Tarheel Chapter's April HPDE on the VIR Full Course is one of seven that have been hand selected by Bridgestone to take part in the inaugural Bridgestone Potenza BMW CCA HPDE Tour. Bridgestone is launching an all-new tire this spring and is partnering with the Club to promote their latest offering via a coast-to-coast seven-stop HPDE tour. They specifically wanted to be involved in the Club's HPDE program as they felt this was the absolute best platform for them to educate potential customers about the new tire. Bridgestone will provide the following:
Onsite tire service (free to Bridgestone customers) and technical advice from Bridgestone's team of experts
Potential classroom tire talk sessions
Possible discounts or rebates from Bridgestone for HPDE participants

Come join us for a wonderful opportunity to experience the Repaved and Widened Full Course at Virginia International Raceway [VIR]. Learn more about VIR at www.VIRclub.com. Learn more about Tarheel Chapter BMW CCA Driver Schools at www.tarheelbmwcca.org under TRACK. Once again post-repaving all 3 of our schools are "In High Season" this year. The cost of renting on these High Season weekends is significantly greater than February and November and compounded by another VIR rate increase.
DRIVING SCHOOL STUDENTS
Must be BMW CCA members to participate per BMW CCA guidlines. Registration opens to current Tarheel Chapter members on 2/3/2015 at 8:00 PM EST. HPDS cost $450.00 Sat/Sun for BMW CCA members Only. Not a member of BMW CCA? Join at www.BMWCCA.org and hit the JOIN button. Ten days later registration opens to BMW CCA members from OTHER chapters.
Only Instructor Training School [ITS] students who have passed the Driver Skills Evaluation and students who have A-SOLO experience with Tarheel Chapter HPDS may register for Friday. Just as we have A-D run groups, we have added the category A-SOLO. Briefly stated the category qualifies those who score 5's in attitude and 11 or higher in all driving skill categories on their most recent Student Evals AND have completed four (4) Tarheel Chapter schools (8 days) in the "A" group over the past 3 years AND have two instructor recommendations on their evals for A-SOLO. Review your Log Book on Msreg.com. The cost to A-SOLO students for Friday, Sat, Sun is $675.00. At this time we can accommodate only six (6) A-solo students. Friday there will be a student meeting, brief classroom and Coaches will be available to you in car during at least one session and optionally throughout the day upon request. We provide a customized advanced curriculum with special sessions tailored to the requests of A-Solo participants. You will drive with the instructors on Friday giving potentially 7+ hours on track time. A-Solo may then be solo drivers with coached workshops on Saturday and Sunday.
Registration opens the same time as students and will not close until staffing is completed. Note we cannot confirm students until we have sufficient staff so please let us know early that you will be available to Instruct. Friday cost for instructors working Sat/Sun (and ITS candidates) is $155.00. (NOTE THE PRICE INCREASE) Not included are Instructors not available to instruct the weekend or A-B-C-D level students. Sat/Sun there is no charge for working instructors. Note: there will be NO lunch tickets for anyone this season. Lunch is available in the Pagoda at your own expense.
We have elected to forego the Saturday dinner option. Some other activity is currently in the planning stages.
PAYMENT PROCESSING HAS CHANGED
We have switched to "Required but Deferred" payment processing to ensure no one is charged until they're confirmed. That said, a valid card must be provided at registration, but we will not charge until we confirm you to the event. If your card is denied when we attempt to charge, you may languish on the waitlist. Please plan accordingly.
Everyone registers in the North Paddock at VIR on FRIDAY. Participants who attend Friday will register Friday AM around 8:30 AM. EVERYONE else registers Friday late afternoon/evening in the Paddock of the North Course. INSTRUCTORS working only Sat/Sun may check-in Saturday AM if you are not able to do so Friday evening. Please, everyone try to register Friday. Saturday morning check-ins are very hectic and stressful for everyone.
You must cancel by using the self-cancellation on Motorsportreg.com site and please, also email the Event Registrar via the MSR registrar contact link. The timestamp is automatically added to the private note letting organizers apply the refund policy. Students, if your cancellation was done PRIOR to 10 days before the Saturday of the school, you will get back the school fee less $50.00 processing fee. Cancellations after 10 days prior to Saturday's On Track for Students will NOT be refunded.
