I had a great conversation with my friend and client Wayne Dobson this week. We were talking about his decision to retire and how he’s currently set-up. Not one to drive quietly off into the sunset, Wayne told me about his next endeavor with BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing Schools. Enjoy!
BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing Schools announced on January 10:
In our continuing effort to bring the sprint racing community nothing but the best in on-track experience, I am extremely pleased to announce that Wayne Dobson has been appointed to lead our much-admired BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing program as Director.
Wayne joined the BMW CCA in 2007, graduating from our BimmerWorld sponsored school at Mosport in May 2011. He received his race license in 2012: since that time, Wayne has enjoyed considerable success in the IS class, consistently achieving podium placement in BMW Club Racing’s National rankings.
He has been a regular member of the on-track coaching community for our program for many years, where he is recognized for his ability to share what is important in the classroom. It is Wayne’s consistent ability to be in alignment with our Chief Instructors and our students that makes me especially pleased that he has signed on to lead our program.
And to support CRS graduates as they transition to Club Racing license holders, I am also very pleased to announce that Dan Feldmann has agreed to become Lead Mentor for BMW CCA Club Racing. Dan has raced with us since 2010, starting in SE36, then moving to IS class from 2013 to 2018. He now races a 2002 e46 M3 in HP and has been actively involved with the CRS program as an on-track coach and committee member since 2012.
Dan will be developing our new racer mentoring program – the early vision behind this includes the recruitment and assignment of licensed racers as mentors to CRS graduates to support them in the time between graduation and their first race as a rookie. Additionally, we would like to increase our advocacy for rookies at Club races; Dan will also be looking at how to best provide at-the-track mentoring for them.
The BimmerWorld BMW CCA Club Racing School series has graduated well in excess of 1000 students since its start and I am delighted that Wayne and Dan have joined our team to maintain and advance BMW CCA’s tradition of excellence in on-track instruction.
Action Line: Retirement isn’t the end. It should be a new beginning. It’s time for you to chase your dreams, even at high speed if that’s what you love. I’d love to talk with you.
