Join the Golden Gate Chapter on November 11 & 12th on the 3 mile east course at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA for our fall '17 HDPE.

Thunderhill is a beautiful and challenging race track, making it a great place to learn the art of high-performance driving from the dedicated team of experienced GGC instructors. Some of our instructors have backgrounds in racing and many have started in our program as a student like you and advanced through to coaching.  BMW CCA instructors are qualified via an intensive two-day instructor training program to ensure your safety and a consistent, high quality learning experience.  

Our events are driving schools, not open track days; every student is assigned an instructor for the duration of the event.  Our focus is on safety and learning. The price for this 2 day event is $650 for BMW CCA members ($698 for non-member and 1 year membership is included).

A special opportunity is now available for a select group of enthusiasts who want to take the HPDE experience to the next level. The Advanced Data Coaching (ADC) option ($295 extra) will be part of this HPDE. This class will only be made available to advanced run group drivers. The ADC program is designed to take some of the guesswork out of assessing driving performance. A data acquisition system and video camera will be mounted to your car to capture your driving. After each session, you will meet with your driving coach to review your performance on track. After review of your data, your coach will show you opportunities for improvement, and will help you set goals for the next session. This allows you to focus on techniques that will have the most impact on your driving.  Meetings are held outside the normal classroom so more focused conversations can take place. Registration for the ADC program does not guarantee admission. Please ensure all relevant driving experience is noted in your registration.

Our HPDE and Advanced Coaching programs receive rave reviews from driving enthusiasts every year.  You'll go home with new skills and a heightened awareness that you can apply to your daily driving as well as some great memories of doing laps at this fantastic racetrack.
