GVC Autocross Series - What's New This Year - 2019 

 

The autocross program for Genesee Valley Chapter BMW CCA is being rebooted for 2019.

Last year we ran two events at a new venue in upstate NY - Pineview Run Auto & Country Club in Lafayette, NY. This year we will again be running two events at that fun venue, one in July and the other in September.

In addition, we have worked out a schedule with SCCA to run two events at the Seneca Army Depot. This is one of the best autocross sites in the Northeast and we are fortunate to be able to host events there once again. The runway there has a side area that we use to make interesting course designs with cones, providing participants with long runs with a variety of autocross maneuvers to navigate. Our first event will also include participants from the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky enthusiasts group so we should have plenty of competitors there to play with in June.
 
Here is the autocross schedule for this year:
Saturday, June 15 Seneca Army Depot
Saturday, July 13 Seneca Army Depot
Saturday, July 27 Pineview Run
Saturday, September 14 Pineview Run


We look forward to seeing a lot of BMW drivers at these events along with many other marques all having fun with cones and cars.

If you are new to autocross, great! We look forward to meeting new people at our events. Before going on, we would recommend checking out our “What’s an Autocross” page found here: What_is_an_Autocross

Vehicle Requirements 
You do not need to have a BMW to autocross with us. We’re all automotive enthusiasts and encourage you to bring any marque to run. However, we do not allow trucks, SUV’s, 4x4, or other vehicles with a high center of gravity.

Car Tech Review 
A technical review will be performed on each car. We use a "roving tech" system, so cars will be checked in the paddock area. If your car is ready for tech leave the hood open so the tech team can check it. Items that are checked during tech include:

• All loose objects removed from car interior and trunk, including driver floor mat
• Rapid Throttle return
• Battery secure
• Firm Brake Pedal
• No play in Wheel bearings
• Adequate tire tread (no cord showing)
• Helmet within one generation of current Snell rating. Must have hologram with SA or M 2010 or newer (Loaner helmets are available to drivers that don't have a Snell-certified helmet). 


In addition...

• All participants must have a valid driver's license.
• All participants and spectators must sign the GVC waiver on site.
