Our purpose is to give you the opportunity to drive your car at speed and to experience more of the potential of the unique combination of car and driver. Our High Performance Driving Schools are real schools for anyone 18 or over with a valid driver’s license. Students will alternate between classroom sessions and time on the track with an instructor. The individualized instruction is a key to this program that has been developed over decades, and compares very favorably with commercial schools costing many times more. Our experienced instructors have come from racing, autocrossing and BMW CCA schools. They can help you develop your potential.
Students may register for the following prices:
|Driving School Student||$185|
|BMW Time Trial||$175|
|Instructors doing the Time Trial||$150|
A BMW CCA membership is required to participate. To join, go to www.bmwcca.org or call 800-878-9292. Registration fee is per driver.
This fall we will have a Time Trial group added to the lineup. You can either sign up for the driving school or the TT, but not both. Instructors are welcome to sign up for the TT group at a reduced rate as long as they are instructing that day. Information is on the Club Race page. Instructors, if you are also doing the TT, then you need to sign up for both events so we know you are instructing and driving in the TT group.
Safety, learning and fun are our priorities — in that order, safety first. And you will have FUN!

Volunteers at the Track
An event like this takes a lot of volunteer effort to put on. If you, a member of your family, or a friend would be interested in volunteering, please register online here with MotorsportReg.com. We need corner workers, pit & grid, runners, gate workers and more. Driving school students are particularly encouraged to volunteer on a day they are not in school. It provides a very different perspective and really completes the experience. BMW CCA membership is not required to volunteer.
Instructors and student classing / run groups
Students are assigned to one of three run groups (A, B, C or D) commensurate with their experience. D is where a new student would begin, and A is the most advanced run group. The groupings are relative and a function of who has enrolled in a given school. Therefore a student may be assigned to one group higher or lower than expected but there should not be great disparity within groups. Look for your run group when you get your schedule to see when and where you need to be during the day. Instructor supervision is required at all times while you are on the track. Helmet intercoms are used between the student and instructor to facilitate communication.
Sponsorship: We are looking for sponsorships at the $250 level. Contact Andrew Jordan
Check-in: There is no final check-in at the motel; it is at the track. There will be final check-in at the metal shelter in front of the concession stand. The electricity situation is uncertain, so check-in will proceed Friday afternoon, until it is dark, and we can no longer see.Saturday check-in in the early morning is also at the metal shelter, east of the concession stand..
Open Lapping Friday: Friday before the school will be a open lapping day. You can sign up and pay on the PMP website. http://www.pueblomotorsportspark.net/rc.html
