I have said it more times than I can remember the best way to make autocrossing more fun is by making it longer. Every year SCCA Sacramento hosts its annual Enduro autocross. The format for the weekend consists of Saturday being a practice day. Each driver gets three tries at a two lap course. Clocks are running, but scores are not tallied. Sunday every driver gets to run the same course, but it’s one shot, five lap winner take all run . If you DNF, hit a cone, get lost, etc well enjoy the rest of your laps because you’re done.
