Autocross

Juan Larin's E36 M3

Autocross events are an all-forward motion-driving-skill contest. Each driver is individually timed to the thousandth of a second, over a short, miniature road-course clearly defined using traffic cones. Cars compete one at a time, in a class with similar cars. An event can be held on any flat paved surface, usually a parking lot, or airport apron or runway.

 

Autocross emphasizes driver skill and vehicle handling rather than just speed. The corners are tight, and there are lots of them, so the driving is exciting and challenging. Autocross speeds do not exceed those normally encountered in highway driving. The skills you learn and practice here; smooth transitions, enhanced braking, and skid correction, will have an immediate impact on improving the safety and skill of your street driving. Autocross is an excellent way to teach car-control to young drivers in a safe environment. A day of autocrossing is far safer for both car and driver than most people’s daily commute to work.

 

Autocross is also a very social sport, filled with some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. The camaraderie of the drivers is a special part of autocrossing that is profoundly satisfying.

Registration starts at 9:00 am, Driver’s meeting at 9:30 am, first car out by 10:00 am. We run for approximately 3 hours, rain or shine.

  • Cost for BMWCCA members: $30.00 per driver (must show membership card)
  • Cost for non-members: $40.00 (Or pay $48.00 for a year’s membership the day of the event, and you run for free. Pay member’s rate on the next events as long as you remain a member)

 Basic Rules:

  • Must have valid driver’s license.
  • Must have Snell 2005 rated or newer helmet – sticker/label must be visible on or in helmet.*
  • Anyone under 18 must have signed and notarized consent from parents or legal guardians. (Download and print)

 *We have a limited number of loaner helmets on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Driving Tours

979099

As a driving club with a passion for BMW’s, the Club provides many opportunities for various kinds of driving tours through its chapters. Each chapter can design driving events which best suit the needs of its members. Some chapters design tours which lead to a well-known historic landmark, or even an out-of-the-way geographic site. Members are often delighted to discover interesting places in their own state that they had never before visited or explored. A favorite scenic drive is one which ends at a local tavern or restaurant which enables the members to unwind after the long drive, and get to know each other better. The simplest form of Driving Tour involves an arranged meeting place—perhaps at a local parking lot—with an organizer leading the way on the prescribed driving tour. Rest stops at scenic vistas and overlooks provide the best chance to enjoy the scenery and camaraderie of the group. Any chapter member is capable of designing a driving tour—one is only limited by the scope of their creativity. The best driving tour gives members a chance to take in the surrounding scenery, experience their ultimate driving machine with their friends, and share their passion for BMW with their fellow chapter members.
