Come out and experience some wheel-to-wheel racing, talk to the people that race in a series well with in your reach. Do not miss this event!! Whether you just enjoy hanging out with the MINI community, watching racing, or you compete in time events and are interested in taking that next step there is something for everyone. We also will have a drive to the event where we will enjoy a few twisties with both VA and Maryland pickup points (which ever works best for you). Please sign up for the drive below. Additional Information Arriving: 1) For those joining the run, I will coordinate everything at the gate just follow the MINI in front of you. 2) If you are arriving separately, tell the gate worker you are with the SCCA MINI Car Corral. a) Any issues, have them contact Chris Doherty. 3) You will be asked to sign the general waiver at the gate, and given a wrist band (don't lose it!) 4) The car corral will be located directly across from the main entrance to the track. There will be large banners and a popup setup denoting the area. 5) Waivers - Chris will ensure everyone has signed the SCCA waiver in the morning, and we will provide an additional wrist band for the track touring laps. During the event: 1. Spectating: You are free to visit any spectator areas or grandstands within the track confines. The outer parts of the track is a great place to watch the racing, and the Car Corral will be in a prime location. a. I strongly encourage everyone to bring folding chairs, umbrellas, etc. If bringing canopies, make sure you have a way to secure them down if it is windy. Use best judgement here. b. We are still confirming if the group will have Paddock access while racing is going on. This is TBD. 2. A live audio broadcast from the announcing booth will be on FM 88.7 Lunch Track Touring laps: 1. Lunch laps: Lunch time laps are limited to 25 and first come first served. Chris will shuttle everyone to paddock and grid. 2. We expect this will happen between 11:45 and 12:30, depending on track cleanup and race group schedules. This could be earlier or later. 3. Lunch laps will follow the Track Tour rules here. Food & Snacks: 1. We will also be providing light individual portion snacks and coolers with chilled beverages. a. The 'Che Summit' concession stand will be open in the race paddock. Burgers/dogs/nachos, etc. will be available for purchase. b. You can bring their own meals, grills, snacks, etc. There are no outside food restrictions at the track! c. Your participants can bring beer, wine, alcohol, etc. Just no intoxicated driving during lunch touring laps, which should be fairly obvious.

  9. Brandy and I just made it back to the house. Another great MOTD, all the DCMM’ers I saw handled themselves appropriately and upheld the high standard DCMM has build. If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience MOTD I cannot recommend it enough, whether you enough driving or are more a social person there are events for everyone. please talk to those that are old hats or only been once and let them let you about their experiences.
  10. I would check your battery voltage, they seem pretty sensitive to even a slightly low voltage when starting. Other than that we would need some more info. You could swing by a autozone (or any other parts store) they will check you battery voltage and pull any historical codes for you. If you post those codes we maybe able to give you a better direction to the possible cause.
  11. Doing a little more spring cleaning. I have a set of sport suspension coilovers and rear sway bar. If you have a Cooper or Cooper S with the base suspension with will be a nice bump up in handling. Coilover only have 20k miles on them so plenty of life on them. All for $125 or$100 if you just want the coilovers.
  12. Doing some spring cleaning. I have a set of 17” challenge cross wheels. One wheel has been refinished still in the box (had to replace the vent one) the other three have some crib rash on the lips (like that when I bought them) could be easily refinished or used as is. Those there also have TPMS installed. I was going to have them powder coated black for my summers, but have decided to go with a lighter option. these will fit any gen 1 or 2 minis. Sorry not countryman or paceman. $400 for the set and TPMS sensors.
  13.

This will be an out and find your own way back run. From Luray there are great routes to come back to home for you. Those heading more north will be at the start of skyline drive just to give one example. Schedule: 1015 - Drives Meeting 1030 - Wheel up 1200 - arrive in Luray.
