    Thank you! Very happy with my 50.999 in my stock 06 325xi!!! I can't wait to ditch the 16x7 runflats next year.

    An S2000 won Showroom 1, with a Boxter slotting in sixth

    Also, a 2006 M Coupe in T2 that seems to belong in T1

    Thumbs up Chapter DIYer Second in Class

    Waytogo, car 203! Second in class!

    In addition to obvious driver skill, perhaps your DIY efforts at preventative maintenance et al are helping to keep you at the front.

    Slainte,
    Alan

    Also, I believe the M5 in S1 should be in S2.

    Thanks Alan!

    However, my driving skill remains in question: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFU3b...e=channel_page

    I went too fast through the back gates and missed one of the gates for an 'off course' on that run, you can hear it called on the video. At that point I just thought I'd have some fun and go entirely too fast through the slalom section, and earn my 'captain backwards' nickname again.

    Bogdan remains the big dog to beat. I can never touch his times.

    Somehow I went off course on runs 1,2 and 4. But from the times that I heard, the 3rd was still my fastest. But I got videos of all 4 of my runs, and I can't for the life of me see where I went off. If I didn't see it at the time, I don't know what I'd see different now.. who knows.

    Did anyone notice the gray E92 M3 going off course every run? It didn't look like he wanted to slow down around the islands because he just ignored a gate or two that was meant for slowing vehicles down on every run. I thought his disregard for the course design was rather ridiculous.

    I figured it out. I took the left entrance to slalom, but in my brain, I thought I took the right entrance. So I did the exit wrong.

    What was your car number, I have a few more videos I haven't posted yet. I can check what I have.

    damn just .6sec from FTD...closest to FTD I've been ever probably. Had a blast at the event, really well organized. Wish I could have made previous BMW events. Looks like my dad's going to join the club now lol.

    We're considering making the non-bmw class next year an SCCA PAX class too

    If I were PAXed better(I'm on street tires but their rating is just less than 210...) I would have had FTD for PAX. Makes me wish I had some R-Compounds laying around for these events.

    Out of curiosity, what do you have done to that Civic?
