A note from Dino:

What with the F1 race in Austin taking up much of our attention, I was amazed at the continued great turnout for the Motorsports Gathering.  From my vantage point, I could count 15 Ford GTs!  15!  I can't remember seeing that many in one grouping before.  Thanks to the guys for bringing them out and being our honored marque.

Speaking of that, I recently read an email from a disgruntled attendee, that he and his friend and their cars, were not given the 'love' that they felt they deserved, insofar as a prime parking spot goes.  As popular as the 'Gathering' has become, this is put together on a volunteer basis by a small group of long time friends, whose passion leans towards exotic cars.  While we feature different marques and themes every month, exotic cars (primarily European) is the foundation, and will remain the core.  Everything else is an augment, and as a result will be parked more towards the periphery.  Everyone would appreciate it that if instead of making a scene at what is supposed to be a fun, low stress event, you realize the nature of the event, grab a spot, have some coffee and enjoy the morning.  Life is too short.  There are no egos or snobbery towards anyone or their cars.  Just realize the exotic nature of the core and act accordingly.

On behalf of the 'Usual Suspects', I want to thank everyone for staying out of the fire lanes, as well as not drag racing in front of the event.  I've got a full newsletter this week.  Don't miss the drive to Prescott next week (info below).  So, enough from me...

Until next time...

Ciao...

Dino
