It is not often you get an opportunity to drive the Woody Creek track in Aspen, Colorado. I have been a track junkie for 25 years, and I have never even seen the track. Good news! You, as a BMW club member, can drive the track on September 17, 2017. Our club only has to cover our insurance for the event; all the rest is free with the compliments of Snowmass / Aspen. So, we shall only charge $100.00 to drive the track on the Sunday morning. It is not a driving school, just organized lapping. There will be three run groups, advanced, intermediate, and novice. I am sure that some of our club instructors and experienced drivers will be available to assist drivers in the novice run group. We shall just keep rotating these three run groups until our allotted time is up. This is not a RMC event, but we are joining in on the fun.
Our club is aiming to present at least 30 BMWs, of all descriptions, to the free car show on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Those 30 members will get preference for entry into the Woody Creek lapping event. You should register, through our Motorsport Reg page, for the car show as soon as possible. Registration is already open, and some members have already signed up. If you don’t participate in the car show, then you have to go onto a wait list for the Woody Creek event, and your chances will be slim. Besides, the car show is free, and there are all sorts of other exciting events in the days preceding the two events. There is, for example, a Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing race through the streets of Snowmass. Remember the fantastic races in Steamboat Springs in the 1980’s and 90’s? Well, this will revive those exciting days. There will be a few BMW 2002s to cheer for. I am indeed humbled and honored to be included in this select group of vintage racers. I would love to see dozens and dozens of our BMW supporters in Snowmass. I know the camaraderie levels will be highly elevated. This is so exciting. I can’t wait. I have already signed up with BMW and RMVR. You should too. Contact Andrew Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
