Each year we run our club's Driver Training at the purpose-built Marulan Driver Training Centre. This track has recently been completely resurfaced and had extensive improvements. The day has two aims:
1. As a Driver Training Day for young drivers and those who would like to have their first go on a dedicated circuit in a safe and controlled environment.
2. As an Introduction to Supersprinting, for those members who want to get involved in club Supersprinting.
For everyone, we start the day off with a friendly welcome and group theory session with experienced BMW Club instructors. This is followed by a walk around the track to show you the safe way around the circuit. As we walk, our instructors will point out all of the braking, gear selection, turn-in point, corner apex, exit and how to line up for the next corner. We follow that with warm up sessions with cars grouped in equivalent speed groups, so that new drivers are not sharing the track with faster drivers. There will be experienced drivers on hand to act as coaches to instruct and guide you around the circuit. No requirement for a fire extinguisher or roll cage, and helmets can be rented on the day. This is a great opportunity for you and your BMW to have a go on the track, and there will be plenty of time for lots of laps!
"I just couldn't wait to get on the track! This was my second time on this track but first time in a manual car - I was so excited! As the day went on, I built my confidence and started to downshift around corners...I hope that the BMW club can do more of these days." - Jack Soghomonian, 14.
"To say I was excited to do my first driver training was an understatement...because I got to feel what it was like on a track and to go fast for the first time in my life (in a safe environment). Thank you to all the instructors who went with me during the day and taught me some new things, like how to take the proper line...and throughout the day I started getting faster." - Jordan McLachlan, 16.
