Thunderbolt Solo Driver School & VIP K&N Tickets

Thunderbolt Raceway

About this event


This page is for SPECIAL DRIVER SCHOOL registration ONLY and VIP Ticket purchase.

Club Racer registration is here.


Following the success of last year, we again are offering a special driver school open to instructors and advanced, solo driver school students to be run in conjunction with the Club Race to be held as the support race series for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race to be held on Thunderbolt Raceway at NJMP on Sep. 16-17.  There will be no in-car instruction for this event - instructors and advanced students will share the track.

This will be an unstructured driver school with 6 hours of track time on Sunday Sep. 17. Because the school is being held after the K&N race this year, no race ticket is included in your registration fee. We will offer a separate option of purchasing a VIP spectator ticket (see below) for the races. Note that there will be Club Races on both Saturday and Sunday; NASCAR K&N will run Saturday only.

For Club Racing this is a tremendous opportunity: two days of racing at a professional race series event. This is the chance to showcase Club Racing to an audience that may not be familiar with what we do, sports car racing that has cars in different classes on the track. For other fans, this is a chance to see where current racers such as Will Turner, James Clay, Jeff Segal and our own Jerry Kaufman started. For our participants, we get to see the up and coming NASCAR racers of the future, and maybe teach them a thing or two about road course racing. And, you can tell yourselves that spectators are actually paying to come see you drive!

VIP Ticket for NASCAR K&N race: We are offering a discounted price VIP ticket for all BMW CCA members for the Saturday K&N race activities. The VIP package includes special access to the Officer's Club, a BBQ buffet, special spectator area, special car corral parking and swag. Come on down on Saturday (whether or not you are driving Sunday) and see our BMW Club Racers and the stars of tomorrow for NASCAR.


REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS LIMITED TO 50 CARS. YOU MUST REGISTER AND PAY IN ADVANCE TO PARTICIPATE. ADVANCED STUDENTS ARE ACCEPTED ONLY AFTER APPROVAL BY THE EVENT CHAIR.  All participants will be charged the same registration fee. Cancellations will be accepted until 7 days before the event.

Other details of registration times, entry times, paddock parking, etc. will be provided as we get close to the event.

Don't miss out on this event. Fantastic track time combined with both Club Racing and NASCAR racing for a unique experience.
