Pass on the circle and go to Lime Rock and do the circuit. BMWs are meant for the twisties and not really for just trolling around in a circle. Top speed governer will kick in and we don't have that impressive of a top speed. Also, going at such high speeds for a prolonged period of time like on a circle will really tax the car's systems. Oil will go bad reeeeeeal quick.

But yeah, go to Lime Rock. I hear its amazing.

If you want to drive on a real road course, sign yourself up with the BMW Car Club of America. Most local chapters have driving schools at tracks.

Nearest road courses are:
Lime Rock Park
http://www.limerock.com

NHIS has a road couse grafted onto their roundy-round circuit
