Last Thursday, members of The CODE were treated to an exclusive day of fun in the sun with BMW’s hottest performance vehicles. The setting was the newly opened Thermal Club, a private race track in Palm Springs boasting 4.5 miles of track designed by the renowned Alan Wilson that will soon house their West Coast Performance Center. The day kicked off with guests trying their hand at BMW M6 Convertibles and Gran Coupe car control, followed by hot laps with professional drivers like Johan Schwartz, who set the Guiness World Record for the longest continuous “drift”—when drivers force their car to slide sideways through a turn—of 51 miles.

For our VIPs, it was a chance of a lifetime to drive with the best in the world, in the state of the art cars, with stunning scenery all around. If you’re not a member of The CODE yet, there’s still time to sign up for exclusive events like this one, and more—like discounts on sbe hotel stays, access to premier off-menu food and cocktail items at sbe restaurants, $30 dining credit on your birthday, and the chance to skip the line on Las Vegas Industry Nights at LiFE, Foxtail and The Sayers Club. Join us in the fast lane!
