Video-m3 Coming At Ya!

This is from my June trip to the ring. This one scared the Sh*t out of us.

I'm sorry I'm trying to upload but it's having problems. It's telling me "missing security token". Help Anybody?


I got it.

I think he scared the s**t out of himself as well at the end as he went passed!

He came close to the guard rail and fence. My GF grabbed on to me when he headed towards us. The sound of the fence shaking and tires screeching got me after he passed. All in a split second. Thankfully he had DSC on.

The test drivers have the greatest job. Getting paid to run the ring all day.

No he didn't. The wind force from the car rattled the fence. It got me when I saw the kidney grills pointed in my direction

That was a BMW test driver on a closed to the public Nurburgring. The manufacturers have the track during the day to test new cars. It then opens to the public in the afternoon. I also have on video 4 door Porsche, Aston Martin, Turbo or supercharged Corvette and what I was told to be the new NSX. I will post videos soon. I was having problems uploading because video is H.D. (Sony)

At that rate of speed? I always wondered how fast that guy was going. I was thinking at least 85 MPH

Yes, and at even higher speeds actually. When you have DSC on, it's almost impossible to loose control.

That is the very long straight part of the track! He was probably just checking out the tires, or keeping them sticky, maybe even messing around with the EDC. Who knows maybe he seen you and decide to just have a little fun. By the time you get to that part of the track those tires are so sticky by then anyway. Man I love that track!
I got sideways with DSC ON this past weekend by accident (chasing down a Porsche GT2). Downshifted to late, did it into the turn instead of right before the turn. I would have to say that the M3 does hold its own. I pushed it hard into that turn. DSC light was going off before the tires ever kicked out. Of course that light stays pretty much blinking most of the way around that track anyway. I never dropped a beat. The car made a lot of noise, (from the tires) put on a nice quick show for all the people standing by and was on it's way! It all happen so quick!

I think he did do it on purpose to have some fun. To watch us jump and run.
Yes I love it there too! Can't wait to go back.
