Looks like fun. What were the results? And holy poor reaction time on the white car. They need to work on their safety guidelines for bystanders too.

Thanks for posting!

I never really understand people drag racing M3s. It's just so not what the car was designed for (high-revving, naturally aspirated engine that makes most of its power high in the revband; and great handling that gets wasted in a straight line). These guys would be much better served on the dragstrip, and have a much better time, with a Mustang, a Camaro, a Nova with a big block, even an AMG Mercedes. It's like entering a Honda S2000 in a tractor pull contest, or entering an Escalade in an autocross. It just doesn't make any sense.

I'm cranky.

I wonder what the people at BMW think about the swastika on the silver car's C pillar. Stay classy, Albania.

Post a video with 3:18 of absolutely nothing useful just to end with two cars getting smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller? I wish I could have typed a 4 minute post to get my time back from you but doubt you would have read it! Watch out, they ARE crazy people!

Thanks GUY, never going to get that time back!
