Arrow Houston ///M Club Track Day: Saturday, Sept. 24 MSR Houston









Co-hosted by Houston M Club and M-World

Sponsored by Momentum BMW Southwest and State Farm agent Cedric Young

We will have two run groups. A and B. We will alternate every 30 minutes. Everyone will get 4x 30-min sessions.

A stands for Advanced. This is a group for drivers who have had at least 10 track day events under their belts. We will also have a few instructors in Advanced to help drivers in Basic.

B stands for Basic. This is a group for drivers who are relatively new to track days. Instructors will be available for "check-in" rides upon request. Full-time instructors will also be available at additional cost.

Each group will be capped at 20 cars. This is a number we ran during our July event. We will have corner workers to monitor the status of the track at all times.

Cost will be $170+tax. We need a minimum of 35 drivers.

Tentative Schedule:
12:15 Check in
12:50 Safety briefing
01:00 Track goes hot. Group A
01:30 Group B
05:00 Road course closes. Dinner sponsored by Momentum BMW Southwest.
05:30 BMW Car Meet/Karting

Your Response:
Please reply if you will be attending. Please also indicate if you would like a check-in ride with an instructor.

Full time instructor is required for those who have never driven on a race track before.

I might. I know quite a few M5 guys will be there so would love to meet everyone.

We typically have an event every two months so hope you can make it next time!

There is currently 6 of us from the Mboard going to the Nov event, if we have 10, we get a 10% discount. Just mention Mboard when you sign up. Please continue to post on the South Region board as all the Houston M5 members I know check this and we are always looking for meets and drives and track events.

Curious, since a dealer and an insurance agent are sponsoring the event, I suppose the event does not violate BMW or State Farm policy?

I don't believe so... otherwise they would not sponsor our event. Momentum BMW will be bringing some M cars and hopefully give some rides as well if time permits.
