Feb 21/22 2004 Track Event Phoenix

I just got back from Phoenix International Raceway and damn it was a fun event. I saw a couple of E46's but dont know if anyone there was from here. I met a guy who was taking pictures for a company called ARIZONARACEPHOTOS.COM and said he was from here but forgot to ask his member name. Good event tho, I sure hope to see more of you local members at some of these events. Next event the weekend of March 6th at California Speedway in Fontana. Come by and say hello I will have my own Garage so dont be shy we are all e46fanatics. Ill post pics in a minute...

Jeez, is that your car with the Dymag Magnesium Wheels? I'll bet those are light as a feather! Thanks for sharing the pics.

Dude the wheels are 15 pounds in weight. 18 x 9.5 I got them brand new from some guy on ebay who was hurting for money. I bought them for 1500 and I went into dymags web site and they want 1500 a piece so I think I made out well. And for those of you with bikes this company makes carbon fiber wheels just like those used in world super bike. www.dymag.com

his sig is the DTM series. The formula one of Touring car. In other words the best damn racing in the world, in GT cars. Some people like American Le Mans series But I think German Touring Car is the best. (DTM)

Hey!

I was out there too!

I remember seeing your car. I'm not sure who you met from AZ Race Photos. It was either Todd or Greg. If it was Todd he's Marvelphx on here and has the website www.my330i.com Otherwise, Greg I'm not sure if he has a screen name on here.

Yeah, I saw your car and came by it a couple of times, but I could never find you.

I was in an E46 M3 on OEM 18s. My car looked pretty much stock that day, except for the angel eyes and the harnesses.

I'm not really sure. I really only pay attention to the car in front of me and the next turn. Other than that, my mind is not really focused on anything else.

I do the track events in Phoenix, but I am planning a couple trips out to Cali, Nevada, and maybe even New Mexico for some track events.

I really want to run out at Fontana. And I am currently planning a potential trip to Oktoberfest for some track time out there.
