SMG II Not For Track

The car has 54000 miles. Had the SMG fluid changed two years ago and hydraulic pump replaced () 18 months ago. The venue was at the new and challenging The Ridge Motorsports Park

The instructor tried to get the SMG to shift smoothly but no luck. Anyone who had not driven on the track before had an instructor regardless of skill level (intermediate in my case). The shifts were made before turn-in, track out, and on straightaways. Having drove manuals before it felt like I am able to shift smoother and faster than the SMG.

BTW the track event was organized by the Puget Sound BMW CCA.
I do appreciate the input from everyone.
