Nurburgring Run Vid



My buddy filmed my lap with his Go Pro, vehicle is a stock 135i DCT. Did a couple laps on gran tourismo and headed out. This is my 3rd lap in the 135i but first run for the day, no previous experience on a track. I know my skills are lacking but had a great time and the car is still in one piece.

Plant your hands at 9 and 3 and leave them there.

Good run and it looked like it was relatively empty, and still in one piece is always a great place to be......wish I had gone...

Got your 'ring sticker?

Going back on the 23rd if you are interested...

I would like to join you guys but I will be TDY in the states until next month, it was actually extremely packed I was just able to get on shortly after the track was opened due to the clearing of a couple wrecks. It was really a great time, I have a really small sticker on the bottom left corner of my rear windshield
