Earlier last month I revisited Road Atlanta for the Spring DE with the Peachtree Chapter of the BMW CCA.  This was my second time out with this group at Road Atlanta, last fall being my introduction to this amazing track.


The weather really cooperated for this weekend, with cool temps and sunny skies.  The track surface seemed pretty decent, though I couldn’t seem to break my previous best of 1:47 in the ’98 M3.  I seemed to plateau in the 1:48s, but not for lack of trying.  I’m sure there’s a second to be found, but it would take a near perfect lap.  I’m at the limits of grip at several points on the course.  I could use a little more front grip as well, I forgot to try playing with the front sway bar (not even sure what stiffness it’s at now.)

I also linked up with another track junkie from Texas who I had run many tracks with.  It was great catching up, though there was no catching up with him on track.  I also got to put a few of my Christmas presents to use.  We set up the 12’x12′ canopy to grant a little shade and grilled out for lunch both days on the portable propane grill.  All in all another enjoyable time at Road Atlanta and no blown power steering lines to boot!


I didn’t grab a whole lot of video and a few times the GoPros failed me, but here’s a full session from Sunday, 8 March 2015 in the A Group:
