What’s more exciting than one day of testing project cars at our official test track, the Florida International Rally & Motorsport Park? That’s right, two days of testing.

This Friday and Saturday, we’ll be gathering baseline data on our newest project car, a 2015 BMW 435i, as well as testing out recent refinements and modifications made to our V6-powered Miata and Mk7 VW GTI.

We’ll also have a special guest appearance of the Triple Threat Miata and tire tester extraordinaire Andy Hollis.

Stay tuned for more–including a fresh set of lap times to add to our Ultimate Guide to Track Car Lap Times.

BMW did BMW stuff. But not the bad BMW stuff. Just the mildly annoying BMW stuff. Package already shipped from Bimmerworld to solve everything.

Between the check engine lights, cars going onto trailers, etc., the day pretty much went as expected. 

You'll need to log in to post.
