Racing weekend videos - Australian Tarmac Challenge

As featured on 1addicts homepage.

Hi guys, fellow 135i owner and forum member Takahashi and myself entered my 135i in the Australian Tarmac Challenge last month. Unlike our usual track work, we approached this with having a bit of fun in mind and little preparation was done to both the car and ourselves. It's our first time at the ATC (formally Dutton Rally) and we thought we will just familiarise ourselves with what it's all about before going for a serious assault in the future. Anyway, here are the videos courtesy of Taka. Give these videos a good rating on Youtube if you like them! Enjoy.

Day 1






Day 2






Day 3

Great videos!! Thanks for sharing those. It's great to see so many 1addicts members into tracking their cars. Speaks volumes about how into driving 1 series owners really are.

P.S., loved the start of the race in the first video

Thanks Jason. I think the 1 series is really suited to racing/tracking. Sure you need to do a few things to it, but once it is properly set up, it is damn quick little car! I have consistently beaten many highly modded EVOs and STIs and GT3s in many events (when we take it more seriously haha).
