BMW PC Instructor Hot Laps
I just came back from M Track Days at the BMW Performance Center West an the Thermal Club. This was the full-day session that features Bill Auberlen. More on that in a later post. But at the end of the day, the instructors take the students out for hot laps. These aren’t quick laps or the fastest laps. They want to shred tires for your enjoyment! This happens anytime you go to the Performance Center for a school.
In the video below, I sought out Instructor Emile Bouret (previously featured on our YouTube channel) for a lap in the F90 M5 Competition. He switched the car to 2WD mode (every nanny off) loaded up 2 more people and off we went. Emile was kind enough to let me sit in on 3 of the 4 hot laps (that’s why the front windshield mounted camera disappears after lap 2–we thought we were done!). The 4th lap was special. Bill Auberlen’s dad (a Sebring winner like his son!) was in the passenger seat of the M5 and we ended up chasing Lead Instructor Adam Seaman–driving a F87 M2 Competition.
