The Deutscher Club of Clark NJ has invited the NJ BMW CCA to one of their annual BMW Biergarten Event.  As usual, there will be plenty of good German food and beverages!

On Sunday, July 12th, the NJ Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America will host a family-friendly ~60-mile scenic drive over the back-roads of Somerset County to benefit NORWESCAP, an organization which serves low-income families in northwest New Jersey.  The scenic drive will occur rain or shine and will start at the Hills Village Shopping Center @ 550 Hills Dr in Bedminster (https://www.google.com/maps/dir//500+Hills+Dr,+Bedminster,+NJ+07921) at 10:30am.  There will be time to grab coffee or food at the starting point and there will be two stops along the drive (intended to be lunch at Long Valley Pub & Restaurant in Long Valley; Jockey Hollow National Historical Park in Morristown).  We'll drive in a caravan; the route will be also available via Google Maps @ http://tinyurl.com/BMWCCAScenicDrive712.

We are collecting a donation of $20 per vehicle - cash or check will be collected on the day of the event - which will be donated to NORWESCAP.We are setting a limit of 40 cars for this event.  Please register in advance for this event on MotorsportsReg @ https://njbmwcca.motorsportreg.com/events/july-12-fun-drive-nj-public-roads-bmw-cca-new-jersey-897025 so that we can plan appropriately for our travel stops.   Face masks are required at all times (except while in your car) and social distancing behavior should be observed.  We will be eating lunch outside on the patio or in the parking lot at Long Valley Pub.  It is recommended that you bring sunscreen, folding chair(s) and pop-up canopy (for outdoor lunch), and a two-way FRS radio (if you want to talk to other cars).

Hello Racers and Driver School participants.  Good news, the event is on!  The event is open to participants and crew only - no spectators.

Racers
We are expecting a big field of racers. We may need to limit the field to 50 participants so be sure to register early to secure your slot.   This event is a designated a North America Challenge Race.  This means there will be 4 points races (2 each day), 3 of which will be at 150% points and one at the regular points rate.  There will be some extra practice as this is the first club race for the North Atlantic region.

Students and Instructors
Unfortunately social distancing still does not allow us to do in-car instruction so this school will be a new format.  There will only be 2 run groups.  The first is for  A+Advanced/Solo students and Instructors.  Students and Instructors will pay to attend and run under student rules. Instructors will not have students and can only give passenger rides to a family member.  This group will be limited to 50 participants and we expect to give you more track time than our usual schools.   The second student group will be for newly promoted intermediates and beginners.  Beginners must have previous track experience.  It will be a lead-follow format with a limit of 16 students. In this format, an instructor is assigned to 2 students and they drive together on the track learning the proper line, braking and turn-in points and doing exercises that are often limited in other schools.  Acceptance into either group is at the discretion of the Chief Instructor so if you have questions about your eligibility, contact our Chief Instructor billvanocker@njbmwcca.org   If you have already registered let us know if you still wish to attend.  Again Instructors will pay to attend and will not have students.   More details to come - we look forward to seeing you at the track!   Jamie Kavalieros NJBMWCCA Driver School Chairman Register on MotorsportReg

October 3rd - 4th @ Shenandoah. Register on MotorsportReg 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. Register on MotorsportReg
