Thats right, the aim not to scrub all the speed off.

Depending on conditions your turning in around 85mph ish but have to have the car settled.

Indicated 145mph, which the datalogger confirms as 136mph GPS. One thing g I learnt from nearly 40 years of racing motorbikes is that their speedos aren't that accurate, especially at high speed. My 1504cc Hayabusa at a true 200mph was reading way past the 220mph max speedo reading lol. Some running top speed events would be very disappointed when their 200mph speedo readings turned out to be a true 170mph lol. www.200mph.org held many events at Woodbridge, I helped launch it.

Nice to meet you Matt. 2.54 for your first visit is very handy indeed.

2.48, short shifting in traffic driving like I'm cruising through town.

Haha, we were really good at it though, I seem to remember we were all offering advice as you were working!
I did help to repair your dodgy suspension though

Nice to meet you to Peter, your car looks great! Thanks for that, I think with a bit more time I could get it down to 2.50's. I guess I'll have to come back and give it another go!!

Looks like good fun!! I can see this becoming very addictive if I ever start!

Quite interesting lines compared to bikes... Much later apex on bikes to square off the exit.

Would anyone ever do a track day on a stock E92 M3? All these stories of brake fade make me worried... Especially into turn 1 after the pits!

I did Bedford and Brands in my completely stock e92 - it's doable and you just need to manage your laps, braking etc. You can definitely have fun.

I was at Bedford on Saturday in my SS2 E92. Almost stock - changed pads to RS19s, lines & fluid, and it was an epic day

Hahah you're forgiven on this occasion.

The photographer on Saturday was on form, I've seen some great photos on the MSV Photography page of all our cars.
