"Chasing a Corvette C6 Z06 in a BMW E92 M3" @ MotorSports Ranch (3.1)

This was my first time running at MotorSports Ranch (MSRC) in Cresson, TX. MSRC is a very technical track with lots of elevation changes, off camber turns and blind corners. The event was organized by Driver's Edge, which did a great job!

I've only been able to run the 1.7 CCW. Would love to run the 3.1! Looks good!

Nice driving! I got the flu on saturday and spent most of the day huddling in my car shivering, and didn't try to drive Sunday and went home early. Sunday was so much nicer than Saturday....

The 3.1 is a blast! MSRC 3.1 is now my favorite track!

Thanks! Sorry man what a bummer. With the cold windy weather, that was not the place to be with the flu.

Sweet video, appreciate the commentary Looks like a fun flowing track. Texas is pretty far away, but that's why I bought this GT

Thanks! MSRC is a really fun track once you learn the proper line around the track. The off camber and blind corners can bite you in a hurry if get it wrong. There is however adequate run off in most areas. I did manage to get 2 wheels off on my very first session while learning the track.
