It's not every day you get an opportunity to jump behind the wheel of something like the BMW M6 GT3, a full racecar of the highest order but I headed over to Bilster Berg in Germany to join BMW Motorsport and do exactly that...
Following joining Team Walkenhorst and my friend, George Richardson, driving an M6 GT3 at the Nurburgring 24H the team invited me to join this private event in Germany and get to give it a go myself. Things got underway with a full set up and induction to the car, the gear, the briefing and ensuring all is set. From there I head out with works driver Lucas Luhr in the BMW M235i Racing for some warmup and sighting laps before switching over to the main beast.
What can I say, what a phenomenal thing to do and an insanely immersive experience to live. Obviously it takes more than two short stints on an unfamiliar track to properly push it but the level of control and feeling in the car is just outstanding. The only problem, I want to do more of this, I'm hooked!
