any Canadian here know some good race driving school?
 
i'm in montreal, i'm looking for it for a long time. tried to see BMW driving school. but i dont know if they really teach racing skills,and it's too expansive,and now,they only teach how to drive with BMW 330 or M3 SMG. no manual anymore,that sucks. i need some race driving school to learn the skill,which is cheaper than BMW's.

There is the Bridgestone Academy at Mosport. I attended the precursor, the Spenard-David Racing School when it was at Shannonville.

There is also the Jim Russell Racing School at Mt. Tremblant.

I attended the 3 day "competition" school or whatever it's now called.

If you go to MCO say hi to Rob Microys (the organizer and registrar) for me. He's an on-line buddy of mine from way back from the SE-R mailing list.

Hi Keble,

Driving BMW330 or M3 is offered by BMW Canada. It is expensive, you have to spend first 2 schools on the parking lot etc.

There is also "BMW Club of Canada" (BMWCC) and "BMW Club of America" (BMWCCA) in US.... not affiliated with BMW Canada or BMW North America.
They offer Advanced Performance Driving schools which teach everything about racing and you get to drive your own car on the big racetracks. In addition to BMW Advanced Driving schools, you can sign-up and attend PORSCHE Driving schools normally reffered to as "DE" - Driving education.

Take a look at this BMW/Porsche chapter websites (check out their calendars):

BMW club of quebec: http://www.clubbmw.ca/
BMW Trillium chapter (Ontario): http://www.trillium-bmwclub.ca/trill...DriverTraining
BMW Ottawa chapter: http://bmwccottawa.org/cgi-bin/yabb/...num=1080867497

PORSCHE (PCA NER): http://www.porschenet.com/TrackProg.html
>>> They hold school at Mosport (Ontario) and Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant race track (Quebec)
RENNSORT PORSCHE (Quebec): http://www.rennsport.ca/

>>> http://www.trillium-bmwclub.ca/trill...jsp?postid=476

You just need to join one chapter. For example, above Porsche clubs recognize BMWCC members so you don't need to join them to attend their schools.


RACETRACKS

Le Circuit: http://www.lecircuit.com/ (in your own backyard)
Mosport: http://www.mosport.com/ (a bit of drive for you but it is the same when I go from Toronto to Mt.Tremblant :-)
Calabogie: http://www.calabogiemotorsports.com/ (new racetrack being built close to Ottawa)

Let me know if you want more info.
