had a number of safety tips for
everyday driving. I'll try to recap
them briefly here, since they may
save your bacon someday:
- Don't drive distracted. Put
the cell phone down.
- Learn to recognize understeer. If you turn the steering wheel
and the car doesn't respond, but
instead pushes and plows and
slides in the same direction as
before, then your front tires have
lost grip, resulting in understeer.
* To recover from understeer, slow down and straighten
the steering wheel until you can feel
the front tires regain grip.
- Learn to recognize oversteer.
If the tail of the car starts swinging
around and wants to swap places on
the road with the front of your car,
then you've lost grip in the rear,
resulting in oversteer.
* To recover from oversteer, countersteer! That is,

turn the steering wheel in the same
direction that the tail of your car is
sliding. If the tail is starting to
swing to the right, then countersteer
right. If the tail is starting to swing
to the left, then countersteer left.
* If
the oversteer began
because you lifted off the gas in a
corner, which moved the car's
momentum towards the front tires
and "lightened" (reduced the load)
on the rear, then gently squeeze the
gas so as to put more weight back
onto the rear tires and regain grip.
* If
the oversteer began
because you were too heavy on the
gas and broke the rear tires loose,
then ease off the gas.
- When recovering from understeer or oversteer, be smooth and
gentle with your inputs: steering,
throttle, brake. Abrupt inputs are
just going to upset the balance of
the car even more and make things
worse.

B A N Q U E T

Mike said that the single word
that sums up his experience is
"grateful". For an informative and
entertaining bio about Mike, see
https://carsyeah.com/ourportfolio/mike-renner/.
Did I mention that throughout
all this, the servers brought food,
then more food, and more food
again. This was ostensibly a 10course banquet, served family-style,
but I swear there may have been 20
courses, all of them delicious. I am
sure that no one left the event
hungry. I didn't eat again until the
next day.
The event culminated with a
number of door prizes. The Grand
Prize Giveaway was a free MSchool; the lucky winner was Mike
Kelly. Jim Lorimer from Dominion
Raceway gave away a couple of track
days at Dominion; the lucky winners
were Dieter Willkomm and SooLynn Van Kirk. Radial Tire donated

a gift certificate; the lucky winner
was Al Lepeau. Other prizes included jackets, mugs, t-shirts, Bluetooth
earphones and more.
Many thanks to our sponsors:
BMW Performance Center (Mike
Renner), Craftsman Auto Care (Matt
& Judy Curry), Radial Tire (Paul
Moorcones), BMW of Silver Spring
(Donnie Mitchell), Dominion
Raceway (Jim Lorimer), BMW of
Annapolis (Bob & Chrissy Hoffman),
and Bimmer Werks (Amr Alkhateeb &
Jan Habaqe). And many thanks to
our event volunteers, the lifeblood of
any organization: Billy Dixon, Alicia
Lindo, Alaina Mohanco, Steven Pera,
Soo-Lynn Van Kirk, Doug Verner,
Mindy Villaroman. Last but not least,
many thanks for the leadership of our
chapter officers: Paul Seto
(President), James Laws (Vice
President), John Walker (Treasurer)
and Robert Hopkins (Secretary).
