Page Overview: BMW M Drift Training
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 Competition 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.

A former airport near Maisach, about 30 kilometres west of Munich, has been home to the Driving Academy since September 2012. The location, where military and subsequently civil aircraft took off in the past, is now home to one of the largest road-safety training sites in Southern Germany – the ultimate in driver training for passionate petrol heads over a total area of 130 hectares.

The official fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, electric power consumption and electric range figures are determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable. The range shown considers the different sizes of the selected wheels/tyres. With respect to this vehicle, for vehicle-related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2 emissions, the CO2 values may differ from the values stated here (depending on national legislation). Images show items of optional equipment. The values are based on the new WLTP test cycle and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure comparability between the vehicles.
