BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Race School

Palmer Motorsports Park

About this event

If you are wanting to take your driving skills beyond HPDE, or you're considering advancing to the ranks of BMW CCA Club Racing, the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School at Palmer Motorsport Park is the event is for you. The school is open to BMW CCA HPDE advanced students and instructors, as well as participants with equivalent driving experience from other recognized car clubs and organizations.

This BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School is hosted by the Boston and White Mountain Chapters of BMW CCA on, June 25-26, 2022.  This is 2 days on the 2.3 mile long course at Palmer Motorsport Park's Whiskey Hill Raceway which features 14 corners with lots of elevation changes.

At this school you will learn enhanced skills in:

  • Situational awareness
  • Using all of the track
  • Confidence in close quarters
  • Communicating with your car
  • Passing safely (close is safe)

Successful completion of the school will allow you to apply for a provisional (rookie) BMW CCA Club Race license and may qualify you for a NASA, SCCA, AER, Porsche, CASC-OR (Canada), or other race licenses.

The BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School consists of eight classroom sessions and eight track sessions. The classroom curriculum covers the fundamentals of closed circuit, door-to-door performance driving, competitive passing techniques, driver/race car preparation, and knowledge of BMW CCA Club racing rules.  On the track, you’ll experience various passing exercises, driving three-wide at speed, green-flag practice starts, and a simulated race exercise; all under the watchful eye of the BimmerWorld and BMW CCA Club Racing On-track Instructors. The learning is accelerated, the driving is fast, and the experience is unforgettable!

Any car suitable for use in a BMW CCA HPDE event can be used. Participants do not need a race prepared car, and all manufactures/models of cars are welcome. It is recommended that you utilize all the safety equipment that you and your car have at all times.

Event requirements

You must be a member of the BMW Car Club of America to register and participate in the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School. Click here to join the BMW CCA https://www.bmwcca.org

You may register now. However, before being accepted to attend the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School you must submit your driving resume (ASAP) to the Chief Instructor – Geoff Ehrman at geoff911sc@verizon.net  with Cc to Wayne Dobson at wayneldob@aol.com   If you’re not selected to attend, your payment will be refunded.

Your resume should detail:

  • Your current driver proficiency level (advanced, instructor and/or racer)
  • The make, model, year, and modifications to your car
  • Driving/racing organizations and tracks you have driven and total number of track days
  • The type of events (driving schools, club days, open lapping, race schools, time trials, etc.) that you have run
  • If you have been signed off to drive solo, how many track days you have driven solo
  • The name and email address for two references (HPDE Chief Instructor, driving instructor, racing coach or licensed racer)

Drivers are solely responsible for the safe condition of their vehicles, and for any damages to track property during the event.

All track vehicles will be required to undergo a technical inspection prior to the event using The Boston Chapter's HPDE Pre-Event Safety Inspection Form.  Inspections should be performed by a qualified individual or shop.  While this technical inspection is very important to your safety, a good technical inspection helps ensure you have a reliable car.  Car breakdowns and not completing all of the track exercises will prevent you from successfully completing the school. A technical inspection form and a short medical form (similar to what you would see at a HPDE) will be sent to you along with other Club Race school materials.
