Guys, I've tracked my E55 at Road Atlanta a month ago and I've driven the ring twice this year. I'm headed to the Tail of the Dragon next month and I'm just tickled that there are actually Benz owners who know how to track their cars.

Reach out to me, I feel like the only E55 owner who knows what an apex is...

Track Days

I've done two track days this year, one at Road Atlanta and one at Texas World Speedway. Oh, and I've visited the Nurburgring twice and rented a BMW (not as much fun as my E55, but I don't think I would run my E55 on the ring until I had built up about 100 laps).

What a blast to get out there and hammer on the competition in a safe environment like track days!

Road Atlanta

Thanks for the link, I have a picture taken the exact same place as the one on your Avatar - what a track!

If I can make it, I'll email you.

Did you drive the old 13.7 mile Nordschleife (Northern Loop)?
I don't think anything else compares to it.

Hi All:

Some photos from Putnam Park April 21st and Autobahn Country Club on June 2nd!

With just five weeks until our August 18th track day at Autobahn Country Club’s (near Chicago) full 3.56 mile road course, we are well over ½ full. If you'd like to join us for the Autobahn II (August 18th) event or any remaining MVP Track Time track day in 2008, visit us at:

Track Day Registration

Our first weekend event September 13th & 14th at Blackhawk Farms (BHF) near Rockford, Illinois is fast approaching as well. We are ½ full for BHF so don’t delay.

Don't hesitate to contact me at Feffman@MVPTrackTime.com if you have any questions. Happy Motoring and I hope to see you at the track!

Feff
