VIR in July is always 120 degrees and humid for some reason. Was the case last year with NASA and the years before. I don't think I've ever driven in such hot/humid weather lol.
Yeh, I'm used to 100 degrees but dry out in CA. We'll see how the ER competition coolers do in July. At summit a few weeks ago I limped due to a boost issue, not quite sure what, but as soon as I was solo (no instructor) it went away...it's not just temps that tame our 335's...

A couple other events I'm interested in doing this year:

BMWCCA August 24-26 (if we sign up now, more than likely all of us will get in and we will have a great group together).
http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.c...776B9BE3A8271D

Watkins Glen September 21-23 (I'd only sign up for Saturday and Sunday)
I've been to Watkins Glen and helped out with the Bimmerworks Race Team for a 4 hour sprint race (we came in 3rd overall), but haven't been able to drive the track yet. It's a very historic race track and I stayed in Seneca Lodge, which is where the F1 teams used to stay back in the day.
Great track and great setting.

Thanks for posting this thread in the first place Peter! Great to see who's attending different events.

I know the Fairfield Inn. Very nice, but the room rates I just checked are $140 per night.
I'll try the Quality Inn for next month's events. The Country Inn is out, not a good stay (I guess it's true, you get what you pay for)

I'm officially signed up for NJMP in August and the Glen for September.
Splinterz88 is signed up for both and I think E90 87ss is for both as well.
CJ421 and spicish22 are signed up for NJMP in August.

updated. If the other guys are not confirmed, send me a note and I'll update again as needed.

Has anyone tried the Ramada Inn at Vineland? Quality Inn was fully booked for one of my days.

Welcome! It's going to be a great event. We have seven signed up already.

I usually stay at the Quality Inn in Millville. No, it's not a fantastic place, but definitely in a better part of town and lots of other BMWs will be there as well. Only $80 is a bonus too. Since we have so many people going, we could all probably share rooms.

Peter: I'd be careful in Vineland. Some areas are not the best.
This place may not be too bad:
