  • JJ Bately/East Penn/Deka Club Events

    As the dynamics and technology of the BMW automobile improve and enhance our driving experience the demands placed on the vehicle to perform must be improved, as well. One area that has been especially enhanced in the recent past has been the electrical system. Voltage and amperage have become a critical need in our requirements to keep the computer system running efficiently and effectively. Voltage signals travel the vehicle constantly and are used as a barometer by the computer system to run the vehicle at optimal performance. Any glitch or failure can create vehicle performance problems or complete failure to start. The automotive battery historically was the last item placed in the vehicle by automotive engineers as it was predominantly used to start the engine only. The battery is now a key element in the entire system and much of the system is built around the demand and limitations involved with what is available in the market place.

    One such battery manufacturer here in the United Sates has been on the forefront of research and technology in the battery industry. East Penn Manufacturing is proud to partner with BMW and others to create the best product for performance and durability. East Penn manufactures and currently provides OES service to the BMW dealership network here in the U.S.

    JJ Batley is a 24 year employee of East Penn spoke on the company and battery technologies. Both battery basics and a snapshot into some of the new technologies were addressed. At the end of JJ’s interesting discussion, he was kind enough to give the First Coast a quiz with prizes. Thanks again to JJ and East Penn – Deka Batteries for highlighting all the positives and negatives of the battery industry.

    Welcome to the First Coast Chapter BMW Car Club of America

    We would like to welcome you to our club. The First Coast Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America (BMW CCA) is one of four chapters of the BMW CCA in Florida. Our approximate geographical area covers all of North Central Florida. Current membership is over 300 members with the largest percentage being in the Jacksonville Metropolitan Area.

    The First Coast Chapter exists to further the collective interests of its members and enhance their enjoyment of BMW automobiles. The scope of chapter activities includes, but is not limited to, expanding knowledge pertinent to ownership, operation, repair, maintenance, and modification of BMW automobiles. Chapter activities include rallies, drives, technical sessions, schools, and social events. The chapter conducts several street safety schools each year. These schools provide basic car control skill training for our members and teen drivers, which we feel have saved many lives over the years. For more on past, current, and future events, see the Events section.

    The chapter got its start when three owners of BMW 2002s got together and started talking cars, BMWs specifically. They decided to form a club of like-minded individuals. A year or two later they took the original club to a new level and joined the BMW CCA. Since that time the club has gone through many cycles, both up and down. We are always looking for ways to assist our members and hold events that everyone can participate in.

    HISTORY of the BMW CCA

  • Board of Directors

    President 2013-2015 – David Levin – I am your President for the 2015 year. I became a member of the FCC after an internal transfer from Tom Bush Volkswagen to Tom Bush BMW Regency in 2005. When the BMW expansion in Orange Park was completed in November 2006, I became the Parts Manager for that store. Over the years of turning wrenches, writing service, administering extended warranty claims, factory representative and now BMW Parts Manager, I have met many people and started great friendships. That, I assure you, WILL continue. Be assured that I love what I do and I do what I love. My current mode of transportation is a 2001 BMW 330i which just hit the 120,000 mile mark. My lovely bride, Linda, drives a 2008 Mini Cooper S. Both of my daughters, Rebecca (2002 BMW 525it) and Naomi (2003 Mini Cooper) are graduates of the Safety School have been to chapter meetings and torment our past President Howard whenever they get the chance. All kidding aside, my family supports the chapter as do I. Please do not hesitate to contact me at my office or chapter email if you have question. Good or Bad, I am here for you as a member of the First Coast Chapter.  As your President, I am honored to be a part of the history and traditions of the First Coast Chapter. (CONTACT)

    Vice President 2013-2015 – Al MacKay  – As your new Vice President, I firmly believe that participation is a must. From coordinating events to volunteering to participating, it is my goal to try and get everyone involved. My ongoing affair with sports cars stretches back to when, as a 13 year old, I read a book, �The Red Car�, about a young boy and a 1953 TC MG. Then, at 14 my Dad and I completely rebuilt a 1931 Model A Roadster, which we still own. I was hooked for life! Over the years a wide ranging selection of cars has been in my garage: from Fiat and Alfa to Lotus and BMW. I was very active in auto crossing and rallying when I was stationed in Connecticut and used to flag SCCA events across New England. In 2009, I purchased a 2007 335i and joined the First Coast Chapter. I currently live in Gainesville, FL but try to attend all the Club events where ever they are. I look forward to working with everyone in the Club in order to make our Chapter one of the best around. (CONTACT)

    First Coast Event Planner 2015 – Will Rowe - I’m from Fredericksburg, VA and was with the NCC for about three years before I moved down to Jacksonville. My love for cars and BMW’s started with my father who still drives his first BMW (and the car I learned to drive on) a 1991 e34 525i w/ an e36 M3 engine. My first car was a ’95 Acura Integra that I worked on every chance I had with a teenagers paycheck. My current car is a 2005 BMW 330ci ZHP that still puts a smile on my face (and usually terror on my passengers’) every time I get behind the wheel. I’ve participated in three Street Survival courses, multiple autocross events, and been to a few track days back up north. I volunteered for this job because I wanted to help the First Coast Chapter grow, and be able to have as many events as possible for our community. Let me know if you have any ideas for changes and/or stuff to add. Would love some feedback! -Will

    Treasurer 2013 – 2015 – Matt Steffes - As your new chapter treasurer, I believe that transparency is of the upmost importance. And because of that, I have a confession to make: I do not drive a BMW. I know, I know. How could this happen? Well, I joined the club in October 2011 with my E39 M5. I was greeted by a diverse group Bimmer fans that extended an unforgettable warm welcome. Along with the monthly meetings, I had the opportunity to attend a Safety School, several Poker Runs and a number of other social gatherings. I am a financial advisor during the week and Performance Driver Education student during the weekend. I squeeze my passion for cars and driving in between my other hobbies like music and reef keeping (read: saltwater fish tanks with expensive rock). Since then, I have sold my beloved M5 and moved on to different things. But do not fret; the Germans and I will be together again. Anyone seen an E39 M5? I seem to have misplaced mine. (CONTACT)

    Communications 2014 – 2015 – Todd Perkins – I grew up in Ipswich, MA a town approx. 40 minutes NE of Boston. I attended the University of New Hampshire where I earned a BA in Economics. In 1992, after my Freshman year in college, I moved to Jacksonville Beach to live with my mother who currently resides in Fernandina Beach. After a brief stint living In south florida from 1996-1997, I have always lived at the beach. I was hired at Merrill Lynch in 1997. In 1999 I was offered a position as a Financial Advisor. I have been doing this ever since. In 2010, My Business Partner, Assistant and I left Merrill Lynch to go to work for UBS Financial Services (formerly Painwebber). I have been there since July 2010. I have a wife Adrian who is born and raised at the beach. We have 2 children: Hannah 13 and Erin 5. We enjoy traveling, cruising and spending time together. We are big sports fans. We have Jaguars season tickets and watch lots of baseball and football…I am a die hard Red Sox fan! My life revolves around family, work, sports and cars. I have always been a car “freak”. I currently own a 2003 e46 M3 as well as an Infiniti G35 Sport sedan as my daily. I enjoy cleaning them, wrenching on them and most importantly, driving them fast! Cars are my passion. I obsess over them and If I had the money, would own 10. (CONTACT)

    Communications (web/emails) 2015 – James Itabashi – I was born in Washington DC and lived there for 35 years before relocating to Jacksonville. I am married to a wonderful woman (Jenna) and we have 7 dogs that occupy a lot of our time. I currently work for ADP as a tier II/III software support analyst. I have always had a love of cars, my first car ever was a 1970 BMW 2002 which  soon became a small problem being a poor teenager. Fixing and repairing a BMW with my income became quite difficult so I learned to do the work myself. With my  father’s tools and a shop manual I learned how to fix my own cars which in the long run proved to become a problem too. I loved working on cars, not only fixing them but making them better and faster too, another “hobby” that did not go well with my income but I struggled through. I did take a 20 year break from cars and got into motorcycling. Since the early 90s I raced WERA and CCS, became a MSF safety instructor and was a control rider/race instructor/race director. As I got older and I realized that motorcycle racing was a young man’s sport, going around a curve at 100mph+ with my knee dragging thinking about how I have a mortgage to pay really took its toll on my competitiveness so I begrudgingly gave it up and got back into cars and BMWs. I found a 1992 E32 750iL that need some TLC and my passion for cars blossomed once again, not bad to resume my love affair with a V12. So here I am 6 BMWs later (2 in the stable with another on its way) and with a great group of First Coast Chapter BMWCCA nuts who have welcomed me in with open arms and I hope to repay the kindness by serving the best I can for everyone here, my garage is always open! I have some ideas that I would like to work on with the rest of the First Coast Chapter BMWCCA to improve and move forward into a fruitful future, I look forward to being part of this family.

    The First Coast Chapter Monthly Meetings

    On the second Tuesday of each month, First Coast Chapter holds its monthly meeting at different locations throughout Jacksonville. If you are a new member to the chapter or just moved to Jacksonville, I am personally inviting you to come to the meeting and introduce yourself to one of our board members. We will be actively partnering our newest members with our current enthusiasts.  Please don’t miss this opportunity!

    Come join fellow First Coast Chapter members for a bite to eat and an evening of fun and socializing! Our monthly meetings are really just “mini-meets”; informal gatherings of BMW enthusiasts.

    However, you must be able to do the following things to “fit in” with us:

    • • Partake in good food and refreshments
    • • Socialize about BMW’s
    • • Share your ideas about events
    • • Enjoy yourselves

    Not much more than that folks. Hopefully the requirements are not too restrictive for you!

    We will periodically change venues, so check the calendar of events to see exactly where we will be. We carefully select where to hold our meetings based on parking accommodations, quality of food and service, and location. We typically meet before the event in a designated parking area to hang out and check out everyone’s rides. (Weather permitting, of course!) Meetings are great opportunities to interact with other gearheads, track guys or girls, and hardcore marque enthusiasts.

The cookout features family fun and games as well as an informal show and shine of some unique BMWs. We may also throw in a &qout;Poker Run” for additional fun.

    Annual Dinner - The Annual dinner is where many of the club members come together to celebrate another very active year. At the dinner there are entertaining speakers, good food, and annual awards are presented, some of which are humorous and some of which are serious. We also have door prize drawing and a silent auction for charity. The dinner is usually held in January at a conveniently located restaurant or hotel and is the perfect winter break. This event is very popular that with some members attending for many years. We hope that we will see you at next year’s dinner.

    Auto Shows/Concours -We are lucky to have some world class Concours d’Elegance within easy driving distance. The largest is in Hilton Head, SC. Held yearly on the first Sunday of November this event showcases some of the world’s finest automobiles. With over 150 classic vehicles competing for the coveted title of Best of Show, the Concours offers that “wow factor”. We are also lucky to have the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in our backyard. This event is held early in March each year and has even more automobiles on display.

    For each of these events we get together to attend. We try to obtain discounts on lodging, if required, and tickets for our members. It is always great fun.

    Charity Events - First Coast Chapter has a long history of supporting small charities who need not only financial resources but hands on help in serving the community. Through active participation in these events club members come together and meet new folks with giving hearts while providing needed resources to these charities. By focusing on smaller charities the projects are more personal, bonds are formed with the charity and one can see the direct benefit of their efforts.

    Oktoberfest - Every year a different local chapter hosts the rest of the chapters for a week of fun. Key events include a very serious Concours in many different categories from the oldest to the newest BMW. Other events include a national autocross competition and high stakes (ok for ashtrays) club race. There is a serious road rally as well as a not so serious Gymkhana competition and fun tour of the local scenery. The evenings are full of fun gatherings and the week is capped with an awards dinner and raffle for some new BMWs.

    Just what are Driving Events?

    Driving events are just that, events designed around driving on the road or on the track with other BMW enthusiasts.

    Poker Runs - A poker run is an organized event where participants must visit five to seven checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run…

    Car Control Clinics - The purpose of a Car Control Clinic or Safety School is to enhance a driver’s awareness of the conditions around him and develop his ability to respond quickly and properly should those conditions threaten him…

    Autocross - Autocrosses are a competitive event where a cone track is setup in a big parking lot, track, or airfield. We put cars into classes based on a formula (considering weight, torque, modifications, and several other factors), and drivers compete against other cars within their class. Though there is an element of risk, hazards to participants and property are not expected to exceed those encountered in normal…

    Rallies - The term car rally covers numerous activities, from all-out speed contests like the World Rally Championship to “gimmick” rallies in which winners are determined by luck. Time-speed-distance (TSD) rallies, which require precise mathematical calculations…

    High Performance Driving Schools - The Chapter is looking towards hosting at least one High Performance Driving School each year. These are not competitive events but an opportunity to learn performance driving on the track. These are off road events where safety is the primary concern. Sessions are offered for the novice to the most experienced drivers. With this grouping you will be driving…

    Tours - FCC BMW CCA members gather several times a year for a “car” event that does not require helmets, racing gear, or even orange cones. Members and cars of every age, and entire families, enjoy our “tours”. The goal of a tour is to travel a pre-planned route that minimizes highway travel and maximizes the beauty and fun of back roads that are the heart of BMW. We always ensure that members’ hearts are satisfied with a stop for lunch where everyone can feast, relax, and talk BMW. Often, the tour includes visits to special local sites. Sometimes, the tour is a two day trip where we will stay overnight and spend the next day winding our way back home.

     

    Join us! Route instructions are thorough and easy to follow. These are family events and the more eyes you have in your car spotting, the more fun the trip.

    If you have your own special car trip or would like to lead a tour, please contact any member of the FCC BMW CCA board.

  • Poker Runs

    A poker run is an organized event where participants must visit five to seven checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. If the event has a time limit, the participants are not timed, winning is purely a matter of chance.

    Poker runs usually require a fee to enter and some for each additional hand; in our events a small part of the fee goes to the event’s charity recipient. If we are holding a “poker run” for charity, all of the funds go to the selected charity. Prizes, such as money or merchandise donated by commercial sponsors of the event, are awarded for the best hand. Sometimes we will award smaller awards for the “lowest hand.”

    Each checkpoint might offer food or entertainment, either covered by the entry fee or at additional cost. Each participant is responsible to maintain the integrity of their hand during the run. Hands are usually written down or marked with punched holes on a ticket, rather than assembled from actual cards given to the drivers. The only requirement is that drivers arrive at the final checkpoint by the time prizes are awarded, usually near the end of the day, typically at a party with food and refreshments. It might be required that participants collect all of the requisite number of cards, five or seven, or they might be allowed to miss checkpoints and use a hand with fewer cards, though the odds of a winning hand are much lower.

  • Car Control Clinics/Safety Schools

    Understanding Vehicle Dynamics

    Purpose: The purpose of a Car Control Clinic or Safety School is to enhance a driver’s awareness of the conditions around him and develop his ability to respond quickly and properly should those conditions threaten him.

    Target Audience: Primarily, we like to reach newly-licensed drivers to help them understand the seriousness of their responsibilities on the road toward other drivers and to their passengers (studies show teenage accident likelihood rises alarmingly with the addition of passengers to the new driver’s vehicle). One or both parent(s) should participate in the event so that the teen can discuss their new knowledge and skills with an adult who understands the experience they jointly shared.

    That being said, the school is also useful for everyone else. Join us if you don’t need the adrenaline rush from running against the clock in an autocross or have no need for the higher speeds offered at one of our on-track driving schools. Let us teach you how to effectively respond to potentially threatening highway situations. “Physics is physics” learn some basics at this school first, and then move on to the more aggressive venues.

    Knowledge Gaps & Misconceptions: Private and high school driver education classes teach the rules of the road, an understanding of road/traffic-control signs and some very basic driving skills. The teaching environment is controlled as much as possible to minimize distractions from the course of instruction. Students can easily develop a sense that simply applying the rules of the road will provide a shield to keep them safe. In fact, it’s mostly the other driver’s observance of the rules of the road that may provide the student with some security. Unfortunately, new drivers are generally not taught how to quickly recognize and appropriately respond when their environment is headed out of control. Logically, the skills needed to avoid disaster are best learned ahead of time, not when an automotive “oh, my gosh!” is imminent.

    The Car Control School is designed to teach all students that the act of driving a motor vehicle is a mentally intensive activity. Their car is not a sofa with wheels, to magically transport them to a destination. They must pay strict attention to their actions and those of the drivers around them. Through classroom and in-car instruction, students are taught how to be observant of their surroundings and their vehicle. They learn how and why a car will respond to their inputs to the steering wheel, gas pedal and brake pedal – the physics of car control. The school provides a way to prepare for the unexpected, and to practice accident avoidance skills.

    Goals: You will learn what the car sounds like and feels like as the limits of adhesion are exceeded. You will then learn what the car sounds like and feels like as the limits of adhesion are closely approached. Ultimately, you will learn to drive the car under control just within these limits of adhesion. Learn how to drive smoothly AND then learn how abrupt you can be with the car while still maintaining control.

    Teaching Method: The program begins with a general explanation of the day’s activities, safety issues, and how the in-car activities will be conducted. Classroom instruction will include a definition of terms to be used throughout the day, then two sections called “Getting ready for trouble” and “Reacting to trouble”. There will be a discussion of each in-car exercise so that you understand what the exercise is designed to teach and how best to perform it. Questions are encouraged. Teaching aids include overhead slides and exercise descriptions with drawings for clarification. Classroom work will be enhanced by driving the exercises with an in-car coach and practicing the concepts of car control.

    Driving Exercises: All exercise elements have been designed to allow you to physically experience the vehicle dynamics theory explained in the classroom. Using orange traffic cones, these elements are laid out on a track for you to negotiate. An experienced coach will ride with you to explain the exercise, offer corrections, praise accomplishment and answer questions immediately. With this real-time feedback, learning is enhanced. All of the coaches have years of experience in evaluating car control.

    The exercise elements are laid out with safety buffer zones around them to provide you a large margin of error, keeping you out of trouble. The exercise area is isolated to preclude access by other than school participants. The pavement in the skid pad exercise area is wet down to minimize tire adhesion. This condition allows you to experience the vehicle’s responses to driver inputs at much lower speeds than in the dry.

    Results: This program has been attended by drivers with less than a year’s experience and by drivers with over 40 years of experience. Comments on the schools’ critique sheets have praised the concept and the training. Teenagers actually have FUN attending an all-day physics lesson and leave the event with a more mature and responsible attitude toward their driving.

  • Slow Speeds = Great Fun

    Autocrosses are a competitive event where a cone track is setup in a big parking lot, track, or airfield. We put cars into classes based on a formula (considering weight, torque, modifications, and several other factors), and drivers compete against other cars within their class. Though there is an element of risk, hazards to participants and property are not expected to exceed those encountered in normal, legal highway driving. Due to the length of our courses we allow only one car on the course at any one time. Cars race against the clock, not side-by-side.

    We do not require previous high performance driver training or experience, but participation in a Car Control Clinic or similar training is highly recommended. First timers and inexperienced autocrossers will be assigned a driver coach to ensure they get the most out of their autocross experience. Our events are open to licensed drivers age 16 and up. Drivers under the age of 18 will be required to submit a signed and notarized minor waiver to participate.

    No special car preparation is needed, in fact, we highly recommend you bring the car you drive on a daily basis. Doing so will give you a greater appreciation for your car’s capabilities and improve your driving skills in the process. All cars are welcome and unlike our driving schools, stock convertibles are accepted – roll cages are not required. We do not allow SUV/SAV vehicles to participate however. If you would like to drive and do not own a car, you may share a car with a friend.

    Snell 2005 or 2010 certified helmets (M or SA) are now required for all FCC driving events. If your helmet is expired, or you don’t have one, you will need to acquire one prior to the event. Check the certification sticker inside your helmet liner to make sure it meets this requirement.

    Car classes are split into (up to) four run groups depending on registration count. Participants drive one session and work one session and have the other session(s) off. Every participant (except those 65 or older) is given a work assignment which may include: cone workers, trailer workers, start, finish, and grid positions, or driver coach.

    Setup for the events start around 7am and registration opens around 8am. Cars go through an on-site tech inspection and around 8:45am all attendees gather for the driver meeting where we review important safety information and details of how the day will progress. After the driver meeting, everyone has an opportunity to walk the course, and for those interested, they can join the course designer for a personal look at how to drive the course. Drivers assigned to the first run group grid up and around 9:45am we send the first car out on course. Lunch usually arrives around 11:30am and we break for about 45 minutes between run group one and two depending on how things are going. During the break, drivers are welcome to walk the course again.

    Generally, drivers will get 7-8 runs per event and all times and cone counts are logged in our computer system. Your first run is a practice run where the time does not count. Successive runs count and your fastest timed run is your fastest run of the day. Downing cones results in the addition of one second to your time for each cone hit – hitting cones is bad for your times! Often we have time available at the end of the day for fun runs where you may drive your own car or swap cars with friends… it’s a good opportunity to beat your buddy’s best time in his car!

    Autocross events are very social and we welcome all makes of cars, not just BMWs and MINI. Unlike some other car clubs, we don’t limit registrations from other marques. Everyone has an equal opportunity of getting in! You’re likely to see a sprinkling of vehicles from Porsche, Mazda, Honda, Lexus, even Aston Martin and Corvette! We usually limit the events to a set number of drivers, but depending on the venue, this limit can vary. Events fill up fast, so if you want to join us, don’t wait too long to register. Registration for each event will be displayed on the calendar.

  • Where the details count!

    Road rallies are driving events held on highways open to normal traffic, where the emphasis is not on outright speed but on accurate timekeeping and navigation and on vehicle reliability, often on difficult roads and over long distances. There are several types of road rallies testing accuracy, navigation or problem solving. Some common types are: Regularity rally or a Time-Speed-Distance rally (TSD) (testing the ability to stay on track and on time), others are the Monte-Carlo style rally (testing navigation and timing), and various Gimmick rally types (testing logic and observation).

    The typical regularity rally (TSD) may run for a few hours or even an entire day or days.

    At the start, competitors are usually briefed about the event and may be required to submit their cars for inspection. Each team is given a route schedule prior to departure. This schedule contains information that the navigator will use to try to keep to the specified route and it contains information about the designated speeds and times for each segment of the route.

    Once a team is prepared, they will usually start the rally at a specific time unique to them. Along the route, the team will encounter marshals. The position of the marshals is usually not known to the teams. The time at which the team arrives at each marshal is recorded and used in the scoring. In some cases the marshals are hidden from view. Teams may also encounter open sections where they are guaranteed not to encounter marshals and are not subject to any time penalties. There may be various other features along the route including points at which teams must wait for an "exact time of departure&qot;, points at which teams must record their own times, etc.

    Every regularity rally will have a deterministic route schedule. This means that the organizers can work out the exact times that should be recorded for each team at all the relevant points along the route. The difference between a team’s actual times and the correct times determine their penalties. (Lateness and earliness both attract penalties.) The team with the lowest number of penalties wins.

    Equipment It is usually possible to compete in a regularity rally using only a car and a stopwatch, but many regularity rally competitors use various devices in an attempt to reduce their total penalties. The rules of each rally determine which devices are permitted. Some common aids include:

    • • Odometer: Odometers can range from the odometer included on the dashboard of most cars to specially manufactured rally odometers.
    • • Speedometer: As with odometers, speedometers used by competitors range from those built into the vehicle to specially manufactured rally speedometers.
    • • Stopwatch: Accurate time is essential in regularity rallying.
    • • GPS: GPS units provide speed, distance and navigational data, but there is some debate as to their usefulness in regularity rallying.
    • • Computer: Computers ranging from custom-made units to laptops can be used in some regularity rallies.

    Worksheet The worksheet or logbook is a type of map encoded path to be driven. It lays out all the information about the distances, time and average speed that must be followed throughout the rally. It is through the sheet that the navigator will direct the driver. The rally worksheet may be divided into several sections that may be of the following types:

    • • Regularity Tracks: are the sections in which the competitors must maintain an average hourly, predetermined speed, expressed in mph. Averages are based on the type of road and the road surface for that particular section.
    • • Deslocation Tracks: are time exceptions used for driving through towns and construction on main roads, which because of their characteristics, do not allow competitors to maintain an average speed. In this manner a maximum time is specified to complete the exception, so competitors can navigate the exceptions safely.
    • • Neutral Tracks: are times exceptions allocated to the competitors for meals, taking pictures, or simply to rest during the event.

    If you thrive on challenge then give Rallying a chance!

  • High Performance Driving Schools

    The next step in driver education!

    Our goals are simple; share our knowledge of driving at a level not readily available to the masses. After drivers’ education in school, most of our learning comes only from our daily driving. Through the club events, drivers are given the ability to take their learning further than they ever thought possible, at facilities that provide a controlled environment. Improving real-world driving is our focus, and creating better drivers is the key.

    The schools are designed not as race driver training, but as an avenue to learn how to become better, safer drivers. Drivers learning the limits of their car and their driving abilities, in a safe and controlled environment are our schools purpose. We take great pride in creating a program that is valuable to all levels and types of drivers, from those that are interested in just learning more advanced driving skills to our members whose goals are to increase their skills.

    Our High-Performance Driving Schools are designed as a way for drivers to continue their skill building. The intent behind these events is to offer further driver-skills education, above and beyond those offered in our Car Control Clinics. These events are skill-building days to enhance the car control training. A drivers learning does not stop with the first school, but rather accumulates over time with each additional event attended. As with all our schools, these events are fully staffed with an ensemble of instructors available for our drivers all day – you cannot beat that! We are fortunate to have a consistent, dedicated group of instructors that donate their time all year so drivers can pick their favorites and learn from them all year.

    Drivers who have not driven Robeling Road Raceway should not miss this opportunity. Robeling Road Raceway is challenging and exciting to drive. The track offers driving variety, from elevation change, to hairpin turns, to a challenging chicane.

    To be eligible, drivers need to have attended our car control clinic or an equivalent program. Email the Activities Director if you have any questions on eligibility.

    Snell 2005 or 2010 certified helmets (M or SA) are now required for all FCC driving events. If your helmet is expired, or you don’t have one, you will need to acquire one prior to the event. Check the certification sticker inside your helmet liner to make sure it meets this requirement.

    We have great members who love BMWs and love their club. We look forward to having you out with us.

  • Spartanburg Landfill, South Carolina

     

    Ever since we started construction on our Spartanburg plant in 1993, our plan consisted of the efficient cogeneration of electricity and hot water. Specifically, our plan called for building a 9.5-mile pipeline from the Palmetto Landfill to our facility where we build the BMW Z4 and the BMW X5. The recycled methane gas that we get as a result of this pipeline not only provides energy for 50% of the plant’s total energy, but it also helps us reduce energy costs.

    While we’re proud of our energy savings at Spartanburg, we know they’re just part of the larger picture. BMW’s global production network has reduced CO2 emissions by 30% in the last 10 years, for example, and we continue making inroads in such important places as hydrogen technology.

    We believe in doing things differently at BMW, and we believe that includes committing to sustainable business practices. And, as an independent company, we have the power of putting our money where our mouth is in order to share our beliefs with the world.

  • 2014 DTM Season

    BMW Motorsport reveals driver/team line-up

    Munich (DE), 13th January 2014. Exactly 111 days before the first race of the year in Hockenheim (DE), BMW Motorsport has announced the driver/team line-up for the 2014 DTM season. Like last year, four teams and eight drivers will compete for BMW in the popular touring car series and have their sights set on winning races and titles with the new BMW M4 DTM.

    “In announcing exactly which drivers will be racing for which teams, we are taking another important step towards the start of the 2014 DTM season,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “I am confident this line-up is the ideal solution for BMW Motorsport and our DTM project.”

    BMW Team RBM, which finished runner-up in last season’s team competition with 148 points and therefore played a major role in BMW retaining the Manufacturers’ title, will compete with the same pair of drivers as last year: Augusto Farfus (BR), runner-up in the 2013 Drivers’ Championship, and Joey Hand (US) will be racing for Team Principal Bart Mampaey’s (BE) outfit again in 2014.

    Changes are afoot in the remaining three works teams. The two former DTM champions in the BMW Motorsport squad will pair up as team-mates. Martin Tomczyk (DE), the 2011 winner, switches to BMW Team Schnitzer. He will join Bruno Spengler (CA), who won the Drivers’ title for BMW in 2012 and will contest his third season for Charly Lamm’s (DE) team.

    Timo Glock (DE), winner of the final race of the 2013 DTM season, will be back behind the wheel for BMW Team MTEK. The man who made 91 appearances in Formula One will be joined by a new team-mate: António Félix da Costa’s (PT) first DTM season will be under the guidance of Team Principal Ernest Knoors (NL). Marco Wittmann (DE), DTM Rookie of the Year in 2013, switches to BMW Team RMG where he forms an extremely promising partnership with DTM newcomer Maxime Martin (BE).

    Marquardt added: “I think we have another very impressive looking line-up again in 2014. As far as the fans are concerned, I believe there is something there to suit everyone’s taste. BMW Team RMG undoubtedly failed to fulfil its potential last year. We are sure that Stefan Reinhold’s team will come back from the break reinvigorated and ready to get back to successful ways with Marco Wittmann and Maxime Martin. After a really successful first year in the DTM, Marco is definitely ready to take the next step. Augusto Farfus, Joey Hand and BMW Team RBM worked perfectly together in 2013. BMW Team MTEK and Timo Glock are extremely motivated for their second year in the DTM following the victory in Hockenheim – and they are very happy to welcome promising youngster António Félix da Costa on board. The combination of our two DTM champions, Bruno Spengler and Martin Tomczyk, with Charly Lamm’s team promises to be very successful. Like everyone else in the team, I cannot wait for the first race. We have an intense programme of preparations with the BMW M4 DTM to complete before then.”

    The 2014 DTM season begins at the Hockenheimring on 4th May. In keeping with tradition, the same circuit will host the final race of the year on 19th October. Between these two dates, the calendar features a further four races in Germany (Oschersleben, Norisring, Nürburgring, Lausitzring) and four races abroad (Budapest, Moscow, Spielberg, Guangzhou).

  • PHOTO_BMWrelease15-710x400    5th December 2014

    An outlook with tradi­tion: as it does every year, BMW Motor­sport once again used its Season Review in Maisach (DE), near Munich (DE), to present the corner­stones of its programme for the coming season. BMW Motor­sport Director Jens Marquardt intro­duced the plans for the DTM, the United SportsCar Cham­pi­onship (USCC) in North America, the Euro­pean Le Mans Series (ELMS), the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, the BMW Motor­sport Junior programme, and the promo­tion of priva­teer drivers and teams through the BMW Sports Trophy.

    We are already looking forward to the 2015 season, in which BMW Motor­sport will once again thrill fans around the world with another exten­sive programme,” said Marquardt. “In the DTMwe will once again field eight BMW M4 DTMs, with which we obvi­ously want to follow on from the great success we have enjoyed in recent years. Our driver line-up remains largely unchanged. Seven of our eight DTM drivers from last season will also be on track in the BMWM4 DTM in 2015. Joey Hand will go in search of new chal­lenges in 2015. We would like to thank him for the great commit­ment he has shown to BMW in recent years, and wish him all the best for the future.”

    BMW Team RLL will again run two BMW Z4 GTLMs in the USCC,” Marquardt continued. “We will also race with the BMW Z4 GTE in the Euro­pean Le Mans Series. We are confi­dent that we will also fare well and mix it with the front-runners in the ELMS with BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS. It goes without saying that we will again see the BMW Z4 GT3 in action at many big races and in count­less series. For example, we will obvi­ously return to the iconic Nürbur­gring 24 Hours, where we will once again compete with an outstanding squad of drivers in 2015. Further­more, Alex Zanardi will return to the track in the BMW Z4 GT3. We will once again be supporting our priva­teer drivers and teams around the world within the BMWSports Trophy. And our BMW Motor­sport Junior programme sees us continue BMW’s tradi­tion of promoting talented young­sters in 2015.”

    An overview of the BMW Motor­sport programme for the 2015 season:

    DTM: Consis­tency in the cockpit for year two with the BMW M4 DTM.

    BMW Motor­sport will again race with eight BMW M4 DTMs in the 2015 DTM season. The driver line-up is virtu­ally unchanged. Reigning DTM cham­pion Marco Wittmann (DE), Martin Tomczyk (DE), Maxime Martin (BE), Bruno Spen­gler (CA), Augusto Farfus (BR), Timo Glock (DE) and António Félix da Costa (PT) will again take on the tough oppo­si­tion in the DTM inBMW Motor­sport colours in 2015. An announce­ment will be made at a later date regarding who will occupy the eighth seat. 

    Motor­sport

    BMW Motorsport’s goal in the DTM is to add to what is already an impres­sive record. In 2014, Wittmann won the Drivers’ title in the Ice-Watch BMW M4 DTM, while BMW Team RMG topped the Team stand­ings after ten races. The award for the Rookie of the Year went to Martin. Since returning to the DTM in 2012, BMW has won six of a possible nine titles and 50 per cent of all races.

    USCC: Werner and Luhr bolster BMW Team RLL.

    In North America, the United SportsCar Cham­pi­onship (USCC) enters its second season in 2015. BMW Team RLL will once again fly the flag for BMW Motor­sport and BMW of North America. Team Prin­cipal Bobby Rahal’s (US) outfit, which scored four pole posi­tions in 2014, will run two new BMW Z4 GTLMs in the GT Le Mans class. Bill Auberlen (US) and John Edwards (US) will remain on board as drivers. BMW works driver Dirk Werner (DE), who raced in the Amer­ican Le Mans Series (ALMS) for BMW Motor­sport in 2011, returns to BMW TeamRLL. Lucas Luhr (DE), who knows North Amer­ican endurance racing as well as anyone, will also race for Rahal and his crew. The season gets underway with a genuine high­light on 24th/25th January: the Rolex 24 at Daytona (US). DTM drivers Spen­gler and Farfus will also be in action at this endurance classic, as will Jens Kling­mann (DE) and Graham Rahal (US).

    Euro­pean Le Mans Series: Priaulx to spear­head project.

    BMW will once again be repre­sented at the pinnacle of GT racing on the Euro­pean side of the Atlantic in 2015. New to the programme are starts in the Euro­pean Le Mans Series with theBMW Z4 GTE. Five races are sched­uled between May and October for BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS. One man has already been confirmed as one of the drivers for BMW’s outings in the ELMS: Andy Priaulx (GB), who was crowned World Touring Car Cham­pion with the brand on three occa­sions between 2005 and 2007 and spent last year racing in the United SportsCar Cham­pi­onship. As a world-class driver, he will spear­head the trio at the wheel of the BMW Z4 GTE.

    24h Nürbur­gring: Nord­schleife experts set sights on victory.

    In 2015, the BMW Z4 GT3 will return to chal­lenge for overall victory at the Nürbur­gring 24 Hours (DE), spear­heading a tradi­tion­ally huge BMW contin­gent of teams, drivers and car models. In the cockpit will be expe­ri­enced drivers, who are at home in the Green Hell, as well as some promising young­sters. Dirk Müller (DE), Jörg Müller (DE), Jens Kling­mann, Dominik Baumann (AT), Alexander Sims (GB), Claudia Hürtgen (DE), Dirk Adorf (DE) and junior Jesse Krohn will take on the chal­lenge of the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. They will be joined by drivers from BMW Motorsport’s DTM and USCC programmes, including Marco Wittmann, Martin Tomczyk, Augusto Farfus, Lucas Luhr and Dirk Werner.

    BMW Brand Ambas­sador: Zanardi ready for another season.

    Alessandro Zanardi (IT) was presented with a BMW Sports Trophy award for “Come­back of the Year” at the BMW Motor­sport Season Review. In 2015 the Italian will once again push himself to the limits and fly the flag for BMW Motor­sport in a BMW Z4 GT3 specially adapted to meet his unique require­ments. Zanardi’s race schedule will be announced at a later date. 

    BMW Motor­sport Junior programme: On the hunt for new talent.

    Following its successful debut since being realigned, the BMW Motor­sport Junior programme enters its second year in 2015. The names of the talented young­sters looking to follow in the foot­steps of Jesse Krohn (FI) will be announced at the start of the new season. Krohn proved to be the strongest driver in this year’s inau­gural class, which BMW Motor­sport prepared for a future career in GT racing with outings in the BMW M235i Racing and a sophis­ti­cated training and educa­tion plan. Krohn will take the next step in his career in 2015, when he will fly the BMW flag in GT racing.

  • DIY Detail Day

    Our first planned event of 2013 was the DIY Detail Day at Tom Bush BMW Orange Park. Over 20 vehicles attended and lots of dirty vehicles became super clean thanks to our sponsors. We had a representative from Top Coat who provided details regarding their product and how to use it effectively. We also had the the Detail Department from Tom Bush give a presentation on the commerical products they use in the shop. Both individuals brought plenty of sample products to use.

    There was plenty of discussion between the members who attended, on how they maintained their vehicles. There was also plenty of helping each other going on. While the members were cleaning their vehicles the representatives were walking among the vehicles answering member's questions and providing assistance. All in all a great experience and one the Chapter plans on holding again.

    We would like to thank Tom Bush BMW Orasnge Park, Top Coat, and Pro Reconditioning Products for the cleaning supplies, detail products, and assistance with the event.
