Shots of your cars at the track!

Thought it would be neat to showcase forum member's cars (fully track prepped, or not) out in their intended environment.

I'll start it off with a few shots from last weekend at Laguna Seca.

Pardon my noob driving, was my first time out and driving the M3 in anger. Car is completely stock. As an aside, I did not get passed a single time that weekend and felt quite smug about it

RX7 spins out at ~ 15:35
GT350 goes off-track at ~ 16:30

The M3 looks perfectly at home in that apex. Such a great photo with your car.

thank you for posting. Great video and great driving.

I was impressed with how composed the f80 was over the rumble strips...you were making use of every inch of the track.

Do you have adaptive suspension? what settings were your throttle/steering/suspension on?

I also really like the track. plenty of run off room.

Absolutely! Thank you but I can't take all the credit. I had an awesome instructor and the car is a testament to BMW engineering.

Yep, I have EDC. For the first day I was in pretty much sport+ on everything (steering in comfort) but on the second day I backed off throttle to just sport since I wanted to work on smoothing my throttle inputs and I found sport+ to be a bit too jerky/harsh (or maybe aggressive is the better word here).

It's a pretty safe/fun track overall and I'm going to try to make it back this June. Highly recommend it to anyone that can go in the area.

looks like the RX7 did a classic lift off oversteer. i'm surprised tho, thought that wing would have added some downforce...

at least that GT350 driver did the smart thing and not jerk the wheel to try to steer back onto the track.

that track looks pretty darn safe, plenty of runoff.

I'm not certain it was a result of lifting given his position in the turn but perhaps by not releasing the steering angle as he progressed to the exit of the turn.


Either way it was a tank-slapper and he couldn't recover.
Glad he is ok and I hope the vehicle didn't incur too much damaged.
