The M Gruppe is going to have an epic weekend in August that will start on Friday and end on Sunday, 3 days of fun with fellow ///M enthusiasts! One of the activities is a private tour of the BMW Vehicle Processing Center in NJ. This is the first port of entry of BMW, Rolls Royce and Mini cars arriving from Europe. That tour will also include a very special BMW guest appearance. The VPC is off-limits to public access so this is a huge honor.

The weekend itinerary is as follows:

Friday 8/10: We will meet up for dinner at a NYC restaurant to eat, drink and make a couple of special announcements. Those who need to do so can stay at a hotel near the VPC where we have arranged a booking

Saturday 8/11

  • Morning we will meet at the VPC, have our tour and hang out with some of the BMW brass!
  • Noon we will make a B-line to Lime Rock Park (it will be a pretty drive), where we will have some more guest stars to chat with us, and then we will take a brisk parade lap around the track
  • Evening we will hang out for dinner, drinks and having a good time hanging out
  • Night members who decide to stay at Lime Rock should book a hotel in one of the hotels in that area
Sunday 8/12: The weekend will end with a BBQ at Hawthorne Cottage in Lakeville, CT ($50/person includes all food, beverages, supplies)

Fine Details

Cost: The M Gruppe does NOT charge its members fees to be a member nor money to participate in any of its events. With that, hotels and dinners do cost money and you are responsible for your own costs. The BBQ will cost $50/person and will include food, beverages, supplies etc.
