Trillium's First International Driving School at Pittsburg International Race Complex (PIRC) - June 6-8, 2022

For 2022 Trillium is planning to hold our first international Advanced Driving School at the Pittsburg International Race Complex (PIRC) in Wampum, Pennsilvania (roughly 70 km northwest of Pittsburg) on June 6 - 8, 2022 (note this is Monday to Wednesday event). We will hold this event in conjunction with fellow BMW CCA chapters Genesee Valley and Alleghany. PIRC is a 4.47 km long track, rougly half a kilometer longer than Mosport, that includes a total of 19 turns. Originally constructed in 2002, the track was extended by almost 2 km in 2015 and repaved in 2017.

Message from the President

As another COVID infested year comes to an end, we find ourselves full of hope that 2022 will be a normal year. In the past 18 months, our activities have been severely curtailed, with the majority of them being cancelled. We did manage to hold some track events and some auto slalom events – all outdoors with social distancing. And SIM racing too!

Interested in AutoSlalom? Our New Season Calendar will be posted in early 2022

We know many of you are eagerly anticipating the first Autoslalom event of 2022. Typically events are held at the CAA Centre in Brampton in April or May.  Please contact us at autos@trilliumbmwclub.ca if you are interested in Trillium's AutoSlalom events.

UPDATE: Tire Rack Street Survival School Returns April 2022

Stats Canada reports that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death among drivers in their first 10 years of driving. They account for over 70 percent of accidental deaths in that age group. In an effort to reduce this risk and save lives, the Trillium BMW Club with support from PCA UCR is set to deliver one Tire Rack Street Survival School in 2021. This program is designed for relatively new drivers, within their first 10 years of driving, IN ANY CAR. There is no need to be a member of either the BMW Club or UCR to participate.
