Florida Corvette Club Autocross Events

The Florida Corvette Club in central Florida brings together Corvette enthusiasts, providing fellowship among Corvette owners through their events.

Club activities include:
  • Car Cruise shows
  • Autocross events
  • Club Social nights
  • Road Trips
  • and monthly club meetings

At their latest autocross event last weekend, an AmpliVox S602R Megaphone was used to direct the crowd, make announcements and call the cars to the starting line.

An autocross is a timed competition in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course on either a sealed or an unsealed surface, racing against the clock. It is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe competition and active participation. It also allows the Corvette owners to put their cars and their driving skills to the test.

Autocross courses are typically one to two kilometres long and tend to place demands on car handling and driver skill rather than on engine power and outright speed. Courses may be temporary and marked by traffic cones or be permanent tracks with approval by a motorsport body.

"It worked great!", said Don Hershiser, President of the Florida Corvette Club.

The sponsoring club did not have a megaphone so we let them use it to call cars to the starting line. We do multiple car shows and Autocross events each month, and will always be bringing the AmpliVox megaphone along."
