Last summer, Blipshift, purveyor of fine automotive apparel, ran a design contest: Better Off Zed, which called for the submission of BMW Z-car artwork for the ZSCCA car club. The top prize was an all day paid Car Control Clinic at the BMW Performance Center. Here is the design that won. Weirdly, I happen to know the guy who submitted it. His name is Markus and he also just so happens to be my dad. All in all, I was pretty excited about his victory, not only did this mean he was getting to go to the BMW Performance School, it meant I was minimally guaranteed shotgun on the road trip to get there and they have great parking in the school with good car park line marking and more. It wasn’t until about one month later that I learned Christmas was coming early, literally, and I was going to be able to attend the clinic with him.
