BMW CCA @ COTA in June, October 2013

Wanted to give you guys a heads-up that the Circuit of the Americas will be hosting a couple of BMW CCA events next year. I got an email last night the contract is signed and deposits are in place for the following:
  • June 7-9: DE + racing
  • October 4-6: racing + other questionable depending on sign-ups

If you want to attend the DE, you'd better have participated in at least 2 events with a Texas chapter in the last two years, as that's how they're opening up registration. After that, you need to at least be a member of a Texas chapter. And after THAT, you need to be a member of the CCA. Doubt they'll make it out of the second round before the wait list begins.

If you want to race, you may have pretty good chance of getting in if you're part of the South Central region (which includes Rocky Mountain Chapter!!) since they're thinking about (no guarantees!) opening registration a tad early for SC region before going National.

I have no idea how much it's going to cost. I don't care. I'll be there in June at a minimum for the racing (woot! rookie license! ) I've seen al sorts of posting about whether COTA is renting out the full track or the short course. It was confirmed to me: the FULL COURSE will be driven.

I'll be down at COTA in May for the V8 Supercars races doing a little reconnaissance. 2013 is already turning out to be a helluva a season! Thank you, Texas!!

You need to have done them in the last two years (registration will open in Jan.) Bummer but the only real way to do it will be through the club race.

I was at the F1 race and I have to say the track is phenomenal, would be amazing to do a track day or club race there.

signes, I know you had to have passed Comp School... did you ever get your license? All you'd need is a car!!

Bruce said he's investigating rentals... If you send in your application this weekend, I would highly recommend expediting. It took a solid 6 weeks to get my approval back. Would be great to have some rookie Rocky MountIn company!

Oh, and the silver E36 M3 is still FS. Prepping it to be race-ready for May & June would certainly keep a person busy...
