2018 BMWCCA NCC Autocross Points Event #5 by RRT Racing
Why should I autocross?
You should participate to become a better driver! Autocross is a full time car control contest. It’ll teach you how your car behaves as it approaches its limits; limits that are not safe, legal, or practical to explore on public streets. It’ll also teach you some critical skills in handling your car when out on the roads. Once you’re familiar with your car’s limits on the autocross course, that will all then transfer to making you a safer and more savvy driver out on the street.
BMW’s are very well engineered. Many people think that they are close to the car’s handling limits when, in fact, they could pilot the car faster. Conversely, some people assume they are at the limits when they have actually exceeded them by over driving the car. For those drivers, learning to slow down can actually improve their driving and ultimately their timed runs. The fastest times come when the driver knows how to exploit the cars capabilities through an intimate understanding of the vehicle and the developed ability to continuously keep the car right at the limit the whole time.
Novices are welcome!
Novices are always warmly welcomed, and in fact encouraged to come out! Some driver’s go come out to the events to compete, others come to simply push themselves and learn their cars in a safe, low-impact environment. If you are new to autocross, or if you just want some advice, we always have experienced autocross instructors in attendance at every event who can both ride along with you and offer suggestions or pointers.
