so is ANYOne going to concorso / monetrey historics?

There have been a couple of threads for this, but they seem to die off quickly. In Past years there have been some nice caravans down to monterey for concorso italiano (www.concorso.com) and a get together in the corral, but it doesn't look like much is happening this year. Anyone going? It's this friday!

I will be there to watch one of my latest restore run.
I didn't get to go watch it run at the Goodwood Festival but the Monterey weekend is a must this time.
Bring lots of film or memory sticks there are going to be some race cars that haven't been out of museums for sometime. :1:

Thought about it, but I haven't been feeling too well this week to do anything.

Mike,
There are only 13 M5's registered for the Corral at the Concorso. Looks like a light crowd.
I'm not going to make it this year.

Have fun!

Jeff.

Re: so is ANYOne going to concorso / monetrey historics?

Hi all. Thx for your message, Mike, and for the Thread.

I'll be at both the Concourso and the Historics (at least on Saturday). I may have one extra ticket for BMW corral and track entry and lunch on Saturday if someone is in need. I'm happy to meet in the a.m. (but I'm staying at Hwy 1 x Hwy 156 so it's only a 10 minute drive for me). Also may be interested in drinks or a dinner beforehand on Thurs afternoon or eve (like some of us did a couple years ago) if my son and his girl friend are interested.
And I also know a great place for a road rally if anyone is staying down near Castroville on Thursday . . . but just don't throw a rod there like I did! Hehehe

Hey Wright, i'm staying a few miles away. I'm at a family place at pajaro dunes, on the coast, off the 129 exit from hwy 1. My family is already down there, i'm heading down on wed night. I may be up for a lunch/dinner etc on thrus, but i'll also be doing the family thing that day. I'll check back in before i head out of town on wed in case anyone else is down.
If nothing else, my cell is 925 899 7651.

What time are you heading out for concorso. I'm going to try to meet up with Bob Eunaka on the road, as well as another board member, Mark (alpineblue) so perhaps we can park at the corral together.

Yeah! Beach :cool: plus M5 :M5launch: = Life! I'll be staying at Monterey Dunes just up the way; two years ago Anita and MAH and Cap (from Seattle) had a beer at my place and then we had dinner at Moss Landing . . . My cell is 650 776-3297 (doesn't work well there); my phone at Monterey Dunes is 831 632-0873. In past years I've met people on Molera Road which intersects Hwy One . . .or zip down the on ramp to Hwy One when we see all the Beasties approaching . . . .

For a heads up I'll be staying at the Best Western off Hwy1 and 128 on the water for Saturday night.
I don't know as of yet if I will drive the BMW or a supercharged Scion TC.

Looks like a fun weekend.

Oh . . . I'll never forgive Bob for aceing me out for third place in our group at the 2002 (or was it 2003?) Infineon M5 gathering autocross morning session (on his last run), but respect him for that . . . and am happy to wait for him (hehehe) or meet him again (since I think he has caravaned down for the last 3 years or so from the South Bay). But #1 was the Porsche RS and #2 was Boris the wild man if I remember correctly . . . Bob, could we meet up on Molera Road . . . perhaps without your son (hehehe). Who else is on the M5 train to park at the Concourso? (Barry . . . you could be an honorary member even though you sold your M5 in June since your Mini does have four tail pipes).

Molera rd, is THAT the road Bob took us down last year? A little 145mph short cut thru the farmland? I'll have my son with me this year, and he'll tell... (based on past experience).

Nice place and great view. It would be a bit far for me to drive this year.

Enjoy,
