Trackdays

Wow first ever post in a forum I just couldn't resist

So who has ever done a trackday in there own car?
I am very tempted to do one next year. I when to one recently and blagged a lift round in a modded Mitsubishi lancer Evo 6 !!!
I don't think you guys get them over there but what car we was just about overtaking everything out there!
And the brakes on this car were awesome the best brakes that i ever experianced.
But if it worth the risk as at another track day I was at recently there was a written off 911 turbo and a Scooby P1 that rolled 3 times when he hit the gravel sideways, and it's stuff like this that puts me off a bit, but I guess you just got to take it easy and know your limits!

LOL M3Pilot. You should get some free stickers for being the first one up, haha. I never put my own car on the track, but i went with Randy (the guy in the first video)the first time to see some apexing and how it was done, and it was soooo cool. He took me for a ride with him around the pile-ons...and i couldn't take my smile off my face. It was really nice. I'm going to be tracking the car next year for sure. Randy convinced me...and some of my firends to go.

I've seen Randys car in a few of the mags, as it seems the we have all the best BMW and performance mags over here in the UK that all you guys seem to read LOL
That is one hell of a car, he has spent some serious$$$% on that but it looks so good I wish I could get a ride in it as well !

Trackdays seem like alot of fun

it was fun...they told us to go like 55mph for safety reasons...and of course we were holding up the train...so 4 people passed us...so they got black flagged...lol

but it was freezing cold...like 47degrees (according to the temperature in the BMW) and like 30mph winds!!! brrrr

Track days...

Actually, I have a custom built, dedicated track car. In fact, I rarely drive the car on the street (it's a little bit of a PITA to get in and out of...).

I probably do upwards of 30 track days per year...and I'm thinking of going to Sebring in January with a bunch of BMW Club members.
