I'm thinking of getting a car, just for the track. l'm not sure if it's really worth floging the M5 around the odd track day every now and then. My insurance company has said their not sure if they would cover me if l need to use a claim from a track day ding???
I'm thinking of keeping the beast for sometime in it's Nowacked state, and it gets enough of my right foot as is. I'm also thinking of getting one of the last M5's in my dealers allocation.....the reason is because of Bangle's new 5,6,7 series...
So what do you guys think.....
My idea's arn't solid, but l would really like a BMW first choice for the track. Something with a power to weight ratio of around 300HP to the ton. A tuned and striped Euro 3.2 M3 would be a great option, as it has around 300hp?? and light weight in track finish. Finding one second hand would be the best and cheapest option by far. What price would/could one of these run for US30-40K ??
BTW...how would l find one of those or any BMW race/track prept cars for sale??
I also have thought of a tweeked WRX STI with 400+HP
Good power, great traction and good handling, good bang for buck value
I looked at the Radical. But with 500HP per ton thats a bit too much to handle right now.....they say their as quick as a F3 if on slicks...holly s^#@ and for 30K Pounds thats very attractive.
Panoz have a track car option but l don't know much about them?
Maybe open wheels could be an option as well....the skip Barber 3 days cars seem to have potential for fun factor at lowish cost?
So l'm open to suggestions....let me have it type away
