The Boston BMW Club will wrap up its schedule of events at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, New England’s largest sports and entertainment facility, this weekend by hosting a school for both novice and expert drivers.

The school is intended to improve driving skills and highlight the relationship between driver and machine. The BMW Club conducts its schools on race tracks so participants can learn how to control a vehicle at speeds not typically reached on public roads.

“The Magic Mile’s” 1.6-mile, 12-turn road course offers a technical challenge for students of all ages and skill levels.
