Guys, this Sunday April 9th BMWCC-Trillium is holding their first autocross for 2006. I'd recommend beginners that are thinking about trying this event to come out to the first one because the course is always setup much easier and there are few people attending. All non-BMW cars welcome! The location is MDSsciex parking lot at 71 Four Valley Drive, Concord (Hwy 400 & Langstaff). Cost is $15/ea event ($54 annual membership required & sold on site due to insurance reasons). Be there at 8:30am sharp!

Great event today to all those who participated.

I had fun ripping the Volvo 850 T-5 wagon around the course, but too bad the massive body roll I got results in big problems putting the traction down.

It was a scary sight to see one of the participants kiss the curb though. I guess he entered the turn too hot, hopefully his car's alright.

Yes that was my dad....We took out his 330i today ( my 328 is still on winters and needing brakes.)

I was in the car, didnt seem like he was goin much faster then the previous runs and I guess he braked then he started to turn and hit the gas a little but then he realized she wasnt turning ( understeer) so he hit the brakes and bang! hit the curb.. Thankfully there is no visible damage other then the airdam underneath the car and some paint scratches on the lower bumper....Rim seems fine, no vibrations or wobble on the highway so we may have gotten lucky this time!!!

But ye it was our first time doing anything of this sort and well it was really fun while it lasted and we hope to come out to the next ones!

Thanks alot to the ppl that gave some instruction and or took me in their car to get a sense of what to do!!! haha and maybe my dad should have asked for a little more instructing.

So car is safe and overall great experience THANKS!

The Lotus did not run. He showed up late and probably just wanted to check out the event. He's a member of Teutonic for those who remember that board.
