Event Description

Join the Golden Gate Chapter for our beginner autocross school! This event is reserved for students with minimal to no autocross experience. If you've never autocrossed before, this event is for you!

We are limiting the student count to just 30 drivers to maximize your seat time and to give you gobs of one on one personal instruction.

What's included:

  • Over THREE hours of driving time and 1:1 Instruction
  • Lunch, snacks, and liquid refreshments
  • A $50 credit on your MSR account to be applied to your next GGC Autocross event
  • More grins than any human can handle in one day.

The format for this event will be very simple. Two groups, one drives, one works, swap, repeat. We'll have a challenging course set up with several elements designed to teach you specific autocross skills and performance driving techniques. We do not require previous high performance driver training or experience, but participation in a Car Control Clinc or similar training is beneficial. No special car preparation is needed.

Our events are very social and we welcome all makes of cars, not just BMWs and MINI.
