That is a good idea and side note I did both the autoslalom and lapping so I'm not one of the whiners that came just for lapping.

Great driving Rudy.
Thanks buddy! I had more fun lapping with you guys though!! I'll reply to your PM in a sec

I wish I could have stayed in 2nd for most of it to eliminate shifting... but I felt 3rd was more useful, except in the slalom bit at the bottom of the track. Need taller diffy!

Heres a vid of my last run.

That's a decent looking layout. Getting sideways in 3rd gear looks fun

Yea had a great time for my autocross i thought it was max 50??
Kinda stupid question why no sign ups before? Like gp track
Great track layout thanks to john ;-)

Video from my 2nd (I only did 2) run.
Unfortunately the timing gear didn't pick up my car and I wasn't aware (I would have made an effort to re-run).
According to the video footage (time) it was about 1:40 sec.

Hmm I don't have a time for my 5th run. Oh well, I'm really not concerned at all, that was pretty much just a day for me to learn how to drive on my new (to me) tires. Quite a change from the all seasons! Now that I know how far they can be pushed, I need to work up the nerve to drive at that limit.

I was looking for your car Randy, it took me WAY too long to realize why that purple M3 looked familiar! Lol.

Yea, my last lap was missed too. Wasn't told to do a rerun. Felt like my best lap sadly. Oh well. Video shows a time of 1:45.633

However, during the lapping, my flu and lack of sleep caught up to me. That and not getting a pass by for 2 or 3 laps
I was worried about a mental lapse that day and sure enough it happened. I should've gone home after autoslalom.

Anyhow, I went wide going into the first left hander after the bottom straight. The rear right tire went off the track, banged something hard (probably just from the drop off the track onto the dirt) and due to the sideways slide, bent that rim.
I had to go full oppo to save the spin.

So I'll either have to get it straightened or find a replacement.
I'd really like a set of Apex ARC-8's

Start 3:25 in to see the off.

Start 3:10 on the in car camera.

You can see quite a big wobble in this video.

Yup, just the rim. Put the spare wheel on and it was fine. Going to check the alignment to be sure.

Some participants have been asking for the PAX times on the BMWCC fb page, just wanted to know if they were posted anywhere already?

Sorry for the delay. Been out of town for work the last few weeks. I'll have them done this week.

Here are the results from August 25 along with the overall results. Congrats to Kevin for the win.

Anything in bold means I didn't have your car info page, so let me know your car info if that's you. Also, be sure to check your own times and PAX class for typos.
Cheers.
