Step 1
Visit the GGC Classification System to select a driver number and classify your car for your first 2019 event with us, or to verify your classification for this event. The GGC system at is the keeper of the unique driver numbers and car data and every driver must have their own account, driver number, and car classification from the separate GGC system. 

General information, forums, etc here:
Access the online classification system here:

WARNING: If you fail to complete this step before you register, and/or we cannot match the information you provide to an active classification at, you will be placed on hold until you do. We will not process your payment until we can verify your driver number and car classification and your spot is not guaranteed until we process your payment. If you do not classify before registration closes, or before it sells out, your registration will be automatically cancelled. Our events often sell out quickly. To avoid missing out, take care of this in advance and make certain you provide accurate information when completing your registration.

Step 2
Read ALL of the content in this event listing to make sure you understand the event requirements, including: event location, driver numbers/classifications, waivers, membership requirements, payments, cancellation policy, tech inspection checklist, timeline, helmet requirements, waitlist, and guest policy. Additional information will be provided in the confirmation e-mail you receive after signing up and even more will be sent after registration closes.

Step 3
BMWCCA membership is required to participate. If you're not an active member of BMWCCA, you will need to join or renew your membership. We prefer you do this yourself at, but if you like, you may select a non-member registration option later in the sign-up process and we'll take your money and pass it along to BMWCCA National on your behalf. Please make sure you understand the cancellation/refund policy described on the next page.

Step 4
We will charge your credit card to hold your spot. We see a fair amount of "declined by your bank" transactions each month, so please be certain your billing information is current. If we cannot charge you, we cannot guarantee a spot for you at this event. 

NOTE: We do not accept on-site signups. If you show up at the event without being registered here, you will not be allowed to participate.


  • LUNCH IS OPTIONAL. If you want us to order you a sandwich, be sure to make your selection on the registration page.
  • This event is private and for registered participants and accompanied guests only. No one will be permitted entry to the site after 08:15am.
  • Snell 2010 or newer certified helmets (M or SA) are required for all GGC autocross events. Check the sticker inside your helmet and make sure it is valid.

We have a small number of loaners available if you need to borrow a helmet - no charge.

Event Description

Our autocrosses are a competitive environment where a cone track is setup in a big parking lot or airfield. We put cars into classes based on a formula (considering weight, torque, modifications, and several other factors), and drivers compete against other cars within their class. Though there is an element of risk, hazards to participants and property are not expected to exceed those encountered in normal, legal highway driving. Due to the length of our courses we allow only one to two cars on the course at any one time (opposite sides). Cars race against the clock, not side-by-side.

We do not require previous high performance driver training or experience, but participation in a Car Control Clinic or similar training is highly recommended. First timers and inexperienced autorcrossers will be assigned a driver coach to ensure they get the most out of their autocross day.

No special car preparation is needed, in fact, we recommend you bring the car you drive on a daily basis. Doing so will give you a greater appreciation for your car's capabilities and improve your driving skills in the process.

Car classes are split into three run groups. Participants drive one session, work one session and have the other session off. Every participant (except those 65 or older) is given a work assignment which may include: course workers, trailer workers, start, finish, and grid positions, or driver coaches.

Generally, drivers can expect 6-7 runs per event depending on many factors including course length and registration count, but there is no guarantee on number of runs. Your first run is a practice run. Successive runs are official and your fastest timed run is your fastest run of the day. Downing cones results in the addition of one second to your time for each cone hit - hitting cones is bad for your times! Often we have time available at the end of the day for "fun runs" which are unofficial post-competition timed runs. During fun runs you may drive your own car or swap cars with friends... it's a good opportunity to beat your buddy's best time in his car!

Our events are very social and we welcome anyone and all makes of cars, not just BMWs and MINI. Unlike some other clubs, we don't limit registrations from other marques. Everyone has the same chance of getting in!

Click the button below to get signed up! Our program is very popular and events have been selling out quickly, so get signed up early. We can accept a maximum of 100 drivers.

Event cost is $55 per participant. An optional sandwich lunch is available for $8/$11 depending on sandwich choice.
