: I was travelling past that way before going on holiday for a week, and dropped in to the event for a good few hours. I didn`t take to the track which was partly due to my late arrival, and not being a car club member so would of had to pay more(not much though) AND my rear pads needed replacing soon.
: Anyway it was good looking round the cars parked up too. Got chatting to two M3 owner dudes - one had a 1988 Evo2 with about 17,000 km on it - WOW, I thought my 40k km was low.
: There were loads of e30 M3`s on the track and there were some quick guys out there. A lemon yellow M3 was holding off a e36 M3 quite easily - the e36 couldn`t get closer than about 5 car lengths each time they passed by me. Also some good race prepped e30 325`s there - two were very impressive. A few e28 M5`s, and yes a great little Z3 M Roadster - that was very impressive too.
: Also, if the owner of the white M3 who passed a black one(me) on the M4 towards Bristol is reading - "hello". Yes, I did notice you but not until you had gone past 8-) - had my music a bit loud.

I was also at the castle coombe day, hope you enjoyed it!
I took to the track for the first time ever saturday morning and was extremely slow on my first run (and not much faster in the afternoon)
still enjoyed it though & despite having tarox 40 groove front discs & pagid fast road pads , I suffered total brake fade after 5 laps.
Still a great day, i've never seen so many e30 m3's!
