Last week, Bill Jacobs BMW of Naperville hosted two exclusive Autocross Event Days for guests to get behind the wheel and experience a day of driving unlike any other. Guests at the event were able to experience Autocross driving sessions guided by professional BMW driving instructors. The sessions were geared at developing greater driving skills and expertise.
These Ultimate Driving Experience sessions were split up into two days, one for the BMW 5 Series that took place Monday 7/28 and one for the BMW 2 Series on Wednesday 7/30. Attendees at both events learned about advanced driving theories and defensive driving techniques, and how these Ultimate Driving Machines are designed and built around performance. Drivers were first taken through a safety orientation with their professional BMW driving instructors, and then were split into teams to be timed in a relay-style Autocross race on a custom course at the Arlington Race Track.
“We enjoy hosting events like this for our customers because we want to show them that purchasing a BMW from Bill Jacobs is about so much more than the vehicle itself. There is a lifestyle behind the BMW brand, and a true passion for performance and driving that goes along with it. We want to provide the opportunity for our clientele to experience that, and have fun with it,” said Greg Joutras, General Manager at Bill Jacobs BMW.
Rafael Torres, one of the driving instructors on site at the event told drivers, “We’re going to be asking you things like, ‘eyes up’, ‘look left’, ‘look right’– that’s what we’re trying to do, is get you to look into the future so you can drive there. If you hear the tires squealing, that’s a happy car.”
Bill Jacobs BMW also had several new models on display at the Autocross event including the electric BMW i8. Alec, an attendee at Monday’s event was admiring the new BMW M4. “The BMW 3 Series coupe got replaced by the new 4 Series, and it’s the best thing that BMW has done. It’s great, all the cars are beautiful,” he said.
