Yep, that was Zahir's car
He was actually very philosophical about it, and promptly got to work repairing it - I think it might even be completed!
Race the Base was a phenomenal event - fantastic cause for four very, very worthy charities, and the machinery out there was absolutely, fantasticially, drool-tastic!!!
My l'il ole M3 was weak sauce out there, haha - I think there were only three BMWs there - mine, an e46 sedan (heavily modified), and a tuned M5 - not sure if any of them made 300kph. I was only involved because some friends that own exotics from Regina invited me along - otherwise, I wouldn't have even known about it. What a phenomenal weekend! I felt like a fraud, haha, but it was cool to feel like a rock star for a weekend, which one certainly did!!
My aim will be to comfortably exceed 300kph this year
I just checked, Mike - my only recorded run (my first), was only 284kph
My second run (which was 12kph faster, according to the digital readout on the M3), did not register
They only used a standard-issue laser gun for the speed trap - something they will address at the 2012 event.
