President’s Article July 2019

Although I have owned 8 different BMW’s in the last 20 years, I have only purchased one new car during that time, a black 2001 330ci.  It was the first 330ci delivered at Dave Ostrem BMW in November of 2000. During that time, I owned a business and did not have the time to do a European Delivery, but I am certainly looking forward to doing one in the future. I have just completed another driving school, this year at Heartland Park in Topeka, I have attended a driving school at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg and will be attending my 8th Oktoberfest in South Carolina this fall. Although these are just a few of my past BMW CCA experiences, there are many more things I would like to do. I would like to have the time to attend six or seven driving schools each summer. I would like to attend more professional races in which BMW’s are running, such as IMSA/WeatherTech/Michelin Challenge series. I still have so many things on my “list” which I wish to accomplish with my BMW family; there is not space here to list each of them, which brings me to my point, what is on your “BMW bucket list?”

Do you want to become more involved in our club activities? Do you want to do your first or several driving schools? Do you want to attend your first or another Oktoberfest?  I am sure many of you have a “BMW bucket list.” Now that I have listed some of the things I would still like to accomplish with my BMW family, why don’t you write to us with your list. Our readers would like to hear from you about the inspiring and interesting things that our members do.

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!
