Ok you guys, this is the first track day of 2012........don't be the one to say "I should have gone". There are only5 spots available as of this post. We are planning 3 run groups in order to reduce the traffic. This should also keep the driving experience together and the excitement level high...................Phil

Just a reminder to wear pants and closed-toe shoes at the race track. This applies to drivers and spectators. Thanks and see you tomorrow.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Does this count as pants...technically they were pants at one point...



Sorry, I couldn't help it...I'll go grow up now.

Since Richard didn't specify the length of the pants I think this qualifies.

Thanks to Richard and Phil for putting this event together! Thanks especially to Richard for loaning your helmet and organizing a ride with Franklin! And thanks to Franklin for tolerating my extra weight in your car, that thing is awesome and you're driving almost made me car sick (which is a compliment on the track!)

Great experience guys, next time I will be suiting up and driving with you!

Andrea thanks for being a great instructor along with the other M Club instructors. And to everyone that attended, thank you for supporting our efforts. There's a lot of behind the scenes work that go into making these events safe while allowing the drivers the freedom to enjoy their cars at the limits. You guys make it a pleasure to organize our track days. We will continue to organize track days as long as you guys are willing to drive and have fun. Again thanks to everyone and a special thanks to one of our sponsors, Metropolitan Collision.....Andy and his team always come through with support and goodies...........Phil
