2010 GGC BMW CCA autox season - SF Bay Area

Just wanted to inform all the coneheads out there of our 2010 season plans.

We will have 7 regular season point events (5 at Marina and 2 at Great America) and the Top Driver Shootout at the end of the season. The first event of the year is April 3rd at Marina.

We are having a Test and Tune the day before each Great America autox. Format has yet to be decided but the idea is to give people a chance to tune their cars on different course elements.

We are hosting 2 Evolution school weekends at Great America. One in May and one in June. Saturday will be Phase 1 and Sunday will be Phase 2. Registration for these schools will open this Monday (Feb 1). The schools will sell out quickly.

The full GGC calendar of events can be found here:
http://www.ggcbmwcca.org/?page=calendar

The classification system is up and running for classifying your car for 2010. Even if you classified your car last year you will need to do so again for 2010. You can keep your driver number from last season or you may choose a new one from the list of unclaimed numbers. Online classification is here:
http://autox.ggcbmwcca.org/

As always, we are open to new comers and provide driver coaches at the events. I would love to see some more 1-ers out there this year. Let me know if you have any questions on any of our events.

-Matt

Matt,
What class are you running this year? With the new points,it looks like you might be dropping back to A?

I'm going to miss the April date, but hope to be there the rest of the year.

While I like to see 1-ers at the autox, I think I will also like seeing a high revving V10 out there too. I think you will be first one at our autox. I have driven a E39 M5 and it was a beast. I can only imgine what the E60 M5 in M-mode will be like. Congrats on the new car.

I am running R888 r-comps, so I am in AA. I just added the BMW Performance Power kit but it only adds 20hp it made little difference in my points. No matter what class I look at, there are really good drivers to compete against. Going down to A or up to AAA will likely not help me out in the standings this year.

We will see you in May at Great America. Note there is a Test and Tune the day before the autox.

I hope to attend the April 3rd event. At least I'm planning on it. Baby is due the next month so I'll have to get "permission" to leave for a day from the wife.

By next month I meant the month after the autox. So I'll be fine. But I expect my wife will want me to stick around the closer it gets. You never know. Marina is a long drive for an early labor.

I will check but I am thinking Mar 1 will be the likely date. Mark it on the calendar as it will sell out fast.

Speaking of selling out fast, the May Evo school is full. June is just opened yesterday and is filling up fast. So get in soon if you are interested.

registration just opened this morning. 27 people so far. It will sell out by the end of the week.

We are very friendly and welcoming to first timers. We provide driver coaches and try to make the experience very fun for everyone. If you want to find out the handling limits of your car this is the place to do it. Try to explore the limits of your car on the switchbacks and you could ball it up. At an autox the worst you will do will hit a few soft rubber cones that will take all of the damage. So come out and hang out with some car guys and see what your BMW can do.

Nice video, but damn you guys in cali have a lot of room to play with. All of the NY Autoxs ive been too are very low speed and technical. But then again, our parking lots arent nearly that big.

Your course is also far better marked than ours.
