Wanna Drive The All-New 2008 BMW M3 In Nurburgring? Then Read On…

Oh yes, this in no hoax; earlier today we received this e-mail from the product manager of the German-based creative agency Dorten: “In September 2007, BMW will invite a selected group of international participants for an exclusive test-drive of the new BMW M3 Coupé at the Nürburgring race track in Germany. The two day event is called „Countdown to BMW M3″ and will be the very first opportunity to experience the new BMW M3 Coupé, at the same time as the world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show is taking place”.

Don’t be ashamed if you’re getting the goose bumps, we did. Heck, it’s not like everyday someone invites you to drive an M3 on the “Ring” with all (?) expenses paid… According to the Bavarian car maker, the winning participants will be selected by BMW and will be notified until August 31st, 2007. The M3 Coupe driving event will take place on September 19-20th 2007, but you won’t actually drive the first day. That will happen on Day2. -Click “Read More…” below (teaser video included)

Any clauses? Well obviously, you can’t be working for BMW and you have to be at least 21-years-old and hold a valid license and passport. Closing date for applications is August 15th, 2007. Still have a few questions? We did and that’s why we sent an e-mail to the agency asking how many people would participate in the event and whether BMW would handle all travel expenses. We’ll inform you as soon as we get an answer.
