Default My 335is vs n55 f30 ticket story - 02-18-2018, 03:31 AM

Was at a red light, and some younger guy in his f30 pulled up. He was with his girlfriend.. i heard a “yo sick car man!” I simply said thanks.. he started revving his engine, and i really didnt feel like going at it.. light turned green and i drove normally while this guy floored it to the next red light. I pulled up normally and i heard him say “lets go for it bruh” im like nah im good. Started revving his motor again and it got to me.. i put my car in sport, map5, trac off.. feathered my throttle to activate launch control. Light turned green, launched the car at 3500rpm perfectly. He still got me off launch but i quickly caught up and passed him, he kept going at it, and by the time i realized i was going 100.. i let off and next thing you know i see red and blue lights in my rear view. I shat my pants and just pulled over while the f30 caught up and flew right by me. I was in a crap load of trouble.. the cop pulled right behind me and asked “any reason why i pulled you over?” I said “ its pretty obvious officer, I was being a complete idiot..” “why were you racing? I got you going 95 on a 40 zone.” He told me to sit tight.. i sat there with my stomach turning. I felt horrible. I saw him looking at me from the mirror..he came back with the ticket and i saw he wrote 60 on the ticket and i felt a big weight get lifted off my chest. Guys, if you want to go at it, take it to your local track, have fun there, dont risk your or other peoples lives being stupid. Its just not worth the heacaches and troubles! Drive safe everyone and enjoy your BMWs!!


Best Regards,
Andrew

A good reminder as to keep racing to a track or closed event on a closed course. Glad everyone is okay and you're one lucky SOB he only gave you 20 over. Let us know how your next track adventure turns out.
