Chris Harris gets a rare opportunity as a ‘civilian’ to drive the E92 M3 DTM race car.
BIMMERPOST member FormulaMMM shares his road trip journal from Michigan to Florida, with stops along the way in Savannah, PBIR, Miami, Cherohala, and the Tail of the Dragon.
Three M3 friends journey to the famed Tail of the Dragon, all the way from New York. Here is their journal:
M3Poster’s studentloan, nstanovic and ringmeister made the trip from New York to North Carolina to what has to be one of the best roads in America, US129 aka “Tail of the Dragon”. 313 corners in 11 miles has been on my mind for years and finally over the weekend we took our M3′s to challenge the myth of this road.

THE UK launch of the BMW i3 – call it the German take on the electric car – saw groups of journalists driving out to ex-F1 circuit Brands Hatch in a fleet of brand new i3s.
When we got there, we were unleashed on the track.
In an unexpected twist, BMW lined up professional instructors in a pair of V8-powered M3s, the idea being that we’d drag-race them from a standing start to 60mph, the classic Sweeney traffic-light test.
In the clip here, we opened up the windows of the i3 and filmed out of the driver window.
Apart from the wonderful theatre of the M3 V8, which howls gloriously, you can see that the i3 … CONTINUED
