The North Star Chapter is excited to offer our members a second opportunity to avail of an M Day put on by the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina this fall! This is a unique event using the Performance Center’s superb range of M cars, which includes the M2, M3, M4 and M5. Please note that this is not a BMW CCA event and the Performance Center staff continually makes changes to this program, so session content and cars available may vary from one school to the next.
There will be classroom instruction followed by various in-car activities with the Center’s exceptional instructors. In-car activities include skid pad, driving dynamics on special handling courses and timed competition events. No helmets or previous driving school experience is required. The program runs from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and includes instruction in current model M cars, lunch and gift bags.
The North Star Chapter has secured Saturday, October 15th, 2016 for this unmissable opportunity. We will be having a tour of the BMW CCA Foundation Museum) on Friday, October 14th from 3-5pm. Please email email@example.com if you would like to attend
The event itself will cost $690 per person and is based on 32 participants. This represents an exceptional discount for a Performance Center event and to qualify, the Chapter needs 32 participants registered by August 15th, 2016. You may join the wait list after this date. To ensure commitment, the Chapter requires that the event fee of $690 be paid in full at the time of registration. Each North Star member is permitted to bring a non-member guest whose fees would be paid by the member through the standard registration process. If the Chapter fails to secure 32 registered participants by August 15th, the event will be canceled and all fees will be refunded in full.
