Hi All -

LA Chapter of the BMW CCA is having a track school and also a Car Control Clinic at Cal Speedway on Oct. 7/8

I found out the Saturday Car Control Clinic is only $80 and another $20 if you want to do the Sat. night banquet.

Check the LA BMW CCA site calendar:

I had trouble finding information beyond 1-2 sentences on what exactly goes on in the Car Control Clinics. Can someone who has done one enlighten me?

I haven't been to a LA chapter school, but the Golden Gate Chapter has detailed information on their site: http://www.ggcbmwcca.org/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=17

GGC CCC includes 3 exercises: Skid Pad, Slalom and Braking. They are low speed in a large parking lot. You drive you own car, and will have an instructor with you most (or all) of the time, who will drive your car the first time thru the new exercise. You will need to wear a helmet for most of the exercises. The clubs often have loaners. You usually are required to drive with your front windows down.

If you have specific questions, ask, and I'll try to answer them.
