Imagine knowing what to do when your car begins to slide, or being in control during that panic stop. Even if you think you know what you are doing, come out and explore the limits of you and your car in a controlled setting. Car control skills are learned techniques that are fundamental to performance driving, and can enhance your ability to be a safer driver in normal everyday situations.

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 not required for the clinic. If you wish to wear a helmet, it must meet the club’s helmet standards and must be inspected at check-in.

The April 6, 2013 Car Control Clinic will be held at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, CA (Directions to Candlestick Park). Check-in for registered students opens at 8:00am. The event concludes at 5:30pm. The cost is $130 for BMW Club members and $178 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.
