2020 BMW UDE schedule

I got an email from BMW about the UDE for this year. Already signed up.

At least for the DC area, it's not watered down as it was last year. They have the teenage driving and M classes again. Although the M class seems to be watered down from the M Car Control Clinic I took and the price reflects this as it's $250 this year versus $750. It also seems it's only for a couple of hours versus all day for the M Car Control Clinic.

Just got this email as well, although a bit disappointed that its with the 2GC this year. Also it seems they changed the age to do street drives to 25 years old. I took my son last year (18) and he got to drive an M240i for street drives and was pretty excited for this year's event since he enjoyed the test drive more than autocross last year.

The M Control Clinic is being done with XMs. What a waste. SUVs are not my main interest in an M automobile and surely don’t handle as well as M cars.

Do you get a $1000 voucher when you attend this event like every year?

Looks like coronavirus is impacting UDE this year...I had registered for the DC event in April, and just got an email that it is being postponed

Same here. Got the same email. Went back online and was able to put my info in to get notification on when they figure out the dates of the reschedule.

Side topic. I checked with California Superbike School about the track event in May at VIR. Was told it's still a go. It'll be my first time on the new 2020 S1000RR. From CSS' Facebook page, the student bikes are all M package equipped. Should be interesting.

Post some pics! A few years ago, I learned that CSS used s1000rrs for the instruction which surprised me because I thought that like many liter bikes, s1000rr is a firebreathing monster and may not be good for anyone but the experts on the track

Here is a pic of me at VIR two or three years ago:



I thought the same thing as you because I have been going to CSS for years when they were running ZX-6Rs. After a few sessions out, I got comfortable with the RR and have never had an incident. Granted I ran in Rain mode up till about 3 or 4 years ago. Now after about 1 or 2 sessions on track, I jump into Sport mode.

The RR has impressed me so much I'm seriously contemplating trading in my 2009 Ducati 848 with a full Ohlins suspension to get into an RR. For some reason, I just can't get myself to let go of my 2004 ZX-10R. Keith Code has said on a few occasions that the number of crashes has actually dropped since moving over to the RRs.
