Autocross possible after accident?

I've been interested in going to an autocross event, but I'm worried that my car may react poorly to it because I was in an accident recently.

I had to replace a wheel, tire, control arm, and the shock and spring in the right front corner. Although the repair job was done well (at a Mazda dealership), I don't want something bad to happen.

Does it sound like a good idea? Has anyone else done this?

Thanks for the help guys.

If they can give you the car back... I am sure it's fine. Nothing to worry about it.

Youre fine, race cars crash, and get put back together no problem(to a certain extent obviously)

Sounds like normal suspension damage that a high speed runoff on a gt track could cause, no biggie.
