BMW Winter Driving Training
The German manufacturer announced today that starting January 2011 and well into March, it will take those interested to various locations and show them how winter driving is done. All the training will be done with BMW vehicles, of course, but not your everyday BMW vehicles.
The BMW Snow Drift Training course for instance uses 430 hp M3 models, deployed in Solden, to teach drivers how to drift on snow and ice. The BMW snow training on the other hand, uses the same location to show people how to drive on snow and ice by using BMW X3, BMW 5 Series and BMW M3.
The most interesting course of them all however remains the BMW Ice Fascination Training which takes place in Arjeplog, 60 km (37 miles) south of the Arctic Circle. For this course, BMW is supplying prototype vehicles to be driven by those taking part, thus hitting two birds with one stone: teach the people how to drive, while testing its own future vehicles in more or less controlled conditions.
