BMW Ring Taxi

So good news. I went to the BMW Ring Taxi site today and saw that they have openings for rides on May 4th. Now all I have to do is get a ticket which goes on sale on Monday, April 7th at 1AM PDT. I'm pretty excited that I "might" be able to get ring taxi tickets....they go for 185 Euros...ouch.

For those of you who don't know what the Ring Taxi is, let me try to explain it to you. A professional driver takes you for a joy ride in a modified BMW M5 with a V10 507HP engine around the Nurburgring which consists 73 curves, 300 meters elevation and at a length of 21km in about 10 minutes. Click play twice in the video below to see a preview.
