If he really wanted to make himself better he'd be starting out in a n/a NA.

That's what I thought. I'm all for anyone actually getting into actual racing, but totally skipping the learning process of the amateur stage and going straight to a boosted and gutted m3 race car is idiotic. Like he's got some entitlement because he portrayed a car mega douche in the movies.

I assume this is one of his first sessions on the track because aside from the front-stretch and back-stretch...this dude is a wreck and dangerous. I guess I can give him respect to the fact that he's driving a 700whp 3500lb (lol) racecar with huge rubber and aero. I won't give him **** for going off in #9 either because that corner is where men are made...but homeboy needs to roll around that track a few times in 4th gear and figure out what's going on

i guess being in a movie about street racing really means you can't drive.

If I were an instructor in his car and he took that line through 9, I'd ask to get out.

FYI, his first lap was a 1:32 and I've been around that track in 29.1 in my Miata, so I get to talk ****

He probably over revved in it a prior session

While the Mini was pretty wicked, everything else about that video was gay.
