Tire Rack Street Survival

Note: The date for this event has changed.

Back by Popular Demand — Teen Street Survival on October 21th! You spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars teaching your kids to play music and sports. Why not invest just $75 and 1 day to teach them driving skills that will keep them alive to enjoy all those other events and activities that life has to offer. Not your typical Drivers Ed, Street Survival will teach your young drivers what to do when bad stuff happens out on the road so they don’t panic but instead maintain or regain control of the car. It’s a very small investment for such a huge potential return. Contact Ken Finley at streetsurvivalregistration@houston-bmwcca.com or go to the website at www.streetsurvival.org. Only 30 spaces available so check those calendars and sign up early. Click on the image for a link to the registration web site. Click on the video below for an example of what to expect.

Registration for this event is now open at motorsportreg.com.

As always, volunteers are vital to making this event a success. We need people to help reset downed cones, direct traffic, setup lunch, take water to the students, instructors and volunteers, and much more. To volunteer, contact Jim Iden at streetsurvivalvolunteers@houston-bmwcca.com. Qualified instructors are also needed. To volunteer as an instructor, contact Walter Phillips at streetsurvivalinstructors@houston-bmwcca.com.

Austin Schnell Fest at COTA

Greetings BMW CCA members,

As you have heard we are joining forces with the Lone Star, Hill Country and Maverick Regions of the Porsche Club of America to put on driving schools at COTA this year. The events are titled “Austin Schnell Fest”. Registration will open on September 15th. Registration will be handled on clubregistration.net so if you don’t have an account with them, you should do so now rather than when registration opens (an account is free).

When you register for an account on clubregistration.net, please fill in your BMW CCA membership number on the profile page. We will be checking this against our national database to ensure active PCA and BMW CCA members are given first priority for spots into this event.

Remember to sign up early and sign up often. Please go to BMWCCA.org to renew your membership. Also tell your friends to go there and sign up for a membership to get into the first wave of people that can sign up for this event. We are expecting to sell this event out quickly.
