San Diego BMW CCA autocross 4/28

Cancelled Qualcomm event management has told us that we will be unable to use the lot on our April 28th date. They have offered a make up date in May, which is being considered. The website and facebook will be updated once a decision is made.

More details for more Upcoming Events can be found on our Calendar page.

Spring Fling Autocross Registration open now

The next San Diego Chapter Autocross is coming up on Sunday April 28th. Our course will be in the South East lot, were we can lay out a fast and fun course for you and your car.

Online registration is open now until April 24th at http://sdbmwcca.motorsportreg.com

We are back to daylight savings time, so we can take 100 drivers. Spots are open to all car types on a first come first served basis. As always, be sure to arrive by 7:30 Sunday morning to confirm your spot and get through Tech and Registration on time.

Spring Fling 2013 Autocross
A day of tire-twisting fun awaits you on the SE Lot on April 28th!

Online Registration is open from
April 7th-23rd at MotorsportReg

The first 20 non-BMWs to register are guaranteed a spot

While we’ll have only one day to fling some springs this year, we guarantee you’ll have plenty of fun with us on April 28th at Qualcomm’s SouthEast Lot! Speaking of springs, Spring Forward means that we have another hour of daylight and another 20 open spots! Register early to reserve your spot. We will offer registration on-site if any openings are left, but there is no online waiting list and no guarantee that spots will be available.
We’ll run rain or shine (if the lot is wet, we’ll let it slide). Now is a good time to thank BMW of South County for another full year of support for our Autocross program. With online registration, local drivers, long-distance travelers and non-BMW competitors can reserve their spot, so don’t miss it. You can register between April 7th-23rd. Online registration opens 3 weeks before the event and closes just a few days before. Don’t wait until the last minute because it’s still first-come, first-served (with no online waiting list) and we only have 80 spots. We’ll still offer registration on-site for any remaining slots.
The $65 entry fee includes breakfast items, lunch and beverages. You can pay online if you register in advance at MotorsportReg,or register on site with cash or check if you wait. You must be a BMW CCA member to participate, and you can join online at BMW CCA in advance. Please print and bring your membership confirmation if you have not yet received your BMW CCA membership card. We check membership of all participants at the gate. Our Chapter autocross policy gives priority to members who are driving BMWs or MINIs. Members driving non-BMWs will be allowed to participate if space is available. If we still have openings after online registration, we will allow registration on-site on a first-come, first-served basis.
NOTE: The helmet standard changed in January to require Snell 2005 or 2010 ratings. Check yours to be sure it’s up to date—rentals are available but limited.
When you arrive:
  1. Stop at the gate to sign the waiver and notify the Gate Greeter. All participants must show their BMW CCA membership card. You will receive a wrist band and you must wear the wrist band at all times during the event. If you registered online, your name will be checked off the pre-registration list. If you did not register online you will receive a numbered card at the gate in the order of your arrival; take it to the Registration table. There is no guarantee that spots will be available for those who wait to register the day of the event.
  2. Empty all loose items from your car, fill out the Tech card, bring it with you, and then go through the Tech Line and have your car inspected. If your car and helmet pass inspection a Tech sticker will be affixed to your windshield and your helmet.
  3. Take theTech card (and Gate card if not pre-registered) to Registration to get checked off for pre-registration or pay your $65 entry fee. You will receive car numbers, run group color stickers, and a lunch ticket. Place the run group color stickers on the upper left side of your windshield near the Tech sticker. Place the numbers on your side rear windows. (If two people are sharing a car the number of the other driver must be covered during timed runs. Make sure you pick up a run group schedule and course map.
  4. Your entry fee of $65.00 includes breakfast muffins, one lunch, and unlimited beverages. Additional lunches can be purchased at Registration for $7 each.

7:00 AM Tech and registration opens
7:30 AM Onsite registration closes
8:20 AM Tech closes. No cars will be inspected or allowed to run after this time.

Car Classifications:
4C ALL 4 cylinder BMW models (except E30 M3)
6S Stock 6 or 8 cylinder BMWs up to 295 stock horsepower
6M Modified 6 or 8 cylinder BMWs up to 295 stock horsepower
TS Stock 6-8-12 cylinder BMWs over 295 stock hp, M cars before 1994
TM Modified 6-8-12 cylinder BMWs over 295 stock hp, M cars before 1994
MS Stock M cars, 1994 - present
MM Modified M cars, 1994 - present
MC ALL R-class MINI Cooper models
X ALL non-BMW or MINI models
G Gold Class for all Instructors, opt-in drivers, and cars with slick tires
Stock classes permit any size wheel and tire; non-stock shock absorbers, bushings and strut braces; any brake pad material (brakes must be stock-size), any air filter or cold air intake or cat-back exhaust; and naturally-aspirated cars may use aftermarket engine management software. Tires must be 140 treadwear rated or higher in Stock. ANY other performance modification, including but not limited to springs, “R”-compound tires, and engine software for turbocharged/supercharged cars, puts the car in Modified. Non-DOT tires (i.e. slicks) on any car place it in Gold Class. All cars must be under a 92 dB noise level to be driven at Qualcomm - and we'll be checking. Our car classes are kept simple so we can use the honor system.
Women drivers and Novices are classified based upon the car they are driving. We also award a Women's Class trophy to the woman with the fastest time, and two Novice trophies to the two fastest novices. This means women and novices will be eligible for multiple trophies. For example, a very fast novice could win a novice trophy and a trophy in his car class. Remember, you are only a novice for the first and second time you autocross, and if you win a trophy you are now a ringer, not a novice.

See you at Qualcomm Stadium!

Bad news from the autocross boss:

Hello autocrossers--
We were blindsided yesterday with an email from Qualcomm event management stating that we have been bumped from our April 28th date. This is out of character for Qualcomm so it was very surprising to say the least. We have been offered a make up date in the second weekend of May, which we are considering. I’ll update you as soon as we make a decision. For those that have already registered for the April 28th date, Jim is tending to the situation and will be in touch shortly.
I am very sorry that this happened! I hope that no one is inconvenienced and I hope that you all will be able to join us for the next event.
tl;dr - Event canceled. Possible reschedule.
Appreciate 0
