The M Owners Club of Indonesia participated in an Indonesia-wide Performance Day European Sports Car II event last weekend, where BMW M cars gathered and ran with other M cars, Porsches, and Ferraris at the Sentul International Race Track. Check out the huge photo set inside.
The day started with BMWs, Porsches, Ferraris, and other exotics gathering at downtown Jakarta, in the parking lot of the formerly Hilton Hotel. The group then convoyed to the race track (Sentul International Track), having two X5 M cars as safety cars. Around 80 cars attended the event, ranging from BMW M, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, and Audi. The event featured 3 sessions – drag race, slalom/auto cross, and track runs (which was led by pace cars).
