Anyone interested in getting an M3post group to go to VIR (M-advanced II)?

would be awesome to get a group of 4-6 of us to get together and enjoy october weather in Virginia and enjoy 2 days of hard core driving...

any serious interest in this?

I would do it if I wasn't going to Germany and the 'Ring two weeks later. Can't be gone that much time that close together.

I would do it next year possibly but I do know that the VIR dates are few.

You are better off coming up to VIR and running a BMW CCA event. Purchase track insurance and you will be fine if you are worried about your car.

The next session is Jul 31 - Aug 2 followed by 21 Oct - 23 Oct and 23 Oct - 25 Oct. I'm going to the July and second October sessions. They are currently full so no availability is shown on the web site.

If you send them an email they will put you on a waiting list and/or notify you next year when the sessions are scheduled...

drivingexperience@bmw.de

You can also contact someone via the web site's "Contact" link.

I would also suggest checking the web site every couple of days and starting in February.

Totally agree, but MANY don't want to track their //M cars.
Makes me sad.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
