Was this with the CCA?
How are they about putting you in a C or B class based on running with the SD or LA Chapter's ranking? I've heard they will automatically put you in the D class regardless of what you run down South?

Great pics and it's one of those tracks where I just say, "some day..."
Thanks for the post and pics.

yep those are paddy's...they work fine but this is my first track event with the m3 so I have no reference to compare them with. Guess no complaints so that is good, over/understeer was in control too. It rained part of the time and they did well too as long as you were on line.

edit: they didnt get greasy like I heard the PS2 do

Jeff, looking good out there man!

It was great meeting you, I think we all collectively had a lot of fun.

Just wish I had another day to work on my lines.

I guess I can fire up Gran Turismo, but it just ain't the same.

Nice photos, I'm so jealous I couldn't make it. Hopefully later in the year or next year.

Your instructor looks like Gary. He was just down here at Autoclub Speedway last weekend and then did Monday with the Muscle Car guys.

I had the same impression with the Vred's not getting greasy... which happened to me at Willow with the PS2's.
