The Club Race Outing was held on Saturday, April 9 at VIR.

It was a very busy weekend, there were almost no parking spaces

available. The place was alive with vintage cars, formula 2000 cars,

formula Fords and BMW racecars. The weather did not cooperate

- it was freezing. We had 40 people at the Outing and another 6

joining in for the Parade laps. We had over 20 cars in the corral but

there was not a lot of fun and fellowship around them. Likewise,

there was not much visiting over cold drinks with racers signing

autographs. The weather, however, could not dampen the excitement and enthusiasm of the Parade

Laps. Everyone was all smiles as they came off the track, many asking if we were going to do it on

Sunday as well. Thanks to all who helped out in the rain, but a special thanks to April Curtis, Karen

Seymore-Blood, Pam Hinkley, Sam Wood and Shane Dunlevy. We plan to repeat this event next year,

but here’s hoping we have better weather.

It’s pretty much a fact of life that modern cars

are loaded with electronic gear. There are black

boxes under the hood, inside the passenger compartment

and who knows where else. They control

or assist in not just fuel delivery, ignition, braking,

traction and other operational functions, but provide

the driver with a host of amenities – remote

door locks, climate control, communications,

roadside assistance and what have you. In fact,

they are so much a part of our vehicles that we

hardly ever give them a thought.

As an aside to this, there’s a funny – and true

– story illustrating our utter dependence on these

electronic aids in our cars. Some time ago, a

friend of mine saw this young lady standing next

to her car. She was distraught, near tears in fact. It

turned out the battery in her key had died and she

had no idea how to unlock the car door. Imagine

how delighted she was when my buddy pointed

out that she could still get in by unlocking the

door the old-fashioned way – i.e. sticking the key

in the little slot on the door and turning it! Okay,

so maybe it’s an extreme case, but it makes my


Even an alien visitor from another planet

couldn’t fail to become aware of this in short order.

If nothing else, our TV commercials and magazine

ads would apprise him or her (or it) of how

dependent on all this gear our vehicles (and us

chickens) have become. Consider this recent ad

in Scientifi c American, which says the advertised

vehicle – which happens to be a Lincoln MKX –

“can upload your photos, fi nd your music and automatically

download your contacts. It’s not just

luxury. It’s smarter than that.” Or maybe there’s

the commercial for Mercedes-Benz, which touts

the car’s ability to warn the sleepy driver who

PAUL HOECKE Notes from the road

Technology Downsides

is about to drift into another lane, or brake for

a semi that’s come to a sudden stop before the

driver becomes aware of this unexpected hazard.

But you knew all that, right? The vast majority

of the BMWs you and other club members drive

today are that smart. So why am I preaching to

the choir? It’s because, like all good things, all

this technology may have a downside. It’s a yinyang

thing – there’s a dark spot in the light part

for everything.

What fi rst got me thinking along those lines

was a commercial – for a Chevy Cruze, I believe –

which has these two dudes call one of the guys’

wife and ask her to demonstrate once more how

the remote start gizmo works. So she goes ahead

and fi res up the car – except she’s miles away,

about to board a plane at the local airport! Naturally,

my fi rst reaction was: Hey, that’s pretty cool!

But then my paranoid self got into the act. What if

someone did this inadvertently while a kid was in

the car? Worse yet, what if some bad guy got hold

of the remote? To say that would be a real bummer

would be an understatement.

Getting back to my paranoid self, I’d normally

be loath to raise this issue, mainly for fear of being

laughed out of the room as a pre-Boomer

Luddite. But as someone once said, even paranoids

have enemies. And as it turns out in this

instance, I’m evidently not alone in harboring

these concerns about the vulnerability of our cars’

electronic innards.

According to a story in that same issue of

Scientifi c American cited earlier (June 2011, p.18),

our cars are indeed likely to fall prey to hacking.

Titled ‘Hack my Ride’, the article’s sub-lead says:

‘Increasingly sophisticated onboard computers

may put cars in danger of cyber attacks.’ It


then goes on to describe how two researchers, a

computer science professor at US San Diego and

another scientist at the U. of Washington collaborated

in an experiment to demonstrate this.

Using an unspecifi ed car’s own Bluetooth and cell

phone connections, they inserted malware that

“could have been used to co-opt the car’s computer

system, including its engine.”

As I see it, that’s pretty scary stuff. More importantly,

experts feel this way too. Olaf Henniger,

who does research at the Fraunhofer Institute for

Secure Information Technology in Germany, is

quoted in the article as stating that this experiment

“shows the need for security measures in

vehicular onboard networks.” I for one couldn’t

agree more.

The article cautions against panic, pointing

out that this experiment was just that – a trial run

that doesn’t necessarily mean all cars are suddenly

subject to network attacks. But it does raise the

specter of “the unending chess match between

hackers and security experts” having “found a new

fi eld of play.” And lucky for all of us driving our

The Editor’s Desk...

As you can see by our calendar, we have A

LOT of events this year (both Tarheel Chapter

sponsored and not). And, there are events to cover

just about any interest, from wine and cheese

to racing.

Since we are always looking for photos and

write-ups, and with no feasible way for Paul or

myself to cover all these events, we would love to

have you cover them for us.

All we usually need are a few photos and a

paragraph describing the event - what, where,

when, etc.

Hearing about these events directly from you,

our members, is very helpful to all of us - you

would not believe how, once the word get’s out,

these events grow. (Think Vintage at the Vineyards

- in year one I doubt there were 20 cars. Now they

count them by the hundreds!).

One of the biggest benefi ts of this Club are

the events and the majority of our membership

never ventures out to them. Let’s show them

what they are missing! -ed.

That Henniger guy and several coworkers

belong to EVITA, a group started in 2008 by BMW

AG, Fujitsu and others for the purpose of developing

a ‘security blueprint’ that carmakers can

use to make onboard networks more secure. The

project is expected to wrap up this year and is

expected to yield software that will “encrypt or

authenticate data exchanged within the car, with

other cars and with equipment on roadways.”

And other carmakers are also working along

those lines, claiming their cars are already secure

against many threats.

GM says their mobile app (presumably the

one referred to in that commercial I’ve cited)

never connects directly to their cars but instead

works through OnStar, which requires authentication.

And Ford has fi rewalled its SYNC system

against attacks and has kept its phone and fun

parts separate from vehicle control functions,

which gives me a little peace of mind, seeing as

how one of my cars is a Fusion. But I still can’t rid

myself of creepy thoughts about someone wheedling

their way into the brains of my rides without

my knowing it. If nothing else, I’ve picked up

plenty of talk on this subject on the Net.

One such red fl ag has to do with that ever so

convenient remote lock-unlock car key feature.

As the story goes, someone parked near your car

could use a remote reading device to detect the

signal that locks your car and thus be able to get

in after you’ve toddled off to the mall, with you

never the wiser – until you return and fi nd your

goodies gone – if not the car too.

Okay, so maybe that could be urban legend.

I can’t count the times I’ve been warned about

believing all the stuff you fi nd on the Net. But

having read the article I’ve just cited, I can’t be

blamed for wondering. And maybe you should be

wondering too.


BMW Car Club

Tarheel Chapter



It isn’t often that we get to watch two big

events at VIR back-to-back. But that’s what happened

this spring. Having seen our homegrown

track warriors battle with visitors and one another

– not to mention the weather – on our home track

in April, we were fortunate enough to return there

in May, to cover the pros in Round Four of both

the Rolex Sports Car Series and the Continental

Tire Sports Car Challenge.

It was an interesting experience, to say the

least. The races were a real treat, not only because

we don’t all that often see the pros compete

in our neck of the woods, but also because

we got to watch the BimmerWorld guys in action,

live and in color as it were. What’s more, it allowed

us to draw some interesting comparisons

between the whole pro racing scene – the level of

technical expertise; the general atmosphere and

inevitable hoopla; and the racing itself – and the

way our ‘amateurs’ (read: Club racers) do it. It was

enlightening and, in some ways, surprising too.

We won’t go into detail about the Rolex race,

other than to say that this big-bucks series lived

up to expectations. It included only three BMWs

– the Ganassi Team and Aim Autosport BMW/Rileys

in the Daytona Prototype (DP) class and the

lone Turner M3 that ran in the GT class. But they

acquitted themselves well, especially the Ganassi

and Turner teams, despite a rainstorm that made

much of that race a water sport spectacle of sorts.

If you were one of the many club members who

packed the Tarheel Corral at the track, you know

what we’re talking about. If not, you’ll get to read

the whole story in the ROUNDEL one of these

Twice is Nice


We feel the Continental Tire (CTSCC) race

deserves more attention in this context. For one

thing, the cars in this series’ classes – Grand

Sport (GS) and Street Tuner (ST) – are a lot closer

to what us mere mortals drive (relatively speaking

of course) than those high-testosterone beasts

in the Rolex group. Plus this race included a lot

more BMWs in both classes – ten in GS and eight,

plus four MINIs, in ST. And mainly, BimmerWorld

(BW) had two E92 V8s in GS and two E90 328i’s in

ST. ‘Nuff said.

The CTSCC fi eld was pretty big, even by VIR

standards: sixty-one cars, ranging from VW GTIs,

Civics and Mazdas all the way to Boxsters, Camaros

and Mustangs. A series of mishaps, either mechanical

or off-course during practice and qualifying

kept spectators entertained on Friday. Some

of those incidents were almost funny – speaking

from an onlooker’s standpoint, not the drivers’ of

course. In one case, a car spun in NASCAR, did

a 360 and ended up backwards into the tire wall

– whereupon the next car also slid off the track,

trundled through the grass and – get this – poked

its nose directly into the other car’s front! The

guy couldn’t have aimed better if he’d wanted to!

Fortunately, the entire event happened in slowmotion,

sort of, so neither driver nor the cars suffered

real damage (except to egos maybe). And by

the way, neither car was a BMW.

Despite all this minor mayhem, things apparently

got fi xed pretty quickly, as everybody

showed up for the race Saturday. Thankfully, the

weather stayed dry. When the green fl ag fl ew


shortly before noon, the crowd roared off to a

good start. The two BW V8s in GS had qualifi ed

near the front – James Clay (No.79) third and Bob

Michaelian (No.78) ninth – but Clay immediately

charged ahead and was running second by the

time the fi eld rounded Turn 1. He ran very well for

about the fi rst hour of the 2.5-hour race, sometimes

in the third spot, then back to second. But

then damage to his front suspension, apparently

due to contact with another car, forced him to pit

early. Despite frantic attempts by the crew, the

damage couldn’t be fi xed and No.79 was forced to

go behind the wall and out of the race.

This left Michaelian and co-driver Ken Wilden

with the job of carrying the BW banner for the rest

of the GS race. They did pretty well too, running

as high as fi fth during the fi rst half of the race. But

cautions – fi ve yellows in total that ate up some

27 of the 56 laps in the race – slowed the fi eld’s

pace at critical times, negating much of their pit/

fueling strategy. But they still fi nished in tenth

place – a small yet signifi cant improvement over

their showing at Barber.

Behind the GS crowd, the 36-car ST fi eld

proved a much tougher environment for BW’s two

entries – the No.81 328i of John Capestro-Dubets

(aka JCD) and Greg Liefooghe, who started 15th;

and the No.80 driven by Dave White and Bill

Heumann, the latter having qualifi ed 25th. Starting

that far back was only part of their problem;

both actually moved up a bunch of spots during

the fi rst ninety minutes or so, with No.81 running

with the GS cars in 22nd overall at one point.

But their efforts to hold onto their best positions

were hampered by those same cautions. Most of

those were caused by ST wrecks, starting with a

Civic that blew its motor on Lap 13, and followed

by the ST pole-sitter fl ipping and rolling over his

Porsche Boxster at Oak Tree. As a result of all this

mess, the Heumann/White team ended up taking

the checker in 14th place in ST, ten places up from

where they had started. JCD/Liefooghe fi nished

three spots behind them. And both fi nishes were

better than those at Barber.

All things considered, Clay felt greatly encouraged

by these results. He especially cited the

strong showing of the team’s GS entries. “After an

intense beginning to the year, where we started

from scratch with brand-new cars, we’re happy to

see how competitive our GS cars have become.”

We agree, considering the kind of battle it had

been, as evidenced by the dents and tire marks we

saw on both ST cars after the race. Steve Bassen

(who does BW’s bodywork) shook his head as he

inspected the damage, for he knew that he’d have

just one week to fi x it all before the team would

head to Round Five at Lime Rock on Memorial

Day weekend, followed by Round Six at Watkins

Glen a week later.

Due to deadlines, the Lime Rock race was

still in our future as we fi led this report. It’s likely

to have been quite different from the VIR event

because that venerable Connecticut circuit is a lot

shorter – 1.7 miles with only seven turns – with

GS lap times of under a minute the rule. As a

result, it’s the only CTSCC event in which the GS

and ST cars run in separate races; and car setup

as well as pit strategy must be adjusted accordingly.

As usual, we expect to cover this race and

the one at the Glen in future reports.

As we look back on this VIR experience, two

comparisons with Club Racing come to mind. One

is that, from a bystander’s standpoint, pro races

are a veritable zoo, even at a park-like, peoplefriendly

facility like VIR. It’s to be expected, what

with all the promotional hoopla and the legions

of spectators jamming every aisle, roadway and

hillside. But the contrast with the laid-back atmosphere

of a Club Racing event is quite striking,

even when there’s a large crowd of club members

watching a race. The other aspect is something

of a pleasant surprise: Checking the CTSCC race

stats, we fi nd that even the fastest qualifi ers

barely matched some of the best speeds we’ve

seen posted at Club races. If nothing else, it kinda

proves that you’re not missing much if you’re

strictly a Club Racing fan.

As far as local CR activity goes, we should

note that only a few of our hot shoes ventured to

more or less nearby tracks in May. This included

Jason Crist and Roman Lifson, who raced in a

small fi eld of a dozen cars at Sebring. They fi rst

paired up in Crist’s JP E36 M3 to win the enduro;

then each drove that car to a class victory in the

weekend’s two sprint races. Both drivers were also

entered in the much bigger race (53 entrants) at

Mid-Ohio, where Lifson was to drive his own IP

E36 M3. That race ran after press time for this report,

so that story will have to wait until our next

issue. The same goes for last month’s CR event at

NJMP, which at last report listed some thirty entries

but only one Tarheel – Dennis Pippy in M3T.

Local drivers were similarly absent from the

NASA scene, partly because the Mid-Atlantic

Region did not hold an event in May. The Southeast

Region did run a race at CMP April 30-May

1, but that event saw only two of our homegrown

racers take part. Jason Tower mixed it up in a 19car

Spec E30 fi eld, fi nishing in mid-pack in both

sprints; and William Goldfarb posted two victories

in GTS4, including one fi nish in second place
