Just got back from my BMW autocross (archive)

I'll keep this short and brief. I just got back from my 2nd BMW auto cross and it was a blast.

They gave us a BMW X5 (4.4 Liter V8) to beat the hell out of on the track. I scored the 2nd fastest lap time of the day (not including the instructors -- 20.16 ). Some guy scored a 19.95, but he hit a cone . The instructors said I had great potential and driving experience.

The X5 is an awesome automobile... that's right automobile, not SUV. I couldn't in good conciousness drive anything else. Why you ask... well they did an emergency lane change demonstration with a Lexus SUV, a Mercedes SUV and a BMW X5. Both Lexus and Mercedes flipped (big time ) and the X5 didn't even flinch.

What a thrill! I'm going back next time it comes to the area.
