///M Chapter Day @ BMW Performance Center, Thermal
The ///M Chapter is headed back to the BMW Performance Center West in Thermal, California, on December 2nd for our ///M Chapter Day event. The Performance Center West 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!
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!
For this event, two driver’s share a car throughout the day. This provides plenty of drive time for both participants and allows passengers to focus on the technical aspects of the exercises (if they choose to ride along.) This format provides a great mix of learning and driving. Don’t worry, you will get plenty of drive time and be exhausted by the end of the day. We can also offer driver’s a car to themselves for the entire day. No car sharing and double the drive-time, you will drive all day by yourself.
This school is a special program designed by the Performance Center staff specifically for BMW CCA chapters. It will be similar to previous ///M Chapter 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.
