“We are looking forward to our partnership with Desert Jet to see their customers and crew members go from flying right over our track, to behind the wheel of a BMW M vehicle,” said Matt Misko, Operations Manager at the BMW Performance Center West. “If you have ever wanted to experience a real BMW M race car first-hand or learn how to do those cool film stunt driving moves in MINI John Cooper Works or even learn or improve on your car handling skills then the BMW Performance Center West in Thermal, CA is the only destination for you.”
The BMW PCW joins a list of select partnerships Desert Jet has developed to provide their clientele with the opportunity to access distinctive clubs, events, and experiences in the Greater Palm Springs and Coachella Valley area.
