BMW Private Track Day

Hi all. This is obviously not specific to his board, but this is my home board, so... Have any of you ever attended one if the BMW Private Track Days? My Service Manager got me invited. I get to drive some laps in the new M4, and then ride around with a pro for some hot laps. Then dinner and stuff. I'm excited about the idea, but I don't know if I should feel lucky? It a target of a sales pitch? What u reckon?

Worse case you buy an M4!

Sorry about the typos. I really shouldn't do this stuff in a rush on my phone.

Yeah, it does. My Service Manager built my Dinan 540 back in the late 90s. He knows my weakness for performance driving and wants me in a new M4, methinks!

My son and I did the June event at NH Motor Speedway. Different line up of cars. We autocrossed M5's and M6's for 2 hours, the spent 2 hours driving 6 and 7 Series MSports on the track, followed by hot laps with the instructors driving M6 GC's.

Awesome experience.
