Barber Motorsports Park Damp E46 M3 (Wreck at end)
3/23/13 After my first session the track dried substantially and I was really able to pick up speed, but the track was still wet in some areas and that would mean my demise. I averaged 1:56, but my fastest laps were 1:55.57 and 1:55.80. If you listen to my engine, I'm barely decelerating through that section. When the back end started to slip I counter steered, but instinctively let up a bit more on the throttle and I believe that is what put me into the wall. I believe that if I gave it more gas instead, then weight would transfer to the rear and that with counter steer would have kept me on the track. I'm open to constructive criticism so let me know what you think.

BMW M3 at Barber Motorsports Park for BMWCCA O'fest 2011
Driving Barber Motorsports Park in my stock 1998 BMW M3. I'm running Nitto-01 R comps tires and Hawk HT-10 brakes. Somewhere in the middle of this run I pull a 1:50.37 lap which was probably my fastest of O'fest. Barber is a great track and facility (Like all Alan Wilson tracks) I highly recommend giving it a try if you're in the area.
