Well worth it...it's an incredibly good school (tax receipt too, as this is education).

Very tempting indeed! A little too worried about the stress it would put on my old turbos though.

No more stress than driving on the street. Run sessions are short enough that I don't run into any heat issues on the Castrol track (unlike Calgary's Race City Speedway, with its half-mile straight at full throttle).

If you're worried, run the 128i as opposed to the 335i.

When the full track is in use (late on day 1, and all of day 2), it's run clockwise. The car control clinic will be in the paddock area, and exercises will be on sections of the track (early day 1).
