I'm sure the BMW 1 Series die hard fans will love this video. If you're ever in Europe picking up your car through the BMW European Delivery program, then going to Nurburgring Nordschleife for a day on the track is absolutely a must.

    Sounds good. Did you notice the M3 at 2:00? That thing was rolling HARD.

    It doesn’t look like he had any business being on a track much less the Nurburgring. He had one hand on the steering wheel! In the first 10 seconds of a High Performance driving school you learn to keep your hands at 9 and 3 except to shift. And, did you notice that the stereo is on? This guy has not been trained to drive on a track and is not taking it seriously.

    @M DKG: I agree with you, I thought the same about the one hand on the steering wheel

    Oh, I would not be all that worried about whether or not he had both hands on the wheel….for goodness sakes, he was driving what….no more than 35 to 45mph??? Gosh, I have seen a few videos of screaming laps around the Nordschleife where the drivers lapped it in under 8:30, or less…at speeds that looked to be SUBSTANTIALLY faster then what this person was doing….

    What bothered me more was that the driver started his lap low on fuel in the tank…hear the warning chime and his exclamation that he “was low on gas”??? I also agree that there should have been NO music playing to distract the driver…he also makes references to the tunes…

    Then again, I would not take my new $50,000-$100,000 BMW around the Nordschleife at Hans Stuck speeds…at least not on my first ever lap….maybe never
