Experience the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Race School
If you’re considering advancing to the ranks of the TireRack BMW CCA Club Racing Series, or just interested in accelerating your BMW driving experience, the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Race School is the event is for you. The school is open to advanced BMW CCA HPDE students and instructors, as well as participants with equivalent driving experience from other recognized organizations.
The BimmerWorld BMW CCA Race School is a safe, fun and intense learning experience designed to teach you the fundamentals of BMW CCA Club Racing. Successful completion of the school will allow you to apply for a rookie (which is provisional) BMW CCA Club Race license. Successful completion will qualify you for a CASC-OR regional race license (Canada), and may quality you for a NASA, SCCA, AER or other race licenses.
Unlike the large variety of professional race schools, the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Race School offers the opportunity to drive your own car. The experience is less expensive and more relevant to your actual driving situation.
The learning is accelerated, the driving is fast, and the experience is unforgettable! Any car suitable for use in a BMW CCA HPDE event can be used. Participants do not need a race prepared car, and all manufacturers/models of cars are welcome. Note that helmets must be either Snell SA2010 (through 2021 only) or newer (Snell SA2015, SA2020).
The BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Race School weekend consists of eight classroom sessions and eight track sessions. The classroom curriculum covers the fundamentals of closed circuit, door-to-door performance driving, competitive passing techniques, driver/race car preparation, and knowledge of BMW CCA Club racing rules.
On the track you’ll experience corner passing, driving three-wide at speed, green-flag practice starts, and a full simulated race exercise all under the watchful eye of the BimmerWorld and BMW CCA Club Racing Instructors and on-track coaches. After each on-track session, the coaches and students review what transpired on the track. Sharing learnings, making observations and reviewing mistakes as a group allows for different perspectives and enhances the learning environment. A considerable amount of effort is aimed at the mental aspects of racing and not just the mechanics of moving the car around the pavement.
When you register for the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Race School, you’ll see that the cost to students attending the two-day school varies depending on the venue and Chapter sponsoring the event (genearlly, the cost is slightly higher than HPDE registration).
In addition to your registration, you must submit a detailed resume of your driving experience. The Chief Instructor will review your resume and approve your registration/attendance via Motorsportsreg.com.
Your driving resume must detail:
- Your current driver proficiency level
- The make, model, year, and modifications to your car
- Driving/racing organizations and tracks you have experience with
- The total number of track days you have run over how many years
- The type of events (driving schools, club days, open lapping, race schools, time trials, etc.) that you have run
- If you have been signed off to drive solo, how long ago and how many track days you have driven solo
- The name and email address for two references (HPDE Chief Instructor, driving instructor/coach or licensed racer)
- Your familiarity with the track where the school is being conducted (we have found that learning the course material while also learning a new track hurts the ability to fully profit from the our track learning – we’ll want to disucss it with you if you have not previously driven the venue).
