Rooms are sparse in Big Bear so reserve your room soon.

Annual Interclub K1 Speed Challenge

Join us on Saturday, February 24 for the annual K1 Speed Challenge (K1 Speed SD Downtown location) between the Corvette Owners Club of San Diego, San Diego Miata Club, and San Diego BMWCCA. Last year competition was fierce and fun. This year promises to be just as good!

The racing will be a mini-Grand Prix format. Each club will race a qualifying race to set lap-times. Racers are then divided into three interclub classes based on qualifying lap times so fun and competitive racing can be had at all racing levels. The GP races are lap and position-based instead of standard K1 'arrive and drive' best lap-time races. The cost is $44 per racer, which is $5 less than the regular price. An awards ceremony and lunch will be planned; details to be determined.

We are looking for a minimum of 10 racers to participate. Please RSVP by emailing the Social Director at sd-events@sdbmwcca.com.
