Were you shooting from the start/finish bridge today? I saw someone up there during the first advanced session.

I had a blast! This was my first event (beginner here) and my instructors James and Jeremy were awesome! Also want to thank Paul for teaching me a few things that were very important. Thanks to all of the organizers (Phil and Richard) for an event well managed. Look forward to seeing all of ya soon!

Nice vid! I was in the beginner group too, but don't have any video

I do have some awful iPhone pics which I will post up later today.

Hopefully some of the guys got some good video and pics!

What a great day, and thanks to Richard and Phil for dialing up some fantastic weather

There was a guy shooting video, and I was shooting DSLR. I am not sure where you would get the videos. I think his name was Todd.

Chasing RedRacer5 around, first set in the day (Interm.)

After this set, I switched for the first time (on a track) to "M" mode... wow, what a difference that makes! Fr'instance, top speed on the back straight was around 111, 112 in DCT; went up to 120 mph using paddle shifters & M Dynamic Mode.

Thanks to all the organizers!

Thanks, Richard and James, for showing Kelsee around the track. She had a blast, and will definitely be back for more ///M Club HPDE's. Combined we used almost two tanks of gasoline, ha!

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

That was the first track event that I have ever been to where EVERYTHING was right on time. Great job!

Maybe it was me...but when Richard said "Beginner's Group" the first time over the PA, it sounded like "Penis Group"...maybe I just had penises on the brain, not sure. It happens once in awhile.

The one thing that drives me crazy is I finally got the sweet spot in T17-15, started really picking up speed between the launch and key hole entry, and stopped doing my crazy dive bomber line into the carousel that I do in my 330...then the days over. NEED 2 DAYS! NEED 2 DAYS! NEED 2 DAYS!

Nice photos, Scott! Thanks for taking the time behind the camera instead of behind the wheel.
