    BMWCCA is now requiring all NCC Autocross participants (for both events and schools) to be registered BMWCCA members.

    We realize that not all of our past event attendees are members. To help offset the cost of membership new BMWCCA memberships are entitled to one free NCC Autocross points event!

    BMWCCA membership is $48 which is a great deal. BMWCCA members enjoy a multitude of benefits such as discounts on hotel rates and towing services. Plus if youíre a BMW or MINI owner you get the extra benefit of dealer discounts at most MINI/BMW dealers and several local shops in the area.

    See the links below for details:
    BMWCCA Member Benefits.
    NCC Membership.

    Signing up is easy! Simply go to Become a Member/Autocross for Free!!! and follow the posted steps. Make sure you complete step 3 after you complete your membership so that we can note your free event.

    Members:
    Online registration is $30.00. Walk-up registration is $35.00 for members (PM Session Only!)

    All Day Session (Online Registration Only!):
    Members: $45.00.


    Please register using Motorsport Reg here. Online registrations are done securely. Walk-ups are limited!!!

    The NCC Autocross program uses a BMW-centric customized classing structure which pits your BMW or MINI against similar performance models in 3 levels of trim: Showroom, Tuner, and Modified. There is also a simple classing structure for non-BMW competitors. You can check out the full details at nccautocross.com.

    Our program is beginner friendly, offering in-car instruction, guided course walks, and a dedicated group of organizers who are happy to answer any questions you might have or show you the ropes. Also, there are free loaner helmets available for use, so if you don't have your own helmet there is no need to go out and buy or rent one just to get a few fun runs in!

    We have made significant improvements this year including a new timing system. So whether you're a longtime BMWCCA veteran or never been to an autocross before, come check it all out online at our website: www.nccautocross.com

    Please contact us at info@nccautocross.com with any questions you might have. We'll be happy to answer your questions. And check out our message board message board at nccautocross.com to discuss the event with other attendees!

    See you on the 21st and thank you for autocrossing with us!!

    I can't wait my car should be good to go in X1 for this event.

    Are there any rules governing the use of cameras? I have a suction cup mount, but SCCA makes me tie the camera to something as a "backup" so I was wondering if NCC has similar rules.

    I understand that SCCA doesn't want a camera to be thrown off a car in case the suction cup fails, but Autocrossers Inc didn't require a tether. For me, the tether requirement really limits the different camera angles I can get (i.e., there's really only one place I can attach my camera for SCCA events).

    Suction cup mounts (e.g. GoPro) are fine. No need to tether if it's mounted sturdy.

    What is the non-comp class? I was looking at past results from the most recent NCC autox, and I saw this NC class that doesn't appear in the classing webpage.

    NC is for any run that does not accumulate points.

    Please excuse my ignorance; but I'm thinking about doing the autocross at Bowie next Saturday (April 21st). I'm am not a member of BMW club and plan on driving and old 911 in the event. I'll happily sign up early and online, but do I now have to become a member of BMW NCC club in order to drive?

    Above, I see member/non-member pricing, but there are other threads that refer to "everyone" having to become a member.

    Sorry to beat a dead horse, but please advise.

    Hi BH - we need to fix the listing up above, but you are correct. You need to be a member to participate in Autocross. It's covered elsewhere, but unfortunately it is an IRS, non-profit situation.

    On the positive side, by becoming a member, you get your first Autocross event for free, plus you get all the discounts and other benefits of membership.

    I hope you join us.

    Thanks for letting me know about the ad. I've corrected it. I'll check the rest of them as well.

    Ok, so I joined the CCA, then joined NCC, then made a motorsportreg account, how do I get the promo code for my first autocross?

  13. #13
    It's actually not a promo or discount code. It's an actual credit for one event session. Feel free to email us at info@nccautocross.com if you need any help getting registered.

    All signed up fellas. Looking forward to giving autocross a try with my new "club." Already feeling bad for the fiance who wants to come watch. Lots of "sitting around" for her. No rain allowed.
