2013 Performance Driving School Schedule

Hello all,

It is that time of the year again to start putting your schedules together to plan which events you are going to attend for the 2012 track season. Here is some help. We are running 3 Advanced Driving Schools (ADS) this year at the Grand Prix track at Mosport. These schools are for all levels of expertise at the track. We typically run 3 run groups. Beginner/Novice, Intermediate and advanced. This year we will have the added benefit of all of the improvements at Mosport, such as the new entrance which allows transporters and RV's to enter and exit the track at any time. The new larger paved lower paddock, and many larger easier to access view points throughout the track. This will be a great year. I'm looking forward to see all of you out whether you choose to participate, or spectate, come and say hi!

Beginner/Novice: If you've never been on track or have been but with no instruction, or have had an instructor just a handful of times you would be considered a beginner/novice Student.

Intermediate: If you've been to the track with formal instruction numerous times, and have a keen grasp of all of the typical rules, flags and protocol while at the track, and if you have fantastic car control, you would be considered an Intermediate Student.

Advanced: If you have completed at least 10 or more advanced driving schools, and demonstrated exemplary car control skills, have unwavering knowledge of flagging, heel and toeing, supreme car control skills, and a firm understanding and ability to explain all of the typical car control terms, such as lift throttle oversteer and such you would be considered an advanced student.

Dates:
April 26, 27, 28

May/June 31, 1, 2

October 4, 5, 6


Cost: Tentatively $499.00 H.S.T. incl.

Further information on SoBMW.ca

There is a few added benefits of our ADS's. Aside from learning advanced driving techniques and skills, because we are an accredited driving school you get a tax receipt which can be used as a write off next year when you do your taxes as the fee is considered a tuition. That is upwards of a $225.00 return next year! Big savings!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at john_venditti@hotmail.com or Scott Paterson at scott097@hotmail.com.

Thank-you and we'll see you all this year at the track!

Remember, take it to the track!

Just got the word that we will also be running our Race School at the event on April 28th and 29th as we did last year. This is open to anyone who as participated as an advanced "A" Student in one of our schools, or equivalent. Once completed successfully, you will receive your provisional license to allow you to race in BMWCCA Sanctioned Club races. Once you have successfully completed 3 Club races, you can apply for your full on racing license to go BMW Club racing worldwide! However, if you just want to step your skills up another level, this is the right place to do it. Last year not one of our 30 participants applied for a provisional license, they used the elevated training to further their skill. A few were avid Solo 1, and 2 racers. The others were avid lappers and instructors! When I have more details, I'll provide them in a new post!

A little off topic, but how much more expensive is track rental at Mosport with all the changes going on there? $100 increase in the school fee over last year is quite the jump.

There is no increase in the school fee from last year what so ever. The fee for the performance driving school is $499.00 taxes included, plus as usual we issue a tax receipt for your event fees.

The Race School which is entirely different is $599.00 taxes included. This is also the same fee as last year, which was the first race school ever held in Canada by the BMW Clubs.

Hopefully that clears things up.

To answer your other question, the price has gone up $800/day for a weekend day including Friday as a w/e. So for our 3 day events we're paying $2400.00 more. The club is soaking it up as a loss. It just means our break even point now is 5 more students than last year. We're really hoping for a banner year so we've decided to swallow it for now......
