Featured Blog

At IND Distribution, we thrive on the passion and excitement that comes with high-performance cars and motorsport culture. This year, we had the incredible opportunity to attend the first MPACT Motorsport Festival at the amazing Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX. It was a weekend filled with adrenaline, showcasing an amazing variety of vehicles, and connecting with fellow automotive enthusiasts. Join us for a look at our experience!

The Journey Begins: Rollout from Chicago

Our adventure, of course, began at home in Chicago, IL, where we meticulously loaded vehicles onto our transporters. Our lineup for MPACT Austin included our stunning BRG G82 M4, the aggressive G87 M2 build, and the iconic duo of our F82 M4 in Ultraviolet and the Gelbgrün F87 M2. And for good measure, we "threw in" our charming little BMW Isetta. Each vehicle, a testament to our commitment to performance and quality, was carefully prepared for the journey to Austin.

Arrival and Setup at Circuit of the Americas

Upon arrival at Circuit of the Americas, our team wasted no time setting up our expansive garage area. The setup featured a comprehensive product display, showcasing the premium "Family of Brands" that IND is renowned for. Our vehicles, gleaming under the extremely warm Texas sun, drew immediate attention and admiration from attendees. It was a good thing we brought water and t-shirts to hand out to the crowd!

The Event: Exploring the Paddock and Track

MPACT Motorsport Festival is not just about the cars; it's about the entire experience. We took the time to explore the paddock and track area, capturing the vibrant atmosphere of the event. The paddock buzzed with activity as enthusiasts and professionals alike admired the variety of high-performance machines on display. From modern marvels to classic icons, the event had something for everyone.

Highlights of Our Display

Our booth quickly became a hub for festival-goers. The G82 M4 and G87 M2, with their cutting-edge design and performance enhancements, were crowd favorites with the G82 coming away with "Best Engine Bay" while the G87 won "Best BMW". The F82 M4 and F87 M2 were great to have on hand to showcase the evolution of BMW's M series, drawing comparisons and sparking conversations among enthusiasts. And, of course, the BMW Isetta, with its unique charm and historical significance, added a touch of nostalgia to our display.

Engaging with the Community

One of the most rewarding aspects of attending MPACT was the opportunity to engage with the automotive community. We met countless enthusiasts, each with their own stories and passion for cars. These interactions reinforced our commitment to delivering the highest quality products and services, as we heard firsthand how our work impacts the community.

A Weekend to Remember

The MPACT Motorsport Festival at Circuit of the Americas was more than just an event; it was a celebration of automotive excellence and community spirit. For us at IND, it was an opportunity to showcase our dedication to performance, quality, and innovation. As we packed up and prepared for the journey back to Chicago, we carried with us not just the memories of an incredible weekend, but the inspiration to continue pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of high-performance cars.

We look forward to many more events like MPACT, where we can share our passion, connect with fellow enthusiasts, and continue to set the standard for excellence in the automotive industry. Thank you to everyone who made the weekend unforgettable, and we can't wait to see you at the next event!
