Video from my 1987 BMW 325is SpecE30 race car. This is the Sunday Aussie Pursuit race of the NASA Mid South Region Memphis International Raceway event March 2-3, 2013. I qualified 1st in class with a 1:21.9. The race was setup for 25 laps, and I was starting 2nd from last with both of the other SpecE30s ahead of me. I got a good launch and was able to catch and pass both SpecE30s in the first 10 laps. I then tried to set some great lap times and set the SpecE30 track record at a 01:20.9 a couple laps before it all went downhill. I broke too hard in the final brake zone and locked up the tires heading for the wall. I got it turned and missed the wall, but I severely flat spotted my tires and it just got worse as I locked up my brakes going into the Ms multiple times. I decided to call it a day and not risk putting the car in the wall. When I got back to the pits the tires were worn down to the metal where the flat spot was. I finished 3rd out of 3 in the SpecE30 class.
