Question Jon, should we have a new forum for Racing/Track Events? . . .

What do the rest of you think? - nate, CD-55, raffi, vince, etc.

Great idea!

But just racing/track events? What about mini-meets, tech sessions, detailing clinics, etc.

Great idea Scott!


I was also considering a new forum "for ladies only".....
(you know, to encourage more active participation here
from the members of feminine gender)

Still think it should be done though

there is a website that tells you all about local events too like here is one for my area

http://www.ggc-bmw-cca.org/

so in the meantime, you could also check these sites out. Are you a bmwcca member bimmer just out of curiosity, you could get flyers and stuff if you were.

You dont even have to type in the link, just click it and viola youlld have all these resources available to you.

here is even a link to the calendar which tells you cool stuff like, what is happening and when.
