Track Test Review Video – 2013 BMW X1 sDrive28i M Sport + 77 Action Photos

While I am on the naughty list in general – I cannot help but share this amazing video. Previously unpublished due to stern language – read too late – on the press car loan.

As many readers will know, the videos of me so far are only “okay.”  They desperately need editing and better production values — but I am only one man.

My best video so far was from the 2013 BMW X1 sDrive28i M Sport loaner from July 2013.

I was in such a panic after spending perhaps 100 hours editing this video. Videos are hard to shoot, let alone make entertaining.

Sad panda. But lesson learned, call first to say hi and perhaps obtain approval. This wasn’t the NARDO, just a little fun haunt near my Chicago base. Oh well… Must do better in future.

In retrospect, perhaps this is more of a road course than a track….

The final kicker after investing quite a bit of time and money on the road course outing?

170 professionally-shot action photos of the X1 M Sport in its natural habitat. So I repeat my deepest apologies to BMW that I include the video and Nikolaus Schleitwiler action photos here.

For the record, the X1is a dream on the track. =]
