Default Re: M3 S50B30 in Japan

Still need a couple of posts to catch up on the rest of the year, so let's go ahead...

So after the nice cleaning session, last June I went to try the car in Ebisu Circuit for the "famous" Grip Matsuri : 2 days of open pit track action in a very nice circuit hidden in the mountains!







The new setup with those tires, the proper geometry and those brake pads is just awesome. The car is super sharp, brakes very well... You can toss it in the corners while on the brakes, it will gently pivot and then you just floor it to unleash the 286hp and it will jump out of the corner in anger! Love it!

So I managed to run 4 sec less than my last time in Ebisu, and I can finally be (much) faster than our 318is race car, which feels nice, as the M3 is still a very tame road car

Then in fact I did not touch the car for the whole summer as I had to travel a lot for work, then for holidays, then for work again...
I took the opportunity of a trip in Germany to drop at the Nürburgring, and allow myself a couple of laps in a rental car : E36 of course:







(sorry, big pics again)

And a video, with the instructor

This circuit is amazing, I really wish I could go more often!

Then I also went to the Goodwood Revival, but I am not sure that will interest many people here. Anyway one of the best experience in my life:


More to come on the M3 soon...

Oh, I'm sure Goodwood would interest most people here.

Great video, thanks for sharing, reminded me of my fun times at the 'ring. Your instructor was very good actually, much better than the one I had!

Was that a McLaren on the back of the truck?

Thanks! Well Goodwood is as awesome as it seems, really... I want to go again
That would deserve a specific post, so just a few pictures:










My Nürburgring instructor was very nice actually!
This circuit is quite overwhelming when you go on it for the first time, I never experienced that before, so I really believe seeking for some help like this at the beginning is good.

It was indeed a McLaren on the back of the truck, on my first lap it was planted in a rail when I passed it... Poor thing.

Ah you went to the Nordschleife. Amazing isn’t it? I wish I could re-experience my first time there. It was everything in between crazy and utterly amazing.

Revisit it every year ever since.
