The 2018 Autocross Series is open to Boston Chapter BMW CCA members. If you are not a member of the Boston Chapter BMW CCA, you may join for only $48 per year. If you are a BMW CCA member, you may add the Boston Chapter to your current membership.
Please be sure to read the rules prior to attending an event.
The charge for each Autocross event is $50.You must register for each event separately. After you are accepted for the event, you will be sent an Acceptance email, which will also contain payment details. The Boston Chapter will be using PayPal to accept payment for this event. Payment for each event is due as soon as the PayPal request is received. Failure to pay within a reasonable timeframe will result in your registration cancellation so waitlisted drivers would be given an opportunity to participate. If you have to cancel an event, please give us as much notice as possible so waitlisted drivers can have an opportunity to participate.There will be no refunds under any circumstances.
For more information, please see Eligibility and Registration.
We will have a new course for every event. Mandatory Drivers’ meeting starts ~ 8:00 am. Miss the Driver’s meeting, and you cannot run.
Two run groups will again be the format for 2018. We will have a half-hour lunch break and you will have the option to order (cash only) a sub for $8 and a soda or water for $1 the morning of the event.
All competitors will need to pass a Tech Inspection. However, every driver will have a choice: New or casual competitors in either BMWs or other makes will be able to tech as usual. The morning of EACH event get into the Tech line and have your car teched. Or, for more serious competitors there is a process which will lead to an Annual Tech sticker.
If a BMW driver wishes to qualify for the season’s championship within their respective classes, they will need to complete and turn in an Inspection and Modifications Form (IMF). The IMF will need to be completed and brought to the first event. The IMF includes a full disclosure of modifications, a calculation of points, and intended autocross class.
Autocross staff will give the car a tech inspection, successful completion of which will result in a 2018 Tech Sticker. After you have your AnnualTech Sticker, no further tech inspection will be needed for the season (we reserve the right to conduct random inspections). The only exception will be cars running R-compound tires which will require a wheel bearing check each event.
Non-BMW drivers may also have their cars teched once and receive an Annual Tech Inspection sticker. No IMF form is required for non-BMWs.
Meanwhile, if you’re a casual autocrosser, perhaps a first timer who just wants to come out and have a bit of fun and try the sport, simply find your model and year on the “Model Grid”, fill in the IMF, register and show up. We’ll perform a safety inspection and you’ll be ready to go.

The 2018 schedule includes eight regular season events, two Novice Autocross School, and a 2-day Evolution Autocross School (in partnership with NER SCCA) and a Test and Tune. You will have to get points in at least 4 regular season events to qualify for a trophy.
