Anyone been to the Ultimate Driving Events?

I've been to both X5s, the X3, the '99/00 3 series, and then one for the new 3.0 engine. I can't remember any thers. Ive been to multiples of the same one since its so much fun and now they all blend together. In total over a dozen.

The last X5 one was kinda weak. They didnt let us push the cars like the previous times. It was more of a comparo with other vehicles in the class.

Im looking forward to a 1 series event. Maybe I can get more of these....

That's like trying to catch a fish at the trout hatchery. You're going against people who never did autox before... Remember the episode of Seinfeld when Kramer started taking karate, going against those little kids? Sorta-kinda like that... :wink:
