Demonstration races took place at Perris Auto Speedway in 2017 to showcase the capability of the series and the reaction was incredibly positive. President of FX Autocross Robert Myers shared,
“The initial races in 2017 were great. The crowd loved seeing the action packed events and also the unique use of an interior road course instead of just the oval. We are excited to have this be one of our major tracks during our inaugural 2018 season.”
The track utilized by FX Autocross has included the front straight giving the crowd a close look of the European designed crosskarts and sprinter buggy. From there the vehicles take a decreasing radius turn into the infield where a lot of exciting passes took place. With a total of 6 exciting corners the stands were always packed when the vehicles hit the track. “The crowd at Perris Auto Speedway is the best. When we get out there we have a couple thousand crazy fans going wild for karts and buggies similar to what they see in the desert but specialized for this type of racing. It’s great.” stated vehicle manufacturer Igor Palagin of Fast & Speed USA.
