Mar 28/29 DE and CR at MSR

The Lone Star Chapter of the BMW CCA is pleased to announce our annual Spring High Performance Driver’s Education and Club Race event presented by Classic BMW of Plano to take place at Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, Texas on March 28-29, 2009. Please see http://lscbmwcca.org/hpde-home.html for more information on this event. We will be running the 1.7 mile course in the normal counterclockwise direction. We anticipate registration to open on http://motorsportreg.com/ on Monday February 2nd.

This entry fee will be $275 for the lower run groups and $195 (yes that price is rolled back to 2003 pricing!) for the solo groups.

New this year is our “refer a friend” program. For every person you get that puts your name down in the “referred by” line on their entry you will get a $50 credit towards your entry (you need to participate in the event to take advantage of this credit). Be sure to give your name (real name, not internet screen name) and a valid email address (to ensure you get your entry credits) to the people you refer. The only requirement to the program is that the referred person could not have done a DE with us in 2008.

With the feedback I have received from this program, I would not hesitate in signing up for the event. Once we are full, we are full and a wait list will be started. Don’t get shut out!

Please see the specific registration info on http://motorsportreg.com/. I anticipate we will have all the necessary info up on there a week before registration opens (if not sooner).

If you need more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me at dechair at lscbmwcca dot org.

See you at the track,
Bruce

One where you will most likely have an instructor in the car the entire weekend. The higher groups allow for solo drivers. The lower 2 groups will have instructors in the car for all sessions for 90% of the drivers.

If you have done less than 5 DEs you will most likely be in one of the lower groups.

I have been working on the schedule and I can't get a 4 DE group format to work, so we will have our normal 3 DE group format for this weekend. Sorry for any problems this creates for anybody.

T minus one week til registration opens. We have the page up on motorsportreg.com but I'd like to hit the high points. Registration opens on Monday February 2 at 12:01am Central time.

1. when you sign up there will be no payment collected initially (this is due to the "refer a friend" promotion). You will be billed for the entry later, after you have been accepted to the event.
2. If you are doing the refer a friend make sure the referrer has given the referee this full REAL name and email address (this allows us to notify the referrer that they have had one of their referees sign up).
3. Payments will be handled thru Paypal.com. Please visit Paypal.com ahead of time to get that part set up.
4. Please us a good email address, much of the paperwork for the event will be distributed via email.
5. Note that if you receive a "refer a friend" credit and your referee cancels, you will be responsible for paying back the $50 credit you received.
6. Note that convertible rules are very strict and all convertibles will be required to be teched by our sponsor, Classic BMW in Plano.

If you have any questions please email me at dechair@lscbmwcca.org

Here is the link to the event: http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.c...A2715BC350CABF

See you at the track,
Bruce

When you sign up you will put in your driving history. We will confirm history and place you in the appropriate group. If you think you are placed in the incorrect group and your instructor agrees you can be moved to another group.

You will need to have a significant level of experience to be placed in the advanced group.

Sign up for intermediate. Fill in the driving resume with everything you have done before (autox, DE, whatever). If we have a question we will contact Apex (or whoever you have run with before). If we misclass you we can move you around during the weekend. But I am confident that if you are int with Apex you will fit in int with us. I have run with Apex a few times before.

hmmm...you might be able to rent one from MSR, but I wouldn't count on it. M rated helmets are ok and you can pick them up for around $100. If you are running Int with Apex you need your own helmet. :-)

If you have friends (refer a friend credits that you might get or not) that are wanting to join us in the novice group and are waiting til the last minute to sign up, please note that the novice group is more than 70% full. If you wait til March 1 I can pretty much guarantee that we will be on a waitlist for this group.

One makes the difference between drivers with lower run status. Like is there some qualification one must meet in order to get out of having an instructor in the car???--JC

Yes there are standards that must be met to be signed off solo. However, being signed off solo should never be anybody's goal.
