Man, not too shabby. That thing covers some serious ground. You only got destroyed by a yellow Porsche and Dimoff's M3... But daaamn that Porsche passed you like you were standing still, but never really got that far ahead of you after that.

Driving Schools will be ... ehhhm somewhat boring.

Here is a video from the mock race we had at the end of the Race school.

Thats a lot of pictures for someone who stayed up too late drinking, shooting guns, and playing with fire all night. Not even too blurry for being all hung over. Nicely done!

^ lol at "The Dave"

Quick question: I'm trying to convince a friend of mine that he NEEDS to come to the school. He wants to but today he pointed out that he has a Z4 roadster, and was concerned there is a roll bar restriction? Can he bring his car to school?

Hi Kam, the issue isn't so much the car as it is the car/driver relationship. IE. me (I'm short for those of you who don't know me) would fit no problem. But if you're tall then you may not pass what we call the broom stick rule. Seated in the driver's seat with a helmet on, you need to be able to have a broom stick sit on the windshield header to the roll hoop behind the seat and have a finger clearance above the helmet to the broom stick. For further clarification contact Scott Paterson our registrar.

But if he can make it he should. I truly believe in these schools from many aspects. For the enthusiast and your uninterested a to b drivers, I do believe these schools are beneficial to anybody and everyone as it improves smoothness, reaction time, car control, limitations and so on.......

I don''t think it will be a problem. I am twice the size of John (in every possible dimension, including doogles), had a student in a Z4 and I fit fine with or without the top up (helmet on, of course), just about a finger below the frame of the windshield.

Thanks for the ammo guys - I'll get to work on my friend. I'm a true believer too - this will be my third school.

We had two Z4's out to the last school, and both drivers fit without a problem.
