It’s on! Registration opens at 7pm tonight
Join us for a Pre-Season Test & Tune/Open test and practice day at Marina. This is an open format event that will run from 8am until 5pm. No run groups or car classes will be assigned, just plenty of opportunity for tuning, practice, and of course fun driving!
We will offer two exercises:
1) Figure 8/Skidpad/Oval (multi-purpose exercise)
2) Mini autocross course (approximately 40s)
The Figure-8 is an excellent exercise to explore over and understeer, skid recovery, throttle and steering smoothness, trail braking, vision, and braking smoothness. It is not for practicing drifting or burn outs.
The mini-course will include various elements you can expect to see during a competition event. The timing equipment will be set up with the display at the finish so you can run the course and see if your tuning and driver tweaks are making you faster.
Event cost is $50 and $5 for an optional sandwich lunch.February 7, 2013 at 8:47 pm #1449
Very good. If someone wants to try my car, $12 a run on the course. Bring lots of money cause you will want more B)

I have the white 1987 325is with the engine from a 1998 M3. I towed it up last season with my Toyota 4Runner.

The other is a plastic part from the front lower area of a BMW…
#5 in the diagram was found on the figure-8 exercise. I have it stored in the trailer, so if it’s yours and you want it back, get in touch.
Based on the part number it belongs to one of the following vehicles:
