Come join us for our annual June Club Race/Driver School to benefit the Westlake School to be held on Thunderbolt Raceway at NJMP. In addition to the driver school and club race, we will have a banquet, honored guests and special giveaways. This is a perfect spectator event given the proximity of the track to the majority of our members, the excitement of Club Racing and the joy of the kids from the Westlake School who come as our guests. This event should not be missed!
Driver School: We anticipate a full school for this event based on past years attendance. Depending on the number of student and racer registrations, we will have two or three student run groups for this school. If we have two student groups, it is likely that one of the groups will be for Advanced students with the second group being Beginner/ Intermediate. The final determination of how to allocate students between groups will be made by mid-May based upon both registrations and payments received. To accommodate the maximum number of students possible, there may be a greater range of driving skills than usual in each group. If you send a payment and we cannot accommodate you, you will receive a full refund (i.e., a cancellation fee will not be assessed). As always, acceptance preference is based upon the date your payment is received by the registrar. REGISTER EARLY TO SECURE YOUR SLOT!
Please note that the BimmerWorld Club Racing School that is usually part of this event will instead be held during BMW CCA OktoberFest on Sep. 24-25.
Club Race: Racers, register early for this event. We anticipate we will fill the race run group as this event will serve as a practice race for the Oktoberfest races.
Note: we are also welcoming NASA-licensed racers for this event. NASA racers will run in the same race as BMW CCA Club Racers but will be categorized as a separate class. To participate in this event, NASA drivers must contact BMW CCA Club Racing to receive a complimentary BMW CCA Club Racing license.

NJ BMW CCA does not allow convertibles of any kind nor SAV/SUVs at our on-track events. Spec Miatas are acceptable if they have a full roll-cage, permanently attached hard-top and current SCCA log book. They must also comply with all vehicle Technical Inspection requirements. Note that all after-market tinting must be approved in advance by the Chief of Tech. Failure to obtain pre-approval may result in your car failing Tech Inspection and loss of your registration fee.
Any damage caused to the paddock or track, including safety barriers, is the responsibility of the participant. Note that the track may collect payment on-site. Cancellations will be accepted until two weeks prior to the start date of an event. Any cancellation received on or prior to the respective cancellation date will be charged a $25.00 handling fee. Any cancellation request following the cancellation date is subject to forfeiture of the entire entry fee if the Registrar is unable to fill your slot. If your slot is filled, only the $25 handling fee will apply. If you are a “no show” at the event, no refund will be given. All cancellations must be communicated in writing via e-mail or letter through the Registrar. If NJ BMW CCA must cancel an event for any reason, registrants will be provided a full refund; however, NJ BMW CCA will not be liable for any charges or costs registrants may incur other than the registration fee. Refunds will be issued following the event.
