BMWCCA Puget Sound Region has provided High Performance Driving events at Pacific Raceway and other tracks for more than 40 years. We have a very good safety record and an experienced group of volunteer Instructors and staff.
- Safety - First and foremost.
- Educational – Emphasis on improving skills.
- Welcoming - Friendly and casual.
- Inclusive - Open to all members with all skills and all types of cars.
Attendees are assigned to one of three run groups by the Chief Driving Instructor, based on the skills and abilities of the driver, vehicle, and other participating drivers. Groups run from Novice, where all drivers are instructed to Advanced/Instructors where all drivers are Solo. Others may be instructed or solo depending on driver skill. Passing rules run from limited to open depending on run group. Drivers are expected to advance over time with improving skills and abilities.
Following time on track, run groups will meet in educational breakout sessions for discussion about the track, conditions, traffic management, driving theory, and tips for improvement.
