GVC BMW CCA Mountain Top HPDE at the New York Safety Track


Tired of riding out the pandemic in the concrete jungle? Come join us in the beautiful Catskill Mountains for our first ever HPDE at the New York Safety Track! Due to limitations resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic we unfortunately can not have in-car instruction at this event. We will make available a limited number of instructed spots that will utilize lead-follow instruction methods honed at the national BMW CCA level. These slots will be open to all students. The remaining slots will be filled by open lapping sessions available to all Advanced/Solo HPDE drivers. All standard BMW safety protocols and passing rules will be in effect.

Student run group will alternate between four track sessions and four class room sessions per day, as well as a quick debrief with your instructor after each run. The track is very technical so you'll have plenty to keep your mind busy for two days. Lapping run groups will get 4 on track sessions per day, amounting to almost 2 hours of open lapping per day. 

Registration is limited to 15 students and 45 open lappers to prevent overcrowding. Early registration is highly encouraged!

To be confirmed for the Open Lapping group, drivers must satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

  • BMW CCA: Group S (or equivalent); Group 2 (advanced) and upper-level Group 3 (intermediate) drivers previously signed off to solo; SLIP rating L3 or higher.

  • PCA: white or black run group.

  • MSF-certified Level 1 or 2 instructors in good standing.

  • Professional or amateur (club) racers with valid competition licenses.

Please be sure your motorsportreg logbook is up to date.

To qualify for the Instructed session, drivers must satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

  • BMW CCA: Group 3 (intermediate) drivers not previously signed off to solo; SLIP rating L2 or higher.
  • Registration is now open to everyone!

If you are unsure whether you qualify for the lapping group, please contact  Bill O'Neill or Jay Sofianek (GVC Chief Instructors).

Guests are limited to two per driver. All guests must sign the GVC waiver immediately upon arrival.

Registration options and fees:

Two-day event:  $450

Since this is our first event at the NYST and everyone is going to take some time to get up to speed we don't feel it's fair to have first timers on track on Tuesday with people who have a full day of warm-up under their belts. Due to this we've decided to make all registrations for this event both Monday and Tuesday. Come enjoy the beautiful region and stay a while!

Additional Information:

Registration Restriction:

Due to very limited number of spots available registrations will only be available to GVC BMW CCA members until September 8th. We're sorry for this inconvenience, but there should be plenty of room if you get your registration in early. 

New York state Covid-19 requirements:
In compliance with requirements from New York State, masking and social distancing will be required at all times while at the racetrack. Participants will be required to provide their own masks. More detailed precautions will be sent as we get closer to the event.
In addition, be sure and stay current with NY Covid Quarantine requirements, as a 14 day quarantine will be required if traveling from states with high rates of Covid infection.
