Congrats to Michael, and thanks for representing in your M3. Kudos to BMW NA for recognizing Michael's efforts in kicking Cadillac's ass!

Congrats to Michael. Funny after reading the posts, I'm thinking the same thing. I'll be curious to see how the new M5 stacks up vs. the CTS-V and a turbo panamera.

Congrats! very well deserved for all your efforts. I'm actually surprised a little by BMWNA stepping up the way they did. I haven't heard of that before. Way to go Michael. Enjoy that wheel!

This will do more for BMW than all the millions spent on advertising.

Good show, Michael and congratulations.

Not that it matters, but to all the fanboys of the other manufactures talking about how much track time I have in the M3. The CTSV challenge was my first time on a track in the M3.

Ignore those guys.

I considered Autoblog unbiased and even they laid down the story that most of us agree with. You won the challenge.

Gratz Dude that was AWESOME.

If GM was smart they would have made you do some track time in the CTSV to see how you could perform in their car.

That was really dumb of them because Im sure you could have put in some positive feedback on that beast as well.

Congrats from me as well. I've been loving the threads on other forums about this, though I don't post in them. Before this, I had no idea that a few days at Skip Barber made someone a professional race car driver.
