About the film
Explore the intimate progress of a grassroots effort that transforms a perfectly functional BMW E46 M3 street car, into a full-fledged competition racecar, for the US Touring Car Championship Series. Be a part of the journey with the Performance Technic team as they progress through the racing stages and meet adversity head on. Will they overcome the obstacles set before them, or will the pressure be too much to handle?
As we journey through the story of this racing campaign, we also take a glimpse into the foundation that started it all; from club events, to autocrossing, to back road drive days, to the building of friendships rooted with one thing in common… BMW.
From the co-creators
As the Director of this feature film, I’ve got the rare opportunity to combine two of my passions in life: Filmmaking and BMWs. For years I’ve wanted to combine both of these passions, but nothing ever fell into place… until now. As a longtime BMW owner and enthusiast, I’ve enjoyed my share of fun with these cars over the years, from Laguna Seca to the Nürburgring, to competitive autocrossing wins (BMWCCA, SCCA), to simple friendly enthusiast gatherings.Marco Solorio, Director & Executive Producer
With the help of some very talented individuals that share my passion, we have built a home for so many BMW enthusiasts like us. Every day I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a talented group of people. This film is our passion, our pride and our humility. We race because it is the hardest thing to do in the automotive world with insane demands and overwhelming glory.Joe Gaffey, Executive Producer
