Automotive Parts Suppliers Conference

Automotive Parts Suppliers Conference

Optional Activities

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2023 | 12:15-4:30 p.m.

BMW Driving Experience

The final cost per person will be about $400 once the final count of attendees taking part is determined. To reserve your spot, add it during registration. There is a $100 non-refundable deposit, and you will be invoiced the final cost closer to the conference.

Be introduced to professional driving instructors who will have set the course for four driving sessions:

  1. A performance drive which offers the opportunity to drive a high-performance BMW on the lapping course.
  2. A rat race with two cars on opposite sides of a wet oval track. Who gets back to the start/finish line first is the winner.
  3. X3/X5 off road over boulders. Sometimes on only two wheels, head through ponds, up and down steel hills and more.
  4. Timed laps where everyone is racing against the clock, and each other, for bragging rights!

In each exercise, everyone will be both a passenger and driver throughout the exercises. In addition, everyone is invited to go for a hot lap taxi ride with a professional driver—either as part of the driving events or to cap the day’s excitement. At the end of the driving program, the group will reconvene in the seminar room to receive driving recognition and perhaps a driving award.
