April 13-14, NJMP Thunderbolt, Driver School & Instructor Training School Register here: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/driver-school-instructor-training-thunderbolt-raceway-bmw-cca-new-jersey-999455#.VMpCNsaDQ-8 Registration fee: $425 Start the season off right with our Driver School and Instructor Training School. We are again holding the event at NJMP to make it easier for our members to attend but we are now on Thunderbolt! Thunderbolt Raceway is a 14 turn, 2.25 mile road course designed by the owners of VIR with help from the legendary Carroll Shelby. Since 2008 a number of professional racing series have held events at Thunderbolt Raceway. Driver School: For this year, we are accepting students at all skill levels. If you attended our Introduction to the Track event last October (either as a First-timer or a seasoned veteran), come on out, knock the rust off your driving and reinforce all the good things you learned. Note that the Driver School portion of the event will have only 2 student run groups so there may be a somewhat broader range of skill in each run group. Instructor Training School: Participation in the Instructor Training School is by invitation only. The Instructor Training School is for advanced students who have shown a high level of driving skill, an understanding of driving dynamics and a desire to teach. The program is a rigorous two days of on-track and classroom instruction and role-playing. If you have been invited, you can register online. Please be sure to use the ITS Candidate registration radio button so you are properly enrolled. Your acceptance will be subject to approval by the ITS Coordinator and Chief Instructor. If you believe that you are a candidate for the ITS and have not been invited, please e-mail the Chief Instructor. ITS candidates should plan to bring the car they usually use for driver schools as a portion of the evaluation process requires candidates to drive their vehicle. For 2015, registration for all NJ Chapter on-track events will be via Motorsportreg.com. If you are already a member of Motorsportreg, this will greatly simplify your registration process and you know what to do. If you are not a member of Motorsportreg, sign-up is simple. Just start here and follow their directions. Please be aware of our Participation and Cancellation Policies: Participants must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid driver’s license. Per requirements of BMW CCA national office, all STUDENT participants must be members of BMW CCA. Please include your BMW CCA membership number in your Profile. If you are not yet a BMW CCA member, we have a promotion to make it easy to join. NJ BMW CCA does not allow convertibles of any kind nor SAV/SUVs at our on-track events. Spec Miatas are acceptable if they have a full roll-cage, permanently attached hard-top and current SCCA log book. They must also comply with all vehicle Technical Inspection requirements. Note that all after-market tinting must be approved in advance by the Chief of Tech.  Failure to obtain pre-approval may result in your car failing Tech Inspection and loss of your registration fee. Any damage caused to the paddock or track, including safety barriers, is the responsibility of the participant. Note that the track may collect payment on-site. Cancellations will be accepted until two weeks prior to the start date of an event. Any cancellation received on or prior to the respective cancellation date will be charged a $25.00 handling fee. Any cancellation request following the cancellation date is subject to forfeiture of the entire entry fee if the Registrar is unable to fill your slot. If your slot is filled, only the $25 handling fee will apply. If you are a “no show” at the event, no refund will be given. All cancellations must be communicated in writing via e-mail or letter through the Registrar. If NJ BMW CCA must cancel an event for any reason, registrants will be provided a full refund; however, NJ BMW CCA will not be liable for any charges or costs registrants may incur other than the registration fee. Refunds will be issued following the event.
