Well, I guess if this caravan is gonna happen... we need to know a good time to leave for Fontana.... Should we just meet same time as always and plan on leaving same time?

I am gonna vote and say that we meet at 7am and leave at 8 am for bimmerfest 2015 at The Commons in Calabasas it would seem leaving by then would give us a pretty good shot at getting to autoclub speedway by 10 am...

You also might want to think about two different routes. 101 into the 210 then 15. Or 101, 405 to the 10/60.

Good point... I think the 101 to the 210 would be easiest that way people don't get lost with all the freeway changes

Google says that it would take an 1hr 20 mins without traffic... usually there isn't too much traffic on a saturday morning at that time.... as of right now it at 4 38pm it says it would take 2hrs and 17 mins and thats during weekday at peak hours so.... leaving at our normal 8am time is probably a good target...

8am sounds like a good time to punch out, but I remember last year the amount of normal traffic on 101 until basically 210 and it got a little Don't really see a way around it. Is there a map of the Bimmerfest parking gate options at Fontana? They'll probably only have a couple open.

Ill be down to go. I dont know anyone here. I got probably 3-5 more cars with me so we will just join this caravan. 7am meeting and 8am departure sounds good. But im sure we will leave at 9 cuz of people being late. Hopefully we do leave at 8.

FYI - I have been to the Auto Club Speedway before and the best (least traffic) is Cherry Ave exit off 210. So, 101-S > 134-E > 210-E > Cherry Exit (heading South). The 10 & 15 freeways are going to be a bottleneck. I am coming from Glendale-Northeast LA to enjoy the 75 mile caravan from The Commons, see you all 7ish (we should probably leave 7:45 am).

Agreed. Nothing but right turns into the lots. Looks like we're gonna have a big group again
