Help me with my first rally!

Yaay! I'm going to my first rally in May (New Jersey). It's not a BMW-specific event, but it looks to be a good way to dip my toe in the water.

I'll be entering in the novice category with my '02 530i; she's in very good-to-great mechanical condition (interior and exterior in okay kip).

-How does the quarter-mile timed run work? Do I shift to Steptronic and what gear, etc . . . any details much appreciated. Is there a way to do some practice without being hauled to jail?

-I bought a Snell 2015 required helmet, so that's covered.

-Are there safety/cool things I can do to the car so it looks coolish and not dorky for a first-timer? I'm not, of course, buying a racing seat or anything at this point.
