Black 335i at Brands Hatch today - Anyone Here??

I was at Brands Hatch today with Focused Events doing a bike track day on my Suzuki GSXR 1000 K8 and noticed a rather nice looking black 335i with 335 in its number plate - just wondered if it was anyone here??

Yeh i know they do matey but sometimes i wonder whether people might think you were up to something dodgy etc?? Anyway - it looked cool and maybe someone on here knows whose it was - as i said it was a black 335i with "335" on its plate.
Yep - the bike track day was awsome - nice dry day, occasional sun, good track temp and not too many idiots!! I did a session with 2 cameras strapped to the bike (front and rear facing) and did a couple of really hot laps - will be getting the video over weekend so looking forward to seeing it!! My last session though i had a HUGE moment which was inches from being a very nasty high side - back end came right round on me and i have no idea how i recovered from it. The guys behind me enjoyed it though!!!

Sounds like you had some good fun today

Carlos your perfect plate would be BMW335D or you could always have DXB335D, just how fab would that be?

Or

Boo - apologies for this being a little off topic - but i do quite a few track days on my bike/s every year - mainly Brands Indy & GP, Cadwell, Donnington in the UK and ive done Valencia, Assen & Nurburgring a few times also. If any e90 members have bikes and fancy joining me on a track day they are more than welcome. Im doing the Nurburgring on my bike in a few weeks time. But we must try and organise a UK track day for the cars - im gagging to get my 335i on a track!!!

Boo - if you ever want to swap the M3 for one of my bikes for an hour or so you are always welcome!!! Just note though that the only DTC of any kind is in the lap of the gods and your right hand!!!
