Driving instructors from BMW Performance Center will embark today (April 30th) on a 7 Day, 2,827 mile journey that will take them across the United States in the 2016 One Lap of America rally. The car they’ve picked for this epic land voyage is a BMW M2 M Performance.
The 2016 One Lap of America, starting at South Bend, Indiana, is not just a long drive with no excitement along the way. The vent will include everything from Time Trials, to Drag Racing, Skid pad Car Control, and maybe a fair few unsanctioned road racings.
