NJBMWCCA Driver School at Summit Point - July 23-24

For those of you looking to exercise your M3, NJBMWCCA is holding its annual Driver School (and Club Race) at Summit Point on July 23 and 24.

Summit Point is a tremendous track with a long front straight and lots of elevation change. My personal favorite piece of racetrack is the downhill chute entering the carosel - its a real test of nerve and tremendously satisfying when you get it right.

I see there are already a few E9X M3s registered for the event, in addition to lots of older ones. There's even a Ferrari F430 (one of the few engines that sounds better than a S65).

The school is open to drivers of all skill levels, and Summit Point is a great track. It's a little over 4 hours from NYC, and much closer to Philly, Baltimore, and DC. For more information, go to www.njbmwcca.org.

Still some room left. If you've never been on this track, it's worth the trip, and the northern Shenandoah Valley scenery is beautiful!

I can't wait...it's going to be fun. I just made sure the A/C in the trailer works. Last year it was 110+ in the shade. Hopefully my E46 will be ready. If not, the E92 will most likely be making an appearance.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to make this one. My son and his wife are expecting their first child about that time and they live in Vermont. SPR is too far away in case we "get the call". I'm going to console myself by heading down to NJMP and watching Grand-Am.

Can't wait to hear that supercharger!

I got one time exception on the tint so that they can check it at the track.

You guys ready for the 100 degree heat?

^ BRDHNTR told me tonight it was 112 in the shade last year at SPR while he was fixing his brake line.

This event is always HOT!

See Everyone soon!

Indeed!! One helluva event! It was great meeting you, stevespools, BRDHNTR and kartracer... And I really really loved the track! Fast (great rhythm), technical with some nice elevation changes! In my top two for now, behind The Glen... But still need to hit VIR.

I was getting tired of pointing the Scud by though...



See you out there soon.

^ I was getting tired of pointing YOU by! Need to get tires that match the SC! Looking at AD08's this evening....

Great to meet you too! Perhaps see you at the Glen but certainly NJMP!

Be Safe!

MTROIS nice meeting you and keeping it clean out there. You should come down to VIR Aug 25-26 with Track Daze. I am looking at that date.

Chris thanks for that ride in that beautiful supercharger. That was the first Ferrari driver I've seen on the track that could drive it like he stole it.

How is Jerry's car?

^ Hey Todd, I believe Jerry's car is being parted out. Jerry is fine (Thank god). His Dad is having a BMW Garage Party this Tuesday. I'll see him then.

Yeah, Ed can really drive that Scuderia. It's nice to see him and Lisa.

Marc has me really thinking AD08's since with PS2's I was greasy everywhere....Marc, how are they holding up?

Glad to hear Jerry is fine. Is he going to replace it with something?

You should join me at VIR at the end of August for Track Daze event.

I am running NT05s and happy. I am thinking of trying RS3s next to see how they compare.

You need to get oversized wheels/tires so you have more rubber on the road to handle that supercharger. Apex wheels are a great wheel for the money.
