Those of you who regularly attend our Club track days will be aware of how much fun and how brilliantly organised they are; however, with a membership of thousands, there are many of you who will have never experienced (or thought you wanted to experience) the thrill of driving on a circuit.
Whichever model of BMW you currently own, the design and chassis will have been tested on a race track somewhere in the world and fine-tuned for maximum enjoyment. Yet, no matter how hard or fast you think you drive your favourite A or B road, you’ll never experience just how good your BMW really is until you let it free on a properly laid piece of asphalt. One of the highlights of being a Member is that you can experience the real joy of owning a BMW on a private circuit, away from the hooligans that spoil ‘public’ track days and benefit from free (yes, free!) professional tuition.
As a Club, we hire the entire circuit and limit the numbers so you are never restricted to track time. Catering for complete novices up to full-licenced racers, everyone can benefit from the Association of Racing Driver Schools’ (ARDS) Super-Instructors who are available to be booked for in-car tuition.

The club will run these for the benefit of the members. They will be run by the members with the aim of breaking even so costs and numbers of drivers will be kept low so as to maximise time and space on track and value for money.
Please contact the office to advance book as we have different organisers allocated for each event, but Michelle in the office will oversee the payments - any questions she can then refer you to the organiser or they can call you. Failing this you can call Neil on 07767688233.
