I Went to Autocross a G30 5 Series at BMW Ultimate Driving Experience

I went to the BMW Ultimate Driving Experience last Saturday to autocross the G30 540i, including the xDrive, and I took some photos of how my day went. Check it out...

BMW really put some money into the setup. Here's the entrance right next to the check in.



Registration tent where you get your hard card and get assigned to one of the 6 tracks.





A BMW event is not official until you have a super large activation with some M models.



It was a G30 event, but this M 740i was insane.









Inside the tent is another huge display of partnerships, movie cars, VR demo, product displays, etc. Oh yea, and super cold A/C.

















Gotta keep the girlfriend happy.



Before our 11 AM start time they brought us to a meeting room, similar to what they do at the BMW Performance Center, for a proper instructional briefing. They went over how weight transfer works during braking and accelerating, oversteer/understeer concept, track vision…things like that.



After the briefing, we went outside where a fleet of G30s were waiting for us to shuttle us to the track.





We met our instructors here.



They offered us some cold water in these BMW coolers.



Then we went on the track for some instructor laps, and finally hot laps.





My friend won the fastest lap of our track so he got this little prize.



Off to track 1 where all the winners from each track then competed for the overall fastest driver.







It was a super fun day and can't wait to go to another BMW event. Registration is all full (I think) so if you missed out make sure to stay on top next time!
