New Autocross classes for 2015

Our Autocross Committee met in November to discuss upgrades and refinements in our popular Autocross program. We won't change our spirit of fun or our welcoming attitude. But the time has come to evolve our car classes, after reviewing past entries and with an eye toward the future. The goal is to still keep it simple and objective, while better balancing the number of drivers in each class. Click the cone for details!

Inspecting Your BMW Before a Driving School

Our Chapter has its annual High Performance Driving School at Chuckwalla coming up on March 7-8. For your safety, BMW CCA requires a careful inspection of all cars going on the track, before the event, performed by a professional mechanic.

To help members understand which components are important, two live inspections will be done by Chris Keefer, well-known in the BMW community and owner of the new Independent Motorcars. One car will illustrate failures, and Chris will provide a free inspection of a member's car (one which we expect to pass). Q and A afterwards, food and soda provided. Chris will also make appointments for free tech inspections for any and all in attendance this evening.

TIME: Wednesday, February 18, 6:30 pm PLACE: Independent Motorcars, 5836 Autoport Mall, San Diego (off Miramar Rd near I-805)

PLEASE RSVP (for food planning) by email: info@independentmotorcars.com If you wish to offer your BMW for the inspection at the event, please email to the same address.

March 7th - Saturday

High Performance Driving School at CVR

Our headquarters will once again be at the Royal Plaza Inn. It is a casual 35-40 minute drive west of the track. Your cost per night at the hotel with our special rate is $99.00.

The registration fee this year is $475. If you sign up prior to February 6, 2015, the fee is $425. If you decide to opt out of our traditional Saturday night dinner/raffle, your pre-February 6th registration cost would only be $400.
