Take a Look At What a Superbike Champ Can Do on a 1935 BMW

What a Superbike Champ Can Do on a 1935 BMW?

Despite the drizzle this weekend, a handful of nutjobs who were willing to take these old motorbikes to their limit got in some good laps. Corser gives this decades-old BMW bike the ride of its life until it finally gives up the ghost. Corser rides with total abandon as he whips his ride through the hairpin and clips the apex using every bit of the track, nearly cutting the grass while dragging his knee.

By the time the 1935 BMW decided to stop running, Corser had set the fastest lap of the day by a margin of 0.5 seconds with his 1:37.369. That’s some unbelievable riding on an 80-year-old motorcycle. As the weekend progressed, the weather deteriorated. That didn’t change Corser’s riding style. He continued to push another running vintage BMW right to the limits.

Watch below to see a massive puddle end the race for Corser in a spectacular wipeout.


The New Class spawned two legends that cemented BMW's reputation. This is the first: one of the first turbocharged cars ever built, predating Saab and Porsche by at least a year. And BMW wanted you to know it, with huge flares and huge TURBO graphics on the front bumper, so drivers of lesser vehicles could get out of the way. Like all early turbos, its unrefined Triple-K unit laid on the boost like an on-off switch, and the car could turn on you, literally and figuratively.
