About this event
THIS IS THE RE-SCHEDULED ITS FOR 2021. PARTICIPATION IS BY INVITATION ONLY.
Though a collaboration between Jeff and Sharon Caldwell and the DelVal BMW CCA chapter, we will be holding our annual Mid-Atlantic regional Instructor Training School on August 13-15 on Lightning Raceway at NJMP. The Instructor Training School is for advanced students who have shown a high level of driving skill, an understanding of driving dynamics and a desire to teach. The program is a rigorous two days of on-track and classroom instruction and role-playing. If you have been invited, you can register online here. Please be sure to use the ITS Candidate registration radio button so you are properly enrolled. Your acceptance will be subject to approval by the ITS Coordinator and Chief Instructor. If you believe that you are a candidate for the ITS and have not been invited, please e-mail the ITS Coordinator. ITS candidates should plan to bring the car they usually use for driver schools as a portion of the evaluation process requires candidates to drive their vehicle.
On Friday during Jeffapalooza, ITS participants will have 4 on-track sessions and all remaining time in the classroom. ITS run groups will have the track alone. On Saturday during DelVal's DE/CR event, ITS participants will be blended into regular student run groups for additional training and evaluation combined with additional classroom time. All candidates should plan to remain for Sunday. Those candidates who graduate from ITS will be given students to instruct on Sunday and we will work with the remaining candidates to get them "finished up".
A Saturday evening banquet is listed on the Registration page but, at this time, we are uncertain that it will be held. We will notify registrants once plans become defined.
ITS Candidate: $495. Your card will not be charged until just before the event in case Covid restrictions change.
Participants must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid driver’s license. Per requirements of BMW CCA national office, all STUDENT participants must be members of BMW CCA. Please include your BMW CCA membership number in your Profile. If you are not yet a BMW CCA member, we have a promotion to make it easy to join.
NJ/DV BMW CCA do not allow convertibles of any kind nor SAV/SUVs at our on-track events. Spec Miatas (and similar) are acceptable if they have a full roll-cage, permanently attached factory hard-top and current SCCA log book. They must also comply with all vehicle Technical Inspection requirements.
Per NJ State Police regulations, you must have a Snell2015 or newer full-face helmet.
Note that all after-market tinting must be approved in advance by the Chief of Tech. Failure to obtain pre-approval may result in your car failing Tech Inspection and loss of your registration fee.
Any damage caused to the paddock or track, including safety barriers, is the responsibility of the participant. Note that the track may collect payment on-site.
Cancellations will be accepted until two weeks prior to the start date of an event. Any cancellation received on or prior to the respective cancellation date will be charged a $25.00 handling fee. Any cancellation request following the cancellation date is subject to forfeiture of the entire entry fee if the Registrar is unable to fill your slot. If your slot is filled, only the $25 handling fee will apply. If you are a “no show” at the event, no refund will be given. All cancellations must be communicated in writing via e-mail or letter through the Registrar.
