    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Shitting is fairly standard. You won't die as a passenger on an MR night... If you're srs, get to the track Saturday evening and come have some hypothetical shits and giggles going sideways. You can even drive your s2K there, but just not go on track..or maybe someone else can drive it for you. Like me? That'd be perfect, thanks!

    Trying autoX first is good advise. I still got to try it. For sure this year.

    The MCO and BMW schools are the best value. You should register to a minimum of 2 or 3 full days before you can expect to solo at Bogie. Go at Shannonville after you had some schooling.

    Hope you don’t catch the diseases like a bunch of us has, first it will attack your wallet, then go after your family and possibly take your house too. Good luck!

    I've never been signed off to drive solo...no one stopped me when I went out by myself. Perks of being an organizer?

    everyone pushing autox.


    do you really think its relevant to open lapping?



    Every time I went to an autox... which was like 3 times there wasn't really enough speed to worry about lift oversteer and shit like that. only once did I spin, but I was going through some box shaped thing at full boost. I never cared enough to try harder at it because you just point and go.
    Open lapping is a whole different beast in my eyes.

    Yes, learning car control applies anywhere.

    Then you weren't driving hard enough. The point of any performance driving is to get to get the most out of your car/tires/self. Get right to the limit of available grip and try not to go over. If you didn't have to worry about throttle modulation or spinning, you're way under the limit.

    No, it's not the same speeds as lapping, but it's a cheap fix, and can be really fun when you're directly competing against your friends.

    Of course I do. and it shows, autox drivers pick up lapping quicker than any other novice. They already have their vision up, car control skills, understand weight transfer, ( they figured out how not to spin out in the box ) car prep, nerves are relaxed. They know how to not point and shoot and find the line, they're driving quick at 70 to 90km/h same as turns 5 /6/ 8 12 to 14 and quarry.

    all they have to do now is learn to be smoother, passing rules and which way the track goes.

    relevant to car control. Learning in a safe environment before killing yourself because you really don't know what you're doing and how the car will react is always a good idea.

    If you fail to see how it's relevant, that's too bad.
