Fall 2023 ///M Club Day @ BMW Performance Center

BMW Performance Center East

About this event

Please read carefully as some information has changed since last year.

The National Capital and Tarheel Chapters are headed back to the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina on October 28th and 29th for our last two-day ///M Club Day driving event of 2023. This marks the 20th year that we have been sponsoring this event with the BMW Performance Center!

Why drive with us? Our group is comprised 100% of true BMW enthusiasts. You can drive other events with strangers, but you know the drivers in our group are part of the BMW CCA family and we know that you are, too. Our events are specifically designed for BMW CCA club members and are something special to attend! 

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 are required. All skill levels are welcome and everyone 18 and older is encouraged to attend. As always, the Performance Center provides current model ///M cars, world-class instructors, gas, tires, lunch and a first-class facility for a fun-filled day at the track. Just show up ready to drive! 

Due to high demand for our ///M Club Day events, we have again scheduled two days back-to-back for our Fall weekend.  Both Saturday and Sunday schools are the same program.  Two driver's share a car throughout the day. Applicants are welcome to sign up for either day or both days. We can also offer driver's a car to themselves for the entire day. No car sharing, you will drive all day by yourself. 

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 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, lapping 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 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.

  • The NCC and the Tarheel event coordinators accept applicants into this school through the registration site.
  • Each BMW CCA member can bring one guest under their membership/registration/payment.
  • Contact BMW CCA Headquarters to become a member of the NCC and/or Tarheel chapters for priority acceptance.
  • Acceptance into this event will begin starting on or about June 1st, 2023 by the event coordinator. 
  • Registration on this site does not constitute acceptance into this event. It places you in the registration queue and on the wait list.
  • All drivers must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver's license. Sorry, no exceptions.
  • The cost is $795.00 per day per driver and includes driving Performance Center ///M cars, tires, gas, instructors and lunch at the Performance Center.
  • If you want to drive both seats in a car by yourself all day, register for two drivers and leave a note or email the registrar to say you want to drive all day by yourself. You will be charged $1,590 for both seats.
  • Travel expenses, meals and lodging costs are the responsibility of the attendees and not included in the $795.00 event registration fee.
  • You do not have to own a BMW or an M-car to attend this event. (However, be prepared - you may want to purchase one when you return home!)
  • BMW Foundation tours will be available at the discretion and schedule of the Foundation.

Event requirements

We anticipate, based on past experience, that these schools will fill rapidly.  The cost of the school is $795.00 per driver per day.  Registration will open at 7:00 PM on Monday, January 9th and close on October 8th or when the event is full, at the discretion of the event coordinators.

For this joint event, the National Capital and Tarheel chapters are each allocated 16 slots (school has 32 drivers/seats in total.) 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! 

After your acceptance into the school, your credit card will be charged the event fee of $795. Once your fee has been charged, if you have to cancel for any reason, $750 will be refunded. $45 will be withheld to cover our unrecoverable registration fees.

Each driver must pay the $795.00 fee to participate on each day. Sorry, no one drives for free. Non-driving guests are welcome for the Foundation tour, social and dinner events. Non-drivers may not ride in any cars or be on track.

Based on high demand and past experience, you should act early to reserve your spot in this event. If you can drive on Sunday, your chances of getting into the school may be greater than for the Saturday school, which usually fills up first. NCC and Tarheel members have registration priority until May 1st. After that date, slots will be open to all current, qualified BMW CCA members.

NOTE:  Registering on this site does not mean that you are automatically accepted into this event. If accepted, confirmation information and instructions will be sent to your email address starting on or about June 1st, 2023. 

Do not make final, non-refundable travel arrangements to this event until you are accepted, in writing, by email, from the event coordinator. Neither the National Capital or Tarheel chapters, or the BMW CCA, will reimburse any registrant or be responsible in any way at any time for any travel-related expenses incurred by participants to this event.

You are encouraged to check your registration / acceptance / wait list status in your account after June 1st.
