• 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:

        About the Event...
        MPACT was created by an enthusiast for the enthusiast. The ultimate goal was to bring an event to the east coast that would offer more than the standard "car show" that we have grown accustomed to. MPACT offers an assortment of activities to entice the senses and keep your heart rate up all day long. (don't worry we do still have a judged car show w/ awards) We have a taste of everything for everyone. The BEST PART is: You can choose to Spectate or Participate in the event.

        I had to ditch it because my birthday was Saturday and my wife planned a big party for me, and I had a minor issue with the car. I did run the day before at the slipstream event and my car ran well. I had a ton of fun and was hitting 145 mph at the end of 1600 ft.

        My plan was to originally stay for the morning mpact roll event but i had a issue on my last run on Friday with my front fender lining coming loose on a run and grinding/burning on my tire and ultimately shredding the lining/tire pressure sensor. I cut out the rest of the lining but decided not to run anymore.

        I heard mpact was a ton of fun, sorry I missed it but it is what it is...

        Some people told me this years mpact was the best BMW show they have ever attended.
