I think that means you will also be within about 1.5 hours of gridlife at cmp!

I might attend if the weather is good. Looks like a little over 3 hours each way, so not too horrible for a day trip.

Dangit, the concentration of GRMers is making me consider driving three hours. At least. More if traffic is bad, and traffic is always bad.

Wish they had one closer to the NoVa/WV area.  I think Ohio is the closest I've seen.

They're doing philly and detroit this year, cleveland was last year. 
 

Skyline is staying home, not doing 8+ hours each way at 4000rpm. Bringing Bradley's 996 I believe

In reply to Dusterbd13-michael :

such a non stuffy vibe. so different from what I'm used to in a very very good and welcome way. Kudos to the team who created Radwood and kudos to Hagerty for keeping the vibe and injecting some cash into it so events could be scheduled far enough in advance to make it easier to plan for. 

my only sad for the weekend aside of not enough sleep was I could have had the only Skyline there, but the ride back in Brad's 911 was much more pleasant 2500-2800rpm in 6th cruise than my car screaming 4000+rpm in 5th with basically no muffling besides the turbos would have been. Also, not dying in the wet on much more rain friendly tires than I run

I had a friend that attended. They took a Fiero with a 3.4l swap. Looked like there was some really cool stuff there.

Philly is about 3 1/2 hours away, that might be doable.

Just found this thread, thank you Pat, Michael, and Brad.  I really needed that weekend away.  It was great seeing everyone in person.  
 

Patrick nailed it as far as the vibe goes, these shows are so laidback. Even the utter E36 M3 weather at the beginning of the day didn't faze anyone. One the rain let up some guys took leaf blowers to their Ferraris, Lambos, etc. that's not a sentence you'll hear at many shows.  

 

I should have coordinated better so we all went on the tour. Hendrick's private collection is mind blowing. If anyone has a chance  to see it do so. I couldn't speak for a solid five minutes when we went in. 

You'll need to log in to post.
