Autocrossing the M3! (photos/videos)

This was my second autox event and first one in the M3. It was an absolute blast! I thought it wouldn't be as fun as in my 135i, but I was so wrong. The car felt really great and the only thing I felt lacking was my own driving skill.

Here are a few photos taken by photogs at the event:









Here's my best run of the day (which wasn't very good):



And here's a slow-mo clip in the slalom portion that someone captured:



I really can't wait to go again next month. If you aren't tracking your car, you should at least be autocrossing it. Find your local BMWCCA chapter and start attending some driving events!

Nice. I took the Elise out to one yesterday. Your course was much longer than what we can typically setup.
Looks like a lot of BMWs there.

I'm holding out for the next BMWCCA. Once a month is good enough until I can get a dedicated set of wheels/tires for these.

Nice videos - looks like a ton of fun. Makes me want to check out a BMWCCA event and put those performance mods to work.

I'm impressed at how close you were to those cones through the slow-mo slalom.
