Okay I was at the regional Bimmer party last Saturday and one of the members came up to me and before saying anything else, told me I was such a track whore--I'M HOPING THIS IS A HUGE COMPLIMENT :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

Well fellow board members, is this just one of the many car guys sayings I've never heard?? Or was he at the bar too long!!!!

The night got even better at my table when I had to admit my M5 was my daily driver--all year long--I think having just to admit I owned an M5 shocked them to begin with HA HA HA

Thanks for the reassurance, I hope!!

Re: I Just Got Called A Track Whore--I HOPE THAT'S A GOOD THING??????????????????????????

If you drive on the track (and I know you do), then I'd take it as a compliment. If you just 'hang out' at the track, then the chances of it being a positive statement are probably much lower. Just my thoughts.:byee55amg

I take this as someone who can't get enough--in this case, driving on the track. So in context, I would say it is a positive!! cherrsagai

Anita,
Based on the number of times you've tracked the M5...you should definitely take it as a complement :thumbsup:

:cheers:

How about a PIC of yourself, so we can judge & compare the remark to the photo ??? :wroom:
Okay, smarty pants didn't you see the pic of "me" posted in the Z06 thread HA HA HA




Murph and Jerry,
Yeah, the person saying it seemed to be very happy to be saying that to me--it seemed like a postive thing, but I just wanted to be sure.

I get to hear some funky things out there though. My favorite conversation overheard this year was a discussion being held by a couple of guys behind me while we were running cones during a low speed autox--they were talking about how Elizabeth Hurley must not have been enough of a freak for Hugh Grant, etc, etc. Now my curiousity got the best of me and I turned briefly to see two older gentlemen doing the talking--how funny. I should write a book right? No no, I'll have mercy on you all HA HA HA

Re: I Just Got Called A Track Whore--I HOPE THAT'S A GOOD THING??????????????????????????

Anita:

I have only heard this expression used to describe a car that has had too much money spent on it, and too many things done to it, so that it is no longer good for much else besides open track days. This is contrasted with a full-out race car that must comply with the rules of a particular sanctioning body.

Women who hang around race tracks looking to meet drivers - and even better, sponsors - are called track [something else]s.

It sounds like the person who addressed this comment to you was affected by an impairment.

Hi, and happy new year.

Regards, Dick Roberts

Are you looking for an honest response? It may be that I'm a bit old fashioned but if someone called my wife, sister or daughter a, "Track Whore" I'd have to consider taking appropriate action. It's difficult to tell what action you should have taken, not knowing the exact situation, but perhaps you should consider how next to address this reprobate. Might I consider the following confrontation at your next big get-together:

First - Throw drink on offenders crotch.

Second - In a very loud voice proclaim to the entire room:
"For the last time, no I won't have sex with you! Now put your tiny penis away!"

Third - Walk away shaking your head while under you breath reminding him that, "Now that's how a Track Whore would act."


Just my advice - you don't have to take it.

Re: I Just Got Called A Track Wh*re--I HOPE THAT'S A GOOD THING??????????????????????

Okay, thanks, I feel better!!! He said it in such a positive, loud and proud way (I think he's actually called me that before, and the husband too) but I just was a tad bit shocked by the saying and in public like that too--I know, I know I need to practice my snappy comebacks.
