    10/28/2017 - 10/29/2017 - Fall 2017 ///M Club Day @ BMW Performance Center

    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 ///M Club Day driving events of 2017. 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 Fall 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.

    Does anyone know when confirmations will be sent out for this event? In the event description it says August 1 but that date has obviously passed.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I tried that but I'm not sure if my email got through - it may have been caught in spam or something like that.
