Re: Perpetual Hotel for Event Thread (priceline, etc)

George: I had to read some of this thread as I always use Orbitz and just a get 2 * Star hotel for when I go down to SD for the BMWCCA events, but I stayed at the Marriott which is 2 miles away from the stadium. Great hotel but $130 a night. So I just tried PRICELINE. Bid $60...........and BINGO! Ad...

Re: SMOG the results

Congratulations! Your motor runs perfect, that's just how they are, not low on CO/HC but not too good on Nox, they tend to run lean.All numbers look good, the way they should be. Our 99 M3 with 59K smogged the same. Bob, Max is right. Even on my E46 M3 I smogged it and it passed (just shy of almost...

Re: How to prep car to pass smog?

Stock 95m3 is due & it should pass, but to get a little edge: Don't know if your car would pass smog but assuming all the stock emission parts are on the car and in working order, just drive the car hard (say some nice twisty canyons in San Diego) or hop on the freeway, for about half an hour. Then...

Re: Pro Solo & National Tour

Their number system doesn't go as high as I would like, so instead of running 314, I will be running 14 (only have to ask my wife to make one replacement number) National Tours and ProSolo events use the 1-99 numbering system and you add 100 to that number for your co-driver. Thus 14 for you and if...

Re: Still time to sign up for SFR Divisional

I wasn't too involved, this year, and didn't even sign up until the day I put this post up here. I think we kind of fast tracked the process, as the big lot at GA became available at the last moment, and didn't have anyone on point to publicize the event outside the region. Result is we only have a...

Exactly Matt. Christine is our points keeper and she hasn't gotten to updating the current yearly totals. I'm sure she will as soon as she can. Or she'll reply here and let you know the status.

Hello all, I raced autoX many years ago in the 70's and may get back into it. Back then it was just club events in the class we called C Sedan. Now I'm looking into it again and was going through the rules and trying to find out if there is a class for my 2000 Pontiac Grand Am. Can anyone point me ...
