2008 BMW 135i on the Nurburgring
Another Lap on the Nurburgring! This one is about a 9 min lap. I took it
pretty easy and had some "technical" difficulties. The camera flew out of
my headrest around the end. Timing was from bridge to bridge. Enjoy!

Z06 Corvette in car video taken from a Road America track day. The track
was rented by the Northwoods Shelby Club and this was my first time driving
on the Road America track. The Z06 is completely stock with the original
Goodyear runflats (terrible tires) and has Hawk pads. Enjoy

Consistency -- How To Become a Better Track Day Driver -- Hooked On Driving
http://www.hookedondriving.com Driving consistent high-skill, high-quality
laps on the race track during a high performance driver education event or
racing is a key to success and dramatically reduces risk. Novice
performance drivers will commonly place "driving faster" as a higher priority over "driving
consistently" with disastrous results. You must use skills of concentration
and discipline—not pushing beyond YOUR personal skill limit—to
successfully drive consistent quality laps; and only then begin to fine
tune other skills such as maximizing use of the tire during corner entry
Hooked On Driving is a Performance Drivers School, hosting events across
the country; all you need is a car, tank of gas and need for speed.
Girlfriend + car wash + bikini + bike = Free track day for me!
Our local motorcycle forum, Band of Riders .net, offered a free track day
from Tony's Track Days to anyone who could convince their girlfriend to go
through a car wash in a bikini on the back of their motorcycle. Being that
I love track days, my girlfriend loves me, AND she's awesome, it didn't
take TOO much convincing to make it happen...
Portland International Raceway in a BMW 135i
Video of a few laps around PIR. This is a really nice track, my 135i with
Dinan Stage II and Riss Exhaust could
hit 130 to 140 MPH on the two straights here. Track is really hard on
brakes though, I turned my white caliper letters yellow here when brakes
hit about 900 degrees.
