Fifteen CCA members from across the country flocked to the BMW Performance Center this past Labor Day Weekend to attend the CCA only Two-Day M School on September 1-2. This trip included Club members from chapters as far away as California, Oregon, and Wisconsin. For some, it was their first Club experience, but judging from their enthusiastic response, it will not be their last!
The members participated in the full curriculum of the Two-Day M School, and drove the 1M Coupe, the Competition Package M3, and the new F10 M5. The members practiced heel-toe downshifting in the 1M Coupe and braking/cornering in the M3s. The most exhilarating and humbling exercise involved wrestling the 560 horses of the new M5 on the water-saturated skid pad. These members were some of the first in the country to experience the power of the new M5—4.4 liter, V-8 engine with twin-power turbo technology—which everyone seemed to love! On the second day, the members practiced driving the track line and, by the afternoon, they had donned their new helmets, and were lapping the nearly 2-mile course in both the M3 and M5 with speed and confidence.
These CCA only Two-Day M Schools are so popular that they have been selling out in 48 hours. We will offer them on four occasions next year in 2013, as well as offering our Ladies’ Spa trip in April, and our Couples’ Driving Experience trip in March.
