It’s no secret that we love BMWs, especially when it comes to enhancing their performance. Before you can truly appreciate a BMW on track, you have to learn to fully exploit driver performance. That’s where HPDE addiction begins, and, for many BMW drivers, that often evolves into club racing. And we love being involved through every step of the process to the sport and community that has given us so much enjoyment over the past couple of decades!
The BMW CCA Club Racing Schools are the next step for an experienced driver to learn advanced skills, even if racing isn’t immediately (or at all) on your horizon. BimmerWorld became the title sponsor of this program near it’s inception in 2008 – having learned to race in the years before this existed, and largely through the school of hard knocks, BimmerWorld owner James Clay found that the school gave drivers a tremendous amount of knowledge and provided a much higher level of safety for our friends and customers – both to the participants and those that they would grow to race against as a well-trained rookie. With 27 students at the VIR event, many of whom went on to race that very same weekend, the school was a great success.
Nothing beats some good grub and tasty beverages with friends while enjoying the Thursday night race school party at VIR.
VIR Club Racing School graduate Bill Schachat, proving to his friends that he not only took the school, he also went on to race that same weekend along along with 8 other graduates.
It was a great weekend for all involved, and we were very happy by the number of students who participated, let alone the great number who turned around and made this their first club racing weekend with BMW CCA.
