GGLC AUTOCROSS FORMAT
5 timed runs, counting towards the point series for each GGLC member. With fun runs (timed) for the rest of the day. Non club members
think of this as a fun/practice event. 1 second penalty per cone hit .
Only GGLC members can compete for points. Others should only register choosing fun/practice option provided.
GGLC members running for points must properly fill out their car class and Index information. Remember,
we will score your points using indexed times based on this information. It is your responsiblity to enter correct
information. When unsure please contact us for clarification. See below on details of indexed times calculation.
Incorrect car class and Index information may lead to artifically low indexed times which in turn will unjustly
place you ahead of others. If this happens and others protest event organizers will correct results once the truth is established.
We use permanent number system throuout entire year race season and don't allow duplicate numbers.
Acceptable numbers are given from the pool 1...999. Leading zeroes are ignored (i.e. 042 and 42 is the
same number). Once the number is used it stays with that driver.
If you want to use your own car numbers or want to change number please contact us to make sure your
desired number is not taken already by some one else. Chuforia graffix is the official graphics provider
for the GGLC. You can order numbers or any other car graphics from them.
If you drive at the event you are required to honor your work assignment for entire day. If you have some kind
of emergency situation please exercise common courtesy and work it out with event chair so that your
position can be covered.

For Lotus Elise/Exige/Evora drivers, please choose your class that you want to participate in and also use the classification tool at
