Man you guys are the reason we work so hard to organize these events. I too had a blast today and my new track set up responded beautifully today. Thanks to our resident track expert (Richard) for the work. I'm already looking forward to our next event. Oh before I forget, I want to send a special thanks to our resident photographer Brian. He always captures the moments we like to "brag" about ....................Phil

You'll notice the bang is the curbing of the wheel. It took it like a champ though!

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

The car was fantastical! (It is a tiny bit heavier than a Honda CBR600RR, but just as much fun!)

Thanks to all of you that schedule/plan/run the event, and to the sponsors. Thanks, Jonathan, for the assist with learning the track.

Also: What's the URL/link to the "Your Next Ride" (is that correct?) for the cancer treatment organization?

Great pic's, Gerald! I should have mine up by Wednesday.

Phil and Richard, that was another great event - thank you!! Thanks, also, to all the sponsors that contributed, including Momentum BMW for the great food!

Jonathan, thanks for the ride-along! I never thought of touring that part of the course!

V, enjoyed getting the chance to meet you and seeing the ear-to-ear grin every time you got off the track! Appreciate you letting me tag along.

LOL! Can't wait to see your pics. Sorry about the ragged ride. Note to self: you can't out-drive beat up tires... Stock camber settings are woefully inadequate. Here's the pic after we came in...



MSR actually paid me $5 for the tasteful landscape work. Which, of course, I donated back to the track to help clean up the gravel made from a certain someone's GTR.

Big props to Richard and Phil for an outstanding event once again - and to all the sponsors. Momentum really went above and beyond.

I forgot to mention that the food was fantastic! And my favorite moment was watching Richard wince at the menacing sound of my brakes as I pulled up to the track entrance.

Looking forward to the next event!

What a great event this was, not as crowded as the driver's edge meets. Good to meet you all. I am looking forward to the next event.

Here's the helmet-cam video of that ride-along. Pictures will be up shortly, and maybe some other video too!

Hmmm. at 0:46, there appears to be a different track line than what Johnathan showed to me.... (Johnathan, you were holding-out on me, man.)

Anyhow, now you make me wonder if I should have kept my Mazda B3000 for MSRH.
