Is grass an "HPDE" surface?

Well, it's an "experience", that's for sure!

It is definitely not a recommended wet line in my book of instruction. Don't want to get mud on my clothes. Smile

Dude...she was an instructor by the time I punted her. FWIW, I did use the grass during that. It didn't help.

Great weekend with THSCC! Super impressed with the M3 in stock form. Didn't even put track pads on it. Remember to click 720p HD

Here's a little video from the Instructor group: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrGj6z5VPWc

And the obligatory Lambo pass: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzAO6b1vM7E

Apologies for shaky video. This is one of the cleaner laps in my M3, Thanks to THSCC for an excellent event.

I was running in blue group. First time I had E9x on track. Knowing Evan and the gang run 1:47s in their spec E30, me running 1:51 in E90 is pretty sad. I have plenty of excuses ready Smile
- Never tracked it before.
- Pilot Super Sport street tires
- No proper seats, which makes huge difference for me. My knee is sore from digging into the door.

Still was fun. Car is crazy fast. I just don't have the balls to push it much harder. I was rather timid on the throttle and did not run WOT on the start/finish straight most of the time. But I did run with DSC/MDM off the 2nd day.

HD on Smile

Agreed, great weekend at VIR. You couldnt have asked for better weather. It was also nice that our changes to the ole vr rabbit actually worked and made it much faster.

FYI look out yellow group here I come Mr. Green
