Was that an instructor or a buddy in the car?

I am by no means an expert, but I am surprised he wasn't trying to get you to go deeper into turns and nearer the cones before turning in and tracking out...I suffer from the same thing!

It would be interesting to read what experienced trackers have to say about your video in light of your recent thread about warping the rotors, and how you could drive differently to minimize this happening.

Thanks for posting...you'll be able to get your own back on me in about 2 weeks! LOL

i concur. didnt watch it all but you were in the middle of the track at turn in not all the way out and also not going very wide on exit so could have carried a lot more speed if you wanted to.

Looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing.
That gets me all giddy-up about my first upcoming track of the season. Winter is too long in the NW ;-)

Thanks for the cool vid.

Damn, another melted brake system with our cars.
When will BMW admit there's a signficant weakness with this car.

Nice Video !

Reminds me of the Performance Driving School.
Which event was this? Was this the Chin Motorsports event?
I am looking to participate at one of these events.
A few other locals are interested too.
