2012 Racing and a New Year’s Resolution

It’s a new year and a new race season is about to get started. One of my goals this year is to post more blog entries on the website. So bear with me as I give blog updates another try. The last one I did was back in 2010 and after that season I think […]


Merry Christmas from BMW

BMW has created a very interesting Christmas card this year with the help of their new M5.  I think this might be a great idea to try in one of the BimmerWorld race cars at some point in time.     Resembles a friction circle!   httpvh://youtu.be/Og7kdt1RVMw From our friends at Autoblog.com Bookmark on Delicious […]

The duo had plenty of pace and got as high as second in the race, but a gamble on […]


Wild Ride Part 2

Yesterday I believe I left off reporting most of the test day and the practice day action. Today I thought I would start with what we did after our practice sessions to prepare for qualifying later that day. With a whole afternoon of time to waste on Friday Bill and I headed to different spots […]


That was a Wild Ride

The home race for BimmerWorld and I was this past weekend at VIR. VIR is mainly BimmerWorld’s home track since it is 2 hours away form them and 6 hours away from me. Even with the difference in distance to the track this is one that I have been to a lot over the years […]


Coaching with some cool equipment

This past weekend I went down to Sebring to coach a couple of guys from the Florida area in their Porsches. With any coaching assignment I take with a several pieces of electrical equipment that I know every airport scanner in the US has to think is some kind of bomb or conspiracy to commit […]


Lucky number 13!

Dave White has put BimmerWorld on the pole for the first time in the Continental Tire Challenge. Congrats to him for a job well done. It is amazing to see this happen because Dave was struggling all weekend to find the speed. He studied his data with James and they went over it time and […]


4 Days in Alabama

And we are currently working on Day 2. Since I have been slacking on keeping up my posting for this blog I will try to do some more updates this weekend as we go. Today was a good day. It poured rain on us this morning and luckily there wasn’t a session planned for us […]


Porsche Vs. BMW part 2

Porsche Vs. BMW. This is a heated debate between the supporters of each of these key marques in racing. If you are a BMW owner you appreciate the Porsches because they are made in Germany and they are fast on the race track. But when the BMW supporter is on the track with a Porsche […]


Porsche Vs. BMW

As promised here is my post talking about the difference in the Porsche to the BMW. In the case of the Daytona weekend where I went from a Street Tuner BMW in the Continental Tire Series to a Rolex spec Porsche GT3 Cup car this is really comparing apples to oranges. They are both so […]


Tomorrow starts at 10AM

So my busy day tomorrow starts at 10AM with the first Rolex practice of the weekend. Last I heard I think I am taking the Autometrics Porsche out first tomorrow morning for a shakedown and to bed in the goodies on the car. After that I will have a session in the Continental Tire ST […]

Track finally is green

The Rolex series just finished up their practice seesion. I believe this is the first one most of the cars have been out on track today. With the cold weather and sleet this morning it has been a tough day to get anything productive accomplished on track. It still looked really slippery out there. The […]

Daytona gets this Cold?

Did I mention that Daytona is supposed to get some possible snow flurries tonight? That is what Accuweather says on my iPhone. Who knows but I never thought Florida was supposed to be this cold. Although it is warmer here than it is back home. Well enough about that and one with the racing info. […]
