Cool weather and colorful leaves mean that fall in New England has finally arrived, but it also means there are only a few weeks left of on-track activity at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  This weekend, the Boston BMW Club and Stevens Advanced Driving School rev up their engines at “The Magic Mile.”

The White Mountain Chapter of Boston’s BMW Club will kick start its weekend today through Sunday with the End of Summer Driving School.  Perfect for all drivers, the driving programs offer students the chance to learn all about how their car performs in real life situations while in a safe, enclosed environment. 

On Saturday and Sunday, Stevens Advanced Driving School will host a unique driving program featuring effective emergency braking techniques; best hand and seating position for control; precision steering and car control; tire care, mirrors and blind spots; emergency lane changes and the dangers of tailgating. The emergency skills program begins at 9 a.m. each day.
