Road America Bumper Cam
This is a video of my first hot lap ever at Road America in a 2011 BMW M3. Each session starts with a standing start and is then three laps long. I have included only the first lap starting from the green flag. I wish I had more time or experience on the track as I certainly left some speed in the corners and braking zones. There is a premium placed on horse power (long straights) and brakes - after just three laps, I was seeing some brake fade and sponginess in the pedal on the last lap which provided a moment of pause. This was literally the last event of the 2012 One Lap of America with the exception of the dry skid pad, so bringing the car back in one piece was paramount.
