Overview

Autocross is a safe, low-speed motorsport where competitors drive against the clock to turn in the best times as they navigate a driving course defined by orange parking cones in a large, open lot. Our NCC Autocross Points events are a great way for new and experienced autocross participants to learn more about autocross and improve their driving performance. Come join us for a fun and educational day filled with safe but adrenaline raising motorsport.

 

Thank you for choosing to autocross with us!

_________________________________________

 

The NCC Autocross program uses a BMW-centric customized classing structure which pits your BMW or MINI against similar performance models in 3 levels of trim: Showroom, Tuner, and Modified. There is also a simple classing structure for non-BMW competitors.  You can check out the full details at www.nccautocross.com.

Non-BMW Classing

There are five non-BMW classes, X1, X2, X3, X4 and X5. Class X5 is reserved for all non-BMWs with R-Compound tires (defined as having a treadwear rating less than 200). The remaining classes are based on vehicle displacement and modified according to the rules below. 

 

X1 = 5.0 Liters and up and all electric vehicles (Non-BMW 1)

X2 = 3.7 - 4.9 Liters (Non-BMW 2)

X3 = 2.6 - 3.6 Liters (Non-BMW 3)

X4 = 2.5 Liters or less (Non-BMW 4)

X5 = R-Compound Tire Cars Only (no matter engine size) (Non-BMW 5)

 

After the base group is determined from the above table, move up one group as follows:

  • Increase one group if engine uses forced induction (either factory or aftermarket).
  • Increase one group if engine is rotary.

 

X5 is specifically reserved for cars with competition tires no matter what engine the car is equipped with.

 

Examples:

  • A 2018 Mazda Miata (2.0) would be in X4.  However, a 2018 Fiat 124 Spyder (1.4) which is essentially the same car would be in X3 due to the turbocharger.
  • A 2010 Subaru WRX STI (2.5L) moves up from X4 to X3 because it has forced induction. Even factory forced induction, such as in this case, causes a car to move up 1 Group.
  • A 2010 Chevy Camaro V6 (3.6) would be in X3.  A V8 (6.2) would be in X1 no matter the trim (LT, LS, SS, ZL1, etc.).  The same car with R-Compound tires would complete in X5 no matter the engine size.
  • A 2008 Mazda RX-8 (1.3L) would be in X4, but is an X3 car because of its rotary engine. If the same RX-8 competes with R-Compound tires, it is in X5.
