I had one done yesterday by one of the member here that attends M Club events, so I am guessing yes.

Your brake pedal hasn't gone to the floor yet?

I just use the Driver's Edge or TWS PDS tech form as a guide. They have all of the same requirements and then some. You'll still need to bring the M Club tech of course.

Is air available for free to tweak tire pressures? If not, I have always wanted an excuse to install a kit from Kilby in my Dodge, so I can run air tools anywhere.

So then its compressor wars! I'll race you with ///M pump. First one to 50psi in all 4 corners wins! Mine will win because I'll put an ///M badge on it.

If anyone else wants to play, I've got a manual bike pump. I'll give you a 10psi head start.

Hello.

I'm interested in purchasing single-day HPDE track insurance for the 2nd of Feb.

By searching the forum, I've found three companies that do this, but all of them have a list of HPDE events from which to select. But we/this event isn't listed on any of their sites.

Suggestions? Should I write to them and ask for inclusion? Does anyone have experience on whether that will fall flat, or?

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

I have used ontrackinsurance.com for M Club Events. They'll need to talk with Phil to understand event format and may require you to have instructor with you.

I have a 9-event policy with BMW HPDE Insurance and yes, the ///M Club event is not listed.

Good news. The track has had some improvements. The bump exiting key hole isn't as big, the transition at T1 is better (still there) and they put distance markers on T1 and T3 braking zones for CCW...not sure if they get moved to CW zones.

If you haven't been to MSR for a couple of months, be warned. The track is getting very bumpy. It's getting pretty trashed in areas off the racing line. Probably need to soften those racecar suspensions up or make a Mon chiropractor appointment.

What direction did you last run.....CW or CCW? And what areas seem to be getting trashed?...........Phil
