There is always room for non-M cars. I will keep everyone posted.

you don't have to be a member... but the Roundel magazine is a GREAT all BMW magazine that comes once a month... keep your membership in force for a year and get $500 to $1000 off your next new BMW purchase.... and if you just buy parts for your current car... most dealers give a discount on parts.. at just $50.... i can only wonder why you haven't joined already? https://myaccount.bmwcca.org/PortalT...EmailCheck.cfm
use referral ID 119366 if you do decide to join..

I used to run a lot at Harris Hill. It's a very tight, technical track where these cars will get up to maybe 120-130mph at the most if I remember correctly. They experienced some management changes and I haven't been since around May of this year. Harris is great preparation for other, faster track b/c of how technical it is.

My Nitto NT-01s had very little life in them when this was shot, but you get the idea:

sounds like a fun year planned! I just spent a wet weekend in Cresson at 39 degrees! It was still awesome! I seem to be weather challenged there, in July it was 106 degrees.

120-130 at harris hill???? Rather doubt that. It's only 1.3 miles.

Yeah, there was also a Ford econobox van and a Nissan Titan (2WD) that were tooling around.

That Denali actually passed an NSX...couldn't stop laughing.

Oh, and think about it. While most are looking forward to their next track day next April when the cold and snow go away...we're still on the track here in TX!

You can definitely hit 120mph in an M3 with r-compounds going up the hill if you brake at the last possible moment.


You have to take 2 and 3 just right to keep you're speed up and dive into turn 4. Going this quickly into 4 will often screw up your approach into 5, but trust me, it can be done.

Of course, average speed at H2R is significantly slower then someplace like MSR. They've also repaved the track recently and taken out many of the bumps (including the 'bump of doom' at he start/finish) so it should be a bit faster. I probably misspoke about the '-130mph', especially when considering a heavy M3.
