I'm a brand new BMW owner (coming from a car with under 100 hp for the last couple decades). So forgive my ignorance...

What kind of skills could I learn at the advanced driving school? I'm not really interested in track driving, and I have an X1 (not M sport). What I would really like to learn are the limits of the car/tires/driver (me) combo. But I'm a little concerned about rollovers in an SUV.

Can one come as a spectator to see what goes on?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the board!

Going as a spectator is a great time/idea. That was my intro to the club. It will give you a good idea of the club format, and experience. You will find people are very friendly there, and if you ask around, an instructor may be willing to take you out. You will need to sign a few waivers to enter the grounds, and a few more to go on the track. Loaner helmets are available for free.

Personally, I have only witnessed one SUV on the GP track, and it was an X5M, but the X1 should be fine for a beginner (although I am not an instructor). There are other members on this board, or if you have other questions, PM me and I can provide you with an email address.

It's a great track, great club, and an amazing way to learn the capabilities of your car. I believe the first weekend is the end of April...

Another option is the Street Survival School, end of May I think. It's intended to teach new drivers, but you would get to push the car a bit, in skid pad exercises...
