I received your email -- THANK YOU!

I am so swamped these days, literally up to my eyeballs managing event planning with my practice and other projects I'm working on. Sorry for my lack of responsiveness...

Regarding finding a booth for your car, your best bet would be to keep an eye on the growing list of vendors and see if any of them are suppliers for the parts on your car. Other than that I don't have any other ideas...

As far as helping out with the event goes, I really appreciate your offer. I will have a much better idea what will be needed as we get closer to crunch time, and I'd probably ask that you check in with Todd McWilliams as he is really my right-hand man the day of the event in terms of managing volunteers...

Okay, I talk to Todd every once in awhile so I'll ask him what he thinks I can help out with. I'm always there early anyway, so I figured I could help out. Maybe I could use me newly acquired SD BMW CCA VP position to gather some more CCA support.

We actually tried to get PTG there a couple of years ago, but in '05, we were able to have a car from TMS, TC Kline, 2 cars from Finlay and 2 cars from Automatic Racing.

In addition to the SigalSport Daytona Prototype, we hope to have a Turner car and my car should be there as well.

LUGGAGE EXPRESS TEAM SIGALSPORT BMW DINAN

RILEY DP CAR AND DRIVERS AT BIMMERFEST 2007!

Los Angeles, April 14, 2007: The Luggage Express Team Sigalsport BMW Dinan Riley Daytona Prototype currently racing in the 2007 Grand-Am Rolex Sportscar Series and winner of last month's Grand Prix of Miami will be on display at the 2007 Bimmerfest.

The 8th annual Bimmerfest will be held in Santa Barbara, California on May 5, 2007 at the Earl Warren Showgrounds and will run from 9:00AM to 4:00PM.

Bimmerfest is the single largest BMW event held in North America today bringing thousands of enthusiasts together to enjoy all aspects of the BMW world. Whether you are a lifetime owner, first time owner, perspective owner or just a fan of great German engineering, Bimmerfest is an incredible event to experience! Bimmerfest is the celebration of being a BMW enthusiast, whether through ownership or admiration. Now in its 8th year, Bimmerfest attracts well over 1,500 BMWs, 5,000 total attendees, 35 automotive related vendors and coverage by 7 major magazines! It is an experience that enthusiasts look forward to from the first day they can register online for the event until arriving and enjoying the day.

2007 Miami Grand Prix Champions, Bill Auberlen and Matthew Alhadeff, will be at Bimmerfest to sign autographs from 1:00 to 2:00 PM at the Dinan BMW booth.

"This is an outstanding event for the Luggage Express Team Sigalsport BMW to be involved with" announced Emmanuel Lupe, Marketing Director for Luggage Express Team Sigalsport BMW.

"We are racing BMWs since November 2005 and our team went from racing M3s to now racing the only Dinan BMW powered car in the Grand-Am Daytona Prototype class. Bimmerfest offers a great opportunity to meet thousands of BMW owners and to increase awareness of the Grand-Am Rolex Sportscar Series as well" declared Lupe. "Our goal is to invite Bimmerfest participants to join our team at the upcoming U.S. Sportscar Invitational delivered by Luggage Express at Laguna Seca Raceway on May 18-20, 2007. We are proud to carry the BMW colors in the Grand-Am Rolex Sportscar Series and our team and drivers look forward to meeting the fans at Bimmerfest on May 5th" added Lupe.
