I’ve lost count of the number of times that I’ve spent an afternoon under the infield trees of Mid-Ohio. I spent the first 25 years of my life in Ohio, and through those years, the track always served as a staple destination for spring and summer weekends. My father first began attending races there in his youth and he passed the tradition on as I walked the course by his side at the age of 4.

It was in ’73 that BMW brought the 2002 Turbo to the market – but just one year prior, BMW unveiled the “Turbo Concept.” In many ways, it was an M1 predecessor, and is, to this day, still seen by most as the father to the mid-engined legend. Styling cues from the prototype made their way to the M1, the 8-series, and even the lesser-known Z1. However, under Paul Bracq-penned Turbo Concept’s skin is something far more relevant to our story.
