    • 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

        That's it though, right? There is the RO2RO and then Mpact the day after. Something in LI or central - north NJ would be great

        ha be greatful its that close to you...Im all the way down here in NC. 700miles to the event for me...

        Mpact and RO2RO are literally back to back and at the same location...only difference is idk why anyone would ever do RO2RO...its $100 more and on a friday...and spectating is $50....F that. Wait till the next day and save $100 and spectating is like $15-25 i think i read....and there is a ton more to do....

        There is something down here in GA but its not roll on racing and they start from a dig and go 1/2mile....GAY...as I have zero traction until ~65mph

        I was originally set to do RO2RO earlier in the month but since they changed it to Friday in July, I can no longer attend due to work obligation. I'm really trying to go to this, but hope some or all of the cars from RO2RO can make it so it's interesting. There were some heavy hitters slated for that

        Not a heavy hitter by this sites standards. I'm in a BT GTI. I could have taken down your S6 judging by your trap. I should be able to take down Evolve Supercharged M3's after a few more modifications I have in the mail but thats pretty much my limit I think.

        I'm just hoping to surprise people. I know I def wont win em all...but hopefully some.

        Come to the event and see... there are cars there with over 1k hp and cars like mine. There is also another evolve sc m3 pushing more power than mine. I have the base kit. 600 HP at the flywheel. I haven't dynoed my car yet as its still at the shop.

        Any evolve kit is beast...i started looking into them after I saw your sig. If I can get my 2.0L to beat out your 4.0L Supercharged V8...it will be the most epic accomplishment ever for me. As of right now I can leave you from a 60mph roll and then you run me down and go by me easy anything north of 115mph.....I cant handle that big V8 in the upper speeds...hoping a few more modifications will even out the playing field...or at least prevent you from catching me that much longer until hopefully the 1/2mile mark.....we will see tho...I gotta get the stuff working first and thats a whole other story.

        Make sure and come say hi regardless...it will be easier for you to find me seeing as how I will prob be the only GTI there...LOL its black in case there is also a white one there that makes me look stock...fastest one in the U.S.....which still isnt a heavy hitter compared to most people here...lol

        Have you been to this before? Are you able to beat people? or are you bottom of the food chain and are lucky to win one? God I hope im not one of the slowest people there....what a waste that would be...wonder what the Avg HP car will be....

        @Fireball9298 have you done any roll racing before?
        There will be cars in all different hp levels. I'll try to get my brother in law with k04 DSG to go. Would be good competition unless you have the big turbo in the mail

        RO2RO is donating the proceeds to Paul Walker's charity and is also offering drinks all day with a catered lunch. PLUS there's a lot wider variety of competition, not just Euros.

        North NJ/NYC is a bad area, there just isn't a good "space" to so these kinds of events. Airports usually feature these kinda of events, and there's no way you can rent JFK, Newark or LaGuardia
