Anyone in the area want to do a get together when the weather breaks? Post or email me directly, maybe all 5 of us could meet and greet, the local Lambo guy wants to attend, and sell you something. Let me know!! :D

That would be great-depending on timing and location-obviously. But, if possible, I would. Not sure on location, but just as one of many possibilities is Mid Ohio or Columbus (where I am :)). I believe the AMLS is in July at Mid Ohio-so that is a great place, but much later in year. We can see what happens.

ANYONE else close and like to join in? The more the better, if we get enough (more than 2 ) I will ask Audi North America help/join us. They are about 7 miles from my home and have been VERY helpfull and interested in anything customer related :) Is there a track in the Toledo area we can utilize?

Why not make it a "Dragon" run? Deal's Gap, 11 miles with 317 corners! Many sports car clubs meet in the Knoxville area and run the Dragon as part of their meet. I would be happy to make the arrangements for rooms and logistics.

For SURE we would have a southren BBQ at my house during the meet. April or May would a be great time frame. If there is interest I will work a couple of the other boards for more R8 owners to join us. This location might encourage the NY/NJ and FL guys to come.

Suburban Collection. They are a large dealership that sells everything from Mazda to Bugatti.

What color combo did you get? I'm in Troy so you must be in the Farmington area.

I got phantom black and all black extended leather. When I trade this in for the next model, Ill probably get a little more customized. When I ordered, they didn't know I could go exlusive :/

The dealer is in Farmington, but I'm in Dearborn.

My thinking is that Friday & Sat would be the easiest for most, allowing Sun for return travel. However Sat & Sun is doable as well. While these dates may be in the future, if we are to have a GTG there is planning that must be done NOW.

The problem with 5/24 & 5/25 is those dates are right on top of Memorial Day. Too much traffic putting us and our R8's in harms way. IMHO it is best to stay away from holiday weekends.

As with most dates, I am never 100% sure way ahead---but, I can't do May 2-3 for sure, as I will be on west coast (firm date). But, don't plan around me, as I am traveling almost every week. Also labor day is not good. Having said all that, it will be nice if I can ( and I will try), just probably always a 50-50 thing--so plan for others first.

My R8 is in las Vegas until we return to Ohio in June. It would be great to get together somewhere in M/I/O thereafter. I probably could get the Cleveland Ferrari/lambo guys to join in. Someone mentioned The Dragon. Its a great run but a 10hr haul from M/I/O. I'd rather just focus on getting together and comparing notes within a 3/4 hour drive of Cleveland.
