Spins and highlights - BMW 330Ci @ Buttonwillow 13CW track day (Speed Ventures)
Some spins and passes as I try to chase a GT-R, Viper, M3 and others around Buttonwillow. Best viewed in 1080p fullscreen.
Recorded with a GoPro HD Hero2 and ContourRoam suction cup-mounted to the bumpers of my E46 330Ci. This was my second track day since the year I got my driver's license, so yes, I suck.
FYI: Drivers being passed usually eased off the gas to help other cars get by, especially before corners. Also, I declined the overly generous point-by from the much faster GT-R.

CROOKERS - NO SECURITY FEAT. KELIS
Speed Ventures at Auto Club Speedway Evo X 5/6/12
The best lap of this session, and my first session ever on this track, was
a 1:57.532. Best lap of the day was 1:55.709
Speed Ventures at Auto Club Speedway in my Mitsubishi Evolution X running
red group. My first time at this track. Had serious fuel starvation issues
at turn 17 coming onto the oval. Starting at lap 4, and every lap after
that, you can hear the car back fire in quick succession and lose power as
I come onto the oval. This would happen everytime my fuel dropped below 3/4
of a tank.
A BIG thank you to Massimo Power and Naji at Looney Tune for helping me
sort my fuel issue at the track. At first we thought it was a tuning
problem so MC (who was at the track with us) called Naji (who was at home)
and he did a quick edit on my tune and emailed it to MC. MC then hooked up
his laptop and flashed my car with the new tune, but I still had issues
during the next session. So once again Naji did another tune and sent it to
MC to flash to my car. Finally on my last session of the day I was able to
get in 8 laps without issue. On the 9th lap the issue came back. At the end
of the day we figured it was fuel starvation which was caused by the high G
left hander coming onto the oval (my datalog shows me at 80+mph in turn
By the time I figured out it was fuel starvation that was causing my
problem the battery on my gopro died (my fault for not fully charging it)
and I couldn't record my best lap. The last session of the day I managed a
1:55.709 with a full tank of gas. All 8 laps of the last session were
1:55.xxx to 1:56.xxx.
Now that I know I have to run a full tank I can concentrate on the car
setup next time. I think I have a 1:53.xxx in me at this track. Hope to
have a fuel surge kit setup soon to resolve the fuel starvation issue while
not having to run a full tank of gas...and the added weight to go along
All in all not bad for a stock turbo
full interior street tire daily driver :)

Playing with the Porsches - Calabogie Motorsports Park
Playing along some Porsche's at Calabogie Motorsports Park. One is a GT3
RS and the other is a Carrera 4S. This video goes to show how much fun
lapping days can get. Video was shot during the test and tune day for the
Gentlemen's cup races which is held at CMP.
The car which the camera is mounted in is a Ford Contour SVT with some
upgrades. For those who are not from North America, that would be similar
to a Ford Mondeo ST200.

8 Year Old Boy Rides in a Full Bolt On BMW 335i - HD!
My 8 year old nephew, Nick, is in town and we decided to go for a little
spin (he has never been in my car before). It's great seeing his reaction
after a few hard pulls in the car. He's a great kid and loves fast cars.
His love of cars comes from playing Need for Speed, Gran Turismo, and
watching Nascar on TV occasionally. Enjoy!
