BMW M5 - Green Hell Fly & Drive
Already, thousands of you registered to be part of the BMW M5 Story. Some
days ago, six of you had the chance to test drive the new BMW M5 at a very
special place... the Nordschleife, Nürburgring.

The 2011 BMW M5
This is the fifth generation of the BMW M5. It comes with a world premiere:
a newly developed high-revving 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower turbo package. It's a perfect combination of a
sports car and a business car. BMW also significantly improved the balance
between performance and fuel consumption. But let's stop talking and watch
this exceptional BMW M car.

Some bad driving and bad etiquette from a Lime Rock track day (20131116 lrp scda irritation)
I had a great day today with SCDA at Lime Rock in my 2010 Porsche 911 GT3.
Unfortunately, however, the first session of the day included some really
bad driving and also some bad etiquette. Not what I've come to expect from
the Advanced run group.
It may be hard to tell from the video, but the passing rules during these
track days are extremely strict. You're not allowed to pass another car
unless the driver of the car you're overtaking has seen you and has
literally pointed with his/her hand out the window to tell you they've seen
you and on which side they would like you to pass. Not pointing someone by
who is obviously faster than you
(e.g. is behind you now, but wasn't there before) is considered very bad
etiquette, and will get you thrown off the track. Equally bad is
overtaking without a point-by. In both cases, because this isn't a race
but rather just a practice/educational event, this is done for safety
reasons, since passing without point-by as is done in racing (see my
Mazdaspeed Challenge videos) exponentially increases the likelihood of
collisions. I actually got one of these on video during one of those races
where two cars hit while being side-by-side at Lime Rock in turn 1 -- the
same place the Porsche passes me in this video. It's fine and fun to run
this way when everyone is playing by the same rules, but infuriating when
you're observing the rules and others are not.
2:07 - Yellow Lotus doesn't give point-by to a faster black GT3, so the GT3 passes anyway
without permission. The Lotus driver also doesn't point me by, so I wait
for a bit.
3:05 - Blue R32 gives me polite point-by and moves offline in the downhill.
This is a very polite move, thanks to this good driver!
3:28 - I catch a black Corvette, and he catches black Mercedes C63 AMG who
isn't pointing anyone by. We're now both stuck behind the Mercedes.
4:16 - This would be the obvious place for the Mercedes to point us by.
But there's no point-by.
4:20 - Instead, the Corvette passes the Mercedes without a point-by. The
Mercedes brakes abruptly before the 6 board and I'm afraid I'm going to
rear-end him, so I move over to the right, being careful not to pass or
present myself at his side without a point-by (which I still haven't
4:38 - The Mercedes takes an erratic line through Turn 2 and brakes in the
middle of the corner. I again take evasive maneuvers to avoid rear-ending
him. I'm now beginning to wonder what is the matter with this person.
Either he doesn't see me or he thinks he is faster than I am.
5:13 - By this point, I'm keeping some distance going into the corners to
avoid an accident, because this person is driving so unpredictably (braking
very hard for fast turns, etc). I go into west bend very slowly.
5:19 - I start to flash my lights to see if I can get his attention.
Again, I need to be very careful not to rear-end the Mercedes coming out of
the downhill. He continues obliviously along the main straight as I flash
my brights very excitedly.
5:40 - A guy in a Radical has had enough and decides to pass us both
without permission from either of us. As I go into turn 1, I get pushed to
the outside, driver's left, by a black and orange Porsche which has dived
in and passed me without a point-by. The Mercedes continues on his crazy
line and both cars pass him without a point-by as well. Blue flags are
out, but the guy in the Mercedes continues obliviously on his way.
6:08 - I try honking my horn to see if that will help. As I come down the
hill, I decide to pull into the pits because I have had enough.
6:37 - Inexplicably, our hero also decides to pull into the pits. I signal
to the cars behind me that I'm going to stay on the track, and two more
cars pass me without a point-by from me (although perhaps reasonably so,
since I had appeared to be heading towards the pits).
Now that the track has been cleared of this particular menace, I now have
to go work my way through traffic again, which you can see in the video

Audi S4 road racing at Lime Rock Park, May 2011 - GIAC tuned
2002 Audi S4 6-speed driving at Lime Rock Park in CT with the Audi Club.
Note - the camera is mounted on the driver's side foglight, hence why it
appears I'm ~5 feet away from all right-hand turn apexes!
For reference, at the end of the main straight speed is around 120-122 in
5th gear. While running the GIAC programming, I'm in 3rd and 4th around the
rest of the track
This session mods:
GIAC 93 octane program with 1.5 degrees advanced timing (Lemmiwinks)

Having a nice morning lapping with SCDA at Lime Rock, minding my own
business, when things get a little tricky.., about two and a half minutes
in,keep your eyes on the little green car two cars ahead of me, especially
when it goes into the uphill right-hander.

What happens, if you put four BMW DTM drivers in a BMW M3 car and give them
some track time? Right, this will be fun. However, it gets even better if a
tiny fifth passenger joins them... For more information, please visit:
