Exclusive Lime Rock Park Offer to BMW Car Club of America Members & Guests

Lime Rock Park

A new regional event is coming up at the end of this month at Lime Rock Park, exclusively for BMW CCA members! Want to enjoy the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge and TUDOR races at the famous Connecticut track alongside fellow BMW enthusiasts? See below for more information!

——-

It’s BMW CCA Days sponsored by BMW of North America and New Country BMW in Hartford, Conneticut. For the last three years, BMW CCA and Lime Rock Park have partnered to offer BMW CCA members an exceptional deal on a weekend of BMW-themed fun at the storied Connecticut racetrack.

This year, we are celebrating BMW CCA Days at the region’s biggest sports car event, The Northeast Grand Prix featuring the IMSA Tudor United Sports Car Championship and Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge! We want to thank the CCA Members for their passion and loyalty to the teams that compete with BMWs, so we’ve arranged for an exclusive entertainment package on two unique days of the race weekend. Team RLL of BMW NA will not be there with the Z4 GT cars but Turner Motorsports and Fall Line Racing will be there campaigning BMW’s.

Thanks to BMW CCA, BMW North America and New Country BMW, here’s what is available only as a CCA Member:

.         The flexibility of admission for the Friday, July 24 practice and qualifying day, the Saturday, July 25 race day, or both days in a special
weekend pass with access to the BMW CCA Days hospitality tent

.         Free parking with your BMW in the BMW Corral on the days of your attendance (parade laps on Friday)

.         Special guests throughout the weekend from Turner Motorsport and Fall Line Motorsports

.         Private paddock tours and autograph sessions for the BMW CCA hospitality tent guests

Limited to the first 200 tickets sold, available for purchase by BMW CCA members only. Each BMW CCA member may purchase as many tickets as they need.

Lime Rock Park is a family friendly venue with lots to do for both adults and kids, with great food and track viewing areas under trees all around the
track. Lime Rock Park, in Connecticut’s famous Northwest Corner, is about two-and-a-half hours from Boston and two hours from New York City.

The ticket packages, exclusive to BMW CCA Members and Guests, are listed below. Take advantage of this screaming good offer to come and enjoy the
spirit of BMW CCA today!

Friday, July 24 Adult Ticket: $60.00

Chittenden County Drive

Wanna go for a drive thru the twisty bits of Chittenden County?

Please join us as we take a scenic drive through beautiful Chittenden County.  We’ll be meeting at 10:00am, Saturday, July 25 at the southbound Rest Area on I-89 (Williston).  The group will enjoy driving our wonderful Bimmers through some of the gorgeous back roads of the Champlain Valley.  This is a fun, family-friendly event!  Feel free to bring spouses and the kids.

We will conclude our tour in Shelburne, with an amazing lunch at Folino’s Pizza (http://www.folinopizza.com/) which happens to share a building with the nationally renowned Fiddlehead Brewery (http://www.fiddleheadbrewing.com/).  Across the street from Folino’s/Fiddlehead, you’ll find the award-winning Shelburne Vineyards (http://shelburnevineyard.com/) where wine-tasting (and purchase) is available.

If all of this isn’t enough, Vermont’s famous Burger Barn (https://www.facebook.com/BurgerbarnVT) will be at Shelburne Vineyards that day!  If you have not had a burger from the Burger Barn, you haven’t lived!

In order to give the food/drink people some notice, we must have an idea of how many people will be joining us.  If you are planning to come out and join us, or have any questions, please email Stew (docloeb@aol.com) or Pam (rottnut@aol.com) no later than July 18.

Green Mountain Chapter Trailer Fund Update!

TRAILER FUND UPDATE!

The Green Mountain Chapter has an exciting trailer fund update thanks to Scott Stewart of Pillar to Post Home Inspection! Scott has announced that he will be offering up to $400 in matching funds for donations to the Trailer Fund through the month of April! Please donate now, and hopefully the Green Mountain Chapter Trailer Fund can meet its fundraising goal by the end of the month! Our total is $670 as of April 7, and remember—we only need every member to donate $10 in order to meet our $1500 goal, and we’re just under halfway. Please donate so we can wrap up the trailer fund effort before the end of the month. We appreciate your support of the Green Mountain Chapter Trailer Fund!

Here’s a quick update from GMC President George Ohlweiler regarding a new project for the Green Mountain Chapter that will help make the setup and arrangement of driving events much more efficient in 2015.

All Members,

Our initial request for the “Trailer Fund” was an immediate success. However, the donations have come to an abrupt halt.
As of January 26th we have just over $500.00 in the bank. This is about one third of what is needed to start the process.
We only need everyone to donate at least $10.00 to make this happen.

Thank you to everyone that has already donated.

To assist in the “Trailer Fund”, please send your check or money order to Green Mountain Chapter BMW CCA, PO Box 735, Dorset, VT 05251.

Complete and accurate records will be kept on all donations. In the event that this project does not come to fruition—and I do not expect that to happen—Member donations may be refunded.

Thank you for your support in this Chapter project.

Regards,

George Ohlweiler, President
