Trillium Club RACE SCHOOL is here!!!

Trillium is pleased to announce 2015 details of our superbly popular Race School!

Place: CTMP Grand Prix track
Dates: April 25 and 26 (2 day program) NOTE: as usual - the Race School will take place at the same time as our regular Advanced Driving School - but as a separate event.

See below for all other details – thank you!

If you're considering advancing to the ranks of BMW Club Racing or CASC Racing or want to be exposed to new concepts and on-track experiences, then this event is for you. This school is open to all drivers experienced with high performance driving on the track.

What Will I Learn?

The weekend consists of an intensive program of in-class sessions and on-track exercises. The classes cover such topics as the rules, race craft, mental preparation, practice and qualifying techniques, surviving the start, etc. On-track sessions consist of a variety of exercises, including two or three-abreast driving, leap-frog passing, practice starts, and simulated qualifying, culminating in a mock race in the last session on Sunday (optional).

What Should I Bring?

Any car suitable for use in a BMW Club driving school may be used, all the way up to fully prepared race cars. Participants will have to complete technical inspections and personal waivers to access the CTMP grounds and must wear minimum Snell 2005 helmets to access the track (same requirements as for a BMW Club driving school).

What Will It Cost?

The cost to students attending the two day school is $649 (+ HST). Both students and instructors are also invited to participate in an optional practice day on Friday April 24. To register for this Friday please log on to our website, and choose the April Friday link on the right-hand side of the homepage. Prices are listed and increase the closer it gets to the date.

More Information / How Do I Register?

• You will need to be a member of a chapter of Trillium BMW Club or any BMW Club in Canada or BMWCCA to participate.

For more information, answers to questions, to apply and/or register please contact the Race School Registrar Allan Lewis at:
• For general information about BMWCCA Club Racing or Club Racing schools please go

Please Note:

Experienced racers from BMW Club Racing and other sanctioned race series are invited to help instruct. We need racers to participate in discussions regarding a variety of topics, take part in on-track exercises, and observe and comment on the actions of the students. When on track, you will be using your own car and not be in the student's car. You will also be able to make use of available instructor sessions to get additional time on the track.

There is no charge to instructors for Saturday or Sunday.

I was there!

I attended this event out of curiosity in my E30. Definitely the slowest car in the class. But still ridiculous fun. Here's a rolling start exercise. I happen to get the Mazda at the bottom of 2 ... or.. everyone else was winding down for the next pace car, and I kept on going Either way I think I got just a tiny bit over-over-excited...
