Registration Requirements:
Last day to register online: Wednesday, Mar 30, 2012. On track participants (students) will be limited to the first 45 registrants (may be increased later, but don't count on it). Register early to insure your spot. If you are interested in and experienced with instructing please contact Jeff Conner

School requirements:
To participate on track, your car must be registered, your car must have a tech inspection, you must be a licensed driver, 18 years of age or older and you must be a BMW CCA member to be eligible to participate.

Cost: $205 . Lunch and water are included in the cost.

Helmets: The current Snell requirements are SA/K2005, SA/K2010, M2005, M2010 or newer. Other allowable options include FIA and SFI rated helmets that are currently approved by BMW CCA club racing standards.

Convertibles: Convertibles are defined by BMW CCA as cars with retractable tops, whether soft-top or folding hardtop. These are the rules that have been set in place by the Tejas Chapter in accordance with the BMW CCA national standards. Every open topped car must be equipped with roll over protection. Additionally, the car must be equipped with a 5 or 6 point harnesses and arm restraints for driver and passenger. This means you need to install a 5 or 6 point harness and arm restraints for you and the instructor. Finally, the roll bar must clear the occupants' helmets by 2" in a straight line from the top of the roll bar to the top of the windshield. This will be measured before going out on track.

Tech Inspection: The required tech form will be provided in the registration packet that is mailed to you after you register. This must be completed prior to the event. Black Forest Werkshop will do this inspection for $26 for those participating on track for this event.

Spectators and Helpers:
You do not have to participate on the track to attend this event. Spectators are welcome and we also need people to assist with running of the event. If you want to attend as a spectator or assist, please fill out the RSVP form below. Passengers are not permitted in student cars, but may be allowed in Instructor cars during the Instructor Group runs at the discretion of the Instructor. Legal helmet is required.

We have two other ways for you to participate in the on-track experience:

If you are attending the event, but are not able to participate due to rules, you can still enjoy the on-track experience in one of two ways for only $25.

  • We will be offering parade laps during the lunch break, where any car can drive at lower speed around the track. No helmets are required. Convertibles are welcome and you will be following the lead of one of the Tejas Chapter event staff. Payment will be taken on the day of the event - cash or check only. This is the format that we did the last time we were at Harris Hill Road.
  • If you're truly seeking a thrill, you can take a ride in an instructor's car 'at speed' for a session, where you will experience the true performance of a well-driven vehicle. Helmets will be required, but H2R has limited helmets that they can loan. Due to the limited availability of instructor ride-alongs, sign ups will be taken at the track on a first come, first served basis. Payment will be taken on the day of the event - cash or check only.

People will sign up for the two add-ons separately. We hope this will allow some more people the ability to share in the on-track experience.

For all participants - everyone that attends the event must sign the insurance waiver. There is a separate waiver for minors which must be signed by both parents.
