Nehru, Pat, Yo, and Myself will be there - Thursday - Monday.

Thursday - Sunday = Camping/Karting/ALMS

We have a room at Sipkins on Sunday night for some bar time and hanging out as well.

Monday = Track Day

Stop on by we are camping basically off the road that takes you down into the carousel. I'll have my evo there, a red miata, and Nehrus E46 M3.

We are leaving from Mason City on friday morning, but spending time in Racine and Milwaukee before getting to RA on Saturday evening. Race on Sunday, hang out on Monday and get ready for another O'fest.

It's been four years since I have been up that way and my wifes first visit to the place I used to disappear to each April for early track time. Did I really start going there in 1992?

Just followed a dozen BMWs for about 30 miles on IL96 on my way home from a friends house. A few e46 M3s, some e36s, and a e92 coupe. The M3 in back had Indiana plates. I was hoping they were going to my town to stop so I could talk to them, but they headed east towards Carthage/Macomb IL.

Just strange, not often you see a caravan of BMWs cruise through the middle of nowhere

Anyone have any idea where they were headed? I looked on Bimmerforums and M3Forums for Midwest threads, but didnt see anything relevant.

Sweet pics Nehru. You putting those on your website? I'd like to sort through them. You had some great vantage points throughout the weekend.

I used all ze place, I am sure Brian would have out paced me by 20mph but it made the rest of the drive worth it. Hit Cali on the way to SanFran tomorrow so more curves to look forward too.
