over 600 Euros are signed up, expecting something like 200 MBs.

Anyone can make it? I'll be there with my car, it's only 90% done, but i don't want to miss this event!

Come check out my car too, i promise you'll be amazed! Hopefully we can get some SLKs parked together? SLKs usually have a pretty weak showing at these events.

Cyber, have you been to one of these before? Anyone else interested? Do we need to register?

I may go if there's enough participants from here. There's also a meeting spot in Irvine Spectrum in the above link.

I registered. I might be interested in checking this out - its a bit of a trip so I wouldn't want to go unless theres some interest to meeting up and so on. Would anyone be interested in meeting and driving down there together?

If I go I'm definitely thinking about caravaning........
We can meet at the Irvine Spectrum Target parking lot G as stated in the SoCalEuro link and caravan down together with the others at 9 am

OR

We can meet at another location in Irvine, e.g., Irvine Costco at Technology at their gasoline station or other locations (if Tslick has a suggestion) nearby and caravan down at a slightly later time, like 9:30am.

What do you guys think?

Also waiting to hear from others (eg, B55, hairypet55, V8SLK, SLKGirl, Sid and other SoCal members).

Im up for whatever - id prefer to caravan down with half a dozen slks from this forum as opposed to like 20+ random cars personally, but either way works I guess.

First, when and where do we meet on Sunday (August 10) am? Do you want to meet with the other vehicles at Irvine Spectrum between 8:30-9:00 am, or meet between 9-9:30 am nearby (allows extra 30-minute sleep time :))?

Country drive sounds good as long as it's not too late in the afternoon. Perhaps we could leave a tad early from the Qualcomm stadium as needed. Do you have a route Tslick?

Might as well start a list (please add/take away to the list as needed):

1. Cyberdrakon
2. Tslick
3. Kungfudevil
4. SLKluv
5. Etyu

Lets meet at Ford Mazda PPG parking lot (the big V shaped one off Gateway blvd). A good place to meet at 8:45 then wander over to the Spectrum. If not. 9:15-9:30 to head south.

If there's time, heres a few from a cast of ? (twenties that I can think of). SD County is the Mecca of twisty, canyon, mountain... goodness.

Temecula is the assumed end point

A two hour jaunt to Palomar (twisties) then Temecula

A two hour fifteen minute jaunt to Palomar (twisties) then Temecula

A two hour forty minute (sure) high speed bends through Sunrise. V8SLK, where is that food stop on this route?

Here's one I'll do one of these days... A 3.45 hour (knock .45 off that) very high speed jaunt through the Great Overland Route of 1849

Tslick, correct me if I'm mistaken.

This is on Gateway Blvd. near Alton Pkwy (approx. address is 7931 Gateway Blvd, Irvine, CA).
