What year was this added? My dealer says track use (even track days) voids warranty, but admits in hushed tones "how would we know unless you tell us?". However, it seems BMW has been building it for track use - lap timer, quickshifter, Dynamic Pro and now this! WTF.
I have checked with my dealer and track days do not void warranty.  I know one fellow who uses his RR exclusively on the track, buys a new one every three years to stay in the warranty window. His dealer gives him no problems, the bikes have never had street registrations. I was told there might be a problem if you race in sanctioned events though.

In my manual it says "Use Launch Control only on race tracks and pedestrian crossings".

Well it does now.

That video is hilarious.  I just saw the entire clip and I love the launch from drive thru window to drive thru. Priceless!
