A night at the BMW performance center: Part 1

So I had the awesome oppurtunity to do two of my most favorite things at once last night. Take some awesome pictures, and drive some fast cars on roads with no speed limits. BMW and the American Cancer Society got together to come up with an event called Relay for Life. If you have heard about those all-night long events where people walk around a track to raise money and awareness for cancer, this is pretty similar, but with a big twist.

Being hosted at BMW's performance driving school, many driving events were setup. All the proceeds went to cancer. There were three events, an off-road course with X5's, a hot-lap in an 507hp M5, and match racing with the amazing twin turbo 335i's.  Needless to say I signed up for each one!

Needless to say this was one of the most fun nights of my life. I'll go into more details later about each event but let me just say that each one totally blew me away.

There were also tons of beautiful, rare, and expensive BMW's just laying around. Sounds like heaven for someone that loves photography and cars.

I found a row of wrecked cars in the back of the center. Proof that these car's are not invincible and that seat belts, roll cages, and helmets might actually save some lives out here.

It wasn't me....
