Ok, here are some photos from Sat 03.10.2012.

Took'em quickly in the morning, so didn't get a chance to include Feroz's stunning Dakar Yellow E92, nor Ricky's buddy's wide body MW E92 that came later.

Look forward to tracking again with you and Young, hopefully in NorCal next time.

Here's the same close call incident, but from a cam on Fabian's Stohr F1000 following very close behind us.

Had a blast though I had handling issues all weekend. I couldn't seem to get the power down coming out of corners so I asked our resident hot shoe, wwjd15, to take it for a spin. He confirmed that that the car was too tail-happy. Too tail happy by Ricky standards...is that possible?!

He also diagnosed air in my brakes (my first time on Brembos so I assumed that that's how they normally felt) and a tendency for my car to pull to the left after the tires got good and hot. I'm very glad he caught these issues as I can now get them addressed before doing Laguna Seca next week.

In a day or two I'll post my impressions sitting shotgun as Ricky drove my car and also report on the first time I tried MDM at the track...and didn't like it.
You ran laguna yesterday? Nice I tried to buy that spot but was too late (good thing in the end as I warped my rotors).

How was it?

Nope, I'm doing LS next week. I've never particularly liked the track but it's an opportunity to meet up with a bunch of folks I used to know from the old days.

Ugh. It looks like it's going to be wet at Laguna. Laguna in the rain = no fun. Too many walls.

Buttonwillow was a blast, we also had one of our customer's VF620 M3s keeping company on the track, as well as the Z4M.

Can't wait until next time.
