    Hi Folks –
    We’ve completed updates of the classification system for the 2016 season. Thanks to Ryan, Matt, and Jason for working thru this.

    https://autox.ggcbmwcca.org

    Summary of changes:
    – All prior classification data has been cleared. EVERYONE MUST RE/CLASSIFY BEFORE APRIL 23rd SEASON OPENER.
    – Unused numbers have been released. We ran a report of all accounts in the classification system and released numbers of folks who did not attend a competition autocross between 1/1/15 and 12/31/15
    – Minor reorganization of modification item UI
    – Reduction in tire points: cross-tread r-comps (Toyo RA1 type) have been absorbed into the summer tire category (0 point mod); Grooved r-comp (Hoosier A6/R6 type) are now 10 points; Non-DOT race tires are now 22 points.
    – Weight reduction simplified so you choose how much weight you removed.
    – More options for wheel width increases.

    2016 vehicles will be gradually added to the database. If you have one that is not in the system, write us so we will prioritize the update for your car.

    NOTE: We’ve been seeing some minor issues with ggcbmwcca.org that we’re dealing with. These issues are not related to the classification system, but may affect your ability to classify. If you experience such a problem, please write us directly and we’ll address it. autocross @ ggcbmwcca . org

    Registration for the season opener event on 4/23 opens at Noon on Wednesday 3/23.

    When I classify my 135i convertible it says “We think your vehicles curb weight is 3510 pounds.” Where is that data from? I know the curb weight is more than that for my car (listed as 3638 lbs).

    Can someone please let me know the sequence of classes in terms of “faster time”?

    If I understand correctly
    C < B < A < AA < AAA
    how about
    N and Gonza?

    Gonzo 80+ points
    AAA 70-79 points
    AA 60-69 points
    A 50-59 points
    B 40-49 points
    C 39 points or less

    N is non-compete
    X is non-BMW

    But I’ll usually group all the N-class cars in X-class also
