Due to the excellent turnout and popularity of this event, we have decided to hold another school at Mosport this April 25-26, 2015. Please visit this website for further details and registration.
Would I want to attend?
If you're considering advancing to the ranks of BMW Club Racing or CASC Racing, or want to be exposed to new concepts and on-track experiences, then this event is for you. This school is open to all drivers experienced with high performance driving on the track. Instructors and signed off advanced students of the BMW Club high performance driver education program are welcome, as well as participants with equivalent experience from other recognized organizations. You will need to be a member of a chapter of Trillium BMW Club or any BMW Club in Canada or BMWCCA to participate.
Experienced racers from BMW Club Racing and other sanctioned race series are invited to help instruct. We need racers to participate in discussions regarding a variety of topics, take part in on-track exercises, and observe and comment on the actions of the students. When on track, you will be using your own car and not be in the student's car. You will also be able to make use of available instructor sessions to get additional time on the track.
What will you learn?
The weekend consists of an intensive program of in-class sessions and on-track exercises. There will be four classroom sessions and four track sessions each day. The classes cover such topics as the rules, race craft, mental preparation, practice and qualifying techniques, surviving the start, etc. On-track sessions consist of a variety of exercises, including two or three-abreast driving, leap-frog passing, practice starts, and simulated qualifying, culminating in a mock race in the last session on Sunday (optional). There will be no instructors in the student cars, though there will be instructors present on the track and in the classroom observing your behavior and skill and participating in the discussions in the class.
What should I bring?
Any car suitable for use in a BMW Club driving school may be used, all the way up to fully prepared race cars. Participants do not need race prepared cars, nor do cars need to be BMW's. Participants will have to complete technical inspections and personal waivers to access the CTMP grounds and must wear minimum Snell 2005 helmets to access the track (same requirements as for a BMW Club driving school).
What will it cost? The cost to students attending the two day school is $649 +HST. There is no charge to instructors for Saturday or Sunday. Both students and instructors are also invited to participate in an optional practice day on Friday April 24. Cost for all participants on Friday is $262 +HST or higher depending on how far in advance you register (taxes included). See “Schools” tab, then click on “Advanced Driving Schools”.
