    11/17/2012 - 11/18/2012 - Bimmerworld BMW CCA Club Race School (Summit Point)

    The Bimmerworld BMW CCA Club Race School focuses on situations inherent to racing and open track lapping as the majority of the on track sessions are held with other cars next to, in front of, and behind you at all times. This introduces the students to traffic, passing, and driving lines that they do not see in the typical high performance driving school. Exercises include driving the entire track for multiple laps both two and three cars abreast to develop spatial awareness, setting up passes coming into corners at speed and passing while exiting corners. These exercises, plus practice race starts and open track sessions, are designed to develop off-line competency and confidence, and combine all aspects of the learned material.

    The Bimmerworld BMW CCA Club Race School method of track instruction is unique in that instructors do not ride along with the students during the on track sessions. The instructors, who are primarily composed of seasoned racers, observe the students while driving their own cars. This allows the instructor to develop a greater sense of how a student is improving with respect to spatial and situation awareness, different lines, and traffic. The on track sessions are supported by 4+ hours of classroom time per day. While the classroom sessions support the on track experiences, car preparation, mental preparation, physical preparation, qualifying, the benefits of practice sessions, car setup topics, etc. are also presented to the students for discussion. The school is designed as a learning experience and not a speed contest. The emphasis is on driver development, so race prepared cars are not required and neither are driving suits, racing seats or harnesses. The Bimmerworld BMW CCA Club Racing School is open to Advanced Driver School students and Instructors only.

    Completion of the Bimmerworld BMW CCA Club Racing School does not automatically qualify you for a BMW CCA Club Racing license, but if you meet the experience and other requirements you will be eligible for a rookie license and the opportunity to join the ranks of BMW CCA Club Racing. Please note that acceptance to the club race school is at the discretion of the event chair and Club Race School Chief Instructor, and is not guaranteed.

    Club Race School is also on the main.
    I can't speak for this event but typically the CR School takes 1 run group.

    Steven is correct. This will be on the Main circuit. Though the race school is being run completely separately from our regular school, it will be effectively taking the place of one run group.
