        So step one is to find a group (or groups) that would be willing to do that, and then look at their schedule and pick one of the tracks / dates, and see if they will do it there.
        Earlier I mentioned Vintage Racer Group because I believe they have done something similar in the past, BUT they do it with established organizations like VDCA, EMRA, BMWCCA CR, etc.
        The hard part for something like this will be that there is no org, no infrastructure, insurance, Motorsport Reg account, etc.

        If we do it as a few have posted, just all push into a sign up at some Club or Chapter's event as entrants, no way will we all end up in the same run group.
        Some of us sure, but all of us never.
        We could of course all paddock together which will be good fun, but if the real hope if for an all E30M3 run group its not going to be an easy thing.

        Its fun to talk about what track will be best, but the daunting thing will be getting a non-established, non-club, all E30M3 run group, comprised of widely varied skill level and prep into "someone's" track day / weekend LOL.
        not sure having everything from street cars to modified race cars with novice to experienced race drivers in the same run group would be that much fun.....for a whole day. maybe for one short session for photo ops. rest of day run in groups of similar prep/experience levels at a club event like BMWCCA. if we all just pick a bmwcca event somewhere and sign up it would be a whole lot simpler than trying to carve out a whole run group for a day. then we just need to work on a short lunch parade lap photo op/grid line up picture, common paddock area and end of day Keg of appropriate libations.....

        the New Jersey bmwcca event at summit point in July would be perfect. HPDE/Club Race combo that is traditionally well attended.

          I think thats a great plan. Is that the NJ event also Geoff Atkinson Memorial race weekend as well? If yes that would be a very nice thing.
