I am posting this thread now to start the discussion about having some of the E46 M3 gang come over to the United States in 2016 for a event to celebrate 15 years of E46 M3 and 100 years of BMW. This will be a week long event that will be a mix of sight seeing, road tour, and one track day.
Right now it is just discussion about ideas and so on with nothing set set in stone. I am looking into sponsors to cover the cost of event activities and hotels so the only major cost to you for attending is flying here, car / rental, fuel and food. We will see how that pans out.
What the current plan is for you guys across the pond is as follows.
1. See about working out a group transport rate for those who wish to drive their own car here. This would be a rate for shipping here and back.
1A. Work out group insurance rates for the time in the states so you can drive the car here for a few weeks
2. As sending a car here and back will be $$$ the alternate option is discounted rate on BMW rentals for attendance.
3. See if there is a way to get a group rate on air travel (single city departure is the only catch)
Currently the event is planned to cover several states in the mid United States as this is fair to those coming from either cost with their cars.
I hope some of you find this idea at least worth considering for the sake of a good adventure.
