Sat. APRIL 28th 末 BIG SoCal Meet at HRE Wheels Factory in San Diego

Got this on another board and thought I'd post it here. Carlsbad has monthly meets that are similar to the crystal cove meets. This month though, instead of their regular location, they're having the meet at HRE headquarters.

This is posted on various boards such as lambopower and ferrarichat, so one can expect to see a good variety of exotics there.

TIME: 7:00am - 9:30am

LOCATION: HRE Wheels HQ, 2611 Commerce Way, Suite D, Vista, CA 92081
HRE's large parking area has room for 300-400 cars easily, so let's fill up the lot!

(Note: This means no meet in Carlsbad at the factory outlet mall this month.)

FREE REFRESHMENTS & HRE FACTORY TOUR: HRE will be giving a facility tour to all attendees, so you can see how their forged custom wheels are made, ask technical questions of the engineers, etc. Complimentary Starbuck's coffee, donuts, bagels and muffins will be provided by HRE.

MOUNTAIN/BEACH DRIVE AFTER THE MEET: Let's all go for a drive in the eastern hills and mountains of San Diego after the meet. Last meet I put together in Nov, we had a great mountain drive, stopped for lunch and then cruised down the coast to La Jolla. (Some of you may remember a certain video of a certain Carrera GT peacefully meandering along the San Diego coast...not making any noise at all.)*

If anyone has an alternate eastern route for the drive (instead of going over Mt. Palomar), bring a map with your route and some copies to distribute, and we can definitely try something new. I'll snag some maps from AAA as usual and pass them out after the tour and snacking.

Sounds interesting, let me think about it. Is the S2000 crew showing up?

Hmm, probably not. It's more of a porsche meet, with sprinkles of other exotics such as ferraris and lambos.

I saw a list, and there looks to be a good number of MBs in the form of e55s going.

If I weren't commited to something else I would go. Darn.

Thanks Kent for the post. Let us know if there's another one like this in the future. It would be awesome to tour their factory and see the technical work.

now when you say GT in the first ones, you mean the mustang GT and not the GT40 remake correct?

Porsche member's refer to their GT's as the Carrera GT, could be wrong but it's mostly a Porsche meet correct so my assumption might be correct.

997 TPC turbo C4S
981 Boxster S
06' SLK 350, Iridium/Ash all pkgs. 6-spd, 19" DCR. (Gone but not forgotten)

760.598.1960 reverse phone lookup shows 2453 Cades Way, Vista, CA 92081. It's about a 1/4 mile from the other address so if the first doesn't pan out I'll try the second.

I never met up with heezy020, I hung out for about a hour & half with some lambo drivers. Before I left, I broke out my video camera to see if I could use it, like zoom and pan ....

This video is within 30 feet of my car.

Thanks for the video Tom. A tad shaky but looked like a fun day. Did you tour the HRE factory?

Nice collection of "kit" cars. Just kidding. Super nice exotics!

I didn't end up making it out there that day. If I drove down in the morning, I would have had to leave early for a lunch date, so I didn't feel it would be worth the drive. My main focus was the drive afterwards to palomar. Exotics are nice, but when you're actually there, it turns into a bit of a bore.
