Day Three (Part Two) - BMW Performance Center

Quick update before I stop for the night and take my turn behind the wheel.  We have approximately 500 miles to go this evening to Daytona, FL and the GPS shows us arriving at sometime after 1 am.  UGH!!!!!

Woody finished 32nd overall at the BMW Performance Center.  With the attrition and our finishes at CMP we have moved up to 26th overall.

Next, we met a gentleman by the name of Mike Forrester who either owns or manages a BMW dealership in Spartanburg, SC.  After discussing our plight with the brake warning light and what we have found or not found, Mike contacts a good friend and independent mechanic (Albert) who has an Autologic and can read the brake fault codes on the M3.  It is a simple brake sensor that can wait until we get home to fix.  It does not affect the brakes or their operation.  We can rest easy for now.  You too Suze.  Mike and Albert....HUGE THANKS!!!!!  You too Scott Hughs.

We link up with our friends from the Executive Inn and their news is not quite as good.  It appears there is more damage than originally thought and they must retire.  The car will be patched together well enough for them to drive home and then fix properly.  We will miss them and wish them a safe and speedy trip home.

Good night....more tomorrow from the high banks of Daytona International Speedway.
