The MM Drivers’ Handbook

mm_mby Joey Klimchuk, minor additions by Jake Thiewes

This handbook is designed to show prospective members what Madison Motorsports is all about. It describes the activities and events our members take part in. It also includes everything you need to know to get involved in MM and get started up in autocross, which can seem somewhat complicated from the outside. As well as information about autocross events, it also delves very briefly into driving techniques and working with different automotive technologies. In short, this handbook is an extremely brief primer to give you an idea of what participating in motorsports with MM will be like, and gives you the information you need to get started.

What is Madison Motorsports?
Madison Motorsports is a group of James Madison University students and alumni, dedicated to learning to drive faster and safer. Members do not take part in street racing or other illegal on-road driving. Instead we compete in a variety of motorsport oriented activities. Most popular is autocross, but we also work, spectator and drive at tracks like Summit Point and VIR (Virginia International Raceway). Each year we host a car show and have frequent”wrench days.” We go karting every semester, and have cruises and cookouts. You do not need a car to participate in MM, all you need is an interest in motorsports!
