The National Capital and Tarheel Chapters are headed back to the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina on October 20th and 21st for our last two ///M Club Day driving events of 2018. 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 Spring 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 (http://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.

Hi Doug. I want to register for the October school. It appears I need to ente my credit card info in order to get in the waiting list. When do they actually charge the card for the fee? We spoke at the CCA event today at Sterling BMW. Iím concerned getting charged and for some unforeseen reason, I have to cancel and then get a credit back on my card. How does that work?

Thanks....Jack

Hi Jack - Nice talking with you the other day.

I don't charge the cards until late August or first part of September. Your registration now does not have any financial obligation. Hopefully, it puts this event on your calendar for October. I will notify everyone starting in August about admittance into the school and let you know ahead of time when I charge your credit card.

Also, I don't read this Board very often. Please feel free to email me directly at any time with any questions.

Best, Doug
