Join the Golden Gate Chapter on August 1st & 2nd on the full 5 mile course at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA for the Bridgestone Potenza BMW CCA Golden Gate Chapter HDPE. This event is part of the national Bridgestone HPDE Tour 2015 & Bridgestone will provide onsite tire service for Bridgestone customers, technical advice, and showcase their latest performance tire—the Potenza RE-71R.
Thunderhill is a beautiful and challenging race track, making it a great place to learn the art of high-performance driving from the dedicated team of experienced GGC instructors. Some of our instructors have backgrounds in racing and many have started in our program as a student like you and advanced through to coaching. BMW CCA instructors are qualified via an intensive two-day instructor training program to ensure your safety and a consistent, high quality learning experience.
Our events are driving schools, not open track days; every student is assigned an instructor for the duration of the event. Our focus is on safety and learning. The price for this 2 day event is $600 for BMW CCA members ($648 for non-member and 1 year membership is included).
For advanced students, we are offering an Advanced Coaching program option ($400 extra) which includes two days of intensive 1:1 coaching with a dedicated driving coach paired with you for the weekend. It uses data acquistion equipment to carefully analyze every aspect of your driving. The Advanced Coaching program is designed to take the guess work out of driving to improve your driving accuracy.
Advanced Coaching students receive an extra driving session, doubling the track time. When not on track you and your coach will analyze each session's data in a classroom environment. Some of the data types that are evaluated include real-time GPS, RPM, throttle position, braking effort, and steering inputs. Your own driving data will be discussed after the session. This program can take you to the next step advancing your track driving skills.
Our HPDE and Advanced Coaching programs receive rave reviews from driving enthusiasts every year. You'll go home with new skills and a heightened awareness that you can apply to your daily driving as well as some great memories of doing laps at this fantastic racetrack.
