It sounds like it is somewhat of a high speed run. What is the cop situation?

I won't slow you down with my 330CI but I will join (pending cop situation) in the spring after I pick up my M3
Cops have never been an issue. I would call it more of a spirited run. And if you are concerned, just hang out in the rear, and go with what your comfortable with (just know the route before hand so you don't get lost)

As far as cops go, the roads that I pick usually have such low amounts of traffic that cops don't bother sitting on them because nothing happens. Over all the runs put together, we have only come across one cop and he didn't pull anyone over. The exception is of course towns and highways which we are only in/on for a short period of time. During that time we don't really go over limit too much because its not worth it for those few miles.

We have another guy that comes with a 330 and he said he had to drive it at the limmit to keep pace with the new m3s. I think he has coilovers now though. So I think in the 330 you'll be having more fun because you'll be pushing harder so you gotta bring it!

I'm the other guy with the 330, you can keep up as long as you know your car, and more importantly both yours and its limits. I will promise you will have a blast with it keeping up. On a side note yes Darkstar I have upgraded to a very good H&R and Bilstein setup, along with alot of other stuff which makes quite the difference in handling in a very good way.

You can count me in for this event, I'll have to paypal you my donation on the 1st though...

Look forward to seeing you guys there

How long does this event take? And from where does it start? I'm a newbie to this, but it sounds pretty interesting. I've got a 2009 M3 sedan (6-spd), but I'm concerned about keeping up (I've never been to the track, but I've been to the BMW driving school once for a 6-series event) and concerned about getting a speeding ticket. How fast do people go?

It lasts a few hour, maybe 2-3 each way. Last time some people left after lunch and went straight home. Others stayed and drove back on the original roads.

Anyone with a decently quick car will have no problem keeping up. They are back roads so there really aren't any cops.
