BMW CCA Driving Schools at Pacific Raceway

Our First Driving School Event of the 2011 season

April 28th, Thursday, is our first driving school event for 2011. It should be a terrific event.
As is our custom, we will have both a Car Control Clinic (CCC) $95.00 and a High Performance Driving School (HPDS) $195.00 running concurrently. To participate you must have a valid driver’s license, be a BMW CCA Club member or a member of another club we reciprocate with (PNWR PCA, NWARC, Audi Club NW, BMW ACA Portland, Puget Sound Mini Motoring Club).
The CCC is a prerequisite for the HPDS. If you have never done a CCC or the equivalent, this is a good time to sign up and give it a try. The activities include slalom, emergency braking, collision avoidance, wet skid pad, and handling oval, touring laps of the road racing course and rides with the instructor. You do not need a helmet or a tech inspection and convertibles/roadsters are welcome.
The HPDS is the real deal; this is about as exciting as it gets in your BMW! Instruction is provided for students of all levels. More experienced drivers can be signed off to drive solo for the day but this is the exception rather than the rule. These are, in fact, driving schools intended to make you a more proficient every day driver. You can register on www.motorsportreg.com; until April 22nd.
You will need a helmet and your vehicle must be inspected by an ASE certified mechanic. Starting this year your technical inspection is valid for the entire 2011 year.
One more opportunity is available to you. If you would like to learn more about this whole “track thing” but you’re not quite ready to sign up, come on out and volunteer to assist our staff. We need people to chase cones for the CCC. You can get a good look at what goes on and decide whether this is something your want to try in 2011.
For further information go to our club’s web site: www.bmwpugetsound.com and click on driving schools.
. Contact me if you might be interested in this. Join the fun!

See you in the paddock.
I'll be out with the PCA gang on the 21st too. Can't wait to get back on the track with fresh front rotors, rebuilt calipers, and fresh PF-01 brake pads. It's been a long winter

brutal, but probably better to get that figured out before the track day rather than during the track day...

still sucks.

Isn't that how WA naturally is?

This sounds like it would have been amazing to go, really sucks that I had to miss out :/ With any luck, next time.

Amazing day today! There were quite a few E9X M3 in attendance and the weather held out. Not one drop of rain. It was great meeting new faces!
