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

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

Do you want to get in one more event in 2020? Do you want to drive a track that is guaranteed to make you a better driver? Our Shenandoah Driver School is the answer! This event is becoming a favorite for those students who have taken the plunge to give the track a try. We will be running the traditional complement of three student run groups (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced). The Shenandoah Circuit is the newest track at Summit Point Raceway and is known for its interesting layout and technical challenges. The hallmark of the track is a dimensional replica of the famous carussel turn at the Nurburgring featuring 20 degree banking! Driving Shenandoah will make you a better driver on every other track you visit - almost every type of turn is on this track. Beyond great in-car and classroom instruction, we also try to have one of our instructors give a track walk at lunch. This gives students a different perspective on the track and yields additional driving tips that will improve your driving and fun.
This school is generally characterized by smaller run groups giving plenty of open track to all participants. Note also that this is the only school run by the NJ chapter that offers 2 days of skid pad training for all participants. If you truly want to improve your car control skills, skid pad training is a must.
Come on down for a great weekend and a truly fun track.
Note that open face helmets Snell2010 or newer will be accepted for this event.
$395 Registration Fee Till Aug 4, after Aug 4 till Sept 15 $425, after Sept 15 $450
