"Chasing a race-preped 911 and Viper in a BMW E92 M3"

My first event this year at TWS on worn NT01's and I managed break my previous lap record by more than a second and a half, 1:57:16. My previous time was 1:58:95 on worn RS3's back November. Camber was decreased to -2-4f/-1.8r mainly to achieve better tire wear.
