Sandlapper ///M Club Day
BMW CCA – Sandlapper Chapter
Saturday, August 17, 2019
BMW Performance Center, Greer, SC

Registration ends in 2 months on August 16, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT

The Sandlapper Chapter is offering a ///M Club Day on Saturday, August 17, 2019. This will be open to all CCA members. So, come on down ya’ll.

The Performance Center provides current model ///M cars, currently, M2, M3, and M5’s are planned to be used. If you’ve never been there, the Performance Center, across from the factory in Greer, SC, is a world-class facility. The track was newly paved last summer, great surface!

Your Instructors are all world-class drivers and communicators, you’ll have a blast!
Just sign up, show up, and drive.
M cars, gas, tires and lunch are provided as well as an exceptional experience.

No previous driving school experience is required. Novice or experienced and back for more, all are encouraged to attend. The goal is to become a better driver and have FUN. The course is composed of classroom instruction (minimal as there is lots of track time) and a mix of driving experiences that will improve your understanding of car control dynamics. Your skills will develop over the day through braking and handling, skidpad, and road course exercises. There are also some competitive but FUN events.

The cost for this event is $700.

If you are coming from out of the area, contact me for hotel information. As this develops we can plan a dinner on Friday night and Saturday to review the event and tell lies about our performance.
