Driver Education - Tom Pritchett: Not Present - Report Submitted There will be 7 events in 2011 including 2 weekends and one event with both a day and evening driving opportunity. February 19th is the date scheduled to help Pacific Raceway clean up the facility. Two events are scheduled back to back with the BMW club. This will provide an opportunity for two two-day driving events. SCCA has noise measuring equipment and is going to measure the noise level at the track. This is related to the neighbors that are complaining about the noise levels at Pacific Raceway and are against the Pacific Raceway expansion. Chief Driving Instructor - Bill Bauer: Present - Report Submitted The Instructor Clinic is held annually at Pacific Raceways. The goal for the instructor clinic is to set standards and build continuity between instructors so our track events run smoothly and our quality continually improves. This is an event for our instructors only. Our agenda is focused specifically on teaching and instructing. The PCA and BMW clubs hold the clinic jointly. Instructors and candidates who pass the evaluation are accepted as instructors in both clubs. BMW is hosting the Instructor Clinic in 2011.
