    Default Level 5 Motorsports.

    So the infamous Scott Tucker has been convicted on 14 counts of fraud and sentenced to 16 years in prison. His loan business was shady as fuck and generated $2B dollars. He actually has pretty close ties to CMP. His former team Level 5 Motorsports rented CMP for a couple of days and set the unofficial track record at 1:45ish I think. Basically he spent millions of dollars to build a club racer. This car would compete with Stohr, DSRs etc. Jeff and Colin Braun were the guys testing at CMP. There's even a dinner with racers segment where they talk about the whole ordeal.

    Lol. Unofficial as in it wasn't part of a sanctioned event.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Watched the episode of Dirty Money tonight on Nertflix about Scott. Pretty well done. Well worth the watch.
