Had a Blast in a Slow Car

Finally decided to grow a pair and take the BMW out to Hallet. And boy it was the right decision. It has taken around 1.5 years to finally get it to the point, sad procrastination, to get the car out. The last stint involved upgrades in brake fluids and pads as Hallet is notorious for destroying brakes. I needed a couple new tires as well.

This was probably the best day to go as well. There were practice, qualifying, and racing sessions going on at the same time for open wheel, GT1/2/3, and legends cars. It was fun to walk around the paddock and see all the tinkering going on. Grassroots racing is my new favorite.

Some notable cars that are ridiculously fast around a track and lapped me several times: Civic SI Type R, Big turbo WRX with active areo, boosted BRZ, Fox body Mustang with an Expedition engine swap, Nissan Maxima (All HP, had great tires and brakes), a Veloster N. Pictures were taken by the talented Tim Turner.
