Page Overview: BMW M Drift Training



Sometimes it can be useful to be awkward and unpredictable. Swift but precise steering movements are vital for fast lane changes or evasive manoeuvres. At the BMW M Drift Training, professional instructors show you how to take those curves on the asphalt. It’s up to you: in a BMW M model, you will use the wide open spaces of the BMW Driving Academy in Maisach to take on some tricky tasks, experience the fascination of controlled drifts on a wet road surface and enjoy the fun of driving at the highest level. There will be plenty of action from the word go as you learn all about drifting. You will take the BMW M4 to its limits and feel the forces in action. Three things are guaranteed: you will steer your car around the curves, you will enjoy some typical BMW M driving fun - and you will want more M Power.
