Thought I'd post up some youtube vids of CCW for those who've never run the track in that configuration. I don't have any of my CCW vids on youtube, but I'm sure some of you will recognise these guys.

Thanks...quite helpful.

One difference between Track Days with cars vs motorcycles -- on the two-wheelers, we have to tape-over or disconnect brake lamps, turn signals, headlamps, etc. So it is still a bit weird for me to see the brake lights lighting-on at MSRH. (adds a new thrill factor, of some sort!)

Wait until you get behind a mini...its a highly distracting light show. The worst is being behind a car with an airbrake. I was behind a MP4-12C and it looked so cool. I was mezmorized and almost went off the track.

So...if Phil installs an AirBrake mod, then we'll know why he's not getting lapped by anyone. Got it.

If I got an airbrake, I would make it the shape of a hand flipping the bird with some strobe lights on it. So whoever is behind me will either be too surprised, blinded, scared, pissed off or laughing too hard to pay attention and go right off the track. I'll be king of the track!

I guess the ultimate insult would be my middle finger breaking off and bouncing off your car.

No, Phil, no!

The problem with anyone wearing the ///M Club Shorts at a corner is that nobody will even want to go past the turn. There will be a pile-up that looks like I-45 @ Mt. Houston during rush-hour.

(might make for good video, though, as long as we can blur-out the Shorts)

You're right, though, this is what happens when there is a long gap between Track Days. I fully comprehend you guy's addiction to HPDEs. (for now, I'm resisting the mod bug,...for now....)

First videos, then "pants", and now a middle finger air brake. Is there an age limit to the M Club? Like, if you act older than 14 years old...you're not welcome?

For the record...I might have been responsible for the air brake idea but I sure didn't make the picture. ROFL

Hey guys, I introduced myself on the Houston M Forum but I guess that site does not receive much traffic. Anyways, can I come to spectate this and just meet everyone and take pictures? The closes thing to a track I have seen is the Houston BMW chapter Autocrossing. If so, is there anyway to have a ride with an instructor (like autocrossing) to see what it's like so in the future when I do participate in a track day?
-Hai

P.S. I only weigh 140 LBS when I drink a lot of water throughout the day.

You can definitely visit as a spectator...that's how I first met all these nice people and the event organizers (and my car wasn't delivered yet.)

And I took quite a few photographs.

However...

the event organizers will have to share with you the specific rules regarding photography (i.e. there are several off-track spots from which to shoot). Additionally, they allow passengers, but only with the designated instructors. Make sure you bring a recent-model helmet for your head, even if you don't get a reply before Saturday.

And check-up on the policies at MSRH, whether you're on their facility as a driver, passenger, or spectator:
