Spread the news! Another fun course will be ready for you and your best time on March
2nd in the West Lot. And thanks to our Patching Team, it should be a smooth course,
too! Time does march on, but we’re still on standard time and with the sun setting
early, we’re limited to 80 entries. 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.
Our thanks to BMW South County in El Cajon for renewing their support for our
Autocross Program for another year!
Note: We do run if it’s raining—you’ll learn more and your tires will wear less! The
helmet standard has changed to require Snell 2005 or 2010 ratings. Check yours
now to be sure it’s up to date—rentals are limited.
The entry fee is $65, including breakfast items, lunch and beverages. You can pay
online if you register in advance at http://sdbmwcca.motorsportreg.com, or with cash or
check if you wait to register onsite. You must be a BMW CCA member to participate,
and you can join online at www.bmwcca.org 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.
REMEMBER: IF REGISTERED ONLINE, BRING PROOF OF MEMBERSHIP AND
ARRIVE BY 7:30 (BEFORE ON-SITE CUT-OFF) TO KEEP YOUR RESERVED SPOT
When you arrive:
1. If you registered online, stop at the gate to sign the waiver and notify the Gate
Greeter. Your name will be checked off the pre-registration list. All participants must
show their BMW CCA membership card. Those who did not register online will receive
a numbered card at the gate in their order of 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, then go through the Tech Line and have your
car inspected. Bring your Tech card and you will receive Tech and helmet stickers.
3. Take Gate card and Tech card to Registration to get checked off for pre-registration
or pay your $65 entry fee. You will receive car numbers to place on your side windows.
4. If you don’t have a helmet, you can rent one from the club for $10.
5. Your entry fee of $65.00 includes one lunch and unlimited beverages. Additional
lunches can be purchased at Registration for $7 each.
Gates will open at 6:30am; tech and registration will open at 7:00am. Tech will close at
8:20am and no cars will be inspected or allowed to run after this time. There is a
mandatory drivers meeting at 8:30am and the course opens for runs at 9:00am.
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

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.
