Welcome to Leewood
Autograss is a non-contact motorsport that takes place on an oval (approximately 400 metre) track using a natural soil surface. Due to the close nature of the racing, thrills and spills are never far away. There are several differing classes of car, from near standard minis or small hatchbacks through to space-framed single seaters with monster V8 or twin motorbike power! Up to 8 cars start on a straight-line grid and race over short 4-8 lap races. Please see the "About Autograss" link in the left hand menu to find out more about our sport.
Autograss is very much a family focused sport - with racing for men, lady and junior (ages 10-16) drivers. Leewood is a very friendly, family orientated club - welcoming both racing and social members from across the Greater Manchester and North West region - please see the "Joining" link in the left hand menu to find out how to join us!

TIPS FOR NEW RACERS
Always buy the best safety kit you can afford
Make sure whoever is going to race the car practices getting out from either side it could help in an emergency
Again each driver must be comfortable when strapped in ,not stretching to reach the
pedals or being to close to the steering wheel.
practice practice wherever you can.
never just jack your racer up without using supports stands before getting underneath,
have a pre race check list and go through it BEFORE you leave home.
Of course these are just a few tips there are many more.
