Default Strom Racing Updates

I thought I would start a thread here in similar fashion to "Strom's Brother's M3" was before. I'll give updates as to what's going on with Strom Racing.

I found out today that my brother won the GTS2 class for Southern California NASA. Linky:

http://www.nasaproracing.com/results/socal_trophy.html

He's going to an award banquet tomorrow to celebrate. Very exciting.

He was also first in BMWCCA J-Stock for the Pacific division, and 3rd Nationally. J-Stock is one of the more competitive classes, so he is quite pleased with his first season. Another link:

Anyway, the BMWCCA season kicks off February 4-5 at Infineon. My brother and dad are very excited - they've been practicing the track a lot on GT4.

Strom Racing also added another E30 M3 to our stable. This one is white, and is #67. My dad drove it as a rental for a lot of last year. My brother will be driving it this year, and he is apparently faster in the #67 as compared to the #42 E30 M3 he drove last year. My dad will be in the red #42 this season.

I think they'll be updating the white car with BMW Motorsport stripes like the one Ivan posted in the House of Euro thread.

It's going to be a fun season. I'll keep you guys updated!

Damn, I've gotta make it out to some of these races this season.

Congratulations to your brother, man--that kind of win would be a dream come true for many of us!

Maybe we can go to a closer race and go nuts.

California Speedway - March 10-12
Buttonwillow - April 8-9
Willow Springs - July 8-9
Buttonwillow - November 10-11

We could barbeque and have fun. If it's the March, April, or November races, we could even bring tents and camp at the track.

I know there's one event where he might be testing a Speedvision World Challenge car in the B-Mod class. That would be fun to see as well.

California Speedway isn't far at all from me and Ray. I'd be down to have some peeps over afterwards, too.

At Infineon, my brother broke the track record for his class by 2 seconds. He also came in 1st in all the races. I'll post more information later, but here are the results:

Daamn. Strom Racing is a force to be reckoned with!

Infineon's gotta be such a blast, with all of its sweet elevation changes.
