Social Director’s Update – Fall 2023
Social Director’s Update
While enduring a hot few months of record heat, we still had several events planned before the official end of summer with more to come!
At our August chapter meeting, we were treated to a firsthand look at race car driver Tyler Pappa’s E92 M3 which he currently races and recently competed in the Race to the Clouds at Pikes Peak, Colorado. Tyler is the owner of Bimmer Service by TySpeed, a big supporter and sponsor of our chapter. The Deutscher Club of Clark once again graciously hosted our meeting.
We had a great turnout at the Cars and Coffee in Holmdel on August 27. The weather cooperated, and we saw many happy faces enjoying the reprieve from the recent high temperatures we’ve had all summer. With people coming and going, we had about 200 cars attend. The relaxed atmosphere made for a family friendly affair as we saw many youngsters accompanying their parents. We even had curious non-BMW owners stop by to take a peek and inquire about the event. There was a great mix of young and old car enthusiasts mingling with each other while sharing the passion for BMW. We are certainly looking forward to the next one!
On perhaps one of the rainiest days at summer’s end, we hosted Bimmer Day with Open Road BMW of Edison for a collaborative event which drew quite a crowd despite the weather. The forecast for September 10 did not even deter guests who drove from Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and even the furthest regions of New Jersey like Cape May and Mahwah! Everyone got a little wet, but attendees spent time under the protected facade of the newly built facility of Open Road BMW and mingled. DRIP Coffee Catering was present to serve complimentary coffee and breakfast pastries.
On October 14 and 15, our last track days will be at our Shenandoah Driver School weekend and will be our last HPDE event for the 2023 season, taking place in West Virginia at the Summit Point Raceway. Whether you are a novice or seasoned veteran of the track, sign up to see what the fun is all about!
