UPDATE: Tire Rack Street Survival School Returns November 6, 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 2022. 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.

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

For 2022 Trillium held our first international Advanced Driving School at the Pittsburg International Race Complex (PIRC) in Wampum, Pennsylvania (roughly 70 km northwest of Pittsburg) on June 6 - 8, 2022. The event was held in conjunction with fellow BMW CCA chapters Genesee Valley and Alleghany. PIRC is a 4.47 km long track (roughly half a kilometre longer than Mosport) that includes a total of 19 turns and some good straight runs to max out your speed. Originally constructed in 2002, the track was extended by almost 2 km in 2015 and repaved in 2017.
