PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT BEFORE YOU REGISTER. It contains valuable information about the school, registration, and the rules of the day. Forms mentioned in this text are immediately available via the links; however, all of them are available as a group when you go to the forms page.

  • Students must be 18 years of age or older with a valid driver's license - no exceptions.
  • Convertibles, cars with removable hardtops, trucks, pickups, vans and most SUVs are not permitted at the Driving School. Permitted SUVs are the BMW X6, X5, X4, X3 and X1, and Porsche Cayenne and Macan. Lotus, Caterham, and Corvette cars with a rollbar or fixed structure behind the driver’s and passenger’s head are also permitted (any removable roof panels must be in place while on track). Inquire about any vehicles in question ahead of the school.

This is Not a Racing School

Our Driving School mission is to improve your driving skills while having fun. Our goal is to teach you safe driving skills and habits in a controlled situation. We hope what you learn will benefit you in your normal day-to-day driving, especially when confronted with emergency situations. We will emphasize the relationship of the driver and vehicle, how to make them function in unison, and give you the opportunity to learn your limitations and expand your capabilities.

Driving School Requirements

 

To maximize your track time and insure you get adequate instruction, the event is run on a tight schedule. Adherence to the schedule requires your cooperation and will allow us to get through the preliminaries quickly. You must arrive at the track no later than 6:30AM. You must stop at the gate to sign the waivers and check-in. All individuals entering the track property must sign the Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement. You must read it carefully and understand what you are signing. We also recommend that you show and discuss the waiver with your spouse. Minors are allowed in the facility, but a parent or guardian must sign a Minor's Waiver Form on their behalf at the track, or it may be signed in advance if notarized.

After check-in, proceed immediately to the paddock area and unload everything from your car, glove compartment, storage bins and trunk. Please remove floor mats, loose change, radar detectors and everything that is not firmly attached. A properly secured spare tire may remain in the car if you choose.

Be sure to arrive with a full tank of fuel.  Bring plenty of water (1 gallon per person) or other hydrating drinks. Water is best! Also bring a folding chair, hat, sunscreen, warm clothes and protection from the wind and weather.

Be ready to attend the mandatory Driver's Meeting at 7:45AM. This is the most important meeting of the day!

 

Mandatory Vehicle Inspection

A technical inspection is required of all cars, and must be completed prior to the school. This is to check the condition of your vehicle, especially the parts that will be critical for an event like this. Tech inspection forms must be downloaded from the forms page. Most safety equipment will be checked: tires, brakes, brake fluid, battery hold-downs, seat belts and more. If there is any doubt about the condition of your equipment, have it replaced. New tires are not required or necessarily recommended. The inspection can be completed by your mechanic (expect a charge) or there will be FREE technical inspections. Be sure to bring your helmet to the inspection, as it will also be checked. DO NOT PUT THIS OFF! Be sure to give yourself time in case something is found that must be fixed.

Helmets and Safety

Note: Snell 2010 and 2015 helmets only! Snell 2005 is no longer valid. Safety is our first priority. Students and instructors are required to wear a Snell 2010 (or newer) certified helmet while on the track. Both Snell motorcycle (M) and auto racing (SA) certifications are acceptable. Bring a helmet even if you have to borrow one. A limited number of helmets can be rented for $15 at the school, but we cannot guarantee their availability. If you plan to buy a helmet, first find and read a guide on how to properly fit a helmet. Cars, drivers and instructors judged to be operating in an unsafe manner will be removed from the track and no refunds will be given. No glass beverage containers are permitted at any time. No alcoholic beverages are permitted on the premises while cars are on the track.

 Students are not allowed to take passengers on the track at any time -- absolutely no exceptions. Only registered students and instructors are allowed to drive on the track. During instructors' sessions, instructors may take passengers who have signed the waiver release, wear an approved helmet, and are at least 18 years of age. Helmets used in Autocross events or Driving Schools must be rated to Snell, SFI or FIA standards as detailed below.
Snell Rated Helmets. Either Snell SA (Special Applications, e.g. racing) or Snell M (motorcycle) or Snell K (karting) helmets may be used. 
Recommendation: That any older helmet used during the grace period be replaced as soon as possible with one meeting the latest standard. SFI or FIA Rated Helmets. Helmets that meet BMW CCA Club Racing eligibility rules at the time of the event are also allowed. (These presently include SFI 31.1 and FIA 8860, subject to change.)
General recommendation: Use of a full-face helmet with its face shield in place is strongly advised. The face shield of a full face helmet should either be worn closed or removed from the helmet. Any external visor above the eye-port should be removed.

 

Medical Information

The medical form has been replaced with an electronic version. You no longer need to take a paper version of the medical form to final check-in at the track. When you register on Motorsportreg for the school, you will then be required to fill out medical information. As before, the information is kept confidential. The medical information enables emergency workers to provide assistance in the event of an emergency. If there is information you would like the emergency workers to know, then record such information, and place it in a sealed envelope with your driving school assigned number and your name. This information could include current medications and drug allergies. Hand the sealed envelope in at final check-in. A chapter volunteer will hand all such envelopes to the medical workers in the ambulance. This envelope will be retained by the emergency workers in the ambulance for the duration of the driving school, and then destroyed immediately after the school.

 

Toehooks are required for your car:  

Make sure you have one on your car before you head to grid!

 

Cancellation Details

Cancellations must be done by calling the registrar . Cancellations received on or before May 7th will be charged $25.00 per driver per day. Our chapter policy is that there are no refunds after the cutoff date. If canceling after the cutoff date, students may present their case to the driving school committee. Only unforeseen, extraordinary, unavoidable circumstances will be considered. The committee, at their discretion, may issue partial credit to be applied at a driving school within the twelve month period subsequent to the cancellation.

Waitlist

If you are one of the first on the waitlist, please have your car ready and teched ready to go. Assume you might get in!

Payment Processing & Membership Renewal Coupons

Please note that the MotorsportReg.com system allows us to defer processing your credit card until registration closes. A reserve will be placed on your card, but the charge will not be made until registration closes. To redeem a membership renewal coupon for this event, please register as you normally would. Then send your coupon to Leslie Jenkins, driving school registrar before the close of event registration. Your account will be credited before your card is charged.
