Euro Auto Fest in Greenville, SC

October 19, 2019. I will be there with my 2012 Evora S, and I know there's a Lotus dealer in Greenville which will, presumable, bring something from Norwich. The roads just north of Greenville are absolutely fantastic. Anyone planning on going?
(Will attempt to post a link, but I'm a computer dumbass, so ...)

Have been there several times, but these last few years was same weekend as something else, often Petit LeMans. Our 2011 Evora won some distiction there when the Evora was still new to the public.

What is the featured marque this year? Used to be at BMW plant, where is it now?Always some remarkable stuff to see.

The big BMW Oktoberfest is in Greenville (and surrounding areas) all week, ending on October 19. I will be there in my 1M so it looks like good timing.

This year itís the weekend after Petit. Might be time for a return. I wonder if there is a category for the LC 500? If youíre in the show you sure do get to park a lot better!

I'm thinking about going but I might be out at Spring Mountain playing instead.

Later,

I might be there with my 97 Esprit V8 (coming from Fort Mill). I wouldn't count too much on the Greenville dealership participating, I have not heard many good things about them. And they have not returned any of my calls inquiring about service on my car, not even a courtesy call to say "we don't have a qualified tech for the older cars".
