Default San Diego online reg for autocross

If this post is a duplicate, feel free to delete, but SDBMWCCA now has online registration for their autocross events. Here's their announcement:

Hello Autocrossers:

Those of you on the Autocross Update email list are getting this news first:

After a lot of anticipation, the San Diego Chapter now offers advance registration for our autocross events online! Our next event is the “Sunday Drive Autocross” on May 27th, the weekend of Memorial Day, in the big West Lot. We’ll have a long, wide, fast course to let your BMW really stretch its legs. Our intent is to open registration online about 3 weeks before an autocross and close it a week before the event (or when it fills up). Registration is now open for this event, and it will close on May 19th. There will be no waiting list; if you miss advance registration (and we still have openings), you’ll be able to register the day of the event as before (still first-come, first-served). We are guaranteeing a slot for the first 10 non-BMWs, whether it’s online or on site. Confirmations will be emailed so you’re sure that you’re in if you register online.

Registrations are still accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, but this will eliminate the early morning lineup and the uncertainty about getting one of our limited openings. For fairness to everybody, the start date of advance registration for future autocrosses will be published in Fahren Affairs and on the website. No registrations will be accepted before that date. Advance registration will close one week before each autocross event or when all openings are filled. The $50 entry fee is payable by credit card using a secure connection via a BMW CCA-approved website.

Online Registration Process:

It’s easy to register online for San Diego Chapter Autocross events. We have selected MotorsportReg, a popular registration site for BMW Club events. As easy as 1-2-3:

1. Log onto Your first time, you must create a personal account (it’s free). Click on “Create an Account” and follow prompts to add your name, email address, and zip code. Next, add your address, emergency contact info, and create a sign-in name and password that you’ll remember. Now the fun part: enter your car information (multiple cars can be added later). You don’t need to select a preferred car number or transponder number; this template is also used for racing events. Also skip the next inquiry about experience for the same reason. Now your account is created for posterity! Next time, you can log in as a Returning Member with your password.
2. While logged into, you can now choose the upcoming Autocross from the page “Selected Upcoming Events.” From Event Calendar (with LOTS of events nationwide), narrow your search to Autocross events close to your home zip code and you’ll find our Qualcomm Stadium autocross. Click on √Register and you’re ready for the final step.
3. Now you should be reading text about San Diego’s autocross. Proceed by choosing the option for existing account or new user. Enter your sign-in name and password, read the text and continue to Attendee Options and click the appropriate answers (car, car class, BMW CCA membership, even your sandwich preference). Select BMW or non-BMW (limited to first 10), click your acceptance of our waiver, and move on to preview your order. The final step is to add your credit card information for a secure transaction. Finally, you will receive an online confirmation and email confirmation. You’re in!

See you at Qualcomm. Rest easy, now you can even sleep in an extra hour!
