Come join us at the Tarheel & Toe High Performance Driver School [HPDS]  for a wonderful opportunity to experience the Repaved and Widened Full Course at Virginia International Raceway [VIR]. Learn more about VIR at www.VIRclub.com. Learn more about Tarheel Chapter BMW CCA Driver Schools at www.tarheelbmwcca.org under TRACK.  Due to the paving project, all 3 of our schools are "In High Season" this year. The cost of renting VIR on these High Season weekends is significantly greater.  Last season we reduced the Student Fee by $19 with 2 schools (Feb and Nov) during the off season. This year the fee for students is raised to cover the added cost (High Season and normal annual VIR rate increase) to the chapter.

Must be BMW CCA members to participate per BMW CCA guidlines.  Registration opens to current Tarheel Chapter BMW CCA members on 7/28/14 at 8:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.  HPDS cost $435.00 Sat/Sun for BMW CCA members Only.  Not a member of BMW CCA? Join at www.BMWCCA.org and hit the JOIN button. August 7th registration opens to BMW CCA members from OTHER chapters.

Only Instructor Training School [ITS] students who have passed the Driver Skills Evaluation and students who have A+ experience with Tarheel Chapter HPDS may register for Friday.  Just as we have definitions for A-D run group experience, so have we added the Category A+/Solo.  Briefly stated, Friday is now open to "A+/Solo" students, defined as those who score 5's in attitude and 11 or higher in all driving skill categories on their most recent Student Evals AND have completed four (4) Tarheel Chapter schools (8 days) in the "A" group over the past 3 years.  Review your Log Book on Msreg.com. The cost to A+ students for Friday, Sat, Sun is $650.00.  At this time we can accommodate only six (6) A+/solo students.  Friday there will be a student meeting, brief classroom and Coaches will be available to you in car during at least one session and optionally throughout the day upon request. You will drive with the instructors on Friday giving potentially 7+ hours on track time.  A+/Solo may then be Solo Drivers with coached workshops on Saturday and Sunday.

Registration opens the same time as students and will not close until staffing is completed. Note we cannot confirm students until we have sufficient staff so please let us know early that you will be available to Instruct. Friday cost for instructors working Sat/Sun (and ITS candidates) is $150.00.   Not included are Instructors not available to instruct the weekend or A-B-C-D level students. Sat/Sun there is no charge for working instructors.  Note: there will be NO lunch tickets for anyone this season. Lunch is available in the Pagoda at your own expense.

Please read carefully.  We plan to have a dinner (supper if you are from around here) Saturday evening at the VIR Facility using the (Museum) Banquet Building.  Please plan to be part of this social evening.  Cost is $20.00 and includes the choice of BBQ Chicken  and a Pig Pickin' with all the trimmings to include non-alcoholic beverages and a dessert.  This is a great opportunity to meet each other and share the day's events.

We have switched to "Required but Deferred" payment processing to ensure no one is charged until they're confirmed. That said, a valid card must be provided at registration, but we will not charge until we confirm you to the event.  If your card is denied when we attempt to charge, you may languish on the waitlist.  Please plan accordingly.

Everyone registers in the North Paddock at VIR on FRIDAY.  Participants who attend Friday will register Friday AM around 8:30 AM.  EVERYONE else registers Friday late afternoon/evening in the Paddock of the North Course.  INSTRUCTORS working only Sat/Sun may check-in Saturday AM if you are not able to do so Friday evening.  Please,
everyone try to register Friday.  Saturday morning check-ins are very hectic and stressful for everyone.
