The first part of 32 Hours 7 Minutes is pure documentary set-up to explain why we're here and the ride we're about to go on. Welles later connects with Roy and Maher who are both game to see if the record can be broken. With much recon work done and the M5 equipped with so much gadgetry that one would think that the Bimmer’s fuse box would melt, the trio set off, cross-country, from New York.
