You must be a member of the The BMW Club of Canada or affiliate chapters. Membership fees are $62.15 (HST included).
If you've never participated before and would like to try it out for the first time you may do so as a guest for $60.00 as a one time allowance.

Register early and get your car ready. Be part of the track walk. This is the most important part to learn the course!
Late comers will have to get rides with other participants to learn the course. If you miss the track walk, and you may also miss out on your first practice run!

A Few Changes for 2012 . . .
For 2012, BMW Trillium Club is proud to announce we have collaborated efforts with CASC-OR regional autoslalom series for 1 of our events.
The May 20th Mosport DDT Autoslalom event will have a larger field, thus reducing the price of registration to $50.00 (members) $60.00 (non-members).
Due to the increased number of participants we cannot guarantee there will be any time left for “open lapping” after the competition.

Helmets are always mandatory. A recommendation of Snell 2000 or SA2000 or better is preferable.
Some loaner helmets will be available for rent, but this is on a first come, first serve basis. Helmet rentals are $10/day.
If you plan on competing towards the autoslalom finals & competition trophy (awarded at the Christmas Dinner)
we have decided to take your best results from 6 of 8 events (keep in mind Winter Go-Karting results also count for the later).

Registration for 2012 is to be done electronically via our website. You can pay by PayPal.
Memberships are also being done electronically and that feature is already up and running.
As usual with both facilities, washrooms will always be open for usage all day long. You can buy lunch at the onsite Powerade concession.
Lunch at Mosport DDT is included with participation.

First-Timers:
You must be a member to be able to attend our Autoslalom events. If attending your first event for the season,
complete, please note that all observers, helpers, and passengers must complete a waiver.
Parents or guardians need to submit waivers for children.
Please keep check back to see updates as some of this information is subject to change!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at Randy.Sparre@gmail.com


Thanks in advance,


Randy Sparre
Autoslalom Chair



P.S. Volunteers needed!
Anyone that can help out with Autoslalom please e-mail me or contact our volunteer coordinator Dan Janssen (aka Danimal)
You will automatically be qualified for our new rewards program (build up enough volunteer hours and you can get a free Mosport school!)
We need your help to keep these events alive.

P.P.S This event will (officially) no longer be called "Autocross", rather "Autoslalom"

You'd have to be nuts not to come to the May DDT event... $50 for members is as good a deal as you'll ever get for a DDT event... and if we do have time to go lapping, what a bonus. I can't wait to get my subframe fixed up and my sticky tires mounted up.

Just a side note, we will be using CASC's timing gear for the May 20th event, and all the times are up on a display screen for all to see (so we can see how many CASC guys we're ahead of!)

I like how you're respecting the SCCA's ownership of the word "autocross", but to hell with Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, or whatever the hell Mosport is called now, haha!

Looking forward to what is sure to be a great season!!

Is registration solely electronic or is it still possible for people to show up and register at the event the day of? Also, in the event that you pre-register but due to extenuating circumstances you can't make it, do you get credit that can be used towards another event?

Yes Registration is to be done electronically. If you are not a member, you won't be able to register electronically in which case you'll register in person the morning of. This is in an effort expedite registrations in the am.

If you can't make it after pre-registering we will issue a credit towards another event. There are no weather related refunds. It is a competition event rain/snow/sun. :)

I'm not sure. Bring them anyways at least. R-comps are only 2 points... got room on your mod list for 2 points? I'm going to be running my RA1's, so I guess I'll just have to beat you outright, and with PAX.;)

Hey, it's my bday on saturday too, but I'll be there!*par-t* No excuses! There is no deadline... if you can make it, pay there, or register now, and we can forward your payment to the 20th if you can't make it.

WOW, what a great first event to kick off the 2012 season!!!!!!!!!!!

Weather was great, cars were amazing and the day was just perfect.

Had a great day meeting alot of new competitors and checking out some amazing cars, I have to get a better camera and start taking photo's because there was some wicked wicked cars out.

Big thank you to all working in the timing tent this Sunday, it was amazing to have all those cars put through their runs in just over 5 hours, you guys kept me busy making sure cars were staged and ready to go. Also a big thanks to all competitors for marshaling during the event, great work everyone!!!!

Also big thanks to Randy for all his work leading up to this event in the off season!

Looking forward to seeing everyone for the next event on May 20th at the DDT at Mosport!!!!!

Even if your not racing everyone has to come check this one out!!!!!!!!!!

That doesn't mean they can't post some low-res, watermarked shots. In fact that's what they should do to give us a feel for the quality of the shots they got. Or at least post a link to their own website where we can peruse the thumbnails and order shots.

Any chance we can petition the powerade center to repave their parking lot? We and other clubs are paying a lot to use it.
The surface is terrible, with lots of dips. Not to mention that some parts of it are literally turning to rubble. I had to clear quite a lot of large chucks of asphalt when I was marshaling.

there are not many places that will let us use the lots for racing, i don't think you'll see a repave this year

Pretty sure they will blame the cars as the cause for tearing up the lot...

I've always wondered if GM in Oshawa would let us use their lot. It's huge, Camero car club used it last year for this:

When I was talking to Dave a couple years ago at one of our sweet KW meets where only me and Dave showed up :rolleyes: I mentioned the lot @ Toyota Cambridge for the same reason. Dave tried calling them to see if we could use it but didn't get too far. Maybe if someone from the club were to call, we could sell the idea that it will help build a positive image for the company because they are promoting people to take it to the track rather than the street and that this type of event helps people gain a better understanding of the dynamics of their car which in turn makes them safer drivers.

It's worth a shot...

Well that's what we're paying them for right? New pavement wouldn't tear up like that.

I spent some time last summer looking in google maps for potential alternate/cheaper locations.
The best bet looks like Sheridan College (area 53) in Oakville. Other clubs have been there before.
http://local.google.ca/maps/ms?msid=214877854374239440605.0004a7e6bc202c418871 6&msa=0&ll=43.471889,-79.698343&spn=0.012831,0.021994&iwloc=0004abe13e7623a9c2955

Another potential option is the Hershey Centre in Mississauga.
http://local.google.ca/maps/ms?msid=214877854374239440605.0004a7e6bc202c418871 6&msa=0&ll=43.630865,-79.652606&spn=0.00643,0.010997

John and/or Randy may have already contacted these places though, so I'm not suggesting to go over his head, just to help find the best place.

BMW Canada's new HQ in Richmond Hill might be available, and they might let us use it for free/cheap.
I have a friend there who might be able to look into it. It's hard to tell how much space they have as google's image shows the lots under construction.

Good point. Maybe something to consider for next season or as a backup if the powerade center switches the dates on us again.
It might also help us negotiate better prices with the powerade centre.

Anyhow, the powerade center is a great central location... just thinking aloud I guess.

CASC guys are raring to go for the Sunday event at the DDT. You should see that chatter on their forums about the up coming autoslalom. Great to hear, great to see. This is going to be HUGE, expecting something along the lines of 80 participants or so. If anyone is available to volunteer, we really need your help as this event got HUGE fast, so we're going to need many extra hands. We can't offer much other than a huge warm thank-you, lunch, some small swag, and Trillium Volunteer Rewards Points. If you can volunteer please contact Dan Janssen. If you're participating and a member of Trillium please pre-register on our website.

Given the size of the event we may or may not have open lapping afterwards. We have the track until 5. Expecting the event to finish around 3 so that would give about 2 hours of lapping broken into 2 groups thats approx 2 x half hour sessions each. Pricing will be determined at the event depending on the amount of lapping time available. If you have any other questions please contact me. john@trillium-bmwclub.ca

I was thinking about this the other day, assuming we have 80 cars and assuming that they are all interested in doing lapping after. Having only 2 groups means there could be up to 40 cars on the track at a time and on DDT that's just going to be a parade. I know it's not likely that everyone will want to do lapping after the event so how the groups are broken up should depend on how many people want to lap.

no....it wasn't even that. They have so many shifts that the parking lot fills up even on weekends and they didn't want the hassle of scheduling an event and working around their shifts.

In reference to the lapping on Sunday IF there is time, many of the participants are packing up and going home after the event. If for whatever reason there is more than 50 cars lapping ie. 25/run group then we'll divide into 3 run groups. That won't happen though.

I would like to thank Randy, Richie, all of the volunteers, participants, CASC-OR, and SPDA for an absolutely fantastic autoslalom today at the Mosport DDT. over 80 participants, I lost count. Not one incident. And just a fantastic group of people to hang out with and have fun on a weather perfect May day!

Now all you folks with go-pros and camera's clicking all day please post up your videos and pictures.

I want to take a moment and thank everyone that made the day possible.
It has been some time since my last Auto X and it was my brothers first "on track" experience.
Other than some nasty sunburn and feeling exhausted, we both had a terriffic time!

Thanks to all those who took me for a ride and made me pucker up. I didn't take many pictures today but I am sure the few who were near the turns must have some great shots they'd love to share and we'd love to see.

Great event, as expected! I'm posting my 5th run, which was a 94.134 second run. Listen carefully when I hit the brakes in the stop box. That little whistle noise is my brake fluid evacuating through a brand new pin hole in my hardline. Trailer ride time:(

Good event guys,a little slow off the hop but went smoothly enough afterwards.Glad you didn't put too many slow bits into the track,some casc guys were moaning a bit but I loved it.Fastest I've gone in my car yet,feels good to use more than 2 gears.*th-up*
I was kinda hoping someone has some video from trackside of my car in action(little orange thing with big black wings).I have to edit the the FTD run as I gapped out in the heat and left it on for far too long,I'll post it once its up.

Hope you made it home ok Scott,sorry I didn't any spare straps to help ya out.

I know just trying to make everyone understand. Normally we're punctual. CASC was also having timing issues which didn't help once we started we were only throughing one car out at a time until the timing gear was adjusted accordingly. That said, once we were running it went very, very smoothly. Thanks for bringing your wicked machine out. It was definitely some eye candy and a hoot to watch! I hope you bring it out to the Powerade Centre next month when we run there again.

I hope to be able to make it to a powerade event,I found a set of proper a-mod wings for sale I'm hoping to buy and have installed soon.Multi element high(er) downforce wings should help me.I was struggling yesterday with brake bias issues and trying to run old slicks for the 1st 4 runs,should've put the new tires of for the 4th run for a little extra practice on the grippy buns.
I think I'd have found close to another 2 seconds with one more run,I found 3 seconds with just the tire change.:)

Ok back to the shop(spent the whole day cleaning the shaop and packing race crap)the E30 needs some elbow grease too as its filthy.

I'm figuring out the results at the moment. Since we use a different PAX system then CASC, everything needs to be reevaluated. Plus, I need to filter out the Trillium/Non-CASC competitors. But FTR (unofficially), the 6 fastest cars out of 89 registered (PAX'd by their system) were:

1)'04 STi
2)'00 Miata
3)'00 Impreza 2.5RS
4)'04 WRX

Yes Trung is a very fast dude for sure,I shot myself in the foot trying to run my old tires to save the good ones for the solo nats in August.Its not like me to spin a run away,cone a run away,stop cone a run away,and drop a wheel and throw a run away.The only run on the Avons took 3 seconds off and for sure another 2 would've been gone in 1 more run as I had no choice that run but keep it safe with no penalties.
I hopefully corrected my brake trouble tonight(nearly no front brakes it turned out)and fixed the shifter which was sticking and causing some issues.I'm going to Picton so we'll see how I compare to trung and the usual gang of fast guys there.
I'd like it if for next year you can layout the exact same course,I'll be making well over 200hp with boost,going to lighten the car further over the winter and I'm working on a set of muilti element wings with downforce a much higher priority than drag so I'll need the extra power.

I'll try and make it down for a powerade event this summer with the bigger wings.

This was the first time I have ever participated in something like this. I have never had so much fun with my car. Truly something that needs to be experienced by any car enthusiast.

I was so nervous before my first run. I really had no idea what to expect. I was more shocked at the fact that I was being allowed to go out there and drive my little heart out lol, but once I completed it I couldn't wait to get back out there! I definitely want to do this again! And would recommend to anyone that has been on the fence about something like this.

I had a great time with some old friends and finally put some faces to names of some of the members.

Terry your brother is serious! When the roll bars came out of his vert it was hilarious. "what the hell? That's never happened before..."

I don't see why Mr. Registrar can't simply e-mail Mrs. Empowerd a list of who has pre-registered on-line the night before or the morning of. Then she can simply refer to the list if someone says they've pre-registered and check their name off. I usually bring the print out confirmation anyway, but I think that would be simpler for everyone.

Ran the regional in Barrie today,the car is working better but I'm still not happy with the times laid down only being about a second clear of the next fastest time.However it rained off and on all afternoon and my wet runs were only a touch slower the next fastest guys best dry runs.(Mike in the fast imprezza)

I'm curious as to what mods does Daniel's JCW Mini has? It seems odd to me that his car is PAX'ed essentially the same as Jon's 330ci which is more or less stock.

Edit: Nevermind. I spent some time looking through the 2012 SCCA Solo rules and some of the changes between last year and this year, the JCW mini is indeed STX (which sucks because my car currently falls within the same class but definitely can't keep up to) and the PAX in the DS class was bumped up a bit between last year and this year sorry Jon lol.

I know.... what's even worse is that I don't have a 330... I have a 325 :(
It should really be in a lower class. Hard to believe 187hp car is in the same class with 187hp as a 335is with 332hp.
Oh well, that's how it goes though. Maybe I should get a BRZ? :)

You should know that autox has almost nothing to do with power untill your well into the mod classes,overall weight,suspension design and probably the most important consideration is wheelbase(also front and rear overhangs).The mini is short with nearly no overhangs,the 335is not so much.

Oh yea, I know. I would much rather lose weight off my car than gain power. But it would be nice to be able to power oversteer to get around some tight corners (an LSD would be nice too!). Best I can do is reduce rear tire pressure to loosen it up, but then it gets really loose on faster corners/slaloms.

what rubber was that 94 teg using?

He was on r-comps which are allowed for stock category cars. Which brings me to another point, John was running R888s on his E30 at the last event but he's classed as STX. Street touring is the only category that does not allow r-comp tires so for the last event John's car would fall under Street Prepared (SSP) with a PAX of 0.865

You are right with regards to your car being in DSP, I just said SSP because if your car was in the S class, street prepared or street modified would be the only classes where r-comps and a steering rack swap would be allowed.
With regards to being thrown under the bus, DSP is PAXed harder than STX (0.851 fot DSP vs 0.822 for STX)... so I think you just threw yourself under the bus lol

I'm just bitter because I can only race for fun now, my car is the heaviest PAXed (street legal) car at the events :rolleyes:

Yeah, I think it's pretty lame that adding lowering springs alone moves you from stock to street touring.

But John's rack swap would put his car into DSP where he can pretty much do anything to his car except for boost it or stroke it.... he could convert it from MacPherson strut to double A-arm if he wanted to lol!

Yup, great event. Went so fast and we were done by 1:30pm. We probably could have done 7 runs easily. Maybe something to consider if it keeps going so fast. Course layout was great too.

Can't add extra runs, if we have more people show up the day is too long, and per event rules are not fair to those running for the season.

We finished early as there was a smaller then usual run group, and there was many times there were no cars lined up, It's frustrating waiting on people to run and lengthens the day, no matter how many times its said in the drivers meetings.

I think a volunteer to line people up would help. I found that usually people don't know what run it is and if they should line up. Also because cars often go out of order, it's hard to tell who is in order, who isn't, who is re-doing a run, who is catching up on a missed run etc. So some announcements / more communication would help.

At the DDT it was worst because how many cars and all the stuff going on.

I spend most of my time at the events chasing people down to do runs, doesn't matter how many times I call out car numbers or what run is on, racers need to pay more attention to what's going on and be ready.

Part of the reason for no cars being lined up is that people aren't aware of who is out marshalling. For example, if cars 1-5 are lining up and cars 6-10 are marshalling, cars 11 and up will think they have time to kill before their run even if they are paying attention to the numbers of the cars that are lining up. Considering that we had a smaller group this time and that run times were around a minute for this event, I think thinks went fairly well. Having the timing tent away from things and posting the times definitely helped.

We will develop a system to display what are the next car numbers so those in the paddock can see who's up next. I'm very please with how Sunday went, only a couple of times did we have an empty line. All in all it went very smoothly. And thankfully timing was working almost perfectly! In total of 140 runs only 8 timing malfunctions. Next event we'll get better for sure!

Everyone also note that the next event is on a Saturday, NOT Sunday. We run on Saturday October 27th at the Powerade Centre. Be there at 9am for registration, 9:30 mandatory drivers meeting, and first car away at 10am sharp. If you show up after 9:30 you will not be able to register until after 10am and may miss your first run. See you all soon!

Slipping and sliding is fun, but when it's wet the course is usually slower and tighter for safety reasons which is less fun than the quicker layouts we run in the dry imo.

Either way I'll be there *par-t*

Yup.. 400sqft for my baby room and spare room. Last weekend i added another foot of blown insulation in my attic. Next weekend i might add more sprayfoam insulation in the subfloor over the garage....

Yes that car is no dog. It surprised me too. They did a good job when they built the Type R 10+years ago. And surprisingly it can still run with the latest perf models like the FRS... : )

I am going to make the last auto slalom... That will make it 6 events for me.

Ugh... I hope they're wrong. Hopefully the course isn't as tight. I know we need to slow it down a bit in the rain, but I was at full steering lock, idling in 1st gear for some of the turns and could barely make it. My car felt like a barge (more so than usual!).
