Motorsport

Our BMW Drivers Club NSW prides itself in offering Motorsport opportunities for all its members.

As a Drivers Club we offer Driver Training and competitions in Motorkhana and Supersprint. All members are invited, actually encouraged to improve their driving skills and give their car a run on a race track at speeds that the car was designed to do but are not allowed on our public roads. Motorsport in a BMW is fun.

Driver Training and Introduction to Supersprint.

In 2019 we will run one Driver Training Day at Sydney Motorsport Park Amaroo (South Circuit) and one at Pheasant Wood (Marulan). Marulan (Pheasant Wood) was a small purpose-built driver training facility. It has been turned into a Car Race circuit with a longer and wider track layout. This circuit has been especially good for new drivers and is a great starting point for anyone who would like to get into our Supersprint events and with the new circuit is even better than ever. We start the day with a theory session then lots of laps by yourself or with an experienced coach. Try out your skills and your BMW on either of these two driver training days. 

MotorKhana Championship.

Motorkhana is a low cost form of motorsport which involves manoeuvring a car through tight courses (known as tests). Our championship is a three or four event series conducted on the smooth, wet and slippery surface of the Sydney Motorsport Park Skid Pan. The challenge is to drive the test in the shortest time and you are actually practicing car control in adverse conditions without any damage to your car. Great for new drivers but we should all improve our driving skills. For 2019 MotorKhana has been expanded to a five round championship with trophies.   Download MotorKhana rules

Supersprint Competition 

Supersprinting is timed motorsport – not door handle to door handle racing. We like to see all our members enjoying this entry level motorsport.  

To make an interesting and competitive Supersprint Competition our BMW cars have been divided into 9 classes plus 1 class for all non-BMWs. We then compete for points in the annual competition of 8 rounds to win trophies presented at our annual dinner. The competition rounds are conducted at Sydney Motorsport Park car race circuits, Pheasant Wood Marulan and Wakefield Park near Goulburn, Winton near Benalla in Victoria and as a special thrill, Sandown in Victoria at the BMW Clubs Australia Nationals at Easter.
