project: BDR is a motorsports team and group of friends in the Washington, DC area. Our primary focus is autocross, but many of us also do track events. And all of us love cars.

BDR featured in Grassroots Motorsports!

BDR was mentioned in the November issue of Grassroots Motorsports. If you found our website through there, thanks for visiting!

My writeup of my Nurburgring experience is here: http://www.buttdynoracing.com/wp/?p=46

John, being a huge fan of GRM and having an extra couple of GRM magnets thanks to the fine people at NASA, wanted to take a crack at getting into the Letters section. So when he went to Germany to drive on the Nurburgring in a race-prepped 325i from Theo at rent-racecar.de he took the magnets with him for the photo op (and, of course, to intimidate everyone else on the Nordschleife with the power of GRM).

After getting back to the States, John emailed the picture to David Wallens, the editorial director of GRM. His response:

That’s pretty cool. Do we have permission to use that photo? David

John submitted the picture of the car with the GRM sticker, along with a brief writeup of the trip.

On newststands today!

The writeup ended up in the November issue of GRM, pictured above. It’s on page 35. Thanks to GRM for printing it, Jared for riding along (and helping with traffic), and Shannon for taking the picture. And of course my fiancee Gaynne for putting up with me. Finally, thanks to Friction for keeping me off of the guardrail when I spun. Much apologizing to Kevin Shivers, who was also with us. I did not give him a “not pictured is…” credit in the article. But here he is on the left, with Walter Röhrl (whose name I mis-spelled in the letter):

EDIT: The scan is up here.
