Great Video! Next time I recommend using tracks 600-8400 for your soundtrack.

I wanted to but wind noise dominated the soundtrack. Will try a few things next time to see if it improves.

Yeah, Its a compromise to get good sound, and the video isn't as good through the windshield. My GoPro takes better video outside, but I have had good sound results on the inside of the windshield.

I have DCT, and am thinking about an external mic to try and coordinate with the video, yeah the sound from the car is awesome, always have people coming up after saying they loved the sound of the exhaust as I passed them

Nice video! I am dying to go to Autobahn CC. Unfortunately, my schedule did not allow me to go at all this year. How much are the track days during the week? I noticed you went on a Monday.

They're pretty much the same as any other day, in fact, weekends are cheaper.(when doing the whole weekend on avg.) It's a great track that suits the M well. Hope to see you out there next year

What a beautiful October day! Autobahn CC looks like a fun, flowing track--I like that there is a good combo of left and right turns. Looks like you were using the width of the track well and tracking out nicely.

The flagger did a good job alerting you to the spun car around the next corner--looks like it had just happened prior to you getting there.

Your closing speed on most of the other cars was tremendous. This was intermediate--were there any 911s, Corvettes, Mustangs, etc.?

Yes, it's a fantastic track. Have more footage of me passing a few Z06's and a viper, they hate pointing by, pull away on the straights and ignore in the corners... Well not all of them, just the ones I come across Should have run the advanced group with Hooked On Driving, as they're more street car oriented. That being said, starting to get down to the faster times at autobahn and should be running advanced at this track. Heading to Road America this weekend and will see if my skills and comfort level translate there... Am sure hoping... Thanks for the props and continue to try and improve. Always the student, never the master...

nice video - is this a driving school or track day? It looks like the turn in, apex and track out points are all marked with cones. Not a fan of this "teaching" method...
