You must be a member of NJ BMWCCA to participate. If you are a BMWCCA member but in another chapter, you can add an additioanl chapter for $13.50 per year per chapter.

I heard the funniest driving school quote EVER at the June school/club race last year. Going into the left hander, an E46 M3 suffered the typical bearing failure resulting in coolant, oil, and connecting rods all over the track right in front of me and a race prepped E36 M3. I found the driver of the E36 in the paddack after the run to talk about the incident and he said, "They should back charge E46 M3 drivers for all the track time lost to cleaning up after them."

If I can scrape up a little looch I will definitely try to be there. I'd much rather attend an NJ school and meet some of you guys. The Boston Chapter events haven't been terribly exciting from my experience. If not, I'll try to make the NHIS event this summer if any of you guys are heading up. Ed, you said you were thinking about it?

The NJ Chapter gets LOTS of applications for the LRP schools. To increase your chances of getting in, make sure you include everything (copy of your membership card, SASE, complete and correct application form) in the envelope. Also, walk your envelope into the post office and ask someone behind the counter to hand postmark it for you. If all things are equal, the postmark from the first day of registration beats the later postmark.

I had to go to a customer site out in PA today which meant I could not walk my application up to a counter at a post office for a postmark. Instead, at 4:30am on my way to PA, I found a mailbox in front of the local post office which is supposedly emptied at 7:00am. In theory, the envelope will receive a 2/17 postmark. I guess I'll know for sure in a few weeks if I get my registration package.

Work sucks. I need to become independently wealthy.

Does previous experience matter for this?
I made sure to include everything, and I had the envelope hand post-marked, but I had no experience to list on the application. Will this affect chances of registration?

Your experience level does not matter. They run 4 groups that vary in experience level from novice to instructor at most schools. The only exception is the June driver school/club race. They typically have fewer instructors due to the club race so they eliminate the novice run group.

I hope to see you there. I usually park near or under the big tree in the paddock at LRP. Look for the Delphin Grey E30 with patchy clear coat.

Time to just wait for the registration package, I guess.
I'll finally get to meet the (in)famous Ed whom people talk about at autocrosses (though hopefully they'll be a bushingfest before then).

I just realized I put "they'll be" when in fact I should have put "there'll be". That's disgraceful. Too late to edit.
F*ck. I need to start reading my posts before posting.
But yes, bushingfest, swayfest, whateverelsefest - I'm all for it.

It rained the first half of the day. There was standing water on track for the first two runs. The third run was just damp and the fourth had a full dry line all the way around. I actually like driving in the wet because it slows everyone down and reduces the HP advantage.
