Arrow GO LIKE SCHNELL: The Story of BMW Motorsport in the USA...

A really awesome mini docu on the start of BMW NA's racing. I thought the story on the ///M stripe colors and Texaco sponsorship was an interesting twist - I had not heard of before.

Thanks for sharing. A great video.

It's always good to remember your roots otherwise you might get lost

It's videos like this that make me realize how much I don't care for BMW these days. Pretty much dead to me.

Nice video. Thank you for sharing.

For those of you who want more you need to watch the movie "Adrenalin - The BMW Touring Car Story."

Agreed. BMW M history never gets old.

Though at the same time, if all you can do is talk about how much you've done yesterday, then you haven't done much today

Yup!

Actually... all three films from the Hahne brothers should be in everyone's DVD collection! And their film about Alex Zanardi is a keeper too.



Adrenalin
24 hours. One Team, One Target.
24 hours. So Close.


No Limits. Alex Zanardi

Maybe you didn't watch the video. It's about the past, not the present.

Current BMWs are boring, M is dead as far as I'm concerned. Mercedes AMG is making much more exciting vehicles.

Great vids! I love (to do) road racing... If not for that heritage I would not be shopping BMW for sure, though I associate BMW more with middle age real estate sales people than racing these days!
