The morning session is for practice only, times will be recorded and posted but will not count towards the event competition. There will be 3-4 runs in the morning. The afternoon session is the actual competition that will count towards your season ending points. The number of runs in the afternoon will range from 3 to 5, depending on how the day is going and when the event is anticipated to finish.
There will be a lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions that will last 30-40 mintues. Lunch will NOT be provided. So please plan ahead and either bring a lunch or there will be a vendor on-site in which you can purchase food and beverages during the event. Water will be provided. NOTE: BBQs grills are strickly prohibitied unless they are allowed by the event chairman.
At the end of the event, there will be an awards ceremony in which we'll hand out awards based on the aftenroon session results. Awards will be given to the top 3rd drivers of each class. For example, a class consisting of 20 drivers will have 7 trophy positions. In addition to class trophies, an award will be given in the form of BimmerBucks. BimmerBucks are awarded for the top 3 trophy positions ( 3 - 1st, 2 - 2nd, and 1 - 3rd place). The top PAX BMW class driver will also receive 3 BimmerBucks. A new "NOVICE" group has been created for those that are new to Autocross. This is a new program to help our new drivers become more experienced drivers. More information can be found on our website, with regards to our Novice program. BimmerBucks redemption can be found on the club website www.rmcbmwcca.org , under the Autocross section.
Points will be awarded to each finishing position in your driving class. The best 4 out of 6 event finishes will be added up to determine what your season ranking is for the class. Each member will need to complete 4 events to qualify for an end-of-year award. Points are based on a indexing system that uses your raw time and your driving class handicap(PAX) to determine what your PAX time is. More information specific to how the PAX is calculated is found at rmcbmwcca.org within the Autocross Section.
Any specific questions with regards to registration, car classing or the event itself should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing everyone soon
