Grass Track

For one day a year the stars of Autograss make a switch to the tarmac at Northampton International Raceway to show off their sideways skills in a different arena.

Autograss is a hugely enjoyable and wildly spectacular sport enjoyed in fields and farmland all over Britain, with hundreds of drivers at every event. The sport is divided into no fewer than ten classes for saloons and “specials” with grids featuring everything from humble 1-litre Minis to extraordinary home-brewed concoctions such as tiny hatchbacks with 1200cc motorcycle engines in the back and specials with two such engines hooked up in a line or even a BriSCA F1-standard V8!

This mixture of cars makes for stunning sideways styles of racing in the short but spectacular sprints, with cars driven at impossible angles and often flying and climbing over each other when things get too close for comfort. Massive fields of competitors are assured, and with separate ladies and junior classes the whole family can share a car and get stuck in.

With the onset of winter the fields are often too muddy to allow competition, so each November the stars of the sport change tack and hit the tarmac at Northampton to show off their sideways skills.

These machines are always a marvel to behold at the NEC's Autosport International Show in the Live Action Arena. They have so much power and so little weight that they struggle to keep their front wheels on the floor down the straights.
