CHRIS HARRIS VIDEO: BMW M3 DTM
If the McLaren 12C GT3 was a gentleman racer's car the M3 DTM is for the real pros, as Chris discovers
This was the most obsessively organised event of its type I've attended. The briefing seemed exhaustive, but the moment I was sitting in the car and the motor was fired, I really did understand why BMW Motorsport wanted to take very few risks with us hacks. Working hard on familiarisation before turning a wheel means you spend that first lap thinking about the lines and the way the car performs rather than peering at the demi-wheel and trying to recall if it's the green or the blue button that causes the motor to self-destruct.
So here's the vid of the DTM car. Enjoy.
