BMW CCA Club Racing HQ

About this event

Thank you for your interest in BMW CCA Club Racing. BMW CCA Club Racing is the premier club racing organization in North America. Our emphasis is on providing our BMW CCA members a safe, fun and competitive racing experience at some of the greatest racetracks in North America.

In order to apply for a BMW CCA Club Racing license, you need to have graduated from our BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School or have a current license from another recognized sanctioned racing organization (IMSA, SCCA, NASA, PCA, WRL, etc.). In addition to having a current license, you must also be able to provide documentation of 2-3 years of safe racing experience, preferably at a variety of race tracks across North America.

In 2023, we will be running vintage only run race groups at select events.  If you hold a valid license issued by a sanctioning body that is part of the Vintage Motorsports Council and also meet our medical requirements, you may be eligible for a complementary vintage run group only license.

BMW CCA Club Racing's full licensing poicy is here (does not reflect vintage licensing changes being evaluated now).

Please reach out to Katie Chulkas, our License Administrator, at kchulkas@bmwcca.org or 864.558.5936 if you have any questions.
