I was lucky enough to be in the paddock 30 mins before the race and watched from the pit suite, great day for BMW! Can't beat being up close and personal with those amazing machines.

Agreed! I was there too. Just posted a clip on YouTube:


The BMWs were some of the loudest cars, along with the Vettes and Vipers!

I knew BMW would win races with this aggressive package known as the Z4. I personally prefer the Z4 way more than an M3. Z4 is the future, low, wide, and aerodynamically more suitable to less drag. Anytime anyday Z4.

God bless BMW.

I am just amazed how BMW return to DTM and wins the championship. Of course I am also amazed by they've won an ALMS event in the second race. There is also a win in using BTCC 1 series and that's very cool too. Very impressive jobs.

I do not get the races in my region, and my friends and I are dying to download glimpses of the races.

I wish BMW can join Le Mans 24 hours and boot Audi off (I typed that out loud, didn't I )

Go BMW.

Looks like BMW is back! Such a great race for the team, even after overshooting the hairpin.

Amazing weekend. As many have stated, the sound of the Z4's is on par with the C6R's but not the CTS-V (I liken their sound to the creaking of the hinges at the Gates of Hell...absolutely Earth shattering). I shudder when I see kids without earplugs at this or any event.
