Thumbs up

Track was a BLAST!!!!!

here's a small pic of some of the action,

I was very surprised that on the straights, my Z4 (0-60 similar to new 330's) was able to hang with a roush mustang and turbo'd to hell S4. And it absolutely ate everything up in the corners (with the stock bridgestone runflats, same as a 330)

the guy in the mustang went off track twice in the same session, both times I was directly behind him.

we got 5 20 minute sessions with instructors available to ride along (I took one along for 4 of the 5), and they give you rides with instructors in their cars ( I rode in a FAST mini cooper S, stock car but incredible stilled driver)

Put on about 120 track miles, averaged 10.8 MPG
Thunderhill was so large, there were 4 places I hit 100, and max speed on the front straight was about 115.

anyone in the bay area should look into www.hookedondriving.com they put on a nice track event.

looks like an expensive new habit!

oh wow. Glad you had so much fun. Just by looking at those pics, I can already tell how fun it would. I can't wait to get involved in track session next summer.

And beautiful Z4 you got there. Any plan on taking 325 at the track?
