Please read these instructions
The Boston Chapter Autocross Series is comprised of eight timed autocross events
for the season's championship, two Autocross school days, and a two day Advanced School or special event.
As a review, here is the sequence for registering a BMW on-line:
- Open the Model Grid and find your car’ base points.
- Download the IMF, enter your car’s base points at the top, then carefully declare
any modifications made and enter the appropriate point values.
- Total all point, base pts and modifications pts, to find which class your car
is in from the Autocross Classes schedule and complete the registration process
on line for your car in that class.
- Bring the completed IMF form to your first event. Your car will be teched and
given an annual tech sticker if it passes.
Drivers that do not bring their IMF need to understand that that their times will not count and
they will be required to have a tech inspection each event. Non BMW driver should
follow the classification process on the Classes, Points and Trophies page (link
below). A further resource is available in another link on that page SCCA Solo II
Non BMW driver should follow the classification process on the Classes, Points and Trophies page (link below).
A further resource is available in another link on that page SCCA Solo II Class Reference.
If you make changes to your car during the season that causes your class to change, or you want to switch cars during
the season, you must register again and be assigned a new number and class.
Other changes to your car that allow you to remain in your current class will require a new IMF form to be submitted,
noting the details of all changes made.
To edit or cancel your registration, please go to the
My Events page of My Boston Chapter.
No-showing is very unfair to your fellow autocrossers, since we frequently sell out and have a cap for number of participants. You
will be preventing somebody from attending by no-showing. It also causes
further delays on the day of event, recalculating worker assignments and run groups. Please don’t be "that guy".
If you cannot attend an event, you must notify the
at least 5 days before the event.
If you register for an event, then not show up without informing the Autocross Registrar at least
5 days in advance, you are considered a no-show
and your name is placed on
the Red List
Two appearances on the Red List will result in a ban of four Boston
Chapter Autocross events. The ban will extend into the next season if needed.
The Boston Chapter has chosen PayPal
for payments for the Autocross Series. People find that PayPal is easy to use, free,
and secure. You can pay using a bank account or your credit card. PayPal no longer
requires that you create a PayPal account. You can just pay with your credit card
and be done with it.
The Autocross Registrar will send you
a "payment request" email after you have been accepted to the event. You are not
completely registered until you have paid.
The "payment request" email will contain a link which will bring you back to the
Boston Chapter web site, where you will see a "pay now" button.
After clicking on "pay now", you will be sent to the PayPal web site. You can login to your existing PayPal account
or create a new account. After you complete the automated payment process, you are
marked as paid. In the unlikely event you can't use PayPal for payment, please contact
the Autocross Registrar (see above for link).
There will be no refunds under any circumstances.
