    Autocross is a safe, low-speed motorsport where competitors drive against the clock to turn in the best times as they navigate a driving course defined by orange parking cones in a large, open lot.

    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!

    Our events promote a great social gathering of all ages and all cars. So whether you're a longtime BMW CCA 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.comwith any questions you might have.

    Wow, Bob I guess we go back some time then. I remember taking the ol E30 M3 down to these AI events in the mid 90's.

    Man this could be real exciting, depending on the lot.

    Please get some one capable to setup the course. I will try and talk to John V, Greg Olson, and maybe Tom Bleh. Maybe John V will bring out the red DSP monster. Better yet get Lee Piconne to bring the BSP monster and design the course.....

    this could be real fun, if it is anything like 20 years ago....

    It's a lot right next to M&T Bank Stadium. AJ will be setting up the course. Close to Bowie in size with about the same surface. Paddock under the bridge.

    lol I'll make a low hp, street tire, FWD friendly course just for you Jason.

    If you looked at the size of the lot in the picture posted, you may notice the lot is quite small, and we cant use every inch of that for the course. Some will be grid and maybe paddock space. Much smaller than any "National level course designer" likely regularly runs on. After looking at the lot in person, I'd say it's just a tad larger than the upper lot of Bowie. Not big, but decent. Maybe a decent 40sec course. Which will need to be fairly simplistic since there's a good chance of a high number of fresh newbies running with this event. So not sure how much help a national level course designer would be in this situation. Either way, with the lot size and safety restrictions, it probably won't be a friendly course for your car.

    If someone wants to give me pointers, I'm all ears. I only have about 5 months to come up with something lol.

    You're buying me beers after you whoop me, right? LoL. Would be damn nice to chat with you for a bit.

    Make sure to bring the car with the wing on it so all the ricer fanboys can check it out.

    I had wanted to go to this, but I think the ALMS at VIR is pulling me more.
