A 1M sitting in a garage collecting "value", driven carefully to Cars 'n Coffee once a month....that's a waste!

In case you missed it, this is a closed course privately owned road that a group of us rented. No two-way traffic.
Well said. My wife and I run hillclimbs on the other side of the country in eastern PA. She bounced her 135i off a guardrail this past weekend. Stuff happens, and it is much better than having it sit in the garage! I give you a ton of credit for using the 1M for what it was designed for.

Sorry for the hijack but here is what one of our hills looks like, Pagoda Hillclimb in Reading, Pa. We run a longer version in August where it continues for a mile after the finish here.
