    • MPACT East coming July 12, 2014 - BMW, European, and Exotic 1/2 mile side by side racing, car show, and high performance driving event

      Dear East Coast automotive enthusiasts, here is an event you will want to take notice of. MPACT 2014 will be held July 12, 2014 on the East Coast. Where exactly? In Pennsylvania at the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond. Yes, as the M in the name denotes BMW's are a central theme of the event but the event has expanded to included many of your favorite Europe and Exotic high performance automobiles.


      So why go? Well unlike some events where it is just a bunch of standing around that gets very boring very quickly the cars will actually be allowed to do what they were designed to do. High performance driving events including 1/2 mile side by side racing on the oval roadcourse, road course track driving instruction, dyno shootout, burnout contest, drift showcase, car show, etc.

      Here are the featured events and attractions within the event:

      • Judged Car Show (Multiple vehicle classes)
      • NASA HPDE Road Course Track Day
      • 1/2 Mile Roll Racing on Tri-Oval (W/ MPH display)
      • Trap Speed Competition ($CASH Prizes to be announced)
      • "Beast of the East" (Someone will take home the bragging rights for 2014)
      • Drift Showcase
      • Dyno w/ HP Shootout ($CASH Prizes)
      • Drift Taxi (Take the ride of your life in the Sarli Motorsports S62 powered Drift Taxi)
      • Burnout Contest (Winner takes home a voucher towards a set of tires)
      • Official MPACT Models
      • Vendor Showcase
      • Product Demonstrations
      • Vendor track sessions
      • Vendor ride-a-longs / Give-a-ways
      • VIP Area
      • Afterparty
      • Multiple Classes / CASH $$ Prizes / Awards

      Sound good? It should because that puts certain BMW shows that I have attended to shame. Entry is $25 per person and the event starts at 10:30 AM EST but if you are participating in the high performance driving events drivers need to be at the track by 7:00 AM EST.

      There will be more details to come as the event gets closer but mark this one down whether you happen to have a BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Domestic, Exotic, whatever.

      Feel free to follow the announcements on the MPACT facebook page in the meantime: https://www.facebook.com/Mpacteast

      Registration is here: http://www.mpacteast.com/#!registration/cn7e

      Get of the computer and go look at some cars in real life! Feel free to message @Jaycent@MPACT with any questions.

        HPDE is tempting. Car shows are cool, but as Sticky said, they can be boring too. Depends if I have the 308 ready for the PVGP car show which is the following weekend back in Pittsburgh. Hmmmm....

        Also...
        I cant believe there will actually be a roll on event on east coast for once...i might be making a hefty drive. Its really only $25 for all day runs? I wonder how many we might get in....

        Well after some more digging I see its $250...knew that was too good to be true. idc I still want to. I see its limited to 120 people...man i hope i can register quick enough before it fills up. I would also do the track driving for $100 but dont want to miss out on the roll ons...i wonder if they are running them at the same time or how that is gunna work. IF there is plenty of wheel time to be had...then i cant wait to do this.

        Not sure what is going on with this. I believe the registration date changed twice and now it just says that it will be open soon (with no date).
