BMW Drivers Club NSW prides itself in 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.
In 2018 Marulan Driver Training Centre was rebuilt and expanded into Pheasant Wood, a Car Race circuit. It is especially good for new drivers and is a great starting point for anyone who would like to get into our Supersprint events. We start the day with a theory session then possibly walk the track then Follow the Leader laps and 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. At the begining of the day at our Supersprints we have a Driver Experience session. This is a “Follow the Leader Session” for those drivers who are not familiar with the track or those drivers who wish to learn and practice appropriate lines. There will be one leader for each group of 3 cars and the order of cars will change each lap on the main straight. Leaders may take inexperienced drivers in their cars during this session. All drivers and passengers will wear helmets and speed will be appropriate for the cars in the group to keep up and follow the leaders’ lines. The time for this practice session will depend on the number of new drivers and those wishing to improve their driving lines.
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 and Winton near Benalla in Victoria. In 2019 we also ran at Sandown in Melbourne at the BMW Clubs Australia Nationals at Easter.
