[COVERAGE] M Invasion

June 10th, 2016 by Elusive Media

This is the 2nd year running of M Invasion. For owning a ///M car, i somehow missed the first year, but happy to put this on my schedule for events to cover. All ///Ms everywhere, what isn’t there to enjoy? Great sponsors, cars, music, giveaways, and people. As much as everyone loves to watch everyone exit from the show, a local cop sat outside the exit to keep everyone safe and make the day without any incidents!

[COVERAGE] MPACT 2015 Motorsports Festival and Car Show

July 17th, 2015 by Elusive Media

We all lucked out with a picturesque drive into the Poconos mountains with temperatures in the lower 80s and sunny. This summer has seen a lot of rain so far, so everyone was super stoked to have a rain free event. This is the 2nd year at Pocono Raceway and MPACT separates itself from any other event by combining what we all love, motorsports and car shows. Rolling Race on the tri-oval, HPDE on the inside tracks, Dyno, drifting with a drift taxi, and the burnout contents kept car enthusiast’s busy between checking out vendors and cars. Before the day came to a close, awards were given out the car show, rolling race, & Dyno HP shootout winners along with some bragging rights.

Huge congrats to the MPACT team for another fantastic event!!

[COVERAGE] MPACT 2014 Motorsports Festival and Car Show

July 15th, 2014 by Elusive Media

MPACT sets the benchmark for all further car shows from here on out! The event which has been held in Inner Harbor, Baltimore, MD for the past 3 years has grown into more than just a show, but a day packed with a track day, rolling race, and drifting all held at the well known Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania. For whatever reason you had for attending, there was enough to keep both spectators and participate busy all day long.

Enjoy the photos and look forward to next years event!!

[COVERAGE] MPACT East ’13

September 23rd, 2013 by Elusive Media

MPACT returns for its 3rd Annual BMW & Exotic Car Festival located in the heart of Baltimore, MD. A highlight of the show is even before you arrive, the caravan. With many attendees coming from afar, last years caravans had over a 100 cars, and as expected large groups arrived again this year with a helicopter to record them as they arrive! NCC Autocross shows up again this year for anyone that is willing test your skills on the Auto-X. Besides Auto-X many vendors(SlipStream Racing Events and ProTuning Freaks Titled Sponsors) came out to support the Car Festival and the Wounded Warrior Project Charity. This is by far one of my favorite shows to attend, not only do you get to go on a good long cruise with many of your fellow car enthusiast, but the sheer volume of clean BMW M cars & Exotics; no other show can match. Last year MPACT makes a large donation of $5000 to the Wounded Warrior Project, looking forward to see how well we did this year! Enjoy the coverage and see you next year!

[COVERAGE] MPACT 2012

September 16th, 2012 by Elusive Media

MPACT is a pretty long day, up at 6am and just under 375miles round trip, but there are many reasons that make this show worth the drive. For one, it’s located in the beautiful downtown Baltimore inner harbor area. With that location, within ~150 miles, you have NYC, Philly, DC, Harrisburg, Allentown, & Richmond, so you end up seeing some fresh cars that you normally don’t see at local shows. Another reason is the caravans on the drive down, no way better to start the early trip than with a bunch of your fellow car enthusiasts. There was also said to have a helicopter follow some of the caravans, but i see one in the air, but did see it at the event; will be interesting to see what they ended up getting from the air.
This year MPACT stepped it up with having having an AutoX event and the ever so popular dyno was back again. If you go to enough of these events, you know food & drinks usually ends up with a nice long wait, this year they added a few more vendors and variety of food, with one being “Snowball Experience”…100 different flavors…YES! Overall, everything was improved over last years event. Better use of the parking lots, more food, vendors like VAC Motorsports to Philly McLaren, activities like AutoX & Dyno, and of course 100′s of BWM’s all day with exotics in the mix. Don’t forget this was all put on to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project! Huge Thanks to the Staff of MPACT for putting on a great event. Look forward to 2013!

BimmerStock & Gold Coast Concours ’11

September 26th, 2011 by Elusive Media

This event worried me a bit, because it’s a rain or shine. Myself and everyone else wanting to see this charity event bring in big numbers for Diabetes Research Institute. At one point during the week, it was 70% rain, but as the week progressed, 70% changed to 30% …thankfully. Last year the event saw some rain, and it reduced the number of attendees, but this year the streets of Glen Cove were full of exotics from Ferarri’s, Lamborghini’s , Aston Martin;s, Maserati’s, to Porsche ( & BMW of course). There was no signs of rain from my long 100 mile drive there or back; 80f & and even a bit of sun during the day! I had a great time and look forward to being apart of this charity even next year. Props to Martino Auto Concepts, Glen Cove, sponsors, vendors & bands for all the work they put into making this a successful charity event!

MPACT

June 28th, 2011 by Elusive Media

This was MPACTs first annual BMW and exotic car show. All money raised was donated to Wounded Warrior Project. Location of MPACT was “spot on”; Camden Yards Sports Complex Inner Harbor, Baltimore MD. 3hr drive for us north jersey folk, while only a few hour drive for the VA/DC guys, a good halfway point for everyone. Even with the weather in the low 90s, Sons of the radio(band), along with a DJ kept the music going all day, while the food stand kept everyone full and hydrated. MPACT was one hell of a show for its first year, excellent turnout, Dyno, and amazing raffle prices…ie: 40″ LCD TV, csl style wheels, and a few thousand in certificates; the sponsors really did step it up to make this one event to remember.

As everyone is saying, See you next year MPACT!

M3 KOP Meet

March 28th, 2011 by Elusive Media

Warmer weather is on the move, even though it was only 40F out today (sunny but windy), a few of my fellow M3 owners got together at KOP. After we had enough of the cold, a bunch of us headed over to Champps for some grub. Good times!
