BMW Drivers Club NSW prides itself providing Motorsport opportunities for all its members.
As a Drivers Club we offer Driver Training and competitions in Motorkhana and Supersprint. All members are invited, actually encouraged to improve their driving skills and give their car a run on a race track at speeds that the car was designed to do but are not allowed on our public roads. Motorsport in a BMW is fun. We run all our competition motorsport events under a CAMS licence. Take a look at the CAMS Standard Regulations.
Driver Training and Introduction to Supersprint.
In 2019 we have run one Driver Training Day at Sydney Motorsport Park Amaroo (South Circuit) and the second one will be at Pheasant Wood (Marulan) in October.
The Amaroo day was a CAMS "Come and Try Day". Take a look at the CAMS Come and Try event policy. This was a very successful day with 48 drivers improving their driving under instruction from our club's experienced drivers.
Marulan was a small purpose-built driver training facility. In 2018 it has rebuilt and expanded into Pheasant Wood, a Car Race circuit with a longer and wider track layout. This circuit has been especially good for new drivers and is a great starting point for anyone who would like to get into our Supersprint events and with the new circuit is even better than ever. We start the day with a theory session then lots of laps by yourself or with an experienced coach. Try out your skills and your BMW on either of these two driver training days.
Motorkhana is a low cost form of motorsport which involves manoeuvring a car through tight courses (known as tests) conducted on the smooth, wet and slippery surface of the Sydney Motorsport Park Skid Pan. The challenge is to drive the test in the shortest time and you are actually practicing car control in adverse conditions without any damage to your car. Great for new drivers but we should all improve our driving skills. For 2019 MotorKhana has been expanded to a five round championship with trophies. Download MotorKhana rules
Supersprinting is timed motorsport – not door handle to door handle racing. We like to see all our members enjoying this entry level motorsport. Cars are on the track in speed groups so new drivers are not intimidated by faster drivers and the faster drivers are not held up by slower drivers. There is a place for everyone and BMWs and you will love a run on the race track.
To make an interesting and competitive Supersprint Competition our BMW cars have been divided into 9 classes plus 1 class for all non-BMWs. We then compete for points in the annual competition of 8 rounds to win trophies presented at our annual dinner. The competition rounds are conducted at Sydney Motorsport Park car race circuits, Pheasant Wood (Marulan), Wakefield Park near Goulburn, Winton near Benalla in Victoria and as a special thrill, Sandown in Victoria at the BMW Clubs Australia Nationals at Easter.
