Track Photo Content: Some BMWs Having Fun at Buttonwillow Raceway

This weekend (3/17/13) we headed out to Buttonwillow Raceway for a trackday hosted by Speed District. The turnout for BMWs, including many of our customers, was impressive. Here are some awesome photos that have been graciously provided by the Speed District photographers. Enjoy.

Here's what came to mind when i saw those photos:

1) lol @ the x5 on the track. I love it.
2) how did the m6 hold up?
3) to this day i still love the way the e36 looks.
4) i've seen that yellow gtr before in person. he's clearly copying my color (jk). how modded is it?
5) tom, what suspension are you running on your white e92 M3 (with the wing)?

X5 was a late contender, driver has a supercharged E90 that is getting paintwork completed. He didn't do that bad from what I remember.

Not sure, didn't see much of it after noon hour.

Still running KWV3s, looking for a replacement at this time.

Yes, haven't been out in quite some time, so was a bit rusty.
