Still need to get some photos from the solo session, the lady said it was going to be online but last I checked, nothing.






My partner for the leap frog exercise. We were not only leap frogging each other, but we were leap frogging traffic.

Very nice! I will be posting some videos later from the event as well. Nice times. I don't think I ever got a clean track (traffic everywhere) to post a best time but 2:15 is very fast! Last time I did a couple 2:18's I think.

What did you use as a camera mount? Been thinking of mounting my iphone onto the headrest somewhere this year but haven't found anything suitable.

It was nice to meet you guys.

That is a very fast lap! Looking at my Sunday videos, I had a couple 2:17/2:18 laps, but most of mine were around 2:20. Watching your video, it looks like you were really flying through the esses.

Its called CruiseCam, but I don't think you'll be able to mount an iphone onto it. It's got that screw that goes into those tripod mounts.

Very nice to meet you too! Yeah, Chris showed me a couple of nice lines up the climbing esses and he told me to use the curbs which I loved to do when I drove on the Ring.

Hey, I was at the trackday too, I was running a '11 335i in D group. I have some videos of your car if you want to see them, by far the best sounding e9x m3 there.

Yeah, I saw your car too. You taped your fogs with orange tape. Beautiful car, especially when you had your AE's on and that exhaust is not stock, that's for sure. I would love to get the videos from you, if you don't mind uploading to Youtube or something.

LOL, I just played it 10 times in a row. Wife told me to stop. I'll play again when she's out of the room.

Next time I'll take a video of your car, its very loud and distinct, think its louder than the Akra which is what you want on the track! That's another cool video, thanks!!!

Great additional write up!

I saw Randy Pobst as well. I turned around and did a double take, thinking "man, that guy looks JUST like Randy Pobst!" It wasn't until the next day I found out it really was him.

Here is video from one of my sessions:

Very nice! Now I know the faster line going around Oak Tree. I watched the entire thing, and one word to describe it is, smooth. What kind of suspension/ tire setup are you running?

That line into Oak Tree was one of the things I was working on. My instructor was particularly fast through there, and was trying to show me a constant radius that eventually allowed me to get on the gas really early before the straight. It felt great when I pulled it off, but I missed it more than I got it!

My car was stock, other than Bridgestone RE-11 tires. I was even on stock pads after wearing out my first set of pads on Saturday. I was running with the EDC suspension set to stiff, and MDM off. (I had it on some of the day Saturday)
