CCC is less about speed and more about gradually pushing your car to the limit until you start to lose control and then figuring out how to recover from that, and how to ride that line just at the edge of losing control. You sit with an instructor for the day and there are four "obstacles". Figure 8, skidpad, emergency lane change, slalom. They hire a water truck and wet down the course throughout the day. You pick which obstacle's line you want to get in (you can do the whole day at the figure 8, or you can do one after another until time's up, etc.). Really useful as you are sort of encouraged to spin out/push it past the limit. Then at the end of the day they string all the obstacles together for a kind of basic autocross course and then you drive it a few times, and then ride with the instructors.

Autocross school is basically an autocross day except an instructor sits with you for all 8 runs, and you also get to ride with them for a bunch of laps.

Both events are not timed.

I'm volunteering at CCC to help out, and may volunteer at autocross school or sign up and use that as a "testing" event to get back into the swing of things for the season.

Kevballs - so I just mail in the pre-registration with a check? There's no way to pre-register online, correct?

Correct. As of right now, the only registration for those events is via old fashioned snail mail. I mentioned to them that online registration for the school would be helpful, but they are charged fees if they do it that way. They were considering it though.

Two questions:

-February 28, Ice Autocross: have you got additional info. about this? links? have you got pics, video?

-April 18, (Car Control Clinic) - it's more catered towards BMWCCA members: Since it's more towards the Bimmer owners (RWD), GTIs welcome?

Thanks.

Never been to ice autocross, Dave can shed some light.

Car control clinic is geared towards BMWCCA members so if you have signed up for the club membership then no problem. The club is very FWD friendly! With the exception of Joe and I, all of the golfmk6 participants are non-RWD
