Driver Education at Wild Horse Pass East Track

by Paul Koreneff

It’s time for a track event, with the Arizona Porsche Club!

Come meet us at Wild Horse Pass East Track for a day of fun with fellow Roadrunner Chapter members and give your BMW some proper exercise!

If you haven’t experienced a track day before, you are really missing out! This is a safe, controlled, environment where you can learn how properly drive your BMW at high speeds. Some of the things that we will be teaching include car control, when to brake, turn, etc and how to handle the grin that comes from driving your BMW the way it was meant to be driven!

If this is your first visit to the track, then please sign-up for DE 1. Personal instructors are automatically assigned for DE 1 participants. DE 2 and DE 3 drivers can request one.

You must sign up for this event on the PCA’s page on MotorsportReg.com (use the green button below) and also please register with us at the top of this page so we can ensure a spot will be reserved for you.

NOTE: If you have, or are considering owning, your own helmet then please be aware that Snell 2010 helmets are no longer able to be used for these events. You must replace it with a Snell 2015 or Snell 2020 helmet. If you are considering purchasing a helmet, then we recommend going straight to a Snell 2020 since they are legal for an additional 5 years past the Snell 2015  and there is not much of a price difference. The Porsche club also has a few loaner helmets available on a first-come first-served basis, at the track.

Bring folding chairs, drinks (especially water!), sun block, and a hat. Family is welcome and there are usually plenty of people to socialize with. Be prepared for big fun!

Pazifik Eskapades 2021

by Paul Koreneff

Join us on our annual trip to the BMW Performance Center. Drive fast cars (theirs), display pretty cars (yours), relax at a 4-star hotel with special pricing, mingle with the National Board of Directors and Executive Officers, enjoy the restaurants in the Coachella Valley, visit unique sites and desert oddities, and reconnect with your BMW friends.

Pazifik Eskapades is a trip to the BMW Performance Center with a little bit more.  The location provides plenty of things to do besides driving BMWs for you, your family, and your friends.  We have a discounted rate at a four-star hotel so a family mini-vacation won’t break the bank.

The Performance Center Experience will provide you with several different models of BMWs cars, and a variety of exercises and track driving to appreciate those cars.  They pay for gas, tires, brakes, etc.; all the things that make tracking your own car expensive.  You’ll get to test drive brand new BMWs in situations you’ll never get if you just go to the dealer for a test drive.  You’ll also get a gourmet lunch after you are done driving, and a small memento of your day.

This is a perfect way to introduce your significant other and/or your friends, to the incredible world of BMWs and performance driving.  It’s all on closed circuits, there are lots of first-timers, and it’s certainly safer than speeding on the freeway or drifting on the cul-de-sac.

If your companions aren’t into driving, the Coachella Valley has an astonishing variety of things to do.  Let them drive you to the Performance Center (you can hitch a ride back) then take the car and go explore.  See the list at Eskapade.bmwcca.org for activity suggestions and links.  Most of these options are available on Friday and/or Sunday also.

Saturday evening, after the sun goes down, there will be a Car Show at Old Town La Quinta.  We’ll have live music, BMW only parking (other parking is available), and a plethora of restaurants in which to have dinner.  Plus you’ll have a chance to see all your BMW friends who you missed during the pandemic*.

* Because of the fluid conditions caused by COVID-19 and its variants, please bring a mask.  You may not need it, but bring it anyway.
