I'll let you know if we get more serious about any of these events.

Sounds like we got more in common then just first names. I broke my back in '92 racing motocross. I'm fine now, but that pretty much ended my motocross career. I too had to move on from two wheels to four.

Awwww, the good 'ol days...

Wow, I didn't realize we had a Track forum on this Board. From my experience, there aren't a whole lotta members here who track or autocross their cars. Most people here seem more obsessed with straight line performance. Not that that's bad or anything, just my observation. Anyways, I'm checking in of course because I love autocrossing. I would do more track events if it were in my budget - but I want to buy a house this year, so first thing's first.

If you're in SoCal, then there a very good chance you'll see me at a local event .

Hi alken. What class does a 323 get put in? I thought I read D, but from you what you wrote, does it get classed in C? Thanks.

BMWCCA autocrosses have different classes than SCCA events.
