Default Timmayfest 2011 Pre Meet Drag Night! Friday, June 10th

What: We are having a drag racing night the evening before Timmayfest (Timmayfest will be held on Saturday, June 11th 10am-4pm) so that all of our attendees can SAFELY and LEGALLY run their cars as hard and fast as they want! We have also joined up with the Mercedes/AMG group from MBWorld.com to add some excitement to the event. Eurocharged is bringing their mobile dyno again to set up at the drag strip (they will also be set up at Timmayfest) and we will have a DJ there spinning some tunes. We have PRIVATELY RENTED the drag strip listed below. The cost will be $50 per car for the night. We can have as many cars there as we want and can run as many times as we wish during the evening! Remember, this event is for BMW/Mercedes/Exotic cars only. This event is NOT open to the public, it is for our group only.

When:
Friday June 10th, 4pm - 11pm

Where:
Marion County International Raceway
2303 Richwood-Larue Road
La Rue, OH 43332-9293
740-499-3666

Cost: $50 per car to run as many times as you can during the evening. We are charging money to run to help pay for the track. Any money that is collected above the expense of renting the track will be donated to the charity for the event. Last year we donated to The Make-A-Wish Foundation(R).

The Plan: We would like to meet for lunch around 12pm or 1pm on June 10th then travel as a group (caravan) to the drag strip. We will announce the lunch location later. It is about an hour away from the hotel/venue (Timmayfest) location. That would mean 50-60 BMW/Mercedes/Exotics traveling together! We are shooting to arrive around 3pm so everyone can prep their cars and get ready for a night of FUN!


We would like to get an estimate of those planning to attend and donate to the cause ($50) There will be a HUGE list of Mercedes guys too......

1. Timmay77 - E39 M5
2. Marcus - CLS55
3. Jake (Eurocharged) - E55 AMG
4. herrubermensch - E39 M5
5. Kelster - E39 M5
6. hdhntr23 - E39 M5
7. Clemster - E39 M5

No, but it would be appreciated if people who come to donate a little bit to help cover costs. It's not cheap to rent a drag strip for the whole night.....

I'd be willing to chip in some, I just don't know if I can afford to drag my car and risk breaking something.

I am definitely in for drag racing. I have some work to do before the car is ready. And I'll be bringing a spare axle....just in case

My car is an 86' 325 turbocharged with coilovers and some beautiful red primer paint! lol

Idk, I'd talk to Eurocharged. It all goes to our charity anyway. We still ran, it was beautiful until 9pm. I got 9 or 10 runs in. Much slower than what I hoped, but I went sown the track and kept the shiny side up. Lol. It was fricken AWSOME to see all of those MB's and BMW's at the track.

Well ****ty planning on my part meant I didn't get to columbus until 7. And then I called the track and they said it was starting to rain. Either way the meet was fun today and the money went to the charity. I like the shirts too Tim
