Hey guys,
It's hard to beleive that we are going into year 4 of C&C. As some of you know, this event has grown from a small gathering at Caribou with 30-40 cars to a montly showing of 500+ cars inside the Motorplex on any given First Saturday.
April may be a little colder for us this year, but the extended forecast shows sun every day from now to next Saturday which means that most of this snow and ice will be gone by then.
In order to keep things organised, please try to arrive as early as possible (the event starts at 8am) so that you can get a parking spot. We have gotten to the point where we have to turn people away or ask them to park in spectator parking when they arrive after 9:00 because there is no room. There is some extra parking this year, so take a look at the map and follow the direction of the people that will be helping you park.
Please keep the burnouts and hard launches for the track. We need to be respectful of the property and our host as well as the garage owners that allow us to have our event at their place.



Location:
The location is the Minneapolis AutoMotorplex located at:
8200 Audobon Rd. Chanhassen MN
Please check out the Motorplex’s website for map and other details: AutoMotorPlex - MPLS
For people traveling east of 494 we would encourage you to take the Crosstown (62) extension (HWY 5) the where it becomes 212, exit on Powers Blvd (Which is 1 exit past 101) go right, drive approx 500 ft and turn left on Lyman (at the light) travel approximately 1 mile, turn right on Audubon and we will be 1.1 mile on the left.
















Please mark your calendars with the following 2011 dates:
April 2nd
May 7th
June 4th
July 2nd
August 6th
Spetember 3rd
October 1st

Thanks to all of you that made it out. We had over 550 cars in the show (The lot was full by 8am) and record attendance again. There were over 2000 people in there. Crazy. Our next event will be on Saturday June 4th with our 3rd Annual open house at Imola Motorsports in Golden Valley, following immediately afterwards.
Here are some shots by Alex Bellus. See you guys at the next one!

Next weekend should be pretty special. Weather looks like it's going to be great. We will be having a special Eurowerks V showcase during the event in the back courtyard. Imola is having their 3rd annual open house/bbq which is always a good time with good food and resident DJ TeddyMac spinning some great music.
Super pumped. See you guys there.​

I think my wife and I are going to be there...can't believe I've never heard of this before! Although my M has a little bit of a hole of in the bumper as of right now, and it's not getting fixed until next week. In any case, I hope some other board members are there as well, this should be awesome.:cheers:

What time do people typically start showing up?

Stuff a teddy bear in it :D
The lot was full at around 8am last time. We had over 700 cars in the show. If you are there by 7:45 you should be good.

Wife and I had a great time out there yesterday! :thumbsup: We saw one LMB (I think) e39 on the end of the domestic area, another LMB in the upper parking lot, and a gentleman with a dark wrap on his e39 pulling out just as we were leaving. If anyone saw a carbon black e39 with a damaged passenger side front bumper cover, that was me!

Won't be able to make the August meet, but we'll be at September for sure:M5rev:

Please stay tuned to this thread for additional "after show" events like our annual Go Karting, Drag Racing and open house events as well as pics and vids of all of our events. Once we have the new maps completed, I will post them in here as well.
