COTA is the Best Track Ever!

COTA was awesome. We had BBQ, the richest pecan pie ever, saw a totalled E92 M3, toter heaven, a beached M5, a super hot instructor from BMW, an M6 that failed to rev match, limp mode, a case of whiplash and one near heart attack, and robbed out of an autocross overall victory, and an awesome car rental.

Juan Pablo Montoya wasn't going to be around on the weekend, so the COTA officials thought it would be safe to park these outside.

LOL. In the afternoon, we got to take an M6 gran coupe out for a scenic drive. During the drive, I got caught at a red light, and got left by a couple of the lead cars. Since we were on a back road, I gunned it to catch up to the other cars. It's amazing how bloody fast the M6 is - completely effortless....

In any case, I caught up to the cars, which started to slowdown, so I went to downshift when all of a sudden the steering wheel started vibrating like mad, and something in the drivetrain started making a 'crunchy' sound. Scared the crap out of me, I thought I destroyed the clutch (I was fighting with the gearbox all day). Turns out it was just the car proximity sensor going off, telling me to slow down!

It's amazing that almost 10 years on, the 840 still looks like it just designed. I'm gonna start a petition to bring back the flip light!
