The Basics of Performance.
This is M 101 - designed to help you learn the limits of BMW M Cars while exploring your own. To owners of recently purchased M cars - welcome to the family, let's get you up to speed.
What you'll learn
Slip, then grip
Take one M car. Add water, subtract grip. Feel the difference between under- and oversteer, and learn to control the back of the car with throttle. Get it right, and you’ll start to glide sideways through our polished concrete skidpad with ease.
This program has you share an M car with another driver as you both learn the ins-and-outs of high-speed driving and control.
