BCA AX3/WMC AX1 - ORP (Autocross on Track)

Oregon Raceway Park

About this event

This event is co-hosted by Bridge City Autosports (http://www.bcautosports.club) and Willamette Motor Club (http://www.wmclub.org).

BCA AX#3/WMC AX#1 will be held at Oregon Raceway Park (Grass Valley, OR) on Saturday April 24th and Sunday April 25th, 2021. Saturday is for points for WMC, Sunday is for points for BCA. Recall that both clubs drop the lowest two events for the year, so if you do not make it, it will not count against you.

First and foremost: We need a majority of people signed up by the end of February/beginning of March to ensure that the event happens. I know we like to wait and see about weather. That's simply not an option here. If you sign up early, there's a chance it will rain. If you wait to sign up so you can watch the weather, the event won't happen. Please sign up. We expect this event will draw some people that aren't autocrossers. That's awesome! Also means you members better sign up ASAP. 

  • Start time and schedule will be the same as a normal Bridge City Autosports event - there is only one registration period for everyone in the morning from 7am-8:30am, we will begin running at around 9am. A full schedule will be posted later.
  • We will run the full track tying together sweeping corners with autocross elements along the straights.
  • CAMPING, TOILETS, AND SHOWERS ARE AVAILABLE ON-SITE AT NO CHARGE.
  • No walk-ups will be accepted.
  • Roll bars are highly recommended in open-top cars
  • Passengers will be allowed in all closed-top vehicles, or open-top vehicles with roll bar/harnesses. Hardtops do not count as a closed-top as they do not provide structural rigidity. Open-top cars without rollbar/harnesses may only have an approved instructor ride along. 

This will be a fun event - but it will pose some challenges. Number one challenge is the course walk. This will be less like autocross in that it will not be a parking lot full of cones, and you wont have to think about what direction to go. We will do a single parade lap before beginning the day, and that will be the course walk. We will make sure that things are visible from a distance before arriving at them - LOOK AHEAD. We will make sure that cones are marked clearly, and not placed in spots to trick you when coming around a potentially blind corner. We will do our best to make sure that things flow.

We will have a cap of 65 people. We will only be breaking up into two run groups. Work sessions will be a bit longer. Keep in mind that this is a several mile course, so your actual time in grid will be reduced because you will spend more time on course. Conversely, it will be increased by the number of cars in grid. That should mean that the wait time between finishing and starting the next run will be fairly similar to a normal event. 

We will shuttle people out to their work stations. We expect that due to course design there will hopefully be less cone action than normal - nothing overly tight. This will help keep things flowing. We will also have single flaggers spread about between stations in case of spinouts.

May it be your best year ever, and always remember to enjoy the ride!

Please remember to have your vehicle ready for tech inspection the morning of the event, if you do not participate in the annual tech program. 

There will be a lunch break around 12:30pm, lunch will NOT be provided at this event.
