    03/20/2010 - Autocross Points Event #1

    Bowie Baysox Stadium
    4101 Crain Highway
    Bowie, MD 20716

    NCC Autocross will host the first points event of the year on March 20th, 2010.

    Registration opens 12:00 AM on Saturday, February 27, 2010 and closes 11:59 PM on Thursday, March 18th, 2010.

    Register online as walk-up registration costs are higher!

    Online registration is $30.00 for members / $35.00 for non-members.
    All walk-up registrations will be charged $35.00 for members / $40.00 for non-members.

    Please register online so that we can properly plan for the event (and save yourself some money too). Online registration also will streamline your registration process on event day.

    This years program is targeted towards the first timer as well as the more experienced autocrosser. Our events promote a great social gathering of all ages and all cars. Bring your car right from the showroom, or take your project out of the garage for a spin around the cones, in a safe manner provided by our outstanding NCCBMWCCA autocross committee.

    Please contact us with any questions you might have. We'll be happy to answer your questions. Please use our message board at http://www.nccautocross.com/ to post any questions you may have.

    See you on the 20th!

    Fail on my part, at least for the E30. No way she will be ready by then. Maybe the Legacy will get a few more runs.

    Man I can't wait. Just got the subscription, new wheels, tires, coilovers. I'm sure everything I ordered will be here on time and there won't be any rain on the first event.

    Ok, maybe there will be rain. But no snow.

    Signed up! If there are any Z4 M Coupe drivers reading this thread...I want to ride along with one of you! I'm seriously considering one of those bad boys next year.

    I just tried to register for both Am and Pm sessions and it looks like both are filled up. Can anyone verify this for me? When I tried to select X2 it just pops back to M1....

    Also, is it me, or are 5 of the 6 cars in X2 in the wrong class? All but the RX8 should be in X3....

    The MS3 and my WRX would be in X3....except having a turbo bumps you up one. Hence why we're in there. ALl are 2.3 or 2.5L turbo cars.

    That RX-8 in X3 must be running R-comps or be boosted, otherwise he's be in X2

    Base Group = Engine Displacement Range (in Liters rounded to nearest .1)



    X1 = 4.7+

    X2 = 3.3 €“ 4.6

    X3 = 2.1 €“ 3.2

    X4 = 0.1 €“ 2.0



    After the Base Group number is determined, move up 1 Group (e.g.: X3 to X2) as follows:
    - Increase 1 Group if engine is rotary (Wankel engine)
    - Increase 1 Group if engine uses forced induction (factory or aftermarket)
    - Increase 1 Group if R-Compound tires are used. R-Compound is classified by NCC Autocross as any DOT tire with a tread wear rating of less than 140.

    Examples:
    - A 2008 Mazda RX-8 (1.3L) would be in X4, but is an X3 car because of its rotary engine. If the same RX-8 competes with R-Compound tires, it moves up 1 more Group to X2.
    - A 2010 Subaru WRX STI (2.5L) moves up from X3 to X2 because it has forced induction. Even factory forced induction, such as in this case, causes a car to move up 1 Group.
    - X1 is the maximum Group. Example: a 5.0 liter car with R-Compound tires remains in the X1 Group.

    I think we have it all fixed now. Please try again. Sorry about this!

    Expect that to become the norm as well, walk-up registrations may be for PM sessions only by rule moving forward, so if you want AM... pre-register and do so early.

    -Mike
    Or maybe always allow walk up registration for BMW/Mini owners only. That seems more fair as just half of the cars signed up are BMWs.
