Deep in the heart of Munich, a small building houses most of BMW's racing history, and all of it runs. It is normally off-limits to the public, but small groups of enthusiasts are occasionally allowed in. Like us.

I came across most of these shots yesterday while digging through an old laptop. They were taken on a trip to Munich in early 2006 and forgotten about soon after. The graininess and weird effects are courtesy of the ancient (1999?) Olympus digital point-and-shoot that I had at the time; it carried a relatively tiny memory card, and the images you see here are all the card would hold.

Some more recent pics here, some stunning pieces of history in there, shame it isn't open to the public.  :doh:

Ha. When I read the title the first thing I thought of was a huge warehouse with indoor race track and testing facilities. I guess similar to their banned z4 ad.
