Who said ownership of the BMW i3 must limited to city or highway driving only?

Peachtree Chapter of BMW CCA did not think so and for the first time ever BMW i3s participated in the annual Drive School event at Road Atlanta.

Over the weekend. i3 owners were able to learn how to handle their vehicles on the track and in a single 20-minute driving session up to 82% of the battery was used for pure fun and acceleration. Charging was a bit of an issue, but everyone brought their portable EVSEs (GE and Clipper Creek models) and with a bit of electric ingenuity the cars were able to charge between the runs.

On Sunday a touring lap was offered to those trying out the track for the first time and 5 i3s took the front stage. From the very first laps it was evident that the BMW i3 is a the Ultimate Electric Driving Machine! Acceleration and handling was amazing for the conditions provided and participants had a lot of fun.

Tons of data was collected and will be published soon but for now enjoy the this BMW i3 fun race!
