If you're not winning thousands of dollars, it might be best to take the cautious route. Without that reinforcement, you're front end really doesn't have the reinforcement it needs. I'd look for reasons why you shouldn't more than why it's probably okay.

Will it probably be okay? IDK. An autocross puts a bit of stress on things. I'd at least wait until someone can say definitely that you'll be fine or not fine. To me, it just doesn't sound like a good idea. You should post a picture of Marisa Tomei to thank Stinger for the warning!
I think dmax is right.

A few months ago I used my car without the reinforcement but only to go to work and back one day and everything was ok but.... An autocross is a very different thing.

safety first!!!!
