The episode follows the testing of the BMW M Hybrid V8, initially in Europe and then in the USA.

Aspects that the drivers really enjoy in dry conditions are real challenges during testing in rain at Watkins Glen (USA).
Away from the racetrack, ‘MBEDDED’ #9 gets up close and personal with the four IMSA regular drivers Connor De Phillippi (USA), Philipp Eng (AUT), Augusto Farfus (BRA) and Nick Yelloly (GBR). The camera even captures some very emotional, personal moments, and reveals a side to the BMW M works drivers that they don’t show during standard race weekends. In addition to the IMSA drivers, René Rast (GER) also shares his impressions after his first outing in a BMW M Motorsport racecar.
