You can always order drums of race gas and set up your own little pumping station in your garage. This is pretty expensive but will ultimately be less than buying it at the track (if that's where you get it)

I filled my M a couple times last week with 100 Octane gas while in Germany.

Kinda strange that it didn't cost much more than 95 Octane.

Keep in mind guys that the M3s rating of 414hp is with 93 octane...not the 91 octane piss water we get out here on the left coast. So for my M3 brothers here is a website that breaksdown by area of Cali you can get racing unleaded.
