About this event
2023 GVC Autocross Series at Genesee Valley Kart Track!
Autocross is back! Genesee Valley Kart Track is host Genesee Valley Chapter BMWCCA for three events this summer, all Genesee Valley all the time. These events will all be the typical BMW "just for laughs" events, we don't want to see your PAX, we're not doctors. There may or may not be booby prizes at each event for fastest (or slowest) time of the day, most entertaining run, or anything else the organizers decide on a whim. Bring your A game and have some fun.
We are intially limiting these events to 30 participants, once we hold the first event we may expand that slightly for second and third event. These should fill quickly so get your registrations in early!
This is our first foot back in the door at GVCKC and we want to make sure we can keep returning so we will be enforcing some strict conduct rules pertaining to respecting the facility. We're all just in it for the fun but we won't let anyone spoil the party for the group.

Car Tech Review
Pre-event car preparation is strongly recommended, please ensure brake fluid has been changed recently, brake pads have good thickness, tires are in good condition, and the car is mechanically sound.
A technical review will be performed on each car. We use a "roving tech" system, so cars will be checked in the paddock area. Items that are checked during tech include:
- All loose objects removed from car interior and trunk, including driver floor mat
- Rapid Throttle return
- Battery secure
- Firm Brake Pedal
- No play in Wheel bearings
- Adequate tire tread (no cord showing)
- Helmet within one generation of current Snell rating. Must have hologram with SA or M 2015 or 2020. Limited number of loaner helmets will be available for drivers that don't have a Snell-certified helmet.
The site for all events will be the Genesee Valley Kart Club at 2123 Lakeville Rd, Avon, NY 14414. PLEASE be respectful of the property, we are extremely lucky to have secured this site and we hope to be able to come here for many years to come.
