Fellas, I have been on vacation for the past week and havent been on the forums at all. Let me circle back around with Jonathan at Mothers and Steve (Biggynuts01) and I will get everyone the details this week.

Alright fellas... Just got off the phone with Jonathan @ Mothers and I secured my spot. I will update the main thread with the same information but this is what you need:

Name
Address
Make Model and Year
# of Package(s) - most will buy just 1 which comes with 2 tickets and 1 parking pass
(cant hurt to let him know how heavily your car is modified or not, from the initial count it looks like we will have some pretty heavily modified M's this year which will be cool)

The cost is $140 this year and in my opinion its worth it for a day of driving, cars, girls, beers, food, and more cars.

As you pay and receive your confirmation email, let everyone else on the thread know so that we can get an accurate count of how many of us there will be. Looking forward to seeing you guys!!

I dont think there is a way to pay less. You can ask Jonathan if its possible to forego the event tickets and just buy the parking pass and entry costs for the paddock but not sure how that will work.

I know this might sound dumb... but the M3 is the poor mans car at this event. There are lots of "true" exotics and while I dont want to speak for all of the attendees, I have a feeling that the $140 is a drop in the bucket for a lot of these guys. Pretty much everyone can get tickets to the LBGP from one vendor or another. For instance, I get them free at work every year, so its more of the exclusive participation in the event that merits the $140 and not the actual ticket entry cost itself. Hope that makes sense.

First come first serve til it fills up. It will fill up though so I wouldn't wait til April. I'd try to get it done in the next few weeks. And as I said they will overlook m3s at some point for other more exotic cars.

The drive is Sunday, which is part of this event.

The R8 is fantastic. By far the best car I've ever owned and driven; feels extremely planted, responds well, sounds amazing, and is a lot faster than people give it credit for. Maybe its time to trade in for one? Even though Chad's ride is siiiiiiick, I keep pushing him to get one too lol Same with Mr. C
