Burbles of Bavaria

When: Sunday, Oct 20th 10:00a-2:00p

Where: Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie

What: BMW car show and Autocross

Description:

The Lone Star Chapter, in conjunction with the North Texas Bimmers Club (https://www.facebook.com/NorthTexasBimmersClub/), ///M Gruppe  (https://www.mgruppe.org/) and additional BMW-related sponsors, invite you to come out and show your old or new BMWs (or bikes) at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie.  The plans are to have a small raffle for prizes and to enjoy the day out at the park. We have room for 365 spots – can you fill them up?

Special Considerations:

  • No loud cars (we do not want to affect any horses at the Park that may result in us not being asked to return).  This could mean exhaust, burnouts or even music.
  • No beer and alcohol on site
  • Be respectful of others and their cars – they are proud of their car just as you are proud of your car.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Spring HPDE Registration is now Open!

Our Spring High Performance Driver’s Education Weekend (Saturday, May 4th & Sunday, May 5th) registration is now open on MotorSportReg.com.

Advanced (B) and Advanced+ (A) Level Solo Students (Combined Group) $259!

Novice/Beginner (D) and approved Intermediate (C) Level students $299!

This High Performance Driving School will give you the opportunity to drive your car at speed and to experience the potential of the unique combination of car and driver. It is safe, demanding and most importantly FUN! All students will alternate between classroom sessions and time on the track with an instructor. The individualized instruction is a key to this program that has been developed over decades, and compares very favorably with commercial schools costing many times more. Our experienced instructors have come from racing, autocrossing and BMW CCA driving schools.

We will be running the 1.7 mile track in the COUNTER-CLOCKWISE direction on SATURDAY and will reverse the run direction and run CLOCKWISE on SUNDAY.  Cars of all makes are welcome although there are special requirements/restrictions for convertibles (see the registration link for more information).  Special thanks to Autobahn BMW for their generous sponsorship.

Want more details?  Facebook Message us, email us or come out to one of our meet & greets and we’ll answer any questions you have.

Track Day this weekend, Registration closes May 1st

Track Day This Weekend

I always look forward to our HPDE events as it gives me the chance to drive my ’09 M3 they way it was meant to be driven.  I’m not trying to be a club racer, but I enjoy the thrill and the challenge of controlling my car at high speeds.  To me, it’s similar to golf, in that it’s just you, the car, and the track.

I’ve been doing track events for 10 yrs, but I like to run in Intermediate to take advantage of one of the greatest benefits of our HPDE events and that is the educational aspect of it.  Our instructors provide coaching to help you learn and refine your skills as you progress in your abilities.  While some may refer to our event as a track day, technically, it is a High Performance Driver’s EDUCATION event and we’re all here to learn, regardless of level.

So, there’s one more day to register (Registration Closes May 1st) and about a week to get your car prepped for the event!   What’s holding you back?
