Your registration for the Bimmerfest track day does NOT include entry to Bimmerfest 2018. You'll pay $20 at the gate to enter the show. ***All drivers, guests and spectators have to be through the front gate by 7:30 or they will have to pay $30 instead of $20 to get an infield parking pass. By 9:30am infield access may be sold out.*** Please visit http://www.bimmerfest.com/bmw-events/Bimmerfest-2018/ for additional details.
NOTE: Speed Ventures discounts and account credits cannot be used towards Bimmerfest track event entry fees.
Auto Club Speedway is located at 9300 Cherry Ave., Fontana, CA 92335. Use the main entrance to the track off Cherry Ave. and, once through the gate, drive to the left side of the Speedway and then curve right to get to the tunnel which takes you into the interior of the track.
ARRIVAL TIME: please show up at the track by 7:00am and go straight to Registration in Garage 2 (G2), the second garage, to check in. Please check in BEFORE unloading or working on your car. Check-in will close at 8:00 and the Drivers' Meeting may begin as early as 7:40am (depending on your run group) in the Drivers Lounge (also in G2). The Drivers Meeting is mandatory for all drivers - unless you have received prior clearance from Speed Ventures to show up late.
Drivers with GARAGES: garages are now assigned. If you are with a group, please let us know and we'll put you with your group. Otherwise, they are assigned the morning of the event on a first come/first served basis.
GASOLINE: 98oct and 110oct fuel can only be pumped into full race vehicles and will not be sold to drivers with streetable cars. Gas jugs must labelled "RACING FUEL for USE IN COMPETITION VEHICLES ONLY". In addition a CARB form must be filled out for each purchase (we will have forms available at the track). Make sure you show up with enough gas to run your first session at least! There will be no gas available until 8:45am. The schedule for gas is on the hour, every hour until 4pm. The attendant will only wait for 10 minutes to sell gas. Gas is purchasable only using CASH ONLY. Speed Ventures does not guarantee that race fuel will be available. If it is critical to running your car, you might consider bringing your own.
LOADING IN the day before: if you want to unload on Friday night, you must notify us in advance and we will let you know if it is possible (it is 99% of the time) and let you know the hours available for loading in (usually 4pm-7pm, but sometimes 6pm-7pm). We must give your name to security to grant you access. Saturday load in is possible all day up until 6pm (gates lock at 7pm).
CAMPING is not allowed inside the Speedway for this event.
Car Numbers: You must have car numbers, at least 8" tall, located on both sides and either the front or back of your vehicle. This is mandatory for all drivers.
TOW HOOKS or a suitable TOW POINT are required on the FRONT of your car (and recommended on the rear) . If you do not have a tow hook or tow point established for the front of your car, please figure out a tow point we can use to hook on to in order to pull you off track in the event of a mechanical problem. You are responsible for establishing a tow point - Speed Ventures is not responsible for any damage done to your car.
The TECH FORM is a must-have at the event. Be sure to print it out, fill it out before the event, and bring it with you to registration:http://www.speedventures.com/events/tech.pdf
