Innovative automotive education at Louisa County High School | News

One of Louisa County High School’s main goals is to send students off into the world with real-world skills. Many students drive yet know nothing about car maintenance or what to do when there is a flat tire or loose bolt.

Junior Jacob Bundrick was at home one day playing a video game called “Car Mechanic Simulator,” when he was struck with an idea.

Watch the New BMW M4 Rip to 140 MPH in No Time

Automotive media is getting its hands on the new BMW M3 and M4, and while reviews—including ours—are coming a little later, we can at least enjoy clips of the car now. France’s Motorsport Magazine had its hands on an extremely yellow M4 Competition and an empty race track with a long straight. What happened next is fairly predictable.

The magazine ran the car up to 141 mph, and it really didn’t take long to get there. No surprise when the M4 Competition has 503 hp, and a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic gearbox. Motorsport uses launch control here, and the car automatically starts in second gear, seemingly to limit wheelspin.
