No single day option. If you are wondering which group you would run in for the single day please contact Bill Wade. Spaces are limited!
We are offering our popular 'A-Solo" run group again. These selected advanced students will have the option of not having an Instructor in the car or attend any classroom. To qualify, the Event's Chief Instructor will review the students driving resume as noted on MotorsportReg. (Completeness of past driving history listed on your MSR account is essential). The review of the student's past High Performance Driving Schools events featuring in-car instruction will be considered. Review of the history over the last three-years and the numbers of days in the highest level groups, and how many of those signed off is significant. The Chapter has full discretion on acceptance of the candidate's credentials.
A "SuperSize" option will be available is scheduled each day. It is available for the qualified A-solo students, by invitation, for an additional cost of $150 for students. This will allow the A-solo students to double their track time by driving in the Instructor sessions in addition to their regularly schedule sessions. Students interested in being considered for attending should check the appropriate box on the application form. We will contact you after evaluating your previous experience to inform you if you have been accepted. Completeness of past driving history listed on your MSR account is essential.

We will not charge instructors. If you have not instructed with us before you will not be able to sign up as an Instructor until approved. Please contact Chief Instructor Bill Wade (email@example.com) w/ your driving/instructing resume for evaluation.
We will also be hosting a BMW CCA Instructor Training School. All Marques drivers are welcome.

All New Instructor Candidates shall have at least 15 High Performance Driving Schools featuring in-car instruction (30 instructed track days) over a MINIMUM three-year period in order to qualify for a Instructor Training School (ITS). Preference is given to BMW CCA chapter schools; the Chief Instructor (CI) may discount any school that they deems unsuitable for the purpose of preparing a student to instruct. Track time without in-car instruction is given a low priority.
