The LSC BMW CCA Drivers Event Committee needs to keep the Lonestar Chapter of the BMW CCA finically viable for this event. As such they are going to wait until April 1st to see the number of racers signed up. If a tough finical decision must be made and you did signup on or prior April 1st your card will not be charged. If enough racers have signed up to make the finical goals and you did signup on or prior April 1st your card will be charged. For those who sign up after April 1st, your credit card will be charged when you sign up.
Bottomline: sign up now and your card will not be charge until the decision point of April 1st. Your signup is telling the LSC BMW CCA Drivers Event Committee you want to make the Club Race part of this event to happen. What you can do is generate interested amongst the racer community you are a part of to participant in this event, even if they are racing non-BMW chassis (E-mail for more details).
