The 2nd Annual Driving School Bluegrass Bimmers at National Corvette Museum Motorsport Park
May 15-17, 2015
The Bluegrass Bimmers Chapter of the BMW CCA would like you to join us for our 2nd annual Driving School event at the brand new National Corvette Museum Motorsport Park (NCM). We will be driving the "Grand Full Course" 23 turn, 3.2 mile configuration. Students undergo a mixture of classroom and behind-the-wheel education under the supervision of trained instructors. The course of study includes vehicle dynamics, vehicle limits and limitations, driving line and track safety. Cars must undergo technical and safety inspections prior to coming to the event. Helmets are required (Snell 2005 or newer); a limited number of loaner helmets are available.
The cost for this event is $495 for both Saturday and Sunday. An early bird discount is available for registrations through March 1st for the reduced price of $475. Single day registration will be available for $250 each day. No Novices will be allowed on Sunday. If you are wondering which group you would run in for the single day please contact Bill Wade. Spaces are limited!
NEW!! We are offering an 'A-Solo" run group. These selected advanced students will have the option of not having an Instructor in the car or attend any classroom. To qualify, the Chapter's Chief Instructor and Driving Events Committee will review the students driving resume as noted on MotorsportReg. (Completeness of past driving history listed on your MSR account is essential). The review of the student's past High Performance Driving Schools events featuring in-car instruction will be considered. Review of the history over the last three-years and the numbers of days in "A" group, and how many of those signed off is significant. The Chapter has full discretion on acceptance of the candidate's credentials.
A Track Orientation Day is scheduled for Friday, May 15th. It is available for all instructors and qualified students, by invitation, for an additional cost of $175 for students. Students interested in being considered for attending should check the appropriate box on the application form. We will contact you after evaluating your previous experience to inform you if you have been accepted. Completeness of past driving history listed on your MSR account is essential. The Chapter has full discretion on acceptance of the candidate's credentials.
Due to the cost of the rental of this facility we will have to charge instructors. The Instructors fee for the Friday Track Orientation Day and the driving sessions on Saturday and Sunday is $250. If the Instructor does not come on Friday the cost is $75. NEW ! - Instructors wanting to have only one student can pay $375 for the 3 days of the weekend or $200 for Saturday & Sunday. If you have not instructed with us before you will not be able to sign up as an Instructor. Please contact Chief Instructor Bill Wade (firstname.lastname@example.org) w/ your driving/instructing resume for evaluation.
Please be aware: all Instructor, "A- Solo" and "A" run group sessions will be run under the "open passing" passing anywhere on the track, with the 'point by' rules of course.
