Thanks for posting. How'd they set this up?

Nice, though after seeing Derek's videos and this one I think I am swaying more to BSM. Decisions, decisions. Argh.

BSM FTW!

Looks good on the track and yeah it is not loud but the sound is not bad. I'm not familiar with this track but I hear it is amazing! I think we'll be seeing some VO action there in the next few days which I'm looking forward to.

The wet surface is too loud. 1M has to sound better than a 135i.

Couldn't resist to post this. (it's an M3, not 1M)

Check it on HD and full-screen, and understand why Spa-Francorchamps is considered "the most beautiful track in the world" by many F1 pilots.

Note that an M3, driven by professional pilot, takes +3 minutes to complete one lap on Spa-Francorchamps!
F1 car still takes 1m 50 sec.



And I'll be tracking my 1M there this summer. Yippee-ki-yay

These corners are called "Eau Rouge" and "Raidillon". After a long straight down, it's a short left followed by a long, right upward corner (which we see both in the vid), and then blind into the next left corner.

After some practice, I dared to enter this corner at 160 KM/h (100 M/h) with my stock 335i.
I noticed they guy in the M3 video does it at 180 KM/h. Now watch how slow those GTs are compared to F1.

Mind-bending !!

Nice video indeed.

He crosses the white line on pit exit though, you're not supposed to do that .

my best time in my 135i was 2.58s, and I'm not a professional pilot... The best I have on video is here:


I would hope to do better in my 1M next year.
