What a great event it was. Starting with the ALMS race at Road America where the #90 M3 won the GT Class, the week-long festival had a Concours d'Elegance, drivers school, gymkhana, TSD rally, autocross, car control clinic, and club races. The host hotel, with a nice beach on the lake, was only 2.5 miles from the Road America paddock. I've been to 16 of these events, and this might have been my favorite.
