Had a great time at Laguna on Thursday!
There were pace cars leading us around only allowing 85mph top speed, but most of these corners were at my limit, this was done on Pilot S's, showing the wear bars, tires screeching. Traction control off, sport on!
My only serious complaint about these beasts is that they lean too much on the factory shox.

Great stuff! You're right about the shock absorbers. I'd upgrade the brakes to decent AP's, Stoptechs or Brembos as well. Do a search - there's plenty of stuff written about track modifications.

What a race, Lexus wins again in the DP class and BMW sweeps the GT podium making it a PTG group picture. To bad about the primary car getting taken out by a rolling speedbump(911).

PilotMike, I looked around this morning for you but had to get ready for the show. I should be back for the Historic races later this year.

I just stopped on the way home only to find someone near here has a wireless transmitter I can bounce off of.



Here is the GT podium, all BMW. I wonder why Bill Auberlan is looking so down ?:( (Joey wrecked my car)

Went down Saturday for the Grand Am Cup race (a friend of mine is crew chief for one of the Mustang teams), parked up in the Wolf Hill parking, when I headed back up the hill to leave there were two TiAg E39 M5s up there. Anyone?
