BMWCCA @Watkins Glen - June 2012

Guys, This is a bit overdue but wanted to share the experience, I took the 335d to the Glen this past spring and had about the most fun you can possibly have with your pants on. Highly, Highly recommended!


I'll spare you the pic by pic commentary...


Special thanks to:
  • Andre
  • Andrew (thanks for the 1M ride!)
  • JB Mike
  • Botond & Jamal
  • Will Z (instructor)
  • Patroon BMW CCA
  • anyone else I forgot...

BTW 335d does GREAT at the track...a little anemic in the backstretch but GREAT GREAT GREAT coming up hills and out of turns. My friends thought it was funny how all the high-revving gassers went screaming by, and the D just seemed to fly by without a sound...would've made a great commercial!

Andrew's gorgeous 1M...Which I got to ride around the track. This thing is a BEAST...felt like playing Super Mario Kart and getting a star!
