Hey all you track junkies, it is almost time to visit Chuckwalla for our annual chapter driving school! This is the third year that this wonderful track will play host to our club’s premier event! For those of you that were there last year, I am sure that this year will be much better than what we all experienced with gale force winds and blowing sand! I think I just got the last of it out a couple of weeks ago! March should always be the best desert weather time of year! We will be running our school in the traditional clockwise direction. The best part of running this way is the dive down towards the bowl section. This should offer some great photo ops and you will really want to check out the photo shop after your sessions!

There are some new amenities to look forward to at the track as well. First up, and perhaps most important, are the permanent restroom facilities! Also, there are semi-permanent classrooms as well as a PA system to help with the announcements. There is diesel fuel available as well as three different types of high octane fuel.

For those of you contemplating attending your first driving school, ALL of this will be new to you! If you have never taken your BMW to a track, you owe it to yourself to do so! You will be in your own run group commensurate with your experience. If you are a novice, no need to worry, you will be on track with others just like you! You will be paired up with one instructor on Saturday and another one on Sunday. We do this in order to maximize feedback on your progress. You will enjoy plenty of track time over the weekend!

Once again, our cost to you for this year is only $475. If you sign up on MotorsportsReg prior to March 1st, your price will only be $425. If you decide to opt out of our traditional Saturday night banquet/raffle, your pre-March 1st registration cost would only be $400! The best part is you will still experience same quality instruction and safe driving environment you have grown accustomed to from our Chapter.

This year, our headquarters will be at the Royal Plaza Inn. It is a casual 35-40 minute drive west of the track. It will be a great time to catch up with friends you can carpool back with, or you can use the time to dream about the fantastic buffet or what you will win in the raffle. Maybe it will be those Toyo Tires or some other BMW goodies from BMW Escondido? Your cost per night at the hotel with our special rate is $89.00 per night. The nice thing about this hotel is that it has an adjoining restaurant, Cactus Jack’s, that can accommodate us on Saturday night. This means that we will not have to drive anywhere once we get back to our hotel.

Once again, I would like to extend my warmest thanks to both of our long terms sponsors, BMW of Escondido and Toyo Tires.

See you there!
