Run The Gauntlet
To "Run the gauntlet" in olden days is to take part in a form of corporal punishment in which the party judged guilty is forced to run between two rows of soldiers who strike out and attack them.
To "Run the Gauntlet" in Jacksonville FL is to challenge your driving skills and accuracy over a 12 acre professionally designed auto cross course.
Test your vehicle’s setup and hone your driving skills at one of our Open Track Days! Just bring your car and a SA2010 or newer helmet.
Each month The Gauntlet is reborn, we change up the course design so that you can enjoy a new experience and test your times against the rest of the field.
Safety & Preparation:
The Gauntlet reserves the right to refuse access to the track to anyone at anytime
Definition of Flags:

Checkered: Your session is over – finish this lap and return to the paddock

Blue with yellow stripe: Check your mirrors – a faster car is about to pass you
