    Local AutoX Events For 2012

    I'm not trying to take any thing away from NCCBMW's events. Being on 2 local club committees now, I know entry levels have been a bit low these past couple of years for most. So I'm trying to cover all clubs in the area and post their schedules in hopes to retain current drivers, get back the ones who left us, and hopefully get even more newbies. Even if you can't make an NCCBMW event because it's too far, with so many events going on, there's a good chance you may be able to attend another clubs event.

    Here are the list of clubs and their websites that run in the area:

    Washington D.C. Region SCCA- http://www.wdcr-scca.org
    Autocrossers Inc. - http://www.wdcr-scca.org/SoloAutocro...7/Default.aspx
    National Capital Chapter BMWCCA- http://www.nccbmwcca.org
    Capital Driving Club- http://www.capitaldrivingclub.com
    Potomac Porsche Club- http://www.pcapotomac.org
    Chesapeake Porsche Club- http://www.pcachs.org
    Mazda Sports Car Club of Washington D.C.- http://www.mscw.com
    Corvette Club- http://www.corvetteclubofamerica.org

    So with about 8 solid clubs running full series of events in 2012, there is literally zero excuse to go out and run. That's about 60!!!! events in total from all of these clubs together, not even including the schools some of these clubs host. That's like 2-3 events every single weekend from March up to November.

    So, here are the schedules.

    There is also a full list of schools that each club has posted that I have not listed simply because I'm too lazy to. If you are interested in any of the schools, which I HIGHLY recommend if you are new, just ask me and I can get you more info.

    Capital Driving Club also has 6 Test & Tune events that I have not posted, again simply because I am lazy. They are all held on Sundays. If you want those dates or more info, just let me know.


    If anyone has ANY questions regarding AutoX in general, rules, clubs, dates, cars, classing, schools, tips, driving tips, setup tips, etc... you name it, please feel free to ask. I've been doing this for 6 full years now, going on my 7th. As I said at the beginning, I'm involved with a couple of clubs and know a TON of people involved with the others. I'm sure I can answer just about any question you have about this stuff and if I can't, I probably know someone who can.

    Hope to see some new people out there! 8-)
