Event Description

Fun run events execute similarly to a regular season competition event, without all the formality. We'll have run groups and timing, but don't require classification or car numbers. Our main goal at a fun run event is to maximize your seat time and fun. Take passengers, ride alongs, swap cars with your friends and have a blast.

This is a new location for us! We are trying it out, we encourage everyone to come and (quietly - 90dB day!) enjoy the fun - and give us feedback about the location! 

No special car preparation is needed, in fact, we recommend you bring the car you drive on a daily basis. Doing so will give you a greater appreciation for your car's capabilities and improve your driving skills in the process.

Our events are very social and we welcome all makes of cars, not just BMW and MINI and we don't limit registrations from other marques. Everyone is welcome!

Event cost is $85 per participant for members, $143 for non-members (includes 1 year of BMWCCA membership - $58). Click the button below to get signed up!

Step 1 - Understand Requirements
Read ALL of the content in this event listing to make sure you understand the event requirements, including: COVID-19 information, event location, waivers, membership requirements, payments, cancellation policy, tech inspection checklist, timeline, helmet requirements, waitlist, and guest policy.

Go-karts: Competitors driving karts of any kind are required to wear full-face helmets; a collar-type neck brace designed for motorsports use; and gloves, jackets, and full-length pants made of leather, vinyl, abrasion-resistant (ballistic) nylon or equivalent.

Because this is a new site and we are evaluating if it will be viable for future events, we are only allowing experienced autocrossers to attend (3 or more events of experience is required).

Step 2 - Be a Member
BMWCCA membership is required to participate. If you're not an active member of BMWCCA, you will need to join or renew your membership before signing up. We prefer you do this yourself at, but if you like, you may register as a non-member and we'll take your money and pass it along to BMWCCA National to renew or activate your membership on your behalf. If you register and your membership is not current, your registration will be placed on hold until you provide proof that your membership is active. If we cannot verify your membership by the time registration closes, your registration may be cancelled.

Step 3 - Register
Complete the registration form and sign the electronic waiver.
