Doing track days in a stock 986 Boxster non-S. My e46 is down being converted to a NASA PTE car for next year. Going to start reassembling the rear in a few days.

My Ride: 2002 E46 330i
Re: Share your track day pics/ video here...

I tracked my 330i HPDE with NASA MID-ATLANTIC a few weeks ago at VIR, OKTOBERFAST. The weather was terrible but I still had a blast. My very first session out and my last session both days were completely dry. I suppose it's good practice driving in the rain

2nd day on stiffer springs, 3rd day on R-comp tires (Continental challenge takeoffs), 6th day at Thunderhill, 3rd session of the day. (Wiped out one brake pad so 4th session was slow and mellow.)
I've decided my skills are not good enough to really appreciate R-comps and I need go back to sticky summer tires after these wear out or heat cycle out.

I relate to your frustration of catching higher-powered cars in the corners and having them pull you on the straights. I did a track day at Fontucky (AAA Speedway) a while back with my Porsche 944S2, and this Mustang Cobra driver wouldn't let me by for a full two laps, despite being on his bumper and flashing my lights repeatedly. When he got chewed out at the download session afterward (NASA event), he claimed he just didn't see me. Yeah, sure!!

Yeah some people just amaze me...

It was pretty hectic in the morning groups, but cooled down nicely after lunch. This video was actually a 29 min session. Third session was about 13, and the final session had to be 30-31 minutes. Fun stuff that last run.

Nice! Nice, clean lines, and you really don't see many stockish non-Ms at the track.

Here's my stockish non-M at laguna



And again on r-comps at thunderhill



I think I'm retiring it from track duty since it keeps chewing up mounts, but it was fun while it lasted.

This thread is broken. However, here is my contribution. First autocross this year with my newly acquired 318. Brushing the rust off and learning what lift-off oversteer really is.

Short trailer from a NASA NE event at NJMP Lightning. Featured car is an RX7 but the camera car I'm driving is a 325i Touring.
