Auto Cross in the Qualcomm (western) parking lot

Through the SDBMWCCA

Hello Autocrossers:

Those of you on the Autocross Update email list are getting this news first:

After a lot of anticipation, the San Diego Chapter now offers advance registration for our autocross events online! Our next event is the “Sunday Drive Autocross” on May 27th, the weekend of Memorial Day, in the big West Lot.

We’ll have a long, wide, fast course to let your BMW really stretch its legs. Our intent is to open registration online about 3 weeks before an autocross and close it a week before the event (or when it fills up). Registration is now open for this event, and it will close on May 19th.

There will be no waiting list; if you miss advance registration (and we still have openings), you’ll be able to register the day of the event as before (still first-come, first-served). We are guaranteeing a slot for the first 10 non-BMWs, whether it’s online or on site. Confirmations will be emailed so you’re sure that you’re in if you register online.

Registrations are still accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, but this will eliminate the early morning lineup and the uncertainty about getting one of our limited openings. For fairness to everybody, the start date of advance registration for future autocrosses will be published in Fahren Affairs and on the website. No registrations will be accepted before that date. Advance registration will close one week before each autocross event or when all openings are filled.

The $50 entry fee is payable by credit card using a secure connection via a BMW CCA-approved website.Online Registration Process:

It’s easy to register online for San Diego Chapter Autocross events. We have selected MotorsportReg, a popular registration site for BMW Club events. As easy as 1-2-3:
