The HPDE/TT guys I know well, have a very hard time with autocrossing because everything happens too quickly. We don't chalk the courses, so they have a hard time finding their way around, by the time they do they've taken their 4/5/6 runs and its time to go home. The next time they come back, it's a totally different course and they have to start all over again. On a road course, the track never changes and they get 30mins per session to get it right, perhaps 15-20 tries at every corner, and they're easily identifiable as well.

Plus, autocrossers typically start at a younger age and learn the limits of their car early on and get acclimated to looking at a corner and disecting it within 2s in their head.

IMO of course...
