"Longest Day" Driving School

Raceway Park of the Midlands

About this event

Join for this year's exciting "Longest Day" driving school.  We're joining forces with two of our neighboring BMW car club chapters - the Great Plains folks to our west, and the Kansas City Chapter to our south!

We're expecting a huge turnout for all the usual "Longest Day" fun and entertainment.  This is your chance to attend one of the best driving schools available in the country. We strive for and have developed a very effective program to teach novice and experienced drivers the finer points of car control, all at a great facility. We have gathered the best enthusiast instructors from around the Midwest to help you have the time of your life!

So, whether you are an experienced driver or just want to significantly improve your basic on-road driving skills, whether you have a fully track-modified BMW M3, another brand of sports car, or a normal everyday economy car, we welcome all driving enthusiasts.  The "Longest Day" Driving School is the place to be this June. Open to all licensed drivers 18 years of age or older of all skill levels, and we love novice students.
