About this event
Join the BMWCCA - Golden Gate Chapter at Crows Landing for another Fun Run Autocross
This is a fun-run style event, but we will have the timing system up and running.
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.
Our events are very social and we welcome 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!
Event cost is $75 per participant for members, $133 for non-members. Click the button below and get signed up!
