We drove 8 loops in seven different cars for a total of 113.6 dollars raised to help fight breast cancer.
- M3 Coupe
- X3 3.0i
- 650i Coupe
- Z4 3.0i
- 528xi Sedan
- Z4 3.0i
- 535xi Sport Wagon
There were a few surprises for us today. Two of the available cars actually had manual transmissions. One of the cars that had a manual transmission was the M3 Coupe. It was not on the reservation form, but once there they put you on a list (if you were over thirty, sorry Ian), and when your turn came…woohoo. The other stick shift was a Z4 3.0si, which we didn’t end up driving.There were no 1 Series or no X6 to drive (the signature car was an X6.) Both of these vehicles are supposed to join the fleet at the end of the month.
The biggest surprise was they held a survivor’s lap at 12:30 that lined up every car with a breast cancer survivor in it and was given a police escort around the course. Good for them, but they should have done it first thing in the morning, because it took a two hour chunk of time out of the middle of the day. Good thing we had the whole day off from work and didn’t do just an afternoon off or we would have only got in two laps.
Raw gallery is up here: BMW Ultimate Drive 2008. Captions will come later.
I’ll write more about the experience later this week too.
