i have the blue vert. will post tonight.

the best way to get pics from me is to introduce yourself prior to running and pointing out your car, so i can spot it at 100mph. that way i make sure to snap some. it is nothing to blast thru 1000 images on a day like that which becomes a nightmare to edit. i just don't have time. i would prefer to just give you the RAW images and let you edit them as you wish. i am not in it to make money selling images like some pro photographers. it is just a another high $$ hobby.

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

As everybody else I would like to thank Phil, Richard and all the instructors that helped making this day a great event. This was my second track day ever, first time CW at MSR.

Thanks for all the great HD pics, I am the Sparkling Graphite E92 M3 being chased by the S2000 in one of the pics and chasing the brand new M5 in the other.

Thought I would share the video of one of my laps and also a small section of another one where I also show why it is a good idea to let your tires warm up before speeding through the launch...

Yes, the launch going CW will eat your lunch everytime not taking it easy on the warm up lap!

That's why I like my inside line versus going over the launch in the middle...you get 13 more feet of track to save the car.

For whatever reason I started to use a wider line, not anymore...

Regardless of what I think of my new E92, this GT3 made my heart skip a beat. What a thing of beauty.

Looks like went into the launch a little hot also. Agree, definately need to make sure tires are warm before increasing speed.

+1 I enter the launch from middle of track and end up on right side after the launch.

Thanks JC for posting vid. It was fun running with you at both events. It was nice having my dream car (997 GT3) in front of you to make me go faster!

Ouch, that one stings a little but as you can see in the picture, I didn't have my instructor with me for that run. If I had Franklin in the car, I would have blown right by! Even without tires, exhaust, or a tune...

Sally wanted to wave you by, but Tai told her to put the hammer down in the straights.

Shorter tire is quicker out of the hole as well. She had 275/35-18 square.

So now I have a good excuse for not seeing you over there

Not a clue about the noise. I'm about to make a thread and ask around for advice. I can't seem to replicate that noise, it must be a function of the load it was under in that corner.

Yeah, she told me the same thing. My PS2s were really slowing me down out of the corners, I took a ride with Phil later in the day and could tell a huge difference in when he could apply power. If I put the hammer down that early I would have been another of those off road videos
