I just got an e-mail invitation to the BWM test drive days they are having at Invesco Field on May 6-9.

I am thinking a few hours of driving for fun has my name all over it.  So does anyone else want to go?  Should we plan a day and get a group together?

Looks like the only vehicle they'll have there is the X3.  Not as much fun as an M5.  :twisted:   It would still be fun to put the X3 thru it's paces and get some tips from their instructors.

What do you guys think about going on that Friday, perhaps in the afternoon or after work?

Friday PM is perfect for me.  I am off at noon, so what time is good for others?

Yeah, I've been to an auto-x.  I wasn't able to drive, but I did ride with ColoradoMark's son in the Mini and Van in his 8E Avant.  It's a lot of fun, but you never forget you're driving in a parking lot.  I don't think we ever got out of second, maybe third, gear.  Things come up very fast and there are usually many tight corners.  You're never on the gas or brakes longer than a few seconds at a time.  It's a lot of fun, but personally it's not something I could really get into unless I had something like a go cart.

I am doing Saturday night (330ci and 325 convertable) and Sunday morning (autocross thingie) for the BMW driving deal at Invesco. I couldn't get it all at the same time since I didn't want to take off of work to do it :P
