I'll be there Sat. Looks like a full event based on the attendance list--hopefully it won't be a continual 1.53-mi train...

I'll be there instructing Friday and Saturday. Not going to be in E90, but the E30 M3 instead.

Went yesterday--it was a good time, with great weather. Quite a few E9X M3s there. I got our fellow board member bklynbimmer on video coming down the front straight in his Space Gray E90 M3. Looked like his exhaust was stock (correct me if I'm wrong, bklynbimmer), but the car sure sounded great screaming down the straight at probably 120. Turn up your speakers:

Was there as well for both days. I ran in group D as this was only my second event and I had an absolute blast. I felt like I progressed with each session and had my best run on the last session of day two. I took some pics. The first one is my car - I am sure you saw me. Check out the indy car in the background.

A few more. These cars were also parked behind me and appeared to be owned by the owner of the Indy car. The Scuderia was sick!

I liked the Scuderia as well. I admired it every time I walked by on the way to the Men's room.

The 348 race car was LOUD. He was running/testing when we were in a classroom session in the timing tower, and every time he came into the hot pits below the tower for a tire pressure check, the whole tower would vibrate!

What color is your car? Just wondering if I saw you. I was near the bathrooms both days.

I saw your car Friday, made me smile as its exactly the same as mine but with a wing. Gotta love black huh. Lol.
The event was a blast.. The car ran great and the folks at the event were a ton of fun!
The track is challenging. It's so short that trying to find 1-2 seconds is really hard for me.

Yup I had you in my rearview quite a few times. You were pretty quick out there. How are your brake pads?
