Anyone can participate in autocrosses. You don't need a high performance car to do it. Many people attend with their stock cars. The variety of cars ranges from stock Honda Fits all the way to purpose built non-street legal monsters. Either way, you'll be classed based on your car and what mods you have.

Autocrosses, IMO, are very safe. You rarely exceed 60MPH. There is always a lot of runoff room in case you do mess up. This is my 1st year attend autocrosses, and I've been to 3 events so far. I highly recommend you to join the BMWCCA (if you have not already), and sign up for an event with your local chapter. Usually after the 1st event, you'll be hooked.
