Fall 2018 ///M Club Day @ BMW Performance Center

BMW Performance Center

About this event

The National Capital and Tarheel Chapters are headed back to the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina on October 20th and 21st for our last two ///M Club Day driving events of 2018. As always, the Performance Center provides current model ///M cars, instructors, gas, tires, lunch and a first-class facility for a fun-filled day at the track. Just show up ready to drive!

NOTE: Due to high demand for our ///M Club Day events the past couple of years, we have scheduled two days back-to-back for our Spring weekend.  Both Saturday and Sunday schools will be the same program.  Applicants are welcome to sign up for either day or both days. 

The focus of this event is on improving your driving skills and having fun 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 the National Capital and Tarheel 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 ///M 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 Saturday morning at the Performance Center.

Completed applications will be accepted first-come, first-served, based on the registration date. Applications will be considered complete upon receipt of both the registration and full payment by credit card or eCheck. Your payment reserves your spot! 

Each driver must pay the $750.00 fee to participate on each day. Sorry, no one drives for free. Non-driving guests are welcome for Foundation tour, social / dinner events and to accompany the instructors at the track. Non-drivers may not ride in the cars on track with participants.  

Based on high demand and past experience, you should act early to reserve your spot in this event.
