    Can you tell me whether I can register a 17 year old (18 on Sept 18) for the following:
    Autocross
    Driving school

    The Windy city BMW club allows 16-18 year olds at autocross events so long as I am present and sign a waiver. I am hopeful that I can do this for the autocross and ideally drivers school at Octoberfest.

    I will strongly suggest the Car Control school for the teenager, if they haven't yet been through a Street Survival school. I rather doubt they'll waive the age requirement for the driver school. OTOH, if you're in the Windy City chapter, why not just sign up for the October OktoberFAST school that Badger Bimmers will host after his/her 18th birthday? Two full days instead of one! ;)

    Thanks for the responses. My son took the car control clinic last year with Windy City and also took their autocross training school last year. He subsequently autocrossed at least 6 times with Windy city or the Chicago Audi club. We were very excited at the prospect of his first drivers school at Octoberfest (so he could experience all that Octoberfest has to offer). We had assumed that Octoberfest would be held in October (after his September bday). :) It was disappointing to see that Octoberfest became Augustfest. Is their any waivers allowed for the 18 year old requirement for drivers school given the experience level? If not we'll look at Octoberfast or Putnam with Windy City.

    There are no waivers for under 18 drivers at the driver's school for Oktoberfest.
