Also, the group always has some slow idiot in it slowing everyone down. It's not even fun for me anyway.
The S'well bottle was given out at the regular BMW Ultimate Drive autocross events. That event is FREE and open the public. Definitely do not do the M track day for the swag!

I think in 2017 it was like someone raided a M Performance swag closet and tried to get rid of junk.

I think I had a sweater in some awkward size like Small or something, notebook, bottle, bag, hat, etc.

Anyone know if they are doing an ultimate driver event again? I went around this time a year ago.

Probably a bot to sound human, then will ask for your money for parts that don't exist.

Yes, next M Track Days is Sept. 9 at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL. I have two (2) full day package slots available for the M Track Days program at Autobahn Country Club, for Monday, September 9. To my great disappointment, I have a work conflict which prevents me from attending, nor can my brother. Full-day registration at Joliet is sold out. BMW confirmed they will transfer registrations to new attendee(s); however, payment has to be handled between the parties and not through BMW. I'm transferring these slots at the same price that I paid ($995 each). PM if interested.

Additional M Track Day info and videos here

M Cars driven on Full-day: M2 Competition and M5 Competition are exclusive to full day event. Plus M4, M760i, M850i, M850i CV, X3M, and X4M.

Full-day, 8 hours package includes all half-day activities ó autocross, lead-follow and drag racing ó plus access to the M5 Competition and M2 Competition models for the lead-follow, and one-on-one time with BMW racing legend Bill Auberlen. Itís a full eight hours of piloting with whole fleet of M vehicles. FAQ here.

Ah I have 2 tickets to this and want to go badly but cannot make it anymore. So, if anyone is interested in buying 2 half-day tickets at the Monticello location next week on Saturday, September 28 (12:15pm-5:15pm) please shoot me a message. Asking $500 for the pair (2 for 1 deal)

Might get some bites if you provided others with a below market price you were selling them for.

(I am not interested, already going)

Curious, are any of you on here the guy who apparently went off track in the M5 at Monticello today (27th)?

I was there on the 25th am session and someone did the same thing.

Also won the AM session m2 timed event with a 15.51. No trophy cones or ultimate driver contest this year...just a shout out at lunch.

Nice, my best was 15.8, but was just out of the cone so it didn't count.

Also, technically a competitive disadvantage of it being my first activity.

My personal belief is the run group which ends on the autocross course should have the quickest times. Same reason why drivers do warm up laps.

Its for the car as well as the driver.

Here is a little video I compiled together of my road trip and action at M Track Days.
