Most of the passing I've done there has been thanks to others' mistakes.
Lot's of places to make mistakes

It was a SCCA PDX event. I, too, was pleasantly surprised

You have good driving skills man!
Pretty sure the 328 was stock. It was pretty quick, but I let off (you could tell my tires stopped squealing and the engine was a lot quieter) as there's not a lot of passing zones so didn't want to get on his ass till I could make the pass Still... that's one quick eco-cruiser and am now looking forward more than ever to the new M.
