Driving School in the Midwest... NOT Q Club
OK folks here's the scoop even before the entry forms are done!
On May 18th and 19th the St. Louis Chapter of the BMW CCA will be having
there spring driving school at Gateway International Raceway 3 miles from
Downtown St. Louis. This is the same event that Scott J. Wrote up last
year as "Gateway with the M-Boys" This is One FUN event. The people
putting it on are first rate, and EVERY instructor is either a National
Level License Holder in the SCCA, A FIA/IMSA Comp License holder or
Instructor for a National Driving school like Skip Barber or Russel.
(Unlike many other events that you might go to....) I will be Instructing
(Schedule Permitting!). At this Event you will spend the morning of the
first day doing Skip Barber excersises and reciving MUCHO classroom time
TEACHING you the basics and giving you a solid foundation to enjoy the
next day and half! We will then break for a lunch that is provided
(Barbecue!) both days. The rest of the first day will be spent lapping
and observing with instructors. The next morning will start at 8:00 am
with cars on track at 8:30. It's a lap till you drop or the sun set's
whichever comes first day. Instructors will ride with you in the morning
and if you show the instructor that your well aware of the responsibility
of piloting a 3800lbs weapon we will turn you loose on your own!
How much is all this knowledge and fun you ask? $150 for both days,
lunch included, and loaner helmets are availble. So how many listers am
I going to see there? Compared to some of the other events many of use
have attended this is a VERY Cost effictive weekend With a emphisis of
fun and best of all KNOWLEDGE.
BTW in the past there has always been a VERY cool assortment of cars at
this event.... Scott remember the Barney purple Ferrari? Usually lot's
of Louti, NSX's, a Lambo or 2, 3 Trans-Am vintage cars have run, Some WAY
fast M3's, and all sorts of other cool stuff.
I hope to see LOT'S of Q's out there! I'll be giving PLENTY of rides....
and I even might bring out my lap record holding '72 Datsun 240Z.....
Anyone that is interested PLEASE let me know. This event typically fills
up FAST so get in touch with me asap and I can get you signed up.
