Year in Review: Favourite Moments of 2017Dec 31th, 2017
As the year draws to a close, we thought we would share some of our favourite moments that made 2017 so memorable for us at BMW Markham.
BMW Markham Joins Pfaff on The Track
On June 29th, BMW Markham joined Pfaff BMW for the very first time on the renowned 3.957-km (2.459-mi.) Grand Prix track at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. This high-speed circuit comprises 10 turns and several dramatic elevation changes that confront drivers with an exciting variety of challenges on every lap.
BMW Track Days offer customers the chance to experience what our cars are really made of. For this reason, one of our favourite moments of 2017 was the day we decided to join Pfaff in offering our customers unique track day experiences throughout the year! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for upcoming track days in 2018!
BMW True North: We Became Official Sponsors!
Earlier this year, we were thrilled to become an official sponsor of BMW True North. BMW True North is a non-profit organization that runs BMW-themed automotive events of all sorts: BBQ meets, special location meets, cruises, track meets, photo shoot events, and more!
We had a blast hosting a BMW True North VIP meet at our dealership in August- featuring BMW raffle prizes, great eats, car models, and live music. Stay tuned for more BMW True North events at BMW Markham as we are looking to host more events in 2018!
Evergreen Hospice’s Annual Gala Event: ‘A Night Down Under’
As long standing sponsors of Evergreen, we were thrilled to have been able to support their gala night once again in 2017! We managed to top our previous year’s success. Over $111,000 was raised in support of Evergreen Hospice’s care services. That’s something to celebrate!
The BMW i3 Wins The 2017 World Urban Car of the Year
Another notable moment of 2017 was April 12th. This was the day in which the BMW i3 received the 2017 World Urban Car award at the New York International Auto Show.
All of us at BMW Markham were delighted! The award highlights BMW Group’s commitment to sustainable mobility through BMW’s first all-electric vehicle made primarily of carbon fiber. The design brief for the BMW i3 was to create a Mega City Vehicle for the cities of the future- like Markham and the surrounding community that we serve. We look forward to working with the residents of our community to promote another year of sustainable driving in 2018!
Andre De Grasse Visits BMW Markham
Earlier this year, we were very pleased to meet Canada’s fastest man, Andre De Grasse! Thanks for always swinging by to visit us. We wish you continued success and congratulate you on all that you have achieved. See you in 2018!
A big ‘thank you’ to our amazing customers for another great year! Happy New Year from our family to yours.
