Join Club Members on Sunday, September 15 for another great day of touring. From Federal Way, we’ll cross the Narrows Bridge and continue along scenic roads that line South Puget Sound and Hood Canal. Nice weather should provide us with views of the Olympic Mountains. This will be a relatively short tour, only about 175 miles round trip from Seattle. Our destination will be the The Ridge Motorsports Park near Shelton. It is an amazing venue featuring a wide smooth surface and plenty of elevation changes. Once there, we will be allowed to run a couple parade laps during the lunch break of our BMW CCA High Performance Driver Education day. No helmets or tech inspection will be required for the parade laps. The tour will conclude with our parade laps at the track, but you may want to stay and see what our HPDEs are all about. Grab a loaner helmet and take a ride along with one of the instructors for some hot laps. Warning: you may get hooked. As there are no formal picnic facilities at the track, you should plan on bringing your own lunch, or proceed up the road to restaurants in Shelton. Plan on meeting at 9:00 am in the Starbucks, 2032 S. 320th across from The Commons Mall, Federal Way. To get there, take exit 143 off of I-5, and go west a couple blocks. The Starbucks will be on your right. After a brief drivers’ meeting, we will depart at 9:30 sharp. All tours are driven on public roads, minding local traffic laws. We focus on safety, but always make an effort to find little-known twisty roads that are enjoyable at any speed. While we highly encourage participation in our High Performance Driving Schools, no special skills or equipment are needed to participate in a tour. Email your RSVP and any questions to tours@bmwpugetsound.com. We do require that one person in your car be a BMW CCA member. Hope to see you there!
