The history of motor racing in California runs deep. In fact, the Southern California area was once the heart of the country’s auto racing culture. In the early 1900s, speed-freaks raced their cars on dirt tracks, dry lakes, and city streets.
The area was also home to the Los Angeles Motordrome — the world’s first wooden racetrack. The track was built as a way to attract nearby beachgoers, and the first races were held here in 1910. Back then, you could expect to see helmetless racers fly around the one-mile circular track at speeds nearing 100 mph. It attracted some of the biggest racers in history, including Ralph DePalma, Barney Oldfield, and LA’s own “Terrible” Teddy Tetzlaff.
Sadly, the Motordrome closed due to a fire just three years after it opened. However, the area had acquired a taste for speed that simply wouldn’t go away.

Few things plague BMW owners like the dreaded “Transmission Error” message. Unfortunately, transmission issues are fairly common in BMWs. In addition to seeing this error, you may notice that your transmission is shifting erratically, slipping, or that it’s stuck in gear. If you have a BMW with iDrive, a transmission error code will cause your vehicle to go into SafeMode, which prevents your transmission from shifting at all.
This is certainly not something you can ignore! However, it’s also not always a major catastrophe. Here are a few of the most common BMW transmission problems and tips for troubleshooting them.
