BMW offers high-performance driving on two types of courses
Spartanburg, South Carolina – The BMW Performance Centre is offering two driving courses – one behind the wheel, and one on the greens. Intended for vacationing enthusiasts, the new Drive Fore Drive program will offer high-performance driving and golf with PGA champions. A September 25-27 program features Matt Kuchar, while a November 3-5 program features Dave Edwards.
The program begins with advanced car control techniques such as braking, cornering and accelerating on the wet skid pad, autocross and other sections of the driving course. Participants will then drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains in a variety of BMW models.
The next day, participants will warm up on the driving range with a PGA champion and then tee off on an 18-hole, par-71 course. The course is open to all licensed drivers, with a maximum of 30 participants per course. The cost is US$2,650 for two participants, including meals and accommodations.
