Sandlapper AutoX 2023- Michelin Proving Grounds

Michelin Proving Grounds

About this event

Join us for our second Autocross on the Black Lake at the Michelin Proving Grounds. This is an all day event, and we will run rain or shine. The Peachtree Chapter will be helping us out, they know how these are done and we are very appreciative. This will be a real Autocross, you will be required to help throughout the day. We will be limiting entries so we can get each of you as many runs as we possibly can. Lunch is included in your registration fee, and we will eat on site.

It is not required that you enter a BMW, and convertibles are allowed.

Please read all of the following carefully, before you begin registration, we need you to do a few things to get the class your car should run in, and have a full understanding of what we are doing.

Vehicle Class:

You must determine your vehicle's class BEFORE registering.  The classification worksheet is linked below.  If you have gone through the classification worksheet and need clarification on your vehicle's classification, please contact the registrar before event registration closes.  You must classify your vehicle correctly to receive any points towards series standings. If you don't care to be classed, select "other" when asked for car class.


Once you figure out your class, read both of the following;

AX_Terminology_and_FAQ_2021-02-05 (1).docx

AX_Timelines_and_Duties_2019-03-10 (1).docx

We will be providing car numbers for all entrants. Numbers are to be placed on both rear side windows. If you are sharing a car, both sets of numbers must be on the windows.

A catered lunch is included in your registration fee. You will recieve a meal ticket in your folder. Additional tickets may be purchased at check in for $15 each. Children under 10 may eat for free. 

If you wish to come up Saturday, the Crown Plaza has given us a block of rooms at a reduced rate. You can book rooms HERE. The Sandlapper Chapter BMW Clubs of America Group Room Block  Make sure to check date(s) and indicate whether you are planning on staying one or two nights. You must book your room by February 4 to take advantage of the special rate.

Once we check your classing and registration information we will adjust your registration status from "new" to either confirmed or waitlisted. We will move waitlisted people to confirmed without notice should we have cancellations. If you fail to read the above documents, and your registration comes in incomplete, we will not move you to confirmed, and should the event fill before you make corrections, you could end up on the waitlist. So, read the info

INSTRUCTORS- Yes we are charging you, but you will have the same number of runs as everyone else. If we need you, we will try to have you work with someone in the opposite group. Instructors will not need to shag cones.!!!

Check in at the venue will begin at 8 am or earlier. All participants must be checked in no later than 9:00 am.

Sharing a car? You must both be registered and on the confirmed list. If one of you is confirmed and the second is not, you will not be able to share the car. We will not allow more than 2 people to share a car. Both parties must indicate on your registration who will be sharing your car.

We will be sending out emails prior to the event with specific details regarding check in and car prep, please keep an eye open.
