automatic 06 ls coupe and thinking, is racing autocross just asking for trouble with an automatic?

There are some people I've seen do it but not many. Agita_san does in HI with his auto.

The higher the gear the lower the torque. AutoX is all about quick turns and fast acceleration. Thus, anything but low gear on an auto would be pointless. It very rare for me to touch 3rd. I think I've done it twice this year and once ended up a mistake (too fast!!).

I've been thinking I want to try a race in my sedan but don't know too much about the sport. Can some one enlighten me on rules or what ever you need to do to qualify or what is it????
