Nice pics!

My wife took these shot with a Canon 5D Mark III, but she doesn't know how to use it. I had told her to use the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens, but nope she decided to use the 24-105mm cause it was already on the camera . Anyways good shots after all for the most part.

Canon 300mm F2.8L.

I left the 24-105 F4L in the truck.

I had a 1.3 crop factor with the 1D versus your full frame sensor.

The pictures came out very nice. Did you happen to take one of my car? The e92 M3 Silverstone II, I was in the beginners class cause I know there was like three Silverstones there.

I have pictures of the advanced group and beginner group. What are the distinguishing characteristics of your car? I am sure I have some, but since I am new to the group, I don't know everybody.

I was in the beginners group. Mines was the silverstone with the stock wheels and carbon fiber roof. Not sure if the other silverstones also had CF roofs.

WOW.......what a day I would first like to thank my partners in crime James and Richard (I don't know how you guys put up with me but we get the job done). Next, thanks to all the track junkies, their significant others and friends for coming out to our kick off event. As I always say, you are the reason we burn the midnight oil to make these track days happen. I didn't spend much time driving yesterday because there was work to be done, but I enjoyed all the chatter I heard as I walked around and talked with you all. I know a few of you were chomping at the bits to get at me while on track so I'll make a commitment to run a solid 2 sessions next event. Let me also thank all the photographers that spent time snapping photos and now working to get them ready to post. Again, thanks to everyone of you and I will post a small video clip of what happens when you hit the launch with cold tires and a aggressive attitude.......Phil

Yes, more E36's needed!

Was the owner of the E60 M5 rolling through the Heights on 11th around 1PM today? I think I saw your car as we were going to Kroger.

yes, I have your pics. Hang tight.

Sorry on the Silverstone M3 with CF roof. I did not get any pics of you. Ride close to my wife (alpine white E92 with S65B40 license plate) and you will surely get pics.
