Tracking the BMW 1M at Laguna Seca – BMW BLOG
During the TrackMaster Racing event at the famous Laguna Seca Raceway, driver Rolf H. takes his 1M through some power laps and the unique and amazing corkscrew.
Here is a quick review of his power laps:
The 1M’s agility on the street translates to the track. Understeer only comes around when you’ve braked way too late. Throttle application needs to be judicious, as oversteer is a small throttle stab away. Whenever you want. Never felt the car was ‘dangerous’ or ‘nervous’. Overall a well behaved little beasty. As for the driver,.. well.,… Had massive fun, and am now trying to resist the mod-bug with renewed defense.
PSS tires – Pretty damned impressive for a street tire on track. Didn’t seem to get overly greasy at any point during the day, although the throttle did need a bit more sensitivity as the laps went on. Had to manage the stock pads/brakes well before the tires needed managing. Never had the car on PS2 on track.
