    Happy to report that the car competed admirably. Running street tires (toyo t1 sport) made finding the cars grip limits easier and it was great feeling how controlled it was at its edge. A little under steer was easily corrected with some throttle. This was my first event since 2015 and it was awesome. I was the second fastest e30 in the entire group, finishing at my personal best of 52.034. (I was one of 2) Top time at the course was seconds by an m10 powered e30 with NT01. Overall, this has been the best bimmerfest I have gone to in my 10+ years attending. The autox crowd was very friendly complimenting my car and offering ride alongs. This part of the event definitely housed the more performance minded enthusiast versus the show/stance crowd and for that i will be attending bimmerfest as an autox attendee as long as they have it.

      Thank so for posting this. I flew into San Diego for the weekend to purchase a VW bus for my daughter. After seeing this I took the drive to the track today and spent a good part of the day there. Perfect day to see some great cars.

      Got to love the southern Cal weather. Flying back to Boston tonight. It will either be 90 degrees or snowing there when I get back.

        Its that time again! Bimmerfest 2019 is this weekend.
        I will be participating in the autox on Sunday May 26th.

        Come hang out at the autox lot with me. I will have a pop up tent, my car, and my significant others' Red mini cooper.
        Passengers can ride along with me
        You do not need to participate in the autox to park in lot 6. The lot should have ample space and the group is more enthusiast oriented.

        I also should note that there will be Time Attack cars competing on the big track on Sunday. So if you get bored of parking lot racers, you can see some pretty amazing machines in the main paddock area.

        Hope to see some of you there.

          Did the Autox again this year and there was one other E30 M3 there. Black with gold Basketweaves.
          I wasn't able to speak with the owner, but I am glad he made it out there.
          Sunday crowd was a bit smaller which allowed for more runs, so that was fun.

          Only thing that bother me was Alfa Romeo sponsor they got...
          People were allowed to drive some of the newer alfas (for free) on the autox course and disrupt the flow of paid drivers!
          I wouldnt have minded if the people actually drove the cars aggressively, but most just drove like they were in a parking lot.

          All in all, fun trip. Heres a small video my cousin shot:
