You'll have a great time Alpine, you really get to see what these cars can do.
If you get a chance to go for flying laps at the end with an instructor, try and jump in with Geoff Brabham, the guys nuts..lol but in a controlled way!

Dont forget the camera and video and post pics here.

We ended up in a sedan but there are coupes there as well. All the vehicles have the 18's on them. You get to pick if you want DCT or manual.
Even the 325's we were driving in the morning were pretty good too. But after lunch is when it gets exciting.

Congrats, mate. Wish I could do the equivalent of PI over here (locally). I do have a 'track 25 mins from the front door, though.

Enjoy!

Nice - which did you drive of the DCT/MT? I'm tempted to drive Manual.. but I'm buying DCT so....

Sooo looking forward to this... would be good to arrange a few of us if there are anyone who hasn't gone on the M School yet.

That sucks, another 4 months to wait!

I promise not to destroy all of the cars, even if I did .... I am sure they would have them repaired by December.

I'm excited!

Thanks for the video teasers

It was a great day out on the track. I drove a E90 M3 sedan in MDCT.
