AW 1M at Spa!

Hi Guys, thought some of you might appreciate some pictures of my AW 1M at Spa last week. First time there, what an awesome track! Pictures were taken by Jochen from Frozenspeed, top guy.

I was there with my mountainbike riding the track(or a part of it). It's steep.

Thanks guys! I am running a stock suspension set up, but with Performance Friction discs at front and pads all round, as well as Akra slip on - which was on all the time Just got home after a track day at Gooodwood - conditions were amazing 15c, dry and no low sun. Car felt amazing on new Pilot Cups!

Are these tyres the semi slicks the same as fitted to the CSL? Did you go standard sizes? Any info on where you got them and costs?

Jezzer, these are the same tyres that were fitted to the M3 CSL. First time I have driven on the track with track focused tyres and the extra grip was amazing! Same size as the standard fit pilot sports, tried to get pilot super sports but they are on back order until end of June
