BMW Gear Up For The Race To Dubai

The 2011 European Tour is well underway with 13 of at least 50 tournaments already played. BMW sponsorship is prominent in this tour that finishes in December for the first time. The Race to Dubai started on 9 December, 2010 at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa. It ends on 11 December 2011 at the Dubai World Championship.
BMW are sponsoring three of the events; the BMW Italian Open hosted at Royal Park, Turin, the BMW International Open hosted at Golfclub Munchen, Eichenried, Munich and the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship hosted at Wentworth for the 31st time from 26-29 May.

BMW customers in Dubai can already get a piece of the action before the tour descends on Jumeirah Golf Estates on December 8th, as the recently opened dealership has just completed an installation of a Sports Coach Platimum simulator at its impressive showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road.

The simulator, officially opened by Mr. Stathis, BMW's Middle East Managing Director, gives clients the opportunity to enjoy famous local tournament courses such as Emirates, Doha, Abu Dhabi and Royal, as well as other famous courses from around the world featured on the tour this year. Golfclub Munchen Eichenried which hosts the BMW International Open will also feature in the Sports Coach golf simulator course package soon.
