OctoberFast 2010 - Road America

Thought I would post this in the Great Lakes Section as well

Badger Bimmers hosted a 3-day driving school this past weekend at Road America, which is about an hour NW of Milwaukee. The weekend was balanced between classroom, parking lot exercises (i.e. slalom, lane change, emergency braking, etc) and 4 30-minute sessions with private instruction per day.

It was a lot of fun and we learned a ton of information around proper driving techniques, vehicle physics, finding the proper line, dissecting each turn of the track and overall high performance driving.

There was a huge turnout with mostly BMW, Porsche and GT-R's. They kept us pretty busy and I tried to take pictures when I had down time, which was far and few between - enjoy!

Quick video of 1 lap, available in 720p (excuse the occasional banter with my instructor):



Here I am rounding turn 5


Another coming out of turn 6
















This GT's license plate read "ENZOETR" - LOL

The Carrera GT and GT3 are owned by a husband and wife!

thanks man - 135/140 was the fastest that I had the nerve to go up to but I feel I could have gone faster. I could easily pull away from most cars in the straights. A lot of the GT3's and GT-R's were easily hitting 160 -170+
