The Advanced Car Control Clinic builds upon the street safety skills taught in the regular Car Control Clinic and introduces performance driving skills and techniques.
Before registering, please take a look at the regular Car Control Clinic Overview and student packet for important information. Note, there will be additional required reading for the advanced clinic, which will be distributed to registered students prior to the event. In the meanwhile, please review the regular clinic student packet. The tech inspection and waiver requirements are the same for the advanced clinic. In addition, the glossary of terms and regular CCC exercises should be reviewed as a refresher. The advanced clinic will have different exercises and a different schedule (start time will be earlier at 7:30am, and the clinic will conclude a little later at 6pm). If you have any questions, please contact the Car Control Clinic event team via email (

The Advanced CCC is targeted at anyone who is interested in performance driving, including novice HPDE and autocross participants, as well as intermediate participants who are interested in refining their performance-driving skills. The program’s exercises entail more advanced skills and topics like cornering theory, driving lines, advanced braking techniques (such as trail-braking), dynamic weight transfer, and heel-and-toe shifting. Previous attendance at a regular car-control clinic or other high-performance-driving event is a pre-requisite.

Helmets will be required (a limited number of club loaner helmets are available).

Sorry, cars only, no SUVs/high center of gravity vehicles will be allowed.

All you need to attend is a membership in the BMW Club, a valid driver's license, and the registration fee which includes lunch. (You will also need to complete a Minor Waiver if you are under 18.)  Two-driver cars are allowed (two separately registered drivers sharing one car).

Helmets are required for the advanced clinic. Your helmet must meet the club’s helmet standards and must be inspected at check-in. The helmet must be certified as Snell M2010 or SA2010 (older M2005 and SA2005 helmets are also acceptable).

The May 4, 2013 Advanced Car Control Clinic will be held at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, CA (Directions to Candlestick Park). Check-in for registered students opens at 7:30am. The event concludes at 6:00pm. The cost is $160 for BMW Club members and $208 for non-club members, which includes a one year membership in the BMW Club. You must be a member of the BMW Car Club of America to participate. You do not have to own a BMW to join the BMW Club or to participate in our driving events.
Our Clinics are open to all club members wanting to learn more about enhancing their driver skills and understanding the capabilities of their cars. If you have been thinking about or planning to attend a track school, clinics are a prerequisite for first time track school students. We explore the many situations of vehicle dynamics in a controlled environment, with you in the driver’s seat. The program is structured for people without any formal performance driving experience. Our goal is to prepare you with a fundamental foundation of skills from which you can further develop your driving abilities. Each participant receives personalized instruction provided by experienced club Instructors. The level of instruction is tailored to fit the need of each individual student.
