Hello fellow forum users. My name is JoElla. I drive a 99 MCoupe at High Performance Driving Schools and instruct for several BMW Chapters. VIR is my home track. Speaking of tracks, our 2012 (can you believe it is already time to plan the next season?) dates are: Feb 25 & 26; June 30 & July 1 and August 25 & 26 with the Fridays prior to the school being reserved for Instructor Orientation. I hope to see many of your there. I also drive a Mini Cooper S and a 335i. Have the right tool for every job, I say. I have been active in the BMW Club for a very long time. I drove my daughters to the school bus in a 1600 followed by a 2002, so you see my BMW roots go deep. I am currently President of the Tarheel Chapter, we are proud to have members from all over the country as well as some from abroad. I think VIR may be the reason, but we also like to think it may be due to our Southern Hospitality. I am looking forward to another great year with my BMW family.
