Got to drive the G87 M2 at the performance center this week, it feels more like the next gen E92 M3 in terms of feel and proportions when driving. The change in steering feel with the electric rack was noticeable, but not that bad IMO. The m240ix was unpleasant in comparison.



Didn't get to drive the G80/2 M cars, but did get an instructor hot lap in one and they feel like a shrunk M5 but have a more grunt than the M2 as expected.

My first time ever at the Glen.. I won't lie, it was a little intimidating with all the GT cup cars and then my little e92 lol.. Went with a private track rental and there was probably 2-3 street cars, the rest were cup cars and dedicated race cars.

My fastest time of the 2 day trip was 2:15.7... Took some getting comfortable around the Esses and really learning how to take the boot.

Can't wait to go back!

Good looking Glen laps. Really nice line at turn 9, where most people chicken out and late apex and give up a ton of time. Do the same at T11, the fast way is a way earlier apex than you think, there's a ton more room on the exit than the blue bushes make you think. Bit more speed everywhere and you'll knock of 4-5 more seconds.

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback.

Iím pretty sure these laps videoíd were my 2:18-2:20 laps, my fastest was a 2:15 and the car definitely has the capability to go faster. Itís more of me just growing the balls to go faster lol

Maybe next time!
