BMW Presents "Man and Machine" Ahead of 2012 Paralympics

BMW's UK Division (England)  has released a series of short documentaries ahead of the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games that are to be held in London this August.  The above clip profiles wheelchair racer David Weir.  In this clip, Weir talks about his relationship that he must have with his wheelchair.  He emphasizes his need to have a seamless connection that he must have with his wheelchair in order to deliver his ultimate performance.  The connection that David must have with this rather impressive machine that is his wheelchair is similar to what BMW engineers attempt to instill in BMW owners and their vehicles.  As you can see in the clip, you can see the rather extensive and near-fanatical lengths that Weir and his wheelchair undertake in order to be the fastest wheelchair racer in the world.  Enjoy!
