I doubt we'll ever see anything like this in Europe, but I've got my 2 month USA tour with my GT from mid-July to mid-September, if somehow this comes up shortly after that before the car flies off in early November then count me in!
Will you be in or near California at all Shmee?

Shmee150,
Will you post your itinerary? I’m sure many of us could rendezvous with you along your trip.

Without meaning a total thread hijack, the basic outline is along the following: Detroit -> New York -> Philadelphia -> Atlanta -> Miami -> Houston -> Las Vegas -> LA -> Pebble Beach -> San Francisco and then a bit more LA time before a hopeful 2019 rally happens! Depending when it is, I'll go back to Europe in September but leave the car in the USA and then come back to join and tie in some more bits and pieces.

Perhaps I should make a thread about this and see what can come together along the way,

There are a number of us in Atlanta and some nice mountain drives close by. Hit us up!

And kudos for taking your car on the 'ring

Let me know when you are coming through Houston I will organize another event. We have alot of owners in Houston (and the surrounding areas) that are very active.

Definitely start a new thread. I'm sure many forum members would love to meet up along the way.
Ping me when you're in Vegas.

I'm hoping to get Tim out to Spring Mountain for some fun!

Maybe we could set up something in the DC, Maryland and Virginia area as you pass through from Philadelphia? If it works out for you I will coordinate the event.

I will be passing through St. Petersburg between stops in Sarasota and Tallahassee.

Can I count on @Sinovac to organize the event? Nothing elaborate. Perhaps some college girls dressed in white to toss rose petals in my path?

Don't know if I will have time to stop, but I will be sure to blow kisses. All are invited. Until then, ta ta!

My apologizes to Vegas and its GT members. Consider adding a Scottsdale AZ visit as we have a Cars & Coffee (C&C) every first Saturday of the month that you will be impressed with. I believe Houston also has a great C&C and you should consider scheduling your stops at cities with great C&Cs.

Toronto Would be nice there’s the hockey Hall of Fame, Multimatic and Motorsport race track that’s a winning combo no matter how you cut it.
Just saying!
Truth be told I’ll go anywhere there’s a rally!
DBK is and will always be my favorite camp counselor!

I was thinking the same thing Xcentric. Guess we don't deserve any of this love thing when we pass through.
