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. PIRC (also referred to as 'PittRace') holds the SCCA, NASA, and MotoAmerica Championship race series annually. PIRC is a FIM Grade 1 track. Grade 1 is the highest grade level given by the the FIA for race track surfaces. To learn more about Pittrace, visit their web site to see more details (https://www.pittrace.com/).

While the number of Trillium attendees was small in 2022, all commented the track was well worth the trip to Pennsylvania. Looking for a larger group in 2023. Hopefully we can a larger group and more members can experience the excitement of PittRace plus get the opportunity to meet fellow BMW CCA members.
