Bay Area / Sacramento Meet and Drive Aug 18th

I am planning my next drive for Saturday August 18th for those who are interested. I know some of you are heading to Monterey and are going to hate me for this but this was the best time I could work out to do the next drive.

Date: August 18th 2012
Time: 9:00-9:300am
Address: Starbucks - 1472 1st Street, Livermore, CA 94550

Leave for drive at 9:30am on the DOT!

Sacramento Caravan
Time: 7:40am Leaving ON THE DOT!
Address: Laguna 76 - 2323 Laguna Boulevard, Elk Grove, CA 95758

For those who recognize the address we are doing the same event we did in May. If you have no idea, what I am talking about then you will need to come out and see for yourself what is planned. Sorry, for the secrecy but this event requires some political maneuvering so I have to be cautious on what is posted.

As usual to be added to be added to my drives list email me at norcal.drivers@gmail.com

Images from the Last event:

The May event was so much fun! I'm totally in.

Anyone interested in caravaning from SF/Peninsula. I would recommend Hickey Blvd off of 280 @ the Chevron Station. Or open to meet off of 92 and 101 somewhere on El Camino Real?

What's the end destination to this drive? What's the length expected to be on the road? I'm a newbie. I'd like to know so that I can plan out the rest of my day.

We leave for the drive at 9:30am. Arrive to destination at about 11:30-12. You can leave at any point on the drive. We will be onsite at the location from noon to 3 if you want to be there that long.

All I can say is this is a event that is one people kicked themselves for missing last time.

Cris, I live in Union City and will probably take Palomares road from Niles to I-580. If you want to take some backroads there. Palomares is about 11 miles of twisties.

John, I don't have your email. PM me your email and I can give you additional details I received from M3dragon. I plan on being there until 2-3. We can take the road back or I-5.

Well I have bad news this afternoon =(

I received word that we will not have access to the airfield this weekend. The reason is there are a lot of hops I have to jump through to get us permission to use this place. I was recently tossed a few more hoops to jump through and as such, we are not permitted to use the location this weekend. On a positive note, once I completed the additional hoop jumping we will have better access to the airfield.

It looks like my notice of cancellation was a bit premature for those who might have gotten that notice. You know when you are with the right person you tell them we lost the airfield so there is no drive and their response is in not so many words “well maybe I wanted to still do the drive”.

So by order of the BIG boss we are going to do the DRIVE ONLY part of the day. I will continue my efforts to get us to the Airfield for a future date.

Probably not as Jen wanted to do the drive still so we would be going away from that event. If you go take lots of pics

Or there is the event posted below as well.

Great drive on Saturday, ZERO traffic for a change, which allowed for some great driving on twisty roads. As usual, please remember to send me any images you have so I can share them with the group. I will post again once I have the images compiled.

I was able to splice together two videos of the drive. Video one is of the first leg and video two is the second leg. Shot were from a BMW E30 318i in the middle of the group.

You guys drive super fast. I was in the mid/rear pack and we never saw you once you left starbucks and junction. Partly because of the S4 "pace car".

I would say we drive quick not fast. The S4 was going a pace he was safe with, could have always flashed and asked to pass him.
