The UMass Motorsport Club would like to invite you to our annual car show, on Saturday, May 12th, 2007.

Summary:

This event is our own version of an awesome car show. It will be a day filled with incredible cars, a chance to show off your ride, loads of opportunities to win trophies (with or without a ride), and view some of the more rediculous events in motorsports. You'll also have a chance to meet club members and talk to some of the premier gearheads on campus and in the surrounding area. Parking is every other space and everything on wheels is eligible for awards (If you bring a tank or hovercraft we'll make exceptions). We'll also be bringing in as many vendors as possible ranging from food to performance parts and racing shops. Read on for specifics.
