Teenagers and M3s don’t typically mix unless there are two things; adult supervision or some level of driver training. Because inevitably the teenager will want to find the limits of the M3. I know because I did just that in my parents E36 M3. And as much go-kart experience and driver training I had, I was still an idiot at times. I can’t imagine if I didn’t have the basic knowledge I had behind the wheel.
When and where the uneducated hit those limits and ultimately handle them can be the key for not just fun but survival. Case in point the video after the break where a video game educated teenager comes face to face with too much speed, sudden weight transfer and a bad line.
