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?

LMAO. Silly me. I know.

I took that picture on Saturday at the Rolex Grand Am races.
That sign is in Big Bend (turns 1 and 2) at Lime Rock.
The orange M3 was the pace car. It is not the usual pace car which is a white M3 and I suspect it was provided by BMW who are a big sponsor of Lime Rock and BMW is the "Official" car of Lime Rock Park.
All of the senior staff members drive BMWs and track owner Skip Barber had an M3 convertible until recently. He told me he is getting a new 6 Series convertible to replace it.

Are the F30's going to have their own event? After reading some of the recent posts in this forum, one would think the F30 is in an elitist class unto itself.

F30‘s go first, have the right of way.

We don't want to be held back by the E90 and E46 people.

I think you are the only F30 going. I guess there are not many F30 owners who are driving enthusiasts.

I have no problem with you going ahead of me so you catch the bugs before they get to my car. But, I think CA will have to lead the way since he is the only one who knows where we are going!

We will probably have our own parking area in Sunoco Paddock at LRP (I'll post a map before the event).
The Drivers Club will have the track in the AM and SCDA (Sports Car Driving Association) will have it in the afternoon so there will be a lot of activity.

This event is coming together very nicely.

We will be raffling off 10 Hot Laps with Drivers Club Coach Simon Kirkby in the Clubs BMW M3 with proceeds going to The American Mural Project.

This is what a LRP M3 Hot Lap looks like:



We still have some places available.

hey wait a minute. I would be there also if I could get away for 4 days, or so. Unfortunately I have one hell of a busy schedule at work the following week and Mrs Windsor has a major project due.

Are you kidding? I thought gay people are proud now to make sure everyone around them know they are gay.

Six days to go and we still have a few spaces left.


Here is our schedule:



Friday night the 26th we will meet for dinner at the Boathouse in Lakeville, CT at 7:00-7:30 PM. Some of us will be coming from the Wake Robin and some will be going directly to the Boathouse.

The Boathouse Restaurant
349 Main Street at intersection of Route 44 & 41
Lakeville, Connecticut 06039
(860).435.2111


Saturday morning those who are staying at the Wake Robin Inn will meet in the Breakfast Room at 8:30. At 9:30 we will leave for Lime Rock and take a short drive over some back roads to the track. Those who did not stay at the Wake Robin can meet us in the parking lot at 9:30 or they can head directly to Lime Rock, We will arrive at Lime Rock Park at 10:00 and park our cars in Sunoco Paddock. We will then head to Michelin Tower where we will raffle off 5 hot laps (2 riders each) in the Drivers Club M3 with Club coach Simon Kirkby at the wheel. The top 5 bidders will get to ride in the front seat. The Drivers Club will provide helmets and proceeds from the auction will be donated to The American Mural Project. We will meet for lunch in the Drivers Club Chalet at 11:30. Lunch will be provided by Lime Rock Catering, pricing and details to follow.

Wake Robin Inn
106 Sharon Lakeville, CT


Saturday Afternoon after lunch we will go on a drive through the Connecticut and New York State countryside, We will go through Sharon CT, Amenia New York, Millbrook New York (rest stop), cross a covered bridge in Bulls Bridge CT and head to Kent CT (rest stop) and Housatonic Meadows State Park (rest stop) and end up at the Fall Village Inn for dinner at 6:00PM.

Sunday Morning we will gather in the parking lot of the Wake Robin Inn at 10:00 AM and drive to the American Mural Project in Winsted CT. We will drive accoss another covered bridge and stop in the very picuturesque town of Litchfied CT. We will arrive at the Wall at 12:30 PM and artist Ellen Griesedieck will give us a private tour, Hopefully, if his schedule permits, Ellen's husband race driver Sam Posey will be there as well.

Ellen has not asked for anything in return for having us as her guests but I think it would be very appropriate if we all became members of AMP . I already am a member but intend to make an additional contribution.

There are 3 suggested giving levels to enable everyone to enroll and be counted as an AMP Member:

$120 (the Mural is 120 feet wide)
$48 (the Mural is 48 feet high)
$6 (the Mural is 6 feet deep)
Any other amount would be appreciated


Don't forget to bring your checkbooks and keep in mind that the AMP building is not heated so dress warmly!
