Taking your BMW to the track is something that we highly recommend everyone do at least once. Of course once you do it, you’ll want to hit the track again and again. Which is why we wanted to give a shout-out to an event in our backyard being put on by the BMWCCA & Autobahn Country Club so you know it’ll be first rate. Head over to the site to learn more and register or keep reading below.

>For over 30 years, the Windy City BMW Club has been providing both novice and advanced drivers alike with the high-performance driving skills they desire. Let our expert instructors help you safely take your car (BMW or not!) to the limit at beautiful Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL. This premier midwest racing facility features a 2.1 mile track with 15 turns and has quickly proven itself to be one of the most challenging road courses around.

>Classes are offered for the beginning novice to the most experienced drivers. Our grouping process allows you to drive on track with others of the same general skill level – providing a safe learning environment for all drivers. Each student receives personal in-car instruction with one of our expert drivers. Your instructor will work with you one-on-one to learn the best path (or line) to take on the track for your skill level, all while being a second set of eyes and ears in the car for you.

>As the school progresses, your instructor will help you interpret vehicle behaviors, refine your skills and build your confidence for the next group level. It isn’t necessarily about how fast you go at our driving schools, but how well you drive. The key to performance driving is smoothness. The smoother you drive, the more control you have, and the higher the speed you will ultimately be able to obtain!

>Our driving school participants receive at least 4 sessions on track per day. When you are not driving, you will attend classes reviewing both driving techniques and vehicle dynamics to help you become a safer, faster driver. And don’t worry, you will have time to check out all the cars, eat lunch and socialize with other participants.

>Still not sure? It’s free to come check out! So bring your friends or family and come experience what it is all about. With The Taste of Autobahn, you can sit in on a classroom session and catch a ride with an instructor to get a sense of what a Windy City BMW high-performance driving school is all about (pre-registration required for The Taste). You can also challenge your friends to a go-kart race on Autobahn’s other track (register/pay on site)!

>Autobahn Car Gathering

>For the first time, Windy City BMW will be allocating area at our Autobahn driving school for a car gathering. This gathering is the unofficial kickoff to a planned, inagural Driving School & Car Show in 2016. So come on out, enjoy the scenery and show off that car – it’s Spring!
