So Arek & Eric took me down to Florida to crew for them last week at the PBOC winterfest. It was absolutely amazing. They brought two cars - the #10 e46 and the #11 e36.

Schedule:
Wednesday: Practice in the dark (e46 & e36)
Thursday: qualifying + 6 hour enduro from 3-9pm (e36)
Friday: practice, qualifying, 1.5hr enduro (e46 & e36)
Saturday: practice, qualifying, 30min sprint race (e46 & e36)
Sunday: practice, qualifying, 30min sprint race (e46 & e36)


There was also lapping & instructor sessions every day. Well on friday, the guys told me to sign up for the lapping sessions the next day and to take their e36 race car out on the track. My response was :O, hells yes! They had race suits on sale (got a $1400 Sparco suit for $700 :):):) ), so I picked one up in the morning and was good to go!

Their tuner came with us too and he took the first session and gave me the last two. Here's a video from my 2nd session. This was my first time EVER on this track, my first time EVER driving this car.

The last lap in the video, I ran a 2:30 (seen on the racepack when I'm on the back straight). During the race, they were running in the 2:28s-2:32s. Best time in that car by them was a 2:25.6. I was super stoked to even be that close - with a bit more practise (and balls) I'm sure I could have cut another second or two out of my time :)

haha thanks guys! Yeah it definitely a memorable experience. These guys are super chill and a lot of fun to hang out with.

Jethro - yeah it was street car. I figure if you're in that group, you should be expecting it. If you don't like it, go back to beginner :)
