Apologies for shaky video. This is one of the cleaner laps in my 2010 E90 BMW M3 @ Tarheel Sports Car Club event at VIR North on April 6th - 7th 2013. Thanks to THSCC for an excellent event.

I was running in blue group. First time I had E9x on track. Knowing my Spec E30 friends run 1:47s, me running 1:51 in E90 is pretty sad. I have plenty of excuses ready
- Never tracked it before.
- Pilot Super Sport street tires
- No proper seats, which makes huge difference for me. My knee is sore from digging into the door.

Still was fun. Car is crazy fast. I just don't have the balls to push it much harder. I was rather timid on the throttle and did not run WOT on the start/finish straight most of the time. But I did run with DSC/MDM off and saved some nice slides over the weekend.
