Advanced HPDE, Time Trials, & Club Racing School at Watkins Glen

August 21, 2020 to August 23, 2020
Join us for GVC's second driving school of the year, open to Advanced drivers. Choose from open lapping, a Time-Trial on Friday, or a two day Club Racing School on Sat/Sun. Or, make it a 'big weekend' and do all three!!
Skill Levels: BMW CCA: Group S (Solo), Advanced, Upper Intermediate (SLIP L3 and up); PCA: Black and White run group drivers; Club Racers with valid competition licenses; Driving School instructors in good standing. NO PRO RACE TEAMS Format: Open Track 8:30 - 4:30 daily (limited instruction available); Available add-ons: Time Trial (Fri. only) and/or 2-day Club Racing School (Sat-Sun) Club Race e School: The Bimmerworld CRS is a challenging and fun track experience. Though the ultimate goal of the school is to recruit new racers to BMW Club Racing, you don’t have to drive a BMW, or have a race-prepared car, driving suit, or race harness to participate. Any vehicle that passes tech for our driving school is adequate for the CR School. Completion of the CRS does not automatically qualify you for a BMW CCA Club Racing license, but if you have the experience and meet the other requirements, you will be eligible for a rookie license, and the opportunity to join the ranks of BMW CCA Club Racing, which many consider to have the finest club racing level drivers in North America. Time Trials: BMW Club Racing Time Trials (TT) offers a driver a competitive step up from driving school event, instructing, and Auto-X, but is not wheel to wheel racing. Drivers can use the same car and tech preparation used during the driving school (HPDE). Extra safety equipment is always encouraged, but not required. BMW-TT is open to Solo (Group S or equivalent) and advanced – intermediate (GVC Group 2) students (with approval*) and all driving school instructors. Each driver will be screened before being accepted for TT. TT Participants get 4 separate sessions during open track Friday. Time Trial cars are gridded by lap times in the previous session and are assigned a specific grid position. It’s all about your single fastest lap in a session. Between TT sessions the track remains open for practice and lapping. This amounts to full day of track time. Fees: 1 day lapping: $375 2 days lapping: $725; add TT $75 3 days lapping: $950 Time Trials (Fri only): $450 Big Weekend TT & CRS (Fri-Sun): $1065 Garage (1/2 bay): $65 (2day) $80 (3day) Registration ends: August 17
