Join us for a day of fast cars, sharp shooting and cigars at the Orvis Sandonna shooting range in Millbrook, NY. We'll pair up at CCC and rally our way to Orvis in a selection of our favorite cars. Lunch will be served when we arrive followed by 50 rounds on Orvis's 20-stand Sport Clay Course. Cigars may be purchased on site.
Dates: 4/23, 10/8
A full day of driving on some of our favorite sinuous stretches of pavement North of Manhattan. Follow a secret route simply described as "the best driving roads west of Stelvio Pass," you won't be disappointed.
Spend the day experiencing some of the best sports cars in the world, back to back to back. Everyone rotates through each car in the group, and we even feed you lunch at our favorite greasy spoon in Cold Spring, NY.
Dates: 5/14, 9/10
Some of our finest machinery doesn't necessarily have the kind of high horsepower that many people associate with supercars. In fact we think that some of the best fun on four wheels comes from pushing lower horsepower cars in the twisties. You get much more of a sense that you are actually doing the driving rather than being driven by the car and you get a chance to see what makes these cars the motoring legends they are. Featuring our favorite "slow" cars: E30 M3, '74 911, '74 BMW M2, '72 Datsun 240z, and Porsche 550 Spyder.
If you crave competition or want to learn a new skill, look no further than Endurance Karting for a fun, safe racing environment. Wheel to wheel racing against your friends and fellow CCC members, this 1.5 hour endurance race on Lime Rock Park's infield Autocross course features a fantastic variety of elevations changes and technical curves. Members can book a car to convoy up to Lime Rock Park with Jon and Adam, or use their own cars to get to the track.
Classic Car Club is once again rallying to our allies in the north for the 2014 Canadian Grand Prix. Hosted by Grand Prix Tours, it's sure to be more than just racing!

CCC has teamed up with SBRS to offer members a 10% discount on all Skip Barber Racing programs. What better way to kick off the summer than honing your car control skills at the legendary Lime Rock Park. Choose between a variety of different classes; we've chosen the following two where we hope to bring a group together, but if you see something else you'd like to enroll in, let us know and we can make it happen.
4/1 High Performance Driving School: No other Driving School puts as diverse a collection of cars at your disposal. This is your chance to put these high performance vehicles of different configurations (rear engine, rear drive; front engine, rear drive; front engine, front drive) to the test.

Spa & Nurburgring Rally
CCC is taking on the legendary Nurburgring once again. We've teamed up with RSR Nurburgring to put together a 2-day driving program on two of the best racetracks in the world. Circuit de Spa Francorchamps in the Belgian Ardennes and the Nurburgring Nordschleife in the German Eifel. Cars, fuel, track access, instructors, hotels, lunch and dinner are included. All you have to do is get yourself to the track! **
Day 1 - Arrive in Belgium
Day 2 - Circuit de Spa Track Day Four lapping sessions of 25 minutes each in track prepped Renault Clios, along with top notch instructors on hand. After the track day we'll head to the 'Ring for dinner, and a good nights sleep.
Day 3 - Nurburgring Track Day Full day of lapping the legendary Nordschlefe in pairs of two. An instructor will ride along for as many laps as you need to feel comfortable.
US Grand Prix Meetup
Come by the club for hot dogs, burgers, and beer. Oh yea, and the only US F1 race will be broadcast on a bunch of enormous flat-screens! Green flag at 2pm.
Feature Happy Hour Events
With more interest than ever in social events at CCC, we've been looking long and hard for interesting happy hour features. We'll be hosting our weekly happy hours with monthly features ranging from professional race teams to custom motorcycle builders and more.
Formula One Schedule:
While it's not uncommon to find a hardcore group of members huddled in the lounge in the middle of the night watching a race live from the other side of the world, if you value your sleep, join us on the Sunday of any race day to watch the race pre-recorded on CCC's DVR. The schedule for the season is below. Unless otherwise noted, we'll be hitting play on all pre-recorded races at 12:30pm on Race Day.
It should be a very interesting season. The 2014 regulations bring more changes to Formula One racing than any single season change in history and there is no telling what will happen. The motors have shrunk to 1.6L V6s, turbochargers are back, hybrid systems and batteries are bigger and fuel capacity is smaller. Teams are struggling with the reliability of the complex power systems and drivers are struggling to maintain grip while putting down the torque. Last year's leaders are losing pace and we're even seeing rookie teams posting formidable lap times. All that means we should see some great racing this year!
