Experience a Spectacular Fall Foliage Driving Event at Club Motorsports 

Friday and Saturday October 6-7, 2017 with the White Mountain Chapter (note the date change)

(optional preview for Instructors and Advanced Solo Students Monday, September 25)

We are privileged to be invited to this private, world-class, high performance driving facility in Tamworth, New Hampshire!!  Laid out on hundreds of rolling acres with breathtaking views of the White Mountains, the 15 turn, 2.5 mile Club Motorsports road course includes elevation changes not experienced elsewhere.  Over 40 feet wide with a mix of long straights and tight and sweeping turns, this track was clearly designed to provide a thrilling driving experience while keeping safety the top priority.

Top commentators have tagged Club Motorsports  "Easily the best track in America."

These High Performance Driving Schools are suitable for all skills levels from Novice to Expert.   We welcome all makes of cars  -- you don't have to drive a BMW to enjoy our events.  This school is an excellent way for you to improve your driving skills and have fun too!  

Student registrations are being limited to provide more track time for everyone and balance instructor work loads. To this end, the event will be open for regular registration pricing for a very short time only.

The school combines classroom and on-track instruction in a closely supervised and controlled environment.  Students are divided into "run groups" according to their prior experience and evaluations from previous schools.  In between the track sessions, students get classroom instruction in a lively environment appropriate for their skill level.  There may also be opportunities to gain experience by riding as passengers with their instructors.

The event runs rain or shine.

Registration Fees

For Students, the registration fee for the October 6-7, Friday and Saturday event is $600 for both days, or $350 for either single day. Advanced solo run group students may also attend our preview day on Monday, September 25 for an additional fee.  A late fee of $100 is charged for all student registrations on or after August 8th.

For Instructors, the registration fee for the October 6-7 dates is $50 per day. Instructors are encouraged to attend both Friday and Saturday.  Instructors may also  attend the September 25 event with advanced solo students for $200.   A late fee of $50 is charged for all instructor registrations on or after August 8th.

Please note there is now a "September 25 only" option.  The primary purpose of the Monday September 25 event is help staff and instructors prepare for the main event on October 6-6.  However we are also opening the Monday September 25 option to instructors and advanced solo students who cannot otherwise attend.  "Advanced solo" students participating in the September 25 event should be Group 1 (White Mountain) or Group A or ISG (Boston Chapter) students.  Other experienced students may be admitted at the discretion of the Chief Instructor.

Regular registration ends August 7th.  LATE registration and late fees begin August 8th.  Registration closes September 15th.  


What is a High Performance Driving School?

The purpose of a driving school is quite simple: to improve your driving skills.  We conduct the school on a racetrack under the close supervision of experienced and trained instructors. You will learn how to handle and control your vehicle at speeds not normally attained on public roads. This will help to prepare you for emergencies in normal driving. It will also allow you to explore your capabilities as a driver and those of your vehicle in a controlled environment. At no time will you be pushed or encouraged to go any faster than is comfortable. All participants will be organized into run groups in accordance with experience, skill, and type of vehicle.

What you learn on the track depends on your driving skill. Beginners are taught driving style (smoothness, consistency, the ability to read the track), more experienced participants continue to work on consistency, while developing new skills such as trail braking, and threshold braking. Every time you are on the track, you will have an experienced instructor in the passenger seat.

For the most experienced drivers, you can be “signed off” and drive solo when you have proven to your instructor and the Chief Instructor that you understand the basics of high speed driving, you can consistently drive the correct line, and you show proper etiquette on track. Maturity, good judgment, skill and significant experience will lead to being signed off for solo driving. Even if you are a solo student, you are still highly encouraged to learn new skills from your instructor. In fact, National BMW Club rules require an instructor be in-car for at least part of the event for all students.

Classroom

Your day is divided between driving on the track, classroom sessions, or free time. Yes, this is a school, and there is mandatory classroom time. All participants are required to attend classroom sessions throughout the day to learn vehicle dynamics and driving techniques. Failure to attend will result in loss of driving privileges.

In the classroom, you learn high speed driving theory. You learn everything from 'why low-profile tires are better', to what is the difference between an early and late apex. Car physics, such as what is really happening when I brake or why my car understeers or oversteers is also discussed. Each classroom normally has a question and answer session.

What is a Driving School NOT?

Though you are on a racetrack, with 20-30 other drivers of similar driving skills, it is not a race. Passing in corners is not allowed, and you are not expected to shift at redline, or go screaming through each corner with the tires squealing. Safety of the event is of the utmost importance. Driver conduct will be diligently monitored throughout the day by the staff, instructors, and corner workers. Infractions of the rules will not be tolerated, and will likely result in dismissal from the school.

First Time Students

All drivers with no previous Driving School experience are strongly advised to attend an Advanced Driving Skills School run by the Boston or White Mountain Chapters as the schedule allows. ADSS school dates are listed in the calendar on the White Mountain or the Boston Chapter websites.  These are all held in the rear parking lot at NHMS. Please note that the ADSS is designed to help you better understand your vehicle before coming to the track. There is an additional charge for attending the ADSS.
