This is your chance to experience the premier and legendary Watkins Glen road-course, with its top notch track facilities and GVCís High Performance Driving program. The town of Watkins Glen is located at the southern-most tip of Seneca Lake, a summer resort with nearby parks, lodging, restaurants, shops and fun activities for the whole family.

Just saw this topic, scrolling through the threads.
It is an old thread, and I hope I get a reply, but

Would you recommened this school if you just got your liscense, and you have some driving/racing experience, but not enough to be actually decent?

Thanks.

You do have to be 18 years old to participate. If you are, then any driving school is a great way to learn. You will be more confident and more capable. You will also learn that there are place to drive fast - it's on the racetrack, not public roads.

We are still putting together this years schedule, and we should have everything posted in another couple of weeks or less. Please check out http://www.gvc-bmwcca.org for the latest.
Thanks,
Jim Dresser

Hello again,

Thanks for the reply

I am not yet ready to drive but I am on my way!
If this school is still around in a few years, I am definetly willing to attend.
I do understand that racing is meant for the track, and is hazardous for not only for yourself, but to others around you. I understand that exceeding speeding limits to a high extent is not safe and should be used only in an emergency by drivers with years of experience.

I know that these schools are meant for the educating of ones understanding and controlling capabilities while driving. It sounds very fun, and I hope that I will have an oppurtunity to attend this school because it is the only one that I know of, which is closest to my area.

Thanks again,
-WeavingTraffuc

If you are in the area, anyone can make arrangments ahead of time to be a guest. Guests can see what's going on (it's always a good car show). Just contact me a week or two before the event.

Are you planning to offer a club racing school this year? The Boston Chapter had one in its schedule for last September at WGI and then it got cancelled (I was registered and bummed out)...

Sorry, but the GVC is not putting on a Club Racing school. We are putting on a Club Race at our Sept event. Check out the Club Racing Event Schedule at http://www.bmwccaclubracing.com for a list of all races and schools.
