Hopefully they'll have you make up those lost days and you'll be able to come out to the track in Dec.

Good meeting you to - I was riding along in my buddies car and was behind your awesome car. I think my buddy ran 2:04 on that day but it was no match in the straights.

have yet to plan it out - its so far ahead and have wedding planning headaches right now. I've always ran 2:20+ before (yes I was going in Reverse) but managed to get down to 2:16 consistently from session 2 and on....so i would say massive improvement. next step is 2:10 or less and it will be respectable!

Which car was your buddy running? I was running 2:04-2:06 most of my open laps. I started out at 2:21 when I first went to BW with the GT3 as sad as it is. Then I went down to 2:15 then 2:11 and now call it 2:05ish. Ultimate goal is below 2 minutes but taking 5 seconds off my time will take a lot more time than going from 2:20 to 2:15 or 2:15 to 2:10. I'll probably see ~1 second improvement per event is my guess. My buddies in their E92s were down to 2:10-2:12.

I was in the ss2 with big wing. I think his best was 2:01. It was crazy we were behind you on the straight and then there was some crazy passing going on because the car in front of both of us. If i remember it was both of us pass one guy then you gave us a point and then new car in front gave both a point by all from cotton corners to bus stop. Lol

I was with the ss2 with big wing and the frozen red m3. 2:01 and 2:11. Im just glad im getting closer to the average drivers! Ill be at 2:10 or less in no time (i hope!)

Saturday was my 4th day and Sunday was my 5th day with the GT3. I did add NT01s with 18s between the 2:10-2:11 runs (3rd day) and this weekend so without them I'd probably run like a 2:07ish on the RS3s. I watched some of the videos and there's still room for improvement in a handful of turns. In the hands of the right driver, my car can easily do a 1:55 since I have aero, the power, and grip. I think a pro could do low 1:50s in my car.

Dunno about that, but that car should be doing 1:52 or 1:51 at least... But, of course, it's easy to sit in front of a computer and say that.

Yeah, that thing was all business for the track. However, the guy in the full-race Vette ran the fast lap of the weekend....either 1:45 or 1:47 (can't remember).

I saw how some of those guys had 2 or 3 wrist bands. Guess going out in group wasn't enough for them.

It's possible. There were two space grey e92 M3's parked next to usctrojan. One is was mine and the other was a buddies. Both cars were coded for BFD (Brake Force Display). I was running the black Apex wheels and the other had Mag Blue Volks.
