UPDATE: We now require all attendees and guests to be fully vaccinated for Covid 19 by the date of this event in order to attend.
Please note, Club Motorsports has a 92db at 50' sound limitation.
The WMC/Boston Chapters of BMW CCA are privileged to be invited to this private, world-class, high performance driving facility in Tamworth, New Hampshire!
This event is open to all skill levels and our intention is to run with in car instruction.
UPDATE: We now require all attendees and guests to be fully vaccinated for Covid 19 by the date of this event in order to attend. If you are or will be, fully vaccinated by the date of the event and can show proof of your vaccine at our on site registration (Vax card or photo of it) and you have no concern about a fully vaccinated instructor joining you in your car then you are all set. Note: We consider “fully vaccinated” to mean that you’ve had 1 or 2 vaccination shots as specified by the vaccination provider and you’ve been symptom free for 2 weeks after your last shot.
If you are not vaccinated and or can not be by the event date and are not comfortable riding with a vaccinated instructor then unfortunately, you will not be eligible to attend this event. We do hope that, over time, these restrictions will evolve to a point where we can remove the vaccine requirement but for now we apologize if this means that you won't be able to join us for this event.
We understand that for some of our attendees this will be disappointing but our team wishes to offer the best high performance driving training possible and a return to safe in-car instruction is the best way to achieve this.
Please be advised we are still monitoring the CDC and State guidelines and that means we may still require wearing masking and/or social distance. Details to be finalized as we near the event.
The Track - 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."
This High Performance Driving School is for ALL driver levels from Novice, Intermediate advanced and ISG. We DO 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!
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.
ABOUT: Independent Study Group. For advanced students who want to extend their skills in a safe, fast-paced coaching environment, the Boston/WMC Chapter of BMWCCA offers its Independent Study Group (ISG)
To promote continuous advanced skill development for experienced, independent drivers, ISG encourages students to identify the areas in which they want to improve, then allows them to create a personalized curriculum for achieving their goals.
At each event, every ISG student is assigned a coach who will work with them to achieve their goals. ISG drivers are often offered additional solo track sessions and the opportunity to drive in the instructors’ run group.
ISG Qualification - Soloed drivers with substantial experience and the skills to drive a consistent line, at an advanced run-group pace, on a variety of race tracks are eligible for consideration. After passing a thorough checkout drive with an ISG instructor, which emphasizes awareness, safety, consistency, and pace, the ISG candidate is admitted into the group.
ISG on Track, Classroom and Exercises - On the racetrack, ISG drivers spend working sessions with their assigned coach to execute their personalized plan. Classroom sessions comprise lively discussions of driving lines, corner approaches, speeds, data analysis, and a wide range of additional topics. Specialized exercises are offered to improve situational awareness, increase comfort levels in close-quarters driving, and practice passing.
ISG, Serious Car Control - For advanced car control methods, essential for the final reductions in lap times, ISG students are invited to one or two Advanced Car Control Clinics (AC3) each year at Lime Rock Park. An AC3 event begins with a discussion of tire dynamics and grip, balance, weight transfer, and an introduction to suspension concepts that alter the understeer/oversteer characteristics of the car. Then, on the handling course and skid pad, drivers learn the methods for inducing controlled oversteer with the throttle and brake, while learning to correct and prevent understeer.
This is a TWO DAY event and registration comprises both days.
The student registration fees (US $) for this event are as follows:
|Early Reg Discount||Student Driver||ISG||Non Member||Instructor|

Due to the limited number of student slots available for Boston/WMC Chapter driving events, it is common for us to receive more registrations than we can admit, hence a Wait-List will be created. Applications will be admitted from the Wait-List on a first come, first serve basis.
