    Default I was the fastest e34 out there..

    Ok, the only e34.

    My first road coarse event at Pacific raceways was great! The track was a little wet for the first session but the last three were dry. I learned a lot, and can't wait for the next event!

    Unfortunately it looks like no one got any decent in-motion pictures, I snapped a few from the paddock, parked next to my dream car...

    Jeff N- Phil was my instructor (Forgot his last name, Alfa guy that has an RX7 Race car) I thought he did a very good job, kept me calm in the car and helped me learn the lines. Rode a few laps in his RX7, way fun!

    Default Not sure on tires...

    That does look like 6; there's a turn station right to the outside too.

    I like this one also.

    How much does it cost to track the car Max, I'm not talking about fuel or wear and tear items like brakes and tyres, I mean for club licence and track fees for the day. What brake pads were you running?

    You have to be a Bmwcca Member -$40/year (I think)
    Car inspection- $40.00
    Beer and parts for Martin to help me with pan gasket- $25
    Skills day prerequisite to road coarse was $70 or $75
    Novice Road coarse with an instructor all day was $165 (four 20-25min sessions)

    So really a great deal.

    Running M5 fronts, blank brembos with PBR metal masters, same as Jeff. Maybe very little fade, but no "oh Sh*%" moments. I don't have the 540i ducting yet though.
