Do bring a bottle, if you decide to make the trip, and you shall be properly reimbursed and treated at the bar.

Met with Mr. and Mrs. Bemo at Lime Rock yesterday to go over the details of the trip and check out some of the placed we will be visiting,

These are the preliminary plans and details wiil be posted shortly.

This will be a two day event (Saturday and Sunday) and some may want to arrive Friday night,

The Wake Robin Inn in Lakeville, Ct. is reserving a block of rooms until the end of August. We will be able to book one or two nights. Alternately rooms can be booked at the Iron Masters Inn which is a motel down the road. A bit less elegant but also slightly less expensive. Both placed serve complimentary breakfast, Friday night dinner will be at the Boathouse Restaraurt in Lakeville which is a 5 minute drive from either loction.

Saturday morning arter breakfast we will drive to Lime Rock and meet in the Sunoco Paddock at Lime Rock which will be reseverved for us. We will stop by the Lime Rock Club Clubhouse and then head down to Michelin Tower (the timing tower). We will raffle off Hot Laps with one of the Club Instructors in the Clubs M3. We will then have a brief tour of the track. Lunch will be at the Lime Rock Cafe (which is nothing fancy - burgers, sandwiches, etc.), We will then head out for a drive on some of the areas scenic roads, stop for a picture taking opportunity at "Captain Audio's Driveway" (Housatonic Meadows State Park) and contintue on to the Falls Village Inn for dinner, The Falls Village Inn is going to prepare a Prix Fixe menu with several menu choices and we will have our own private room.

Sunday morning after breakfast we will head to Winsted CT. (we will pick some scenic road) for a private tour of The American Mural Project and then we will all head home.

The Falls Village Inn will give us a Prix Fixe dinner with several menu choices (meat, poultry, fish, veggie, etc,)
The only requirment is that we will have to make our individual choices in advance.

Updated details of the event are in post #1

Please post in this thread or PM me as you firm up your plans so I can keep the list current.

The links for booking accomodations are in post #1 as well

Captain - Zooks is confirmed so remove the asterisk from his name. Also texted back and forth with lqaddict and he'll be chiming in this weekend, still confirmed so far....


I have attached some pics from our first scouting mission, to keep the thread alive

As far as I'm concerned, if it's just you and us, we'll still go through with the plan. At that point, I'll raffle and certainly win the hot laps in the M3!

All kdding aside, who do we bribe so I can get at least 1 hot lap??? I want to come out of that car, shaking and glad to be alive!

Here is an in car video from a few years ago that a friend of mine who was my guest at the Drivers Club took of a hot lap around LRP in an M5 (which was the pace car that year).
"Sideways Simon" Kirkby, who is the director and chief instructor fot the Drivers Club is at the wheel. At 1:49 you can see why the Cayman Club named him "Sideways Simon" after a few of them (and Bimmerfester Professor Cook) took hot laps with him in an M3. Drifiting may not be the fastest way around Big Bend but it makes for a spectacular ride,

Love the "Sideways Simon" nickname, this is a great promotional video for the upcoming hot laps with him. Thanks for sharing it, Captain!

I still haven't decided where we will be staying overnight, sorry! I'll get that decision squared away by tomorrow, I hope.

This looks like a lot of fun! Hopefully the foliage hangs out as long as it did last year (but without the snow this time)...

We need to know who is coming to dinner Friday and Saturday so we can set up the reservations at the restaurants.

Great

Call them to book your room (if you have not already) at 860.435.2000 and tell them you are with the Bimmerfest group. If they don't know what you are talking about ask to speak to Shaffin.

What are the room rates you have quoted for Wake Robin Inn- their website is not helpful.
