Monday, Jun 7 — Tuesday, Jun 8, 2021 Please come join us for our traditional Driver School event at our annual June Club Race/Driver School to benefit the Westlake School to be held at our home track at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ. We will have our usual banquet, auction fundraiser and special giveaways. The event will be held on Thunderbolt Raceway, which is a 14 turn, 2.25 mile road course designed by the owners of VIR with help from the legendary Carroll Shelby. Since 2008 a number of professional racing series have held events at Thunderbolt Raceway.  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. Take a personal day and come out to the track! Driver School: We anticipate a full school for this event based on our success of past years.  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 PLACE IN THE SCHOOL! We will have a Friday evening banquet with door prizes and special aution items to benefit Westlake School in keeping with our tradition of a track-side dinner at summer schools. BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School: Please note that we will NOT hold a club racing school at this event this year.  Please look for announcements and registration instructions in the Roundel and from the NJ chapter Bulletin, website and chapter email blasts.   $525 Registration Fee for the Driver School If registered and paid by April 30, $565 if registerd after till May 24, after May 24 $585
Saturday, Jul 17 — Sunday, Jul 18, 2021 Geoff Atkinson Memorial Driver School and Club Race: Please come join us for the Fifth Annual Geoff Atkinson Memorial Driver School and Club Race. We are planning a special celebration of our friend Geoff Atkinson - please come out and make this an event to remember. Our annual combined Driver School and Club race at Summit Point Raceway has become the NJ Chapter’s second tradition (behind our June race/school). Summit Point Raceway is in the rolling hills of the northeast corner of West Virginia near Harper’s Ferry. While West Virginia sounds like a long drive, for many NJ members it is, in fact, not any further driving time than to Palmer or Watkins Glen. The School and the Club Race divide track time between student run groups in the School and Race run groups. So, when you’re not on the track or in the classroom, you can take time to watch the racing.  Our Saturday night barbeque at the track features great food and the chance to relax, compare what you learned on the track and swap stories. Now confirmed: We will have 3 student groups for this school! Come on out for plenty of open track and small run groups! Please note also that we will allow open face helmets (Snell2010 or newer) for this event. $500 Registration Fee if registered and paid by May 31, after May 31 $525 till June 30, after June 30 $550
Details coming soon.

Shoutout to Convenience Collision

In addition to THE quarantine, I had my own mini-quarantine - being without my E30. A fender-bender last summer resulted in tons of anxiety, and fights with insurance. Eventually I found Convenience Collision through these very forums, and frustrations vanished. And now my E30 is finally back!
A few "while you're in there" additions later, this collision job turned into an exterior restoration including eliminating the one existing rust spot, and a glass-out paint job in the original Schwartz.
Anyways, just giving a shoutout and a recommendation to Matthew and all the CCI folks for their spectacular work.

About Us

The New Jersey Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America was established in 1970 and today has of over 3,000 members in New Jersey and the surrounding area. Our purpose is to provide services and organize events that benefit and interest our members. Our goal is to help you get the most enjoyment and satisfaction from BMW ownership, and to create a community where members can share their enthusiasm for these terrific cars.

The Chapter holds a monthly meeting for members that often consist of technical presentations and demonstrations. Our social events are well know as fun, family affairs and offer a great opportunity for members and their families to meet and mingle.

Since we are a car club, we place a lot of emphasis on the safe, proper operation of the automobile. We offer several “behind-the-wheel” activities in a learning environment that are designed to improve your driving skills. These consist of our Street Survival program for teens, Autocross events and our highly regarded Driver School program.

Since this is a BMW car club, we also organize competitive events that explore the limits of these awesome cars. We hold regular timed Autocross events and sponsor several Club Races throughout the season.

If you, like most car nuts, can’t resist modifying, improving and maintaining your prized BMW’s, the club has a terrific collection of resources for you. The scope and depth of knowledge among our membership almost guarantees that you’ll find an expert who will gladly offer advice on any detail, and the club maintains a technical library and toolbox for your use.

This club exists for you, the membership, and is run by active members. What we do as a club is determined by you so, if you would like to see other activities, or additional services offered, please bring these suggestions forward.

So, join the club, come to a meeting, and meet your fellow members. We are sure that you will make new friends who share your interests – and passion – for these great cars!
