August Auto-X #4 at NJ Expo Center

NJ Expo and Convention Center

About this event


        
     

Autocrossing has been a premier activity for the New Jersey Chapter from the beginning, and is open to drivers 18 years and older. If you have questions about what an autocross is or how the event is organized, please go here.  Each driver will get as many as 8-10 timed runs during the day. Your best time counts toward the competition. Each cone that is knocked down, or displaced from the box in which it stands, adds a 2 second penalty.

The NJ Expo Center lot allows courses that yield typical run times of about 45 seconds. Most drivers complete the course using 2nd gear.

Entry Fee: Pre-registration through the day before the event -- $50
                   Event-day registration -- $65
                   BMW CCA membership is required to participate and will be verified during registration.

If you are not a member, please go to the national BMW CCA website to join. You do not need to own or drive a BMW to join the club but you must be a member to participate in the autocross. If you become a first-time member of the BMW CCA within 60 days prior to this event you may email the registrar for a $25 credit toward the event.  Please email the receipt you receive from BMW CCA.  (Please note that this discount is not intended for renewals or those who were previously members.)

Our class system for BMWs is as follows:

80-99 points

Class B

60-79 points

Class C

40-59 points

Class D

20-39 points

Participant requirements: All drivers must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid driver's license. Helmets are required to participate and must be Snell 2010 or newer with a legible, holographic Snell sticker. Helmets that are only DOT labeled are not acceptable. A limited number of loaner helmets may be available. A car may be shared, but each driver must register. Also, please read the insurance liability release form. All participants and spectators will be required to sign this form at the event, and it is recommended that you read it before the event. (You do not need to bring the release form with you). Spectators who are minors must have a parent complete and sign the minor release form.

Vehicle requirements: All vehicles must undergo a "Self-Tech" prior to the event per the NJ BMW CCA website. At the event, vehicles may be subject to a spot-check to check for brake pedal travel, steering wheel play, secure wheel mountings, fluid leakage and looseness of components, like batteries.  Convertibles are acceptable at the event. BMW "X" vehicles (X1, X3, X4, X5, X6) are acceptable. If you wish to bring another marque SUV/SAV vehicle please email the registrar in advance for approval. Noise restriction: Cars with unmodified factory exhaust systems are acceptable. If your car is equipped with an after-market exhaust, event officials may evaluate your car to determine whether it conforms to the venue limitations.
