The Fairfield County Sports Car Club is organized to promote the preservation, ownership and operation of sports cars, to provide and regulate events for sports cars and their owners, to promote motoring for pleasure and for sport, and to encourage careful and skillful driving. In addition, FCSCC gives back to the community through charitable efforts and events.
The Fairfield County Sports Car Club, Inc. (FCSCC), established in 1956, is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization and one of the oldest continuously-operating independent motorsports clubs in the country. FCSCC provides an outlet for automobile enthusiasts to train and test their limits behind the wheel in a safe environment through an annual autocross rookie school and a series of autocross events. The club also hosts a teen driver training program; the past several have been a Tire Rack Street Survival school. FCSCC's 100+ members have a long-standing history of supporting the local community through education for young drivers and financial support of local charities, including the Special Olympics Connecticut.
An autocross is a timed competition in which drivers navigate, one at a time, through a defined course with emphasis on car handling and driver skill, rather than sheer horsepower or maximum speed. Events group cars by using a classing system which allows almost any vehicle, from a typical economy sedan to a purpose-built sports car, to compete with vehicles of similar performance capability. FCSCC provides newcomers with experienced instructors, has special classes for those new to the sport, and has year-long championships for each class, including three rookie classes. FCSCC also hosts an autocross rookie school every spring.
