Tamara Hull

Tamara Hull

Treasurer

Tammi has been obsessed with cars since long before she could drive.  Drag racing, road racing, autocross, rally, endurance events like One Lap of America, the Open Track Challenge, the Great Race, Targa Newfoundland, driving schools at the Nurburgring, if it’s a fun way to play with cars, she’s probably done it or planning on doing it.  Helping teens learn life-saving car control skills is also important to Tammi, so that’s why she founded the BMW CCA Foundation and its Street Survival program, and helped found the NASA Car Control Clinic program and why she’s GGC’s driving events coordinator.  Tammi also love rollercoasters, ziplining, and volunteering.

Adam Mahoney

Membership Chair

Adam Mahoney is GGC’s new Membership Chair for the Golden Gate Chapter! He began his adventure with BMW just a few years ago with the purchase of a Mini Cooper S and shortly thereafter, his first BMW 3 Series. He quickly fell in love not only with the cars and the brand but the incredible people in the community. Most recently, he held the role of Co-East Bay Area Representative and he looks forward to continuing to serve and grow the chapter as Membership Chair.

Andy Daniels

Andy Daniels

Member-at-large

Andy’s been a member of the BMW CCA since the mid ’80s (the decade, not his age). Some time near the end of 2012, he and his wife Dana got bitten by the motorsports bug and ever since have been autocrossing and driving on tracks around the country every chance they can get. He’s been involved in the Chapter’s Car Control Clinic program since 2013 and nowadays, besides being a CCC and autocross instructor, he’s one of the Chapter’s CCC co-coordinators, helping to plan and run the clinics. When he’s not driving or working on your registrations in MSR, he enjoys board games, math, music and hanging out with Dana and the cats.
Quote: “Very pretty. Now can we take it out on the road?”
