Track Time @ VIR -- w/ Pics

Big Fun at the PCA event last weekend at VIR. As always PCA know how to run a track weekend properly.

The M3 performed well, although I need more seat time to get the full effect. I managed to run 2.20s in the Black group -- which was about mid-pack. With time, this should be able to come down by a few seconds.

Interestingly, with the shorter tires on my track wheels, my speedo error was almost 10 mph at the high end -- 150 indicated was only actually 140 -- on gps review via Performance Box.

Hope to have the Dinan springs & the 4.10 rear end next time for a little more punch.:

Great pics.
Was on the track for the first time last night in Calgary.
Wow, what a humbling experience.
Can't wait to get back out there.
