F82 M4 at Ruapuna - My trackday footage

Recommended Posts

Been a bit slack on sharing this...

First track day in the M4, featuring a pair of Lotus' owned by a couple that are regulars there:

 

And some better driving with a better angle on my 3rd trackday:

Used a video editor to add in some laptimes here.

 

Might do another one from my latest session in June if it's any good to watch.

Sounds solid and shifts nice :) So pardon my ignorance, but I don't hear any throttle blip on downshifts. Does that mean the car is running in full auto mode or are you using the paddles for shifting ? Maybe if the car is stock the engine noise is just too well muffled for the mike to pick up down shifts ?

I never raced at Ruapuna but I spent a lot of weekends watching the racing there when I lived in Chch.

Cheers...

It's in manual mode and I am using the paddles.

Yes it is stock and on the quiet side at lower revs. I disabled the piped-in engine noise using a BMW coding app and the car is quite insulated inside so you don't get much engine noise at low load. In all but the tightest corners I find it better to ride the low-end torque in 3rd rather than rev it out in second, so that also doesn't help :) Car has enough torque down low that I still need to modulate the throttle until it's straight so at some points it doesn't even sound like I'm accelerating when I am.

In some sessions I cracked open the windows a little but this also brings in some wind noise. Maybe I should re-enable the piped-in engine noise, it's a bit phoney but it's fun haha.

Nah... wind noise is what ruins most in car videos... especially when the driver is trying to tell you how great this or that car happens to be. I was only curious to hear what the downshifts sounded like. If you have a spare Gopro stick it in the engine compartment for an experiment... that should be interesting :)

Cheers...
