Thunderhill Driving School

NOTE: Student Registration Is Now Closed.

GGC Driving Schools are back again at Thunderhill!

Join the BMW CCA Golden Gate Chapter for our traditional fall driving school on October 2-3 on the 3-mile east course of Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, CA. Thunderhill is a beautiful and challenging race track, making it a great place to learn the art of high-performance driving from our dedicated team of instructors. Our HPDS and Advanced Data Coaching programs receive rave reviews from driving enthusiasts every year. You’ll go home with skills you can use on the roads every day as well as some great memories of laps at this twisty racetrack.

Every student (except those in Group S; see below) is assigned an instructor for the duration of the event. Our focus is on safety and learning. The price for this 2-day event is $850 for BMW CCA members.

Group S is available for a select group of enthusiasts who want to take the HPDS experience to the next level. This is a solo run group for the most advanced drivers. Group S will work with instructors both in the classroom and on the track (with advanced driving exercises). The Chief Driving Instructors will review your qualifications for entry into this run group. 

The Advanced Data Coaching (ADC) option is available to drivers in A, B or S run groups. Group A/B drivers in ADC will have some in-car instruction, but the focus will be on the data. 

Important COVID-19 information:

All persons attending this event, participants, guests and staff alike, must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, in enough time before the event (typically two weeks for most vaccines) so that it will be at full effectiveness by the time of the event. 

You will also be asked to explicitly opt in for in-car instruction. Note that if you opt out of in-car instruction as a student, there will likely be difficulty accommodating your request unless you are in Group S.

Important information about the waiting list:

  • If the registration form indicates that the event is sold out when you attempt to register, please sign up anyway: you will be waitlisted automatically, but we expect to accept a large number of students from the waiting list. We start with a conservative student count, and pull students from the waiting list as more instructors sign up for the event.


  • You will always be waitlisted when you register. This is a temporary screening step, and doesn’t mean we’re full up. Your registration will be screened and confirmed by the Chief Instructors.
