what you'll learn
Wet skid pad.
Actually losing control of your car can be an eye-opening experience. In this exercise, you'll try to do it on purpose. Practice understeer and oversteer conditions at the limit on our wet skid pad.
Controlling your car during panic braking means more than just pressing firmly on the pedal. Here, you’ll travel in a straight line and stop in as short a distance as possible while engaging ABS. Then move on to panic braking while turning your car around a corner, learning how far to look ahead.
Understanding Stability control.
Dynamic Stability Control is standard on every BMW, and it can mean the difference between maintaining control and heading off course. Your instructor will turn this system off for the first part of this exercise, showing you how far you can push the car at the limit. Then, we’ll engage the system to demonstrate how it intervenes and helps you maintain control in a variety of conditions.
This isn’t your normal lane change maneuver. We’ll simulate a sudden obstacle in your path that will force you to make a quick high-speed change of direction, then point the car back into your original lane. Look at where you want the car to go, and you’ll master this exercise.
At the end of each day, you’ll combine everything you’ve learned and take your BMW through a timed lap around our track. Control the car through understeer and oversteer conditions, learn the correct driving line, utilize proper vision and remember to control the car through panic-braking situations. Can you come out with the best time of the day?
