MORE TRACK TIME..... MORE CARS..... MORE SPEED....
ALL MARQUES WELCOME!!!
The Bluegrass Bimmers Chapter of the BMW CCA would like you to join us for our 3rd High Performance Driving Event at the brand new National Corvette Museum Motorsport Park (NCM). We will be driving the "Grand Max Loop" (2.87 mile) on Saturday and the "Grand Full Course" 23 turn, 3.2 mile configuration on Sunday.
We can teach you how and where you can go faster at NCM. 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 $475 for both Saturday and Sunday. Early registration is essential for this events success. There is no "early bird" discount. The price will increase to $525 30 days prior to the event on August 24th. Need some additional time to pay? Single day registration will be available for $275 each day. No NCM 1st timers will be allowed on Sunday without significant additional track experience. If you are wondering which group you would run in for the single day please contact Bill Wade. Spaces are limited!
We are offering our popular 'A-Solo" run group again WITH A SUPERSIZE OPTION OF 4 HOURS PER DAY ON TRACK!!!! These selected advanced students will have the option of not having an Instructor in the car or attend any classroom. To qualify, the Event's Chief Instructor 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 the highest level groups, 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, September 23rd. It is available for all instructors and qualified students, by invitation, for an additional cost of $175 for instructors and $200 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.

Due to the cost of the rental of this facility we will unfortunately have to charge instructors.

If the Instructor does not come on Friday the cost the driving sessions on Saturday and Sunday is $75. If you have not instructed with us before you will not be able to sign up as an Instructor until approved.
