I can't say enough good things about Adam. He has been my enabler right from the start of my track experience. I remember his admonition in my first drivers meeting to us first timers where he said something to the effect of "for you new guys I have a cautionary warning...this is a gateway drug". Boy, was he ever right in my case. I am a hopeless junkie. Three to four weekends every month. If there is an event somewhere in Florida I am there. Thanks Adam.

NOTE: Pictures uploaded out of order

So my brother-in-laws (all the tall ones), myself & a friend went to the track event on Friday night and had a blast. None of us had been on a track before, and 3 of us are car nuts. In the group photos I'm the one in the black shirt.

It wasn't very crowded and only 4 cars were out on the track in each group. Due to COVID, you followed the instructor in a Lead Car, and he talked to you via walkie talkie in the car. We started out with M340is, M235i, and a X3 40i. You get around 4-5 laps each session. The next group was the M2 Comps & F80 M4 Comps (M4's had the CCBs). The 3rd group there were 3 F90 M5 Comps (2 w/CCBs) and an M8 Comp (w/CCB). The final group you had the X3 M Comp (i had my switched to another X5 due worn brake pads), 2 G05 X5 Comps, & a X6 Comp.

We all had an absolute blast. I hit 151mph down the straight in the blue M5 (pictured below & now I need this car too!!) with a light drizzle and the car just wanted to keep going, but ran out of room & was up the car in front of me's ass.

The most fun for me was taking out the M4 Comp (as I want an F80 as my next car) and coming out of the final curve into the back straight. I'd left the curve in 2 gear, was pulling through 3rd, and then as I'd leveled out on the straight, shifted into 4th, and lost traction for a quick sec around 115mph, regained it and planted the power down. An absolute blast.

We all had so much fun. 12/10, would do it again every single year! Also got the sweet BMW head-socks you see us wearing and a nifty blacked out BMW metal water bottle.

I'd highly recommend doing this if you get the chance. We all signed up the moment the April 30th slot became available. One of my BILs was wait-listed, but they added him. He's not a big car guy, but now he wants a M2 lol.

Thank you. I'm keeping an eye on the July dates.
Question for you (as I'm totally new to this): do you register guests once the site sends the confirmation email? or should the guests register on the page too?

I think the guest register on the page, but am not sure. We didn't have any guests ourselves.

Sadly no. I literally checked every single day for a month straight (in Feb.) when I was trying to register for April.
