It's probably determined by region, don't

Hawaii, no rolling allowed!

I think I've seen a guy go around the course on a bicycle (I know he rides it around the pits a lot too), but I think rollerblades are allowed. Then again, Donnie got in trouble for trying to go around on his skateboard so who knows (I don't understand... you can go 60 around the course and take out all the cones but you can't go 15 on a skateboard, *shrug*).

Yeah, I thought all skateboarders were drug addicted, child abusing, axe murders.

Actually skating, scooting, etc are not allowed during course walks. It could help you to percieve the course at speed and give you a feeling for what the car will do on course. (To varying degrees, of course) Each club is different, but I am sure that when I go into the ol' rule book tonight it will say that for course walks you have to actually walk.

Ahhhhhh... well somehow (not sure exactly how) it never crossed my mind that they wanted you to have to not learn the course at speed, but pick it up when you start driving it. Now that I think about it, it makes sense since it is all about the skill and prediction in order to win.

If you are autocrossing a SCCA event you are not allowed to use any type of wheeled conveyance to walk the course. No roller blades, bicycles, etc. An exception can be made for a person in a wheelchair, but that person must navigate the course under their own power if at all possible.

Sorry, you have to walk the cross.

Post Autocross question. Are you allowed to....

....use roller blades when they allow us to walk the course? They do it for tracks...what about coned courses?

The reason I'm asking is coz my girlfriend got me one of those aluminum in-line scooters from www.sharperimage.com It's pretty neat!



It's a heck of a lot faster than walking and they can coast for a long time on flat surfaces.

hmm, autocross courses usually aren't that big.

I know at the recent one here in Detroit Marius, Fred and Myself had time to walk the course three times.

I dont know if they'd let you out there with one of those, but Im not sure I see the advantage unless you have WAY longer courses than us.....

I think it totally depends on your club. We just started allowing rollerblades on the course "walk-throughs". It helps a little, mainly in that I can see the course more times in the time allowed (5x in blades vs. 2x on foot).
I say ask your club big-wigs.

Actually, I do see a slight advantage. Theose scooters can get going pretty quick and I can understand the racing lines better.

I believe the no skates/boards/bicycles rule is strictly a safety thing so walking people aren't getting run over by rolling people. It's the same reason many cities don't allow bikes on sidewalks - too much speed differential.
