BMWCCA - Infineon Driving School?

Who else is going...I saw a couple other 135s on the list of attendees. I think I saw Sithiporn as one of 'em...

You will have fun. Too bad I can't go. BMW CCA does not allow convertibles at track events unless they have a roll bar (the stock pop ups do not count).

I am intrigued by this! I have always wanted to go to driving school at Infineon and this might just be perfect. Do you know how long each day is? Also, on the BMWCCA website it is says the the Car Clinic is required before you can attend this. What happens at the Car Clinic?

Thanks for your help!

Jeff

The car control teaches you...car control skills. :biggrin:

Basically it teaches you to handle your car that the limit. They do not want you surprised by what your car can do. There are skid pad, slalom and braking exercises.

The Car Control Clinic is required, and I think there is one on September 20th. My wife is going to that one, so that we can both go to Infineon.

The Clinic was pretty fun, I would definitely do that if nothing else...but taking some lessons at Infineon should be a blast!
