evo track evening - Bedford Autodrome 11/05/2018

A report of the first in our 2018 evo Track Day series, in partnership with BMW

The chequered flag has dropped on the first evo track evening of 2018. You can relive all the action of our cracking opening event, held at Bedford Autodrome, through our Twitter feed and live gallery below. Once that’s sufficiently whetted your appetite, you can sign up for the next evo track evening, which will take place at Rockingham on 22 June.

Our debut evening of the season was made all the better by our trackday partner for this year, BMW, which showcased the new M3 CS to the evo community in attendance. A trio of M4s were also present for our guests to experience out on the South West configuration of Bedford Autodrome, with qualified instructors riding in the passenger seat.

All manner of performance models rubbed shoulders in the paddock, ranging from hot hatchbacks to supercars. Those drivers taking a break from the action, giving an opportunity for brakes to cool, roamed the pitlane eyeing the eclectic collection of cars.
