If you have ever dreamed of getting behind the wheel of the BMW M4 GT4, it’s your lucky day, as the BMW Performance Center West in Thermal, CA just added some new classes to their roster that allow you to get behind the wheel of this track monster.

The new courses allow BMW enthusiasts to experience the customer racing BMW M4 GT4 first-hand and receive one-on-one race driving instruction to begin their journey towards being a professional driver through their new SCCA-certified licensing school.

BMW M and M4 GT4 Experience – $2,795

A full-day program includes driving various BMW M cars and the M4 GT4 race car. Students start with a classroom session that reviews proper driving technique. After an overview of the car, they are outfitted with a racing suit and helmet. Then it’s time to experience this amazing machine on one of the Thermal Club’s world class racetracks. Students run guided laps behind a BMW instructor to experience the M4 GT4 at speeds up to 140 mph. This is the exact customer racecar offered by BMW Motorsport.

Based on the 2020 BMW M4 coupe, the M4 GT4 is built to compete in racing series around the world in the GT4 category. The 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder TwinPower turbocharged engine can produce more than 430 horsepower (depending on the Balance of Performance) and the rear wing, front splitter and Continental racing tires make this car stick like glue through the corners. In addition, the class includes:

Race License School: The Path to Professional – $2495

For those who desire more training after the Advanced M School or Two-Day M School, the BMW Performance Center now offers a SCCA-certified school to take the first steps to becoming a pro driver. Students can even add this one-day school to an Advanced M School or Two-Day M School session and get qualified all at once.

What will be learned:

  • Learn the colors. Green. Yellow. Red – No there aren’t any traffic lights on the track. But there are flags, and you’ll learn what each represents while you’re out there to maintain safety.
  • Passing. Don’t let off. – Start off with you in a BMW, behind your instructor in theirs. They will coach you through the art of passing under both braking and acceleration. Then, we’ll bring on a classmate and coach you both as you battle for first place.
  • Keep Rollin’. Practice race starts – In racing, how you start can impact how you finish, and we’ll show you how to get started right in a grid set up, as well as rolling starts. Learn how to navigate with other cars on track while setting up for that first turn.

All in all, this is a pretty cool offering, and I’m definitely eager to return to the school to get some seat time with the BMW M4 GT4 once the pandemic is over!
