In my experience, the BMW brakes, which are great on the road, are not great on the track. They will heat up a fade faster then Porsche brakes for example. The advantage to a mulit-pot caliper is consistent pressure across the brake pad which lets the load/work spread more evenly across the disc. Irregular pressure on the pad can make 'hot spots' on the rotors and lead to premature brake fade.
