Ahmed, that was awesome, love how the M can keep up with the vette and 911 in corners. Towards the last corner, you were actually catching them.

What is that chime? Also, did you have an instructor in the car with you?

Love the low fuel warning!:grinyes:
Good driving.............. Did you get your brake pad issue sorted out, or is this the day that you were having problems?

Thanks guys, really enjoyed myself on the day!

Gulf Spec cars! Stupid chime comes on at 120km/h (70 mph)

And that was a dear friend with me who seems to know alot with hardly in track time! LOL.. his instructions worked though, I shved my lap time from 1:26.88 to 1:25.25

I got Pagid RS29's coming on the way!

Surprisingly, a few hard braking corners, and the juddering significantly reduced. I had a much better track experience this time, lap after lap the brakes held better! I think it was because I drove it harder this time, instead of babying or dragging the brakes like last time!

I think they needed re-bedding!

That looks VERY fun!!! Great video. I would LOVE to do this. What would I search for to find one of these types of tracks in Florida?

Good work Ahmed, and the car sounds like a monster :D

What times did the Z06 and GT3 run? It´s interesting to see what a good driver can do, despite having a huge handicap against those two trackday cars, M5 is like 1200-1300 lbs heavier.
