BMWs are generally known for perfecting a recipe that has proved to be extremely fun over the years. The Bavarians are mostly known for their front-engined, rear-drive small Coupe models, like the BMW M2, for example. What makes them so desirable is the balance they bring to the table along with a lively rear axle that will turn up your adrenaline levels to 100 if you know how to control it. That’s the most important thing about driving a BMW M car: knowing how to control it.
Therefore BMW noticed that their customers could use some help from time to time and they started a school for prospective owners that would teach them how to handle their newly bought cars. Over the years, the BMW Driving Experience changed and now anyone interested in learning how to drive a proper RWD car can do so, no matter what car waits at home. And who better to teach you how to drift than the BMW M driving instructors.
In the video below you get to see Stefan Landmann at work, telling and showing you exactly what you need to do in order to get the perfect drift started, controlled and eventually stopped in absolute safety. Race car driver, winner of the 24-hour Nürburgring and now instructor, Stefan seldom strays from the ideal line. As a class winner in 2011 at the 24-hour Nürburgring on the notorious Nordschleife, the hot-blooded race car driver conquered one of the most demanding racetracks in the world in a BMW M3 GT4.
If you’re not interested in the entire BMW Driving Experience, you can now book the BMW M Drift Experience which focuses solely on the art of drifting. At the BMW M Drift Experience, professional instructors show you how to master drifting, using a BMW M model, at the BMW Driving Academy in Maisach. However, if you can’t go to Germany, the video below should prove quite useful for those trying to learn on their own. Remember though, never try this on a public road!
