BMW is back with a new series of high adrenaline driver training and experience packages for 2018. Driving enthusiasts have the opportunity to get behind of the wheel and experience some of the latest and high performance BMW M and M Performance vehicles from the range.

Teaming up with Motor Sport Vision (MSV) Track Days, the programmes will run across some of the best motor racing circuits in the UK from Brands Hatch in Kent to MSV’s newly acquired Donington Park facility in the East Midlands.

Introduction to Performance
Designed for those new to the track, guests will learn the basic techniques, develop their own skills and gain experience and confidence of track driving, all whilst under the guidance of a BMW trained instructor.

The Introduction to Performance experience includes: Getting familiar with the track in a dynamic track session in either a BMW M140i or BMW M4. Putting their skills to the test in BMW M handling activities. Taking the wheel of a high-performance track prepared BMW M4 and hot laps with a professional driver, complete with an on-board video of their experience.

Masters of performance 
Guests can also push the BMW M Models to their limits in the Masters of Performance programme, where they can drive the latest models from the range including the latest 600hp BMW M5.

Activities include, on-track driving where guests can learn how to reduce their track times in the latest models such as the BMW i8 and the new BMW M4 CS. An advance handling activity where guests have the opportunity to learn more dynamic driving such as drifting and slalom activities. As well as hot laps with a professional racing driver, guests also have the opportunity to hone their track skills with Racelogic video data analysis allowing them to critique their drive and improve their technique.

Both packages include full BMW hospitality with lunch and breakfast or afternoon tea dependant on session.

Prices for BMW Driving Experience Days start at £295 and are available to book for the first time online, now at https://drivingexperiences.bmw.co.uk/

BMW Driving Experiences: More than 40 years of experience
It was more than 40 years ago that BMW became the first carmaker to offer drivers the chance to hone their skills at the wheel with a view to getting the most out of their dynamically superior cars.

The official start of the first BMW Driver Training events in Manching were on 22 April, 1977 and this was organised and managed by the relatively new operation of BMW Motorsport GmbH. With a starting attendance of just 15 participants aged 22 to 45 years-old, BMW Driver Training programmes have now grown significantly with thousands of people every year receiving expert tuition in on-road, on-track and off-road driving across an array of machinery. The accepted age now starts at 11-years-old for the YoungDrive! programme but the aims both then and today remains broadly the same; to create an ideal balance between perfect cars and equally perfect driving skills.

MSV and BMW extend partnership to include Donington Park
MotorSport Vision (MSV) has extended its partnership with BMW UK to include its newly-acquired Donington Park circuit business, making BMW's high-performance 'M' cars available to even more driving enthusiasts. Youngsters will also have the opportunity to get behind the wheel for the first time in a MINI ONE at the famous East Midlands venue.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
