Cool Tracking

As far as I'm concerned, anyone with an M3 is required to go for at least one track weekend, just to see what the car can do unleashed. Some handy links:

NASA (open to all car types, run excellent HPDEs (high performance driver's ed), very nice people

BMWCCA (Bimmer event, run excellent HPDEs (distinction being instructors at all levels)), very nice people (watch the calendar, they usually do only 2 track events a year). (Also, if you're into autocross, they run one of the best series of events in the area.) (Also, they do a Spring Drive where you can meet a lot of people with Bimmers and drive with caravans through the mountains.)

SCCA (variet of car types, racing emphasis, but "PDX" is their DE), very nice people (Their autocross is called "Solo".)

And then there are the open track days at HPR, mentioned above, which as I understand it is like a box of chocolates. dnvrdrvr has been a leader in getting folks out on these non-club days. (I'll be out there this year.)
