This sh*t is FREE.99 dude! Haha ...it's a free event BMW NA is throwing to promote their ///M cars. All the slots have been filled for Thermal for some time now. I believe the sign up started a couple of months ago.

I'm going Monday for the afternoon sessions. Couple questions :

What cars did you drive? DCT? Manual?

Should I bring a camera/gopro?

Can I bring someone with me to watch?

Nice meeting you. The event was a blast.

You just have to sneak turning DSC off

Hope you enjoy the tune!

We drove M4 on autocross, M2 and M3 on race track, and M5, M6, X6M on dragstrip. All DCT.

Camera would be good idea, but you'll be in the car...if you had a spectator outside they could film you. I suppose you could bring a suction mount.

You can bring a spectator, they can even ride in the car if they sign waiver.
