I like the idea of splitting up to have food and then head back to the same place...just don't like the food too much to wash it up with some adult beverages

if i am not mistaking, I see that the start/end point is the leesburg airport, i looked it up and they have a 1670m (1 mile) runway. Do you think they would allow us on the runway for an hour of fun? we can drag/roll start for 1000-1200m (3/4 mile) and 1/4 mile for braking. A EU spec. stock m3 takes 23 seconds to cover 1000 meter from standstill. it should be fun. We can do it at start or let some steam of before everybody gets back on the interstate on the way back.

The start point is around there. The end point is Middleburg, or that's the plan. I doubt Leesburg airport would let us use their air strip on a Saturday but call them up and ask, can't hurt and it would be awesome.

I emailed them along with several other airstrips. I found another 1.5 mile private airstrip sent them an email but turns out its owned by the army and they do not allow such things

I will be driving the route on Friday to finalize it. I'm working on the sign up and stuff as well. $50 worked well for last time. As for the cause to donate to this time around, someone brought this to my attention: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/racheldandrea/mystory Rachel is a local child, 2 years old, battling cancer and needs help. Please let me know if you have any other donation suggestions or ideas.

I'd also like to make a Skyline Run website which should bring some more exotic cars, anyone willing to help?

I drove the route on Friday and the roads are amazing! Seriously, the roads are better than anything we've driven on so far. I'm really excited for this run

I plan to have us leave the meeting location at 10:30am and we should be done at 4:30pm. The World Cup game doesn't start until 8:30pm so I don't think there should be any issues. Let me know what you think though.

I will be posting the official thread tomorrow. I'm working with MotorsportReg.com so we can pay using their site instead of paypal. Here's the link for registration: http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.c...8F12B6496003C1 It's not complete yet but should be complete sometime tomorrow.
