Bridge to gantry 7:22.6!!!!

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Not mine and not a standard car but I found this lap on bridge to gantry.

Wow it looks fast, not cool about the use of the horn but each to their own.

Great bit of driving. Hope you enjoy

Couple of cars at the first section held him up a bit, plus he had a 6MT. DCT and an open track and he would have been well into the teens!

P.S. Lap time needs to send me that front lip!

That guy is a phenomenal driver. Seriously, flashing high beams, honking the horn, working it all at 110%. Fun to watch great drivers do their thing. Thank you for sharing!

That is a very fast lap and some excellent piece of car control! The M2 is a hot pocket rocket alright

I think some of the gear changes were faster than the DCT

Just to clarify as many do wonder...
The use of the horn and the flasher has to do something called safety.
As you can see we've been pretty fast on that day compared to other cars.
It's definitely the best for both if faster traffic uses the flasher in time so
other drivers are informed that fast traffic is coming close.
The horn makes sense in tight situations - like most of them are on the Nordschleife
just to make sure that the other car knows that I am next to him.

And yes. The M2 is definitely more than a nice little baby M
And no - my M3 GT4 is not far sale
