Hey guys:

I'm bringing the Polizei M5 to Daytona Beach, Florida from January 24th to the 27th for the Rolex 24, and am planning a joint event with the Farnbacher-Loles Team the night of Friday the 25th.

Any suggestions for a suitable restaurant/bar where I can park the M5 in front, hang out for the evening with the team and drivers, have enough space to invite members of the M5 board AND have enough parking for M5 board members to park their cars?

Any suggestions appreciated ASAP.

Best Regards,
Alex

Ah... my old stomping ground. :3: I managed to flunk out of high school spending waay too much time in Daytona.. :hihi:

It has changed a bit since I hung there, so I'm afraid I can't help. Good luck.. wish I could make it.

[Enjoyed your book btw. Any chance you'll be making a stop in Chi-town?]

Cheers

Dave

I wish I could help you out, would be awesome to see the car and meet you, maybe get my book signed. Do you have any plans on coming up to the Seattle area in the future?

I should hit Chicago sometime in April/May, but can't say for now. I promise to announce it here, and will probably ask again here for venues there.

I've found that my favorite events are those informal ones set up through the boards by friends I've seldom met offline...

best, Alex

Seattle? Yes, but...

I'll def hit Seattle in the Spring, but the dates aren't set you. Big surprises events coming, though!

If you want it signed, PM me your mailing address and # so we can work it out.

Best, Alex

I live in Daytona, so I might be able to help. I'll give it some thought. The first place that comes to mind is Chops By Martini's on US1. Plenty of parking, always an interesting/original menu, and outside bar area. Call Claudia at 386-763-1090. John Revis
