If I get out there I'll shoot for 130

Looks like a super fun track - Even though we can still go to the track I am really ready for it to warm up again!

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.

I guess i can see touching 115-120 with R comps and an E92...

have they finished the repaving.. ? I was there last year in spring and the bump at the Dam Turn was so abrupt it sent the car a lane sideways.. granted.. it's a race car with stiff springs but it was really bad. i di recall the bump on the front straight also. That track made ECR look as flat as Kansas.

You will be be able to hit 115 on the straight between 3-4 depending on driver with a E92 M3, I hit 110 in my E46 M3.

They have repaved a few sections, there was a bump between 3-4 that was repaved this summer.
You may be referring to turn 9 which is right after the damn turn that has a real bad bump that has sent upset my car numerous times, at this point it's the worst bump on the track for my car. All the others don't upset the car like that one does. It's because of that bump that I can't reproduce my quickest lap time.

It's next on their list of bumps to fix.

Hey guys! Count me in to the 3/24 MSRH event assuming a mini gp would be allowed?

And is this the thread to check for updates and changes to the events? Or an email distribution I could get on? Thanks, and while I'm still searching around, this looks like a good community. +1

I was looking to get the E36 out on track this month. I'll try to do the May event.
