Rich Gehring Memorial - Spring Fling Autocross - SE Lot

Online Registration opens March 15
Register Online at http://sdbmwcca.motorsportreg.com

Come on out to Qualcomm's Southeast Lot on Saturday, April 29, and celebrate a special event with us! The Spring Fling autocross commemorates Rich Gehring, who was the backbone of our Chapter for over 30 years. Rich served on the San Diego Chapter Board of Directors in many different roles, but the role that he was famous for was that of Equipmentmeister. Rich kept all of our autocross and driving school equipment, along with our truck and trailer, in perfect working order for more years than we can remember. He was at every autocross and HPDE, where he would help set up and run the event. Rich gave an immeasurable gift to our chapter through his time, generosity, knowledge, and experience. His exceptional kindness and his genuine smile continue to inspire us.

Back in his day, Rich won more than his share of autocross trophies, so celebrate his memory by engaging in one of his favorite events--a fast and fun San Diego Chapter autocross!

The helmet standard has changed to require Snell 2010 or 2015 ratings. Check yours now to be sure it’s up to date—rentals are very limited.

Qualcomm Patchapalooza '17

The west lot of Qualcomm is crumbling away in all the wrong places. In order to avoid the pot holes, we have to alter our courses—sometimes in the middle of the day. It looks like we’ll have the lot for, at least, a few more years, so it’s worth investing a little time and money to make our events better. To that end, we’re having another patching party where we’ll clean up some of the important areas and refill with concrete or cold patch asphalt. We need volunteers, wheelbarrows, and tools.

We’ll meet in the west lot on 1/15 at 9am. Please let us know if you can make it by joining our Facebook event. We need you!

We’re down to our final autocross of 2016 and your last chance to earn points! We’ll be back in the West Lot of Qualcomm for tons of holiday fun! We'll have our 4th Annual Instructor Runoff and our Instructor / Staff appreciation awards. We are also planning to collect for Toys for Tots at this event, so bring your new, unwrapped toys and spread some holiday happiness!

Instructor and Staff Appreciation Day!
 Your volunteer instructors work tirelessly at our events—jumping in and out of cars for hours at a time. Imagine how hot and exhausted you are after a few laps in 80 °F heat. Now imagine several non-stop hours of that! So, let’s show these hard-working folks our appreciation with our Instructor Runoff and Instructor of the Year awards!  Our "Staff" members are actually all volunteers. They spend most of their day working to bring you the best event possible. We try to make sure that they, too, drive in the event, but many of our volunteers attend the event solely to work. That deserves a huge THANKS! Let them know you appreciate them with our Staff Volunteer of the Year award!

Since we’ll be back on Standard Time, we are limited to 80 participants, so register early!

This is the last event where we’ll accept helmets with the Snell 2005 rating. Next year, only helmets with Snell 2010 or 2015 ratings will be allowed. **

Try on helmets, gloves, and shoes in various sizes from a range of manufacturers

Patriot Day Autocross - West Lot

Register Online at http://sdbmwcca.motorsportreg.com

Patriot Day honors the men and women who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, and salutes the neighbors and emergency responders who worked tirelessly and selflessly in the wake of the tragedy. This day also celebrates the spirit of America, showing how strong we are by maintaining our way of life despite the challenges. So let's have some fun living life to the fullest. (Well, maybe not tire life). Join us in the West Lot for the second autocross of our inaugural points series.

We are updating our helmet ratings to Snell 2010 or 2015. If you have Snell 2005, get your new helmet soon as our grace period ends Dec 31, 2016!
