About this event
The New Jersey and National Capital chapters are headed back to the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina on September 17th for another ///M Club Day driving event. 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!
Due to high demand for our ///M Club Day events, we have scheduled an additional school for 2022. Applicants can sign up now! As usual, two people share driving in a car for the fee of $750 per driver per day. We can also offer driver's a car to themselves for the entire day. No sharing, you will drive all day for just $1,500!
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 encouraged to attend.
This school is a special program designed by the Performance Center staff specifically for the New Jersey and National Capital 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 recommended 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. There are also a number of other hotels in the area to choose from if the Greenville Marriott does not work for you.
