If you're considering advancing to the ranks of BMW CCA Club Racing, or interested in accelerating your driving experience, the BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School with HOD at Watkins Glen International is the event is for you. The school is open to BMW CCA HPDE advanced students and instructors, as well as participants with equivalent driving experience from other recognized car clubs and organizations.

The BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School is hosted by Hooked on Driving, (HOD) at Watkins Glen International (WGI), August 11-12, 2021.  This is 2 days on the 3.4 mile Long Course at Watkins Glen which features 11 distinctive turns including the dramatic uphill Esses, the inner loop, the carousel and the famous "boot" .

Successful completion of the school will allow you to apply for a provisional (rookie) BMW CCA Club Race license and may qualify you for a NASA, SCCA, AER, Porsche, CASC-OR (Canada), or other race licenses.

The BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School consists of eight classroom sessions and eight track sessions. The classroom curriculum covers the fundamentals of closed circuit, door-to-door performance driving, competitive passing techniques, driver/race car preparation, and knowledge of BMW CCA Club racing rules.  On the track, you’ll experience various passing exercises, driving three-wide at speed, green-flag practice starts, and a full simulated race exercise; all under the watchful eye of the BimmerWorld and BMW CCA Club Racing On-track Coaches. The learning is accelerated, the driving is fast, and the experience is unforgettable!

Any car suitable for use in a BMW CCA HPDE event can be used. Participants do not need a race prepared car, and all manufactures/models of cars are welcome. It is recommended that you utilize all the safety equipment that you and your car have at all times. Note that helmets Snell SA2010 are acceptable through 2021. 

Initial registration will close on June 25nd, 2021, at which point at least 20 students must be registered in order to proceed with holding the event.  If so, registration will be extended for additional students, closing finally on Aug 9th.  If not, the event may be cancelled at that time with a refund.

Registrants will receive a full refund by cancelling before June 25, 2021 at 11:59pm.

This event is a few days following this year's NASCAR race at Watkins Glen, Aug 4-8th. Plan on attending the NASCAR race, and then a few days of vacation before the club race school.  Watkins Glen International has agreed to provide free car trailer parking in a secure lot during the NASCAR race until our event on the 11th.
