FAST (Fun Autocross Society of Tampa) is preparing for a series of autocross events at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport, beginning Saturday, Jan. 27, but unlike most racing-based events, sports cars aren’t a must, according to Loren Williams, the director of the organization. He cited examples of drivers, like above, who’ve taken old Crown Victorias and used them in events. “You don’t need a special car, anything that’s safe and reliable enough to drive every day, and isn’t a top-heavy vehicle like an SUV or minivan can be driven in autocross competition,” Williams explained. “And if it’s not ‘fast,’ who cares?”
‘FAST’ ACTION

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to start your engines.

FAST (Fun Autocross Society of Tampa) is preparing for a series of autocross events at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport, beginning Saturday, Jan. 27. FAST, an autocross club based in the Tampa area that started in 2007, and has roots with another club dating back to about 1998, according to Loren Williams, the director of the organization, made its debut at the decades-old facility last summer and hosted a second event in the fall.

Now, FAST is ready to rev its engines for at least five more events in 2018.
