    The Golden Gate Lotus Club announces a tentative schedule of dates for our Lotus Autocrosses in 2021.

    GGLC Autocrosses are designed to allow the Lotus and sports car enthusiast enjoy driving in controlled conditions without random traffic and law enforcement. GGLC autocross is the perfect place to explore the the capability of your car.

    What is an Autocross?

    An autocross is a driving event where you can drive your car on a closed temporary course. A typical autocross course is marked out with orange traffic pylons and is driven at lower speeds. Drivers are timed while on course and hitting a pylon adds a 1 second penalty. Typically the course is layed out to test a driver's skill and the cars handling and agility. GGLC events are low-key, fun and encourage drivers to enjoy and learn about their cars.

    GGLC AUTOCROSS FORMAT
    GGLC Autocross events will be will have a limited number of drivers to allow drivers to get a large number of runs. Drivers are broken into groups and the groups rotate between running and working. All drivers are required to work.

    Drivers are asked to arrive early to help set-up and to attend a driver's meeting before the first run group.

    GGLC Autocross Chair: Colm Gavin - autocross"at"gglotus.org
    Feel free to email Colm any questions concerning the GGLC Autocrosses.

    For newbies and novices, there will be experienced drivers available at the event to give you tips and coaching.

    This season, we have “official” numbers. Please email your request for your numbers to: autocross"at"gglotus.org

    Assistance- putting on a autocross, is very much a volunteer effort. There are a couple of areas, that we require a pool of helpers to cover. Two or three to get the equipment set up. 8-10 people to help set up the course. You will need to be on site 7:00- 7:15, to get started.

    IMPORTANT! Please review and familiarize yourself with the GGLC Autocross Rules.

    ALLOWED & NOT ALLOWED CAR/VEHICLES: (These are guidelines. The GGLC Autocross Event Chair has the right to bar any vehicle from competeting for safety.)

  • Allowed: Sports cars, passenger sedans, go-karts (Check SCCA Solo Rules for a current list of allowed vehicles) SCCA Solo Classes)

    This will be a points event for club members. Five 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. Please make your car number highly visible (blue tape on blues cars is not highly visible!)

    If you drive at the event you're required to honor your work assignment.
