Cadwell park bmw novice track day 13th may pics

Well chaps this was my first uk track day i normally just go to the nurburgring.

the track was great and the compression on some sections reminded me of the ring.

i have only owned the m3 for about 4 months but have driven my fair share of them. so this was a good chance to give my daily runner a good blast round a dry and wet track.
the power flex bushes worked a treat keeping everything in shape, the good conti sp5's with the 10mm spacers on were super and it handled good even with stock spring shocks etc.

the only real let down were the brakes, they seemed to give up after 2 laps ther just had lost the feel and i managed to get one of the rears smoking.

even in the wet it was very controlled and very impressive.

keep your eyes open for next months total bmw mag for my review and images

now for some pics.

Looks like fun, a few worrying skid marks heading off the track in places though.

Cadwell is the UK's best track imho. It's also a great place to just wonder around, camp up in different corners etc. Especially that chicane that you posted pics from and also the mountain section.

I loved it and echo the ring comments - it's also very abrasive!

Was in my 645. I'm hoping to make NM4 but still not sure as it may clash with a hol.
