LapTimes for Stock E46 M3 @ Summit Point?

Anyone ever time themselves or have a general idea for laptime for a stock E46 M3? STOCK as in down to stock tire sizing?

I may want to try running the new car in TTC, but not sure where the thing would end up timewise. If anyone has run a stock (or close to stock) E46 M3 at Summit, what kind of laptimes were you pulling?

I ran 1:48 on the Shenandoah circuit last June on stock tires.

Main circuit or Shenandoah circuit?

Probably a useless data point, but on Summit Point Main I ran a 1:34.6 in a modified 330i ZHP (r-compounds, square setup, LSD, headers/exhaust, intake, dyno tune), but I should probably still be a little slower than a stock M3.

It was Shenandoah. I didn't get a chance to run at Jefferson or the main. I hear they're fun though. And yea the Shenandoah is a lot more technical than the main. I ran 1:48 on my first lap (after warm-up caution lap) and my instructor didn't want to keep timing after that. He said he didn't want it to get to my head and make me try too hard on my first track day lol but I had a lot of fun
