BMW Drivers Club Melbourne

The Drivers Championship

Here at the Ultimate Driving Club, Motorsport is one of our passions.  Each year we will hold a Drivers' Championship for those who wish to compete in sprints, hill climbs and motorkhanas, and Driver Training events, both on and off the track for all levels of expertise.  In addition, our members are also invited to attend sprint days with other clubs, such as the Alfa Romeo Owners Club Victoria (AROCA).

Motorsport events are for those who want to get out and have some fun in their own cars, without spending the big money to go racing.  However, if you do want to go racing, we can help you achieve that dream too!

You don't need any experience, all experience levels are welcome and we always have experienced drivers on hand to assist if you need it.
All of our events are run by a number of senior CAMS Officials, who are all members of our club.  We must stress that our Sprint events are NOT racing events, and under no circumstances is racing accepted. 

Things You Need

If you are planning to attend a circuit day, you will need the following:

  • You will require a helmet that is in good condition and meets Australian Standards, this includes motorbike helmets.  If you do not have a helmet and require some assistance, please let us know before attending the event.
  • A 1kg fire extinguisher.  This must be mounted within reach of the driver and have a metal strap over the extinguisher to secure it.  You can get an extinguisher from places such as Bunnings or Repco and they cost less than $100.
  • Two independent bonnet restraints (for bonnets that open from the front of the car).
  • Non-synthetic clothing that covers you from wrists to ankles i.e cotton, wool or denim.  T-shirts, shorts or leggings are not acceptable.  Closed in, flat shoes are a must.  Thongs, sandals, ballet flats or heels are not acceptable.
  • Your brakes and tyres must be in good condition, your oil and fluid levels topped up, no oil or coolant leaks and your car must be completely empty, this includes items in your boot and glove box.  Metal valve caps are also recommended, soft plastic valve caps are not acceptable.  Your car will be checked by scrutineers on the day before you are able to enter the track.
  • Ensure that you read the supplementary regulations prior to attending the event and print off all the necessary documents.
  • It is wise to prepare for all weather conditions (we are in Melbourne, notorious for 4 seasons in one day), so bring a jacket, sunscreen, a hat and plenty of water. 

If you're unsure about any of the above and need some guidance, phone us on (03) 5979 1599 prior to the event and we'll walk you through it.
