BimmerWorld Has Mixed GS Results at Homestead-Miami

The Homestead Round Two race was difficult for the BimmerWorld team but progress in the development of the team’s new-for-2011 GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Grand Sport (GS) BMW M3s wasn’t expected to be easy. The duo had plenty of pace and got as high as second in the race, but a gamble on […]

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 […]

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.
