    My first race in my first BMW. Came from a FWD Honda, spent 3 days learning the ways of the M3. Of course, it wasn't without some "learnings"

    Very different, very different indeed. The transition wasn't as bad as I thought, but there was a transition. This is a very developed car. Lots of suspension goodies, brakes that actually work, and 100hp more. Since it drives from the correct end, I have to learn to manage the throttle more than before. The Honda basically had a binary throttle. You could mash it anywhere, point the front wheels and it would go. This one requires more of a gentle touch.

    It's ugly as can be now, but here is a pic from the event

    The Alfa was quick. SCCA E prod car running slicks. We were evenly matched on the first day. I stepped up my game and said bubbye

    Took the 328is project out to its first competition event. I set my new PB (which won class) in this final session, but on my last hot lap after fighting traffic for 15 minutes. Definitely not ideal, so its something I have to work on.

    First Time Trial event of the year. Never been to this track before. And this is my first timed session after scrubbing in new tires for 3 laps in the first session of the day.
