Default Local AutoX Events for 2012 (MD Clubs)

I noticed another thread on here with a list of events in the region, but here's a list of events held by clubs located in Maryland.

I'm now on the committee for 2 of these clubs and am learning a lot about what goes on behind the scenes for running/hosting these events. One thing that has come up at our meetings that's similar for both clubs I'm on is number of entries. Entry numbers have not surprisingly been low the past couple of years, mainly due to the economy. We are hoping things will turn around this year and are trying our best to get people out to our events to have fun in their cars. I'm posting this in hopes to get more new faces out to our events so we can continue on for many more years.

Here are the list of clubs and their websites that run in the area:

Washington D.C. Region SCCA- WDCR Home
Autocrossers Inc. - www.wdcr-scca.org/SoloAutocross/AutocrossersInc/tabid/257/Default.aspx
National Capital Chapter BMWCCA- NCC Community - Welcome
Capital Driving Club- Capital Driving Club
Potomac Porsche Club- Porsche Club of America (PCA) - Potomac Region
Chesapeake Porsche Club- Porsche Club Cheaspeake Region PCA
Mazda Sports Car Club of Washington D.C.- Mazda Sportscar Club of Washington Inc.
Corvette Club- Corvette Clubs - Corvette Club of America

So with about 8 solid clubs running full series of events in 2012, there is literally zero excuse to go out and run. That's about 60!!!! events in total from all of these clubs together, not even including the schools some of these clubs host. That's like 2-3 events every single weekend from March up to November.

So, here are the schedules.

There is also a full list of schools that each club has posted that I have not listed simply because I'm too lazy to. If you are interested in any of the schools, which I HIGHLY recommend if you are new, just ask me and I can get you more info.

Capital Driving Club also has about 6 Test & Tune events that I have not posted, again simply because I am lazy. They are all held on Sundays. If you are interested, just let me know and I can give you more info on them.

If anyone has ANY questions regarding AutoX in general, rules, clubs, dates, cars, classing, schools, tips, driving tips, setup tips, etc... you name it, please feel free to ask. I've been doing this for 6 full years now, going on my 7th. As I said at the beginning, I'm involved with a couple of clubs and know a TON of people involved with the others. I'm sure I can answer just about any question you have about this stuff and if I can't, I know someone who can.

Hope to see some new people out there!

Ah!

I think the autocross schools are great, even for folks that have done it for years. I could use a refresher myself.

Out of those schools, the WDCR, Evolution, and BMW schools are IMO the best and most worth your buck schools. Evolution probably being the absolute best one of them all (known nationally), the WDCR one is very good and the BMW one would probably be right behind it.

I've never done an Evolution school but know some of the instructors and they are top notch (national champions). You'll also get tons of very valuable seat time.

WDCR is great with a couple of national champions and national trophy winners as instructors. I've done their schools a few times and owe a lot to where I am now as a driver to them. Worth every penny. Notice they break their schools down into Level 1 and Level 2. If you've never autox'd before or maybe done only 1 or 2 events, choose the Level 1. If you've done more than a couple of events, just sign up for the Level 2.

The BMW schools in the past have not been known to be amazing but with a new committee this year, and myself as lead course designer and also an instructor in the schools, it should be well worth the money. We are looking to get better and more experienced instructors and will focus on getting as much seat time as possible. It is much cheaper than the other schools but you will still walk away with great knowledge and lots of seat time. Plus I may be your instructor

As for the Porsche ones, I can't speak for them as I've never attended one myself.

The Corvette Club I have volunteered to instruct at one once. I'd say it's easily the worst school, to put it lightly. Waaaay to much sitting and talking about autox rather than getting real seat time. Instructors aren't great. Course design was not the best. They only got like 3-4 full course runs and there weren't any other drills to learn from. Overall a BIG waste of time if you ask me.
