    I'm down in NJMP or WG and probably 4-5 more E30 M3 from NYBMWCCA members.

      An E30 M3 only track day is somewhat optimistic as not that many owners are willing to put their car on track in a "non-parade lap" format. Track rental costs and insurance add up pretty quickly so it could be somewhat cost prohibitive.

        I think there are still enough who do track their cars that it would be easy enough to assemble enough cars to buy a single run group in some other club's event.

        I doubt it could be a BMWCCA event because of the DE nature and insurance, liability etc, but the precedent exists with other clubs who sell a run group inside their to an outside entity.
        I know EMRA and VRG have been doing this for a few years, and I think that some regions of BMWCCA Club Racing has been doing similar of buying a run group to put their club races in from a non-BMWCCA organizer.

        We would have to find some open track day / driving club(s) who were open to selling off one run group and ask about the financials and the particulars.

        Then you dont have to get enough cars to populate an entire event, track rental, ambulance, flaggers, etc. Just have to get enough cars to populate one run group (20-30-ish depending on track length).
        You are just buying 1/4 or 1/5th of the day.

          In a couple of weeks I'll be headed to my fifth track day this year. I'd love to be in a group with multiple E30 M3s. That would be so cool. As it is I am the only E30 M3 out there. Just not that many in the PNW - Portland area - and even fewer who track their cars.

            Happy to join but car isn't close to ready yet. Once it is - I will absolutely track it with anyone here. I don't see this car any different than any other E30 regardless of the market prices. But understand why some would shy away.
