Had a call from the local dealer a couple days back to see if I was interested in attending. It's a day and a half affair at a track near Dallas using a cross selection of AMG vechicles and AMG staff from Germany, along with a local driving school for track instruction. Will be a full day of track fun with all expenses (hotel, meals, local ground transportation, etc.) except airfare picked up by MB Canada - thank you MB Canada! Apparantly this is a new initiative and due to it's late approval from corporate MB, it was too late to book a Canadian track and still leave at least some reasonable lead time for people to sign on. So Dallas it is, and I'm attending on Nov 13th/14 (dates are from Nov 11 to the 14th) along with my daughter who'll pry herself away from univ. for a couple days *L*. She's the only other member of my family who also has the bug for cars.
