BMW CCA Club Racing Expands 2024 Challenge Contests!

What sets BMW CCA Club Racing apart is the spirit founded in the belief that the fun of the friendly competition is more important than the results and that mutual assistance among racers, when possible, enhances the experience for all.  In 2024 we’ll step up the competition element within that spirt, adding to our longstanding National Championship competition recognizing P1, P2 and P3 podium winners in each recognized BMW CCA Club Racing class.  For 2024, Club Racing will expand the existing Can-Am Challenge with two additional Challenges withing the fourteen race ‘24 calendar:

The Can-Am Challenge:  Paying homage to the historic Can-Am series that spanned the Canadian and United States border from 1966-1974, the Can-Am expands this year to include the Club Races at NJMP-Thunderbolt, NJMP-Lightning, CTMP and WGI.

The Blue Ridge Challenge: 2024 is the inaugural run for this challenge, to run at VIR in March, Summit Point in May, Indy in June, Summit Point again in July, and finishing up at our second VIR race in October.

Also kicking off in 2024, the Southern Challenge will include Road Atlanta in March, Roebling Road in June, CMP in October, the second Road Atlanta date in November, and finishing with the season finale at Roebling in December.

P1 Champions from each Challenge will be determined as follows:

  1. Points calculations:
    1. For each Challenge, Club Racing will recognize and award trophies to P1 class winners for points earned at the tracks within each relevant Challenge.  We will make these calculation race designation agnostic (so straight points – every Challenge series points calculation will be at 100% for all races, no participation points, no premiums for Premier, NAC, and National event designations)
    2. Drivers are eligible to compete in all the three Challenges and are eligible for points in each.
    3. To be eligible for Challenge awards at season end, drivers must complete at least 50% of the races scheduled in the Challenge(s) in which they compete.
    4. For 2024, we will continue the Canada vs USA element within the CanAm (using specific driver pairings at each race for Canada v. USA calculations) and will continue to award the CanAm trophy to the winning nation (note that we are considering how to simplify how Canada v. USA is calculated for ’25).
  1. We will discontinue the current regional points structure for 2024 (National points continue as specified in the current rule book).
  1. We have also changed the methodology regarding Regular and Premier race status (rule update below)

Premier Events

Premier events are 3 day events where up to four points races are allowed with one race being designated in advance as the Feature Race. The Feature Race and one additional race will be worth 150 percent position points. The two remaining races will be worth 100 percent points. If a race weekend is scheduled for 3 days and is not designated as a National or NAC event, it will default to a Premier event (Regular events will be the default for 2 day events not carrying a National or NAC designation).

Challenge accepted!
