The National Capital and Tarheel Chapters are headed back to South Carolina on May 14th for our first 2011 ///M Club Day drivers' school at the BMW Performance Center.

As always, the Performance Center provides current model ///M cars, instructors, gas, tires, lunch and a first-class facility for a fun-filled day.  Just show up ready to drive!  The school’s focus is to improve your driving skills through a combination of driving exercises, classroom instruction and competitive events.  No helmets or previous driving school experience is required.  All skill levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.  

This school is a special program designed by the Performance Center staff specifically for BMW CCA chapters.  It will be similar to previous ///M Club Day events, which have included instruction on proper driving position, vehicle dynamics, car-control skills, weight-transfer, oversteer/understeer and improved vision.  The day is divided into morning and afternoon sessions which mix skill exercises and competitive events, including skid pad wet/dry courses, braking and handling practice, autocross and more.  

We will be driving current model BMW ///M Cars for this event.  Please note that the Performance Center staff continually makes changes to this program, so session contents and the cars available may vary from one school to the next.  

Our event hotel is the Greenville Marriott.  The special BMW rate includes the breakfast buffet for up to two people plus Internet service.  Register at: www.marriott.com/GSPAP and enter   BMW   as the Corporate code.  The Marriott has a great lobby bar for getting together after the driving and dinner events.  Remember, no food service is available for breakfast on Saturday morning at the Performance Center.
