I went driving on the Zolder track on the 1st of September. It was a blast, but the car ended up leaking all fluids some way (incl. brake fluid! ) and the carb was so badly tuned (probably clogged as well) we lost about 60hp by the end of the day... But still, what a great day it was!

Here are some pics:

putting speed holes in fluid lines is not a good idea Tri

I love this car. The grpahics are so 80's and it looks good on the track.

Car looks great, Zolder looks like such a great track I'm sure its a great laugh.

Tricord, I have been meaning to ask you, my Father used to race an E21 in the Kumho cahmpionship in the UK. When he brought his E36 to race he sold it to a guy in Belgium. He said at the time he was going to race it in the Young Timer Championship. I was wondering if you had heard of or seen a white E21 racing or Track daying it in Belgium. It's very distinctive as the engine is fitted with triple down draft webers. I would love to track this car down, as my farther has passed away I would love to see his old car again.

Yep the car may be dry on the road but the track seems to show all the niggling maintenace issues.
Just remember a bad day at the track is better than a good day anywhere else.

I think I've grown tired of the red centerpiece with "323i" marking. I'll replace it with a standard black one.

On a sidenote, I was crusing down the highway with the 320/6 yesterday at around 2am. So I decided to push down the pedal and cruise at 150km/h (close to 100mph). It was nice to have the six purr at 5000rpm all the way home

I agree, the red centre pieces look shocking, they remind me of the red graphics you used to get in the rear windows of ford escorts here in the 80's. The pinnacle of bad 80's taste It was the first thing I replaced on my 323, the standard black item looks much better, but I quite like the 315 style of having no centre piece at all, but the rubber seals on mine overlap too far to look neat.
I have been driving my fathers e39 528i and that purrs nicely at 5000rpm, but at little over 150kph but it isn't loud enough with the standard exhaust, unlike my 323 which howls!
