Event Description

This is our third competitive event of the season! We'll have run groups and timing, and everyone needs to classify their cars and have car numbers on both sides. Our main goal at every event is to maximize your seat time and fun. Take passengers, ride alongs, swap cars with your friends (if you are non-compete) and have a blast.

We do not require previous high performance driver training or experience, but attending one of our Car Control Clinics or similar training is highly recommended. In the pre-COVID world, we had an exceptional program of instruction for first-timers and inexperienced autocrossers. In-car coaching is no longer the norm, but we will do our best to provide observational guidance to help you improve your skills. We encourage everyone to come and enjoy the fun!

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 BMW and MINI and we don't limit registrations from other marques. Everyone is welcome!
