BMW E36 Budget Track Day Car by Turner Motorsport
This video accompanies the April 2011 issue of eurotuner magazine. We took
a $2300 1992 BMW 325is and added a series of performance parts to try and
reduce the lap times. With better brakes, suspension, intake, Exhaust, engine chip, 17" wheels and racing
slicks, we were able to improve the car by 25sec per lap.
All the parts were supplied and fitted by Turner Motorsport. Professional
driver Michael Marsal was at the wheel, and we used Monticello Motor Club
as our race track

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.
