    I think it needs posting on a BMW owners' forum.

    205 doesn't need a large door
    Any day I wake up and don't have to go to work, is a good day
    Every day is a good day

    I just watched it again as well, yes it was tight but the BMW carbon fibre flare are more costly than my panels. Plus its not everyday you get a chance to pass a twin turbo M3 CSL!

    Thanks for posting that up, I really enjoyed the ride, and some really nice driving especially with the tight squeeze and the other one on the outside

    Thanks for the comment. The 10 lap race helped get the tyres upto temp as they were 130 laps old. The BMws came back to me, I gather they had they tyre pressure set too high and the tyres were going off. Both BMWs had over 400hp

    Just goes to show there's so much more to racing than hp. They definitely were not driving as cleanly either.
    I also liked that little save on the right hander, nice skate, that must have been fun!

    Here is another race from yesterday https://youtu.be/hiQiwvijjFQ
    Started further back, but passed some serious cars. Monaro 6l, Evo 7 drag down the straight and a tussle with a 3.5l Turbo Dolomite!
