Event: Driver School and Instructor Training School Dates: March 31 - April 2 Track: Thunderbolt Raceway at New Jersey Motorsports Park Register on Motorsportreg We "hit for the cycle" in our very first event of the season with a driver school, instructor training school, special advanced driver school day on Friday and the return of our Introduction to the Track run group on Sunday. FOR 2017, THIS IS A JOINT EVENT WITH THE DELAWARE VALLEY CHAPTER! Driver School: The regular driver school portion of the event will be on the weekend of April 1-2 (no foolin'). No need to take 2 days off work to start the season. You have no excuse not to come on out, knock the rust off your driving and reinforce all the good things you learned last year. Note that the Driver School portion of the event will have our usual 3 student run groups! 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 here. 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. Friday Special Track Day: On Friday there will be 6 hours of track time (sharing with ITS) for instructors who wish to get in some extra track time and for approved advanced Solo students. Solo students will only see the option for this registration if they are pre-approved (contact the Registrar). Instructors who are only driving on Friday and not instructing for the weekend must pay the student fee. Solo students who also register for the weekend school will receive a $50 discount at the time we charge your card. Introduction to the Track run group: On Sunday we will be holding a special school for students who have never been to the track. This event was offered for the first-time in 2009 and was a run-away success. We have designed this event to encourage students who are new to the track to try out our Driver School program. The Driver School Committee understands that there are hurdles for “first-time” students to overcome to try one of our events and so we have designed this school to reduce those hurdles as much as possible. First, the event is being held locally. Hotel rooms in the Millville area are relatively low priced and, for students who live in southern NJ/PA, you could even get up early and drive down the morning of the event. Second, we are offering reduced registration fees to our First Timers so that you pay just $200 for Sunday-only. You will not find a better rate to get out on the track with personalized instruction anywhere. Third, this event will have a dedicated run group solely for First Time students. This arrangement will allow instruction on the track and in the classroom to be specific for First Time students and will provide a smaller run group for First Time students allowing better spacing on the track. Fourth, for our First Time students, we may also be able to loan you a helmet for the event (please see Promotions). Fifth and finally, each First Time student will be assigned a Mentor who will contact you prior to the event and be a point of contact to answer any questions you might have before you arrive. Every year we have held this event, each new student leaves with a huge smile on their face. [Note: If you are a new student and prefer the full weekend, you are welcome to register for the regular Driver School.] Saturday banquet: We will be holding a track-side dinner on Saturday night. Your banquet ticket is included for full weekend participants. Tickets may also be purchased for guests and for Sunday Introduction to the Track students. Registration Fees: Sat-Sun Driver School students: $500 Friday Solo Students: $275 Friday-Sunday (3-day) advanced students: $725 (discount applied at check-out) ITS Candidates: $525 Friday Instructors (driving): $125 Sunday First Time students: $200 Saturday Banquet: $25 Please note the following: Helmets with SNELL 2010 rating or newer are now required!! 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.

Spec Miatas (and similar) are acceptable if they have a full roll-cage, permanently attached factory 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.

Event: Driver School and Club Race to benefit the Westlake School Dates: June 19-20 Track: Lightning Raceway at New Jersey Motorsports Park Register on Motorsportreg LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE IN 2017!! Please come join us for our traditional June Driver School and Club Race event to benefit the Westlake School to be held at our home track at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ. We will have our usual banquet, auction fundraiser and special giveaways. This year the event will be held on Lightning Raceway.  This is a perfect spectator event given the proximity of the track to the majority of our members, the excitement of Club Racing and the joy of the kids from the Westlake School who come as our guests. Take a personal day and come out to the track! Sponsors will be announced soon.: Driver School: We anticipate a full school for this event based on our success of past years. However, because we also hold a Club Race at this event, we may only have two student run groups (depending on student and racer registrations). It is likely that one of the groups will be for Advanced students with the second group being Beginner/ Intermediate. The final determination of how to allocate students between the groups will be made by mid-MAY based upon both registrations and payments received. To accommodate the maximum number of students possible, there may be a greater range of driving skills than usual in each group. If you send a payment and we cannot accommodate you, you will receive a full refund (i.e., a cancellation fee will not be assessed). As always, acceptance preference is based upon the date your payment is received by the registrar. REGISTER EARLY TO SECURE YOUR PLACE IN THE SCHOOL! We will have a Monday evening banquet with door prizes and special auction items to benefit Westlake School in keeping with our tradition of a track-side dinner at summer schools. BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School: Please note that we will NOT hold a club racing school at this event this year. Club Race: This is a Premier Event this year for Club Racing!
