Prizes would be hard to do, everyones cars have to be paxed into proper classes, and times need to factored which is usually done after the race. It's alot of work, expecially with how many people will be running for the first time at this event. There is a group of about 20 racers who have hit most or every race this year and about 40 others who hit the odd race.

Also the cost of $20 for members and $30 for non members doesn't leave much for prizes, half of the money goes to charity, and what's left quickly gets eatten up by insurance and equipment cost.

I think a chance to show your car and driving ability in front of such a large crowd is better then any prize.

It's not rocket science, a simple laptop and spreadsheet will get you final times once you have the calculations built in, all you do is enter the raw time and the pax factor. The hardest part is figuring out the pax time, if that is done when they sign up and everything in entered into a laptop. You get instant pax times.

It can be done, just need to put in a little effort into it and not just write things down on a dumb piece of paper.

Well if someone steps up with a laptop and creates the program, and will be at all 7 races then yes it's easy u offering?

its much easier said than done, the people who run the auto-x do this all in their free time and are very busy with their day to day lives. Not to mention, I don't think anyone who shows up to the autox is a computer programmer.

A "dumb piece of paper" is all we have, and for now it works.

As for the autox at bimmercruise, its really not worth it to enter the times of the people who just show up for this one event into the overall roster.

Well if someone steps up with a laptop and creates the program, and will be at all 7 races then yes it's easy u offering?

I can't create the program, but I've got no problem offering my laptop for use. Just no dumping the water off the tents onto it... richie *no-no* lol

It doesn't matter if you're sporting 20's for dyno runs.

what kind of roads does the cruise consist of ? any highway ?

They vary, although none are gravel/stone. The cruse is 91km long and includes highway driving as well.

I'm going to enter the autocross.

If anyone wants to have their car read on Sunday so I can load software into it, please send me an email to mark dot dsylva at gmail dot com

I'll offer a special price if you get your car read tommorrow. This applies to any car from 1997 to 2003, as long as it does not have MS45 engine management as they require the ECU to be removed for reading. This also applies to any e46 M3 up to 2005.

I can't read any e90 cars on Sunday as they usually take 60 to 75 minutes to read if they are 2007 or later.
But I'll offer some special pricing on 335's so just ask.

Thank you very much for your nice and kind comment, as you know we are nuts about our bimmers, and for the love of our beloved marquee, I am welling to search and find unique BMW such as Alpina made BMWs half a word a way and along this quest and passion meet people that are in the same way attached to their BMW.
I always loved the history of Alpina and Alpina cars, I am fortunate enough that I could bring some thing to show that most of us only have seen and read about it in magazine, and however, I am glad that you liked seeing my Alpina B10 and again thanks for recognition.

I really enjoyed this day, and though I was there more for the AutoX than the show and shine, it was a great atmosphere having both events together; bimmer lovers in both modes-- the meticulous attention to detail of the show cars and the frenetic motion, noise and mechanical straining of the autocross.

5ers old and older really stole the show in my eyes-- Gamite's awesome e39, Ted's euro M535i (I hope you have the patience and good fortune to find the right buyer for this car) and my personal favourite (as I write this, anyway), Maluco's e12, among many others, the Alpinas, etc.

Cheers all.
