The National Autocross Championship is ready for the start of the 2024 season. The Autocross Sports Association in Action confirmed the first date for this Sunday, April 28 from 10 a.m. 

The stage of the day will be the track of the Chamber of Livestock in Pier de San Carlos, and where a very demanding test is expected in complicated terrain and that can present important variables depending on how the climate is behaved in the area.

To make this day more attractive, in addition to the national drivers of the different categories, Panamanian pilots of great renown and quality will be participating. The idea is to give more competitiveness to the day and to bonfire Costa Ricans. Among the most outstanding Panamanians are Hernando Hernandez in the 6 cylinders, is the current runner-up channeler and has multiple titles throughout a 30-year career. There will also be José Isaac Borrero, the current Panamanian champion of the 8 cylinders, among others.

The National Autocross Championship will be held in the 4, 6 and 8 cylinder categories, in addition to the Free classification. Each competition has a total of two heats per category and one of the Free to close the programming.

The 2024 season consists of a total of four races, which will define the national champions.

The season’s programming is as follows:

1. Date 1 April 28

2. Second Date June 9

3. Third Date September 1st

4. Final November 3

We’ll have a pretty competitive season, Costa Rica has very well-prepared cars and we see that year after year on the track. “For this first date we invite people to spend a very good day with family, they can wear awnings, ice sheets, grills and all to enjoy the piques and speed,” said Alejandro Rodríguez, president of ADDA.

Tickets for this date have a value of 5,000 colones and can be purchased on the platform and also at the entrance of the event on Sunday.

The National Autocross Championship is endorsed by the Costa Rican Federation of Motor Motors and Motors (FECOM).
