Official Bimmerfest Road Rally May Return for 10th Anniversary Event!
 
You heard it right! In one of our many meetings with law enforcement, I discussed the possibility of rejuvenating my favorite part of The 'Fest with CHP lieutenants. The good news is that I was given an indication that if it was properly planned, and if we would be willing to pay $ for CHP escorts, the Rally may once again be feasible...

:supdude:

Would anyone care to join us?

LeftCoastBias 05-06-2008 11:39 PM

would they suspend speed enforcements with the escort?

TeKNiC3 05-07-2008 12:03 AM

YES! Bring the OFFICIAL Rally back!

I'd be willing to join you -- once I get out of law school hell.

I keep missing the 'Fest by about a week. My last final is tomorrow. Missed 'Fest by five days this time around.

I would be down for sure.! i always loved that part of the fest, specially seeing hundreds and hundreds of BMW on the side of the road waiting for everyone else.

From back before Jon made an automotive mistake:

(A drive in the country with 200-300 of your closest friends)

that looks bad ass :)

EEEFFFFIN' YEAH! BRING THE RALLY BACK! It has been my favorite part of the fest (with the exception of the last 2)!

These are from 2005's Rally. About 99% of the cars in the pics are all BMWs:

I actually think you should charge as a way to discourage lucky579 from joining us.

I think he was referring to paying the CHP -- and then having that additional cost added to the overall cost of Bimmerfest (admission).

Or maybe not. LOL.

I'm not in touch with a lot of these new Bimmerfesters.
