The folks over at Axis of Oversteer show us how the BMW 1M is driven on a race track. In a 2 minutes video, the new “baby-M” is being taken through a series of drifts at the Monticello race track.

If you ever had any doubt that this is a real M car, then the video below will clear that confusion. Our own Hugo Becker also shared with us his track impressions:

“The 1M on the track is addictive. It’s a combination of great sounds, great chassis, and a thoroughly well matched powerplant to the car. It’s shorter wheelbase makes it just that much more nimble than larger cars and all of that torque, available almost off idle this will make the 1M a killer on any track with a surfeit of slow speed corners. This thing is nasty quick, it just digs hard out of the corners. Go wide open throttle and you’ll get the additional torque from the overboost function for about five seconds, enough to propel you headlong into the next corner.”

Let’s have a look.

     Wow, that was lame.  The same two clips replayed about 5 times.  Great video?

    I’m not having enough fun in my life….some of this track play will do just fine. Looks like fuuuun!! The 1M seems to be very balanced and the fat flat torque curve gives you plenty of pull in any gear, and any corner.
