    Welcome, guys. A V8 E30 sounds like a great daily driver.

    Name: Serdar Gurhan
    Home: Cedar Grove, NJ
    Car: 2001 BMW e46 325ci, 1990 BMW 325i, 1984 BMW 318i Ford 302 swap
    Experience: Multiple autox events, HPDE events at NJMP
    Favorite tracks: VIR, COTA Even though I've never driven them

    First car was my e46, a hand me down from my father. It was the car that got me into tracking and Autox, i worked on it starting at 13 years old until I was 17 ( maintenance/ suspension/few power mods) and just drove it for a year and a half until this previous summer when I gutted it and depinned 25lbs of wire from the harness. Plan on welding a full cage this spring, putting in a metal plate lsd, and machining my own solid bushings (hobby machinist/welder). My e30 325i (first car I actually purchased) came from California as an automatic, when I was 16 I swapped it to manual with a LTW flywheel and HD clutch. Since then I have installed Ground Control Coilovers and ST Swaybars along with 225/45/15 tires. My most recent purchase was an e30 318i which I have 302 swapped and is going to be my daily also on coilovers, solid bushings, and a few other good things.

    Hello all,
    I drive a 2006 Lotus Elise and do some track time. Started in the late 80's driving an Alfa GTV6. Always looking for good information.

    Hey Ed, I also live in Gainesville, GA! It's not too bad being halfway between road atlanta and atlanta motorsports park.

    New here...

    I'm a NASA DE3 driver with my '91 MR2, a stripped, caged, track only N/A motor car I've been 'improving' since '08. My track experience is mostly Road Atlanta, with many track weekends, and also Roebling Road, AMP, and CMP. This July I am going to Rockingham with NASA, my first roval. I usually flag or work at every Road Atlanta NASA -SE event I don't drive at, but have suffered some car problems and knee problems which have cut down my participation. Kinda wanted to see what else is out there.

    New member here,

    Came across trackhq through google and found a lot of useful information. I have been lurking for the past few months. I just started getting into tracking my m3 a few months ago and I'm hooked- already done 6 events in 2.5 months. I'm trying to improve as a driver and hope to be able to learn a lot from being a part of this forum.

    Been lurking for a while

    Howdy all,

    My name is Matt Steele. By day I make cartoons and by nights & weekends I like to go real fast and stuff.

    Been doing HPDEs and TTs for a couple of years now, and did years of karts before that. I'm also an avid sim racer (pCARS, rFactor, iRacing.) Got the bug from my granddad who used to race road cars and hydroplane boats in Georgia.

    Cool forum here. I'll be sure to join in the conversation more often than I do right now.

    My track car is a 2006 Porsche 911 C2, stock with Michelin PSS street tires.

    Here's some eye candy:

    Howdy all. First post to introduce myself!

    Name: Bryan
    Home: Alameda, CA
    Car: 2014 Evo GSR, 2014 Fiesta ST
    Experience: HPDE, Instructor, my dads firebird when I was 7.
    Occupation: Lead Designer @ Adobe
    Favorite tracks: Thunderhill

    Somehow I didn't know this site existed but somehow I happened upon it and now here I am.

    Short history:

    What started it all, my fathers sweet firebird:



    I was a heavy track event attendee from 2004-2009, mainly Thunderhill but also Buttonwillow. Instructed for a couple years.

    I tracked a WRX for a bit, then a 2005 Evo, which started out mild...





    Then got a little more serious with R compounds, TC Designs roll bar, suspension, melted 4th gear twice, went to a 5 speed, yada yada...

    Track events mainly @ Thunderhill. My best there at the time was 2:02









    ...Then hung up my track gloves from 2010-2014, because life. BUT, started up again in 2014

    I started again in my 2014 Ford Fiesta ST, which was fun, but I ended up not liking it on track and it seemed silly to track it as I also had a 2014 Evo GSR. (Which I said I would never track, ironically).



    Now I am back again in the Evo 10. Slowly getting my track legs back, taking my time, taking it easy. Best of 2:07 @ Thunderhill on street tires but I had some fuel starvation problems at the time.

    Latest round of mods are Ohlins and NT01's so itching to get back to the track.







    I also used to tune Evos @ GST Motorsports but now I just tune my own vehicles.

    Anyway, that's me, the short version.
