Mein Auto: BMW X5 / BMW K1200LT
BMW Ultimate Driving Experience - NJ

Went to the event today. Had a great time with some drama. Took a convertible 4 series for a ride and hit a rock in the middle of the road and blew out the front tire. Sorry about that BMW. A lot of construction around the meadowlands and a brick or a rock fell off a dump truck. Glad it wasn't my truck. I spent enough on repairs in the past year.

The video is a from a practice run. Shot with a gropro. We had ideal track conditions. So good in fact, that me and 1 other guy did the race lap in under 28 sec. So we were told we broke the track record



I finished 2nd. The guy that finished 1st was in a car club that races on the weekends, trained at Skip Barbers and went the BMW driving school in Atlanta. Came up from Philly for the event. Not sure I would consider him an amateur. I watched him drive earlier in the day and told my daughter that is the guy that I need to beat. Turns out I was right. He had finished 1st with a 27.2 big gap from my 27.7 Most people were in the 29 and 30+ range.
