I was down at VIR last weekend with my school's motorsports club. While there I was flagging and trying to get a ride. The whole time I was there, there was this e46 M3 that was just flying around everything else on the track. It looked like it was on rails. So I finally talk to the driver and all he's done to it is coilovers and some wide R-compound tires. I ask him for a ride and he said yes! We went out on the track and it was the most extreme experience ever. He hit turns so hard and the stock braking was incredible. We ended up hitting 145mph on the back straight and that's because he ran our of revs in fourth and didn't shift until the next turn...he said he was taking it easy because his tires were almost gone from the whole weekend. Anyways, the only car that could hang with us was a GT3. The driver said that he was beating the GT3 when his tires were better.


INSANE!!!!

nice, ihad Carl McGinn(used to race for Mercedes) gimme a ride inhis E36 M3 with just some upgraded springs, when i would think that he would brake, he'd just upshift and give it more gas, we would hit the inside red/white bumper deals and go on two wheels, then he would just laught, damn that was insane, we did 136 on straight at BUttonwillow, which is hella fast for that straight.

You people are lucky that you have things like Auto/motorsport clubs at school/college, I wish we'd had one when I was at school, but it's just something that we don't have over here.

Unlucky, but that is nanny state Britain for you. In the IOM we have several race courses and one track that you can pay to use. The courses are on normal roads and include the infamous 37.73 mile per lap TT course. Still where you see the "no limit" sign it literally means no limit. Yes you can go as fast as you want (or dare). Certain government ministers want a max. limit but the people do not.

Jeremy Clarkson just bought a house. Top Gear Island?

Cheers

the TT course, i remember seeing some Motorcycle race on Speedvision, wow, TT course = so amazing... Id love to drive on any road with no limit, that would be SO AMAZING, mainly because it would relieve the stress of the police(obviously), even though i drive the canyons and such without a limit( )
