ALPINA RACE DAY Salzburgring 2015

On 18th of July the ALPINA Race Day took place for the 4th time on the Salzburgring, Austria.

Ultimate Driving Pleasure for ALPINA enthusiasts

Austria. ALPINA customers had the chance to drive their BMW ALPINA on the racetrack and the instructors helped them to find the racing line.

The event was traditionally started with a get-together at the Sheraton Hotel in Fuschlsee, where the participants were able to warm-up for the ALPINA race day with a lot of petrol-talks.

On Saturday the focus was on exploring the ideal line of the race track, in working on the personal driving style as well as on driving pleasure. In the morning the training started with a section training, where the instructors explained the difficulties of the track and gave some advice on the driving techniques. After that, guided laps were used to familiarize with the track and transfer the theory into practice. Later all participants had the possibility to drive free laps and train their driving abilities.

Like in the years before there was the possibility to test drive the newest automobiles from ALPINA like the BMW ALPINA B4 Bi-Turbo Coupé, the BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo Coupé, the BMW ALPINA D4 Bi-Turbo Convertible as well as the BMW ALPINA B6 Bi-Turbo EDITION 50 Coupé.

A special experience for the participants were the taxi rides with the championship winning BMW ALPINA B6 GT3 race car and the limited street dependence BMW ALPINA B3 GT3, where the ALPINA customers could taste a little pit of racing atmosphere.

At the end of the day we could see a lot of smiling faces and we can say that the ALPINA Race Day 2015 was a big success. We are looking forward to the next event and thank all the participants, the M-Drivers Club, the ALPINA Partner Autohaus Horn, the BMW Niederlassung Stuttgart and MICHELIN who made the ALPINA Race Day such a special event.
