BMW M Drive Day Gallery

A tale of two Ms: Motor magazine competition winners get behind the wheel of a vast range of BMW M cars at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The fast-fleet includes the likes of the M3, M4, M5, M6 and X6 M, with a 428i and M235i thrown in for good measure. The baby coupe may not be a full M car (M2 is coming) but is among our readers’ picks of the day for packing big entertainment into a compact size. X6 M also overcomes scepticism that SUVs can’t cope with a track attack.

Driver-training action incorporates braking, skidpan and (timed) motorkhana exercises, though our participants are most in their element lapping SMP behind BMW’s skilled instructors. Or sitting beside them for hot-laps – where the M3s spend more time sideways than straight-ways. All in the name of education, of course.
