BMW CCA Golden Gate Chapter
Monday, Feb 17, 2020
BMW Performance Center, Thermal, CA
61st Ave and Tyler Street. Thermal, CA 92274
 

The Golden Gate Chapter is headed to the BMW Performance Center West at the Thermal Club near Palm Springs, CA for a Mini Driving Experience event on February 17, 2020 (that’s Presidents’ Day!! The Performance Center provides the Mini John Cooper Works (JCW) cars, instructors, gas, tires, and lunch at a fantastic facility at a private race track. All you have to do is get yourself there and be ready to drive.

 

During our Mini event, you'll focus on improving your driving skills and having a blast on the track through a combination of driving exercises, classroom instruction, and competitive events. And the kicker is the stunt school portion of the event. You’ll be doing handbrake turns! You will NOT need a helmet or any previous driving school experience. Any skill level is welcome!

 

This Mini Event is a special program designed by the Performance Center staff specifically for our chapter. You'll have instruction on proper driving position, vehicle dynamics, car-control skills, weight-transfer, oversteer/understeer, and improved vision in the classroom and on the track. The day will be divided into morning and afternoon sessions which will mix skill exercises and competitive events.

 

We will be driving Mini JCWs for this event. The cost for this event is $750 for a single seat in a car. The car is shared with another participant. If you would like the car to yourself, the cost will be $1500.The cost includes all the consumables on the car (car included) as well as lunch at the Performance Center.

 

Details on hotel(s) will follow shortly.

 

We'll meet at the Performance Center West at 0800 on Monday, February 16, 2020 and should end around 1700.

 

We're looking for a place to have a group dinner for those that are interested the night before (February 16, 2020). Details on that forthcoming!
