Hou BMW CCA Autox 2/17

The next BMW CCA autocross at the Houston Police Academy will be this Sunday. Registration closes Friday night. At least 3 E9x M3's are already signed up. It will be my first outing with the new car. I hope to keep the sliding to a minimum.

Register through the Houston BMW CCA site.

Two quick pics from the autocross today. The weather was great, and the course was fun. I'm still trying to come to grips with the E92 vs the E36 and M Coupe handling characteristics. The E92 has way more power, but you do notice the additional weight in autox events. I was happy with the level of grip and the feedback I got before the rear would break traction.

We had 4 E9x M3's out today, I ended up the fastest Richard's 1M beat us all, and a couple of E36's were fastest BMW's for the day.

I don't know how much longer I will have it as it is on the market. We will see what I replace it with...995 911? Was looking into a cayman too.
