Northeast Fall Foliage Run and visit to Lime Rock Park

If any if you F30 guys (or Cadillac lovers) would like to hang out with drivers of old cars and some Legends of Bimmerfest, check out the Sticky in the E9x forum.

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=630018

We will be touring Litchfield County (Northwest Connecticut) and will be stopping by Lime Rock Park, where we will be guests of The Drivers Club on Saturday and then going to The Wall of America museum in Winsted, CT.

This event will run from Friday evening October 26, to Sunday afternoon October 28th. You are welcome to attend which ever portions interest you or that fit your schedule.


The Wake Robin Inn in Lakeville, Ct. is reserving a block of rooms. 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 serve complimentary breakfast.

Friday night dinner will be at the Boathouse Restarant in Lakeville which is a 5 minute drive from either location.

Saturday morning after 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 Club's 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 a fun and scenic route) for a private tour of The American Mural Project. This is not to be missed, It is a 3D mural that is so large (150' long, 48' high and 6' deep. Ellen Griesedieck (wife of legndary race driver Sam Posey), the artist who is behind the project, has offered to give us a private tour of the site. I was there a few weeks ago and it is AWESOME!.

This is a family friendly event and SOs and children are welcome.

We will take a circuitous route from Lime Rock PArk to dinneer at the Falls Village Inn with stops in Millbrook NY, Kent CT and Housatonic Meadows State Park. We will go by two covered bridges and and be driving on very scenic (and very twisty) back roads,

He is going to be the Guest of Honor.

I spoke to him earlier this evening.

He is definitely bringing the F30 but is having a hard time deciding which Rolex to wear,

You should have your car in plenty of time and you can attend whatever portions of the event you like.

A schedule is in the sticky in the E9x forum.

I have a Luxury model with a sumptuous, leather, fold-down rear seat. You, me, the falling leaves, the ambient lighting...

We can go full-on comfort mode.

The trophy wife isn't into cars, the minivan makes her happy.

Several 'Festers hooked up at the Mount Washington Climb To The Clouds, it's quite natural to engage in "enthusiastic performance" with other passionate people when the significant others are out of sight. I mean, you don't think I'd take the ///L328i on such a long journey just to see some leaves, do you?

No worries; I can do EcoPro if that's what you're into.

Sting is into that whole Auto Start/Stop thing, I can do it too.
