Pre-Event Technical and Safety Inspection. In the Boston Area once again for 2019 a number of our supporting Independent BMW Service Shops have offered to provide pre-track inspection services free of charge to our club members as a means to make attending a driving school easier and safer. You can, of course, still go to your shop of choice for a pre-event tech inspection and or inspect your own vehicle if you are qualified. The following is a list of our supporting inspection shops in alphabetical order.



  • Snell 2010 or newer helmet required (M or SA, 2010 or 2015) - Snell 2005 helmets are no longer permitted.
  • Each driver must bring their own helmet

Failure to present a completed form or failure to pass our spot check will disqualify you from participation in the event and your entry fee will be forfeited.
  • This is not a racing school but rather a safe, high speed driving school, conducted on a race track under close supervision by experienced instructors. You will learn how to handle and control your vehicle at speeds not normally attained on public roads. This will help to prepare you for emergencies that may occur in normal driving situations. It will also allow you to explore your capabilities as a driver and those of your vehicle.
  • At no time will you be pushed or encouraged to go any faster than is comfortable for you. All participants will be organized into run groups in accordance with experience, skill, and type of vehicle. Participants not "signed off" will be required to drive with an instructor on board at all times.
  • Under no circumstances will timed laps be permitted!  If you are seen with a stop watch at any time, you will be asked to leave and forfeit your ability to participate in this or future White Mountain Chapter events.
