February Tarheel BMW CCA school at VIR

Just a heads up so you guys can pencil it in on your calendars--the tentative date for the Tarheel BWM CCA HPDE at VIR is February 25-26. This one is usually on the Full Course. Registration on motorsportreg.com is supposed to open in early January.

Didn't know you went with the Smartycam as well, have you tested it out as far as syncing up the video or is it automatic?

And it's already posted on mentioned weekend in this post. Registration will be sometime in January.


It's confirmed that I will be getting off for this event. I even gave myself a three day window to get out there if the weather is bad.

I usually get an email letting me know when registration opens, and will definitely post info as soon as I get it. Registration is usually in 3 stages--Tarheel BMW CCA members first, then members of other BMW CCA chapters, then everyone else. If you're a BMW CCA member, you can call the national office and add secondary membership in Tarheel for a nominal amount, to assure first dibs on the school.

That said, they max out at 10 cars per mile, so on a full course school that's 32 cars per run group. Last couple schools; run groups have been in the mid to high 20s, maybe 30, and haven't sold out.

Nick--don't even say the "W" word! The lucky streak will continue, and we'll be fine!!!

I hope so, i'm just itching to get back on track and test out the new AiM products so I can finally put to use race studio 2...something it appears you have become real resourceful with!

Literally just got an email that registration opens at 8:00PM tonight (Mon, Jan 9) on Motorsportreg.com. Not sure if this is Tarheel BMW CCA members only at this point--will see what it says on MSR tonight.

You can always call the National office and get secondary membership in Tarheel for about $10.
